New York--Although the jewelry choices were more subdued at the 56th annual Grammy Awards, which took place Sunday in Los Angeles, gold pieces with brightly colored gemstones were a popular accessory among attending celebrities.
Earrings and rings in white, rose and yellow gold were a common sight, as many stars wore high-neckline gowns, which mean fewer necklaces and more adornment on the fingers and ears.
Color also was highly visible on drop earrings and cocktail rings, with many pieces boasting semi-precious gemstones, such as spinel, hematite and opal.
Jewelry at the show was noticeably less glamorous than in past years, which could be attributed to a change in attitude among younger consumers, a change that is manifesting itself in music. Two of the night’s big winners, rapper Macklemore and New Zealand singer Lorde, are known for touting a less-than-lavish lifestyle in their music.
Still, jewels were present, just in a more toned-down manner. Click through this slideshow to see the Grammy Awards jewelry.
