The 2020 award season has given us many memorable jewelry looks on the red carpet, and we’re breaking down our favorites.
The 77th Annual Golden Globes
The Golden Globes had several moving moments ranging from Awkwafina making a historic win for her role in The Farewell– becoming the first Asian performer to win in a leading role, to Kate McKinnon giving a heartfelt presentation to Ellen DeGeneres for the Carol Burnett Award. The fashion is always more playful at the Golden Globes and this year we got to see some great statement jewelry pieces. This is our list for Golden Globe best jewelry:

The 62nd Grammy Awards
The Grammys were somber this year, as the ceremony took place only hours after the death of Los Angeles Laker’s star Kobe Bryant and others in a helicopter crash. There were many big moments including a sweep by young star Billie Eillish. The real show was the jewelry worn on the Grammy carpet. Below are some of our favorites.
Lizzo in Lorraine Schwartz: Breakout star Lizzo was stunning in a white Atelier Versace gown that was embellished with Swarovski crystals, old Hollywood glam waves, and completed the look with Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace and earrings.
Billy Porter in a design by Alexis Bittar: The Pose star has been giving us jaw-dropping red carpet looks again and again, and the Grammys were no exception. He stunned us with a blue sequined Baja East outfit by Scott Studenberg that featured a wide-brimmed hat complete with strands of beads that could move to cover his face. For us, the look was completed with a spider bracelet designed by Alexis Bittar.
Camilla Cabello in Le Vian: Camilla donned a black gothic Versace gown and completed it with a $2 million dollar diamond Le Vian collar necklace.
Ariana Grande in Lorraine Schwartz: Ariana wore a light gray Giamattista Valli gown and completed the look with jaw-dropping diamonds studs from Lorraine Schwartz- studs priced at $2.5 million.
The 92nd Academy Awards
History was made this year as Parasite became the first non-English language film to take home Best Picture. The Oscars also gave us some great jewelry moments as some very memorable necklaces, bracelets, and earrings hit the red carpet. Here are some of our favorites.
