Since our fashion editor Hannah Connorton recently made the move over to the marketing department here, I’ve gladly taken on the duties of highlighting celebrity jewels at awards ceremonies.

At this year’s CMA Awards, earrings, bracelets and rings seemed to take priority over necklaces for a number of the celebrities in attendance. Drop earrings were big, and one singer stepped out wearing asymmetrical earrings, an increasingly popular trend.

Diamond and gold jewelry also were used to accessorize the dresses that lit up the red carpet and stage.

Scroll down to see a few examples who wore what at the night’s events.
