Last year, the Spring/Summer New York Fashion Week in September was promptly followed by fashion’s biggest night, aka the 2021 Met Gala. In 2022, the event coincides with television’s biggest night of the year — the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards — which took place on Sept. 12. The high-profile gathering recognizes the most outstanding talent in national primetime programming — but you shouldn’t underestimate its jewelry potential, either. Fresh off of the NYFW front rows, celebrities arrived at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, all primed and ready to showcase their best jewelry looks at the 2022 Emmys ceremony.

The most sparkling attendees of the night went all out with lustrous rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and hair accessories that were covered with dozens of diamonds. Meanwhile, other celebs like Laverne Cox and Julia Garner, topped off their red carpet fashions with a single piece like a pair of earrings, as to not take away from their dazzling attire. All in all, the best bling of the night is sure to offer you a ton of inspiration, no matter your personal jewelry preference.
