The 2013 Grammys have been handed out to a generally more modestly dressed audience this year, as per the CBS memo, but if you thought other elements like jewelry would be ratched up to compensate, you will be disappointed. The one big statement necklace of the evening was wore by Carrie Underwood. Made by Johnathon Arndt, the stunner featured 381 carats of diamonds and is reportedly worth US$31 million.
Clockwise from left: Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys, Jessica Biel. All wearing Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
Other standout pieces of the evening were bold graphic statements in black in white, just like many of the outfits. Alicia Keys’ earrings also featured a snake, and she wore a matching ring.
Snakes were also wrapped around Rihanna’s wrist and fingers courtesy of Neil Lane.
You’ve seen plenty of bejeweled dresses on red carpets, but this one takes it to a new level. Allison William’s Kaufman Franco dress is actually encrusted with black diamonds! She also added some Stephen Webster jewels to top it off.
