At award shows, a red carpet outfit isn’t fully complete without jewelry. For certain celebrities, this means piling on the dazzling diamond rings and bracelets, while for others, it simply means wearing one big statement piece, which is usually worth more than one can fathom. (Remember Lady Gaga’s $30 million necklace at the 2019 Oscars?) It seems like the stars at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards were keen on sticking to the “more is more” theme when it came to their accessories. The best 2021 Emmys jewelry ranged from a dramatic ear cuff moment (as seen on Billy Porter) to an eye-catching estate necklace on Kathryn Hahn.
Celebrities, with the help of their stylists, always choose jewelry pieces that complement the gown or pantsuit (or otherwise), instead of overpowering it. Take Hahn, who was one of the first celebrity arrivals, and her necklace, which added a pop of color to her black jumpsuit. Or, Rita Wilson who layered multiple necklaces together. Before too much is revealed, scroll ahead to see every single luxurious bauble that popped up on the Emmys red carpet.
By the end of the night, you’ll want to upgrade your own jewelry collection, inspired by what celebrities wore.
