Blink and you might miss any number of noteworthy jewels gracing one of the largest red—or, in this case, purple—carpets of the year, the annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which took place last Sunday in Los Angeles.

After rounding up our favorite jewels from this year’s edition, a second look brought to our attention some jewels that might take the cake for best of the night.  

Aunjanue Ellis, nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role in “When They See Us,” sported incredible one-of-a-kind Buddha Mama earrings.

The 20-karat gold earrings feature tanzanite, spinel and diamond and retail for $135,000 at Neiman Marcus San Francisco.

Better than taking home a statue if you ask us.
