Dressing Like the Stars: Celebrity Jewelry Looks from the 2018 VMAs

During the Video Music Awards, we got to see so many celebrities flaunt the latest and greatest fine jewelry trends of today. Read on to see two of our favorite trends from the red carpet, as well as how to get the look for yourself!

Dressing Like the Stars: Celebrity Jewelry Looks from the 2018 VMAs

The Video Music Awards (VMAs) are one of the most dazzling and star-studded events of the year. Musical icons from across industry take to the red-carpet ceremony, dressed in the best of the best of designer fashion.

This year, the jewelry worn by the music industry’s top stars stole the show. From spectacular diamond earrings to beautiful emerald handpieces, the industry's top jewelry stylists went all out to dress their stars with the best.

If you’re looking to match some of the hottest the jewelry looks of the VMAs our skilled jewelry stylists at Costello Jewelry Company can help guide you in the right direction. In this article, we’ll review some of the 2018 VMAs top jewelry pieces, as well as how you can add similar pieces to your collection.

Earrings of Note at the 2018 VMAs

Of all the jewelry pieces of note at the VMAs this year, the diamond earring styles were undoubtedly one of the most impressive. Jennifer Lopez, for instance, sported a pair of sparkling diamond earrings from the 2018 Tiffany Blue Book Collection. She wasn’t alone either as Karlie Kloss stunned paparazzi with a pair of diamond chandelier earrings by Wempe Jewelers.

There are plenty of available diamond earring pieces that you can purchase to match this red carpet look. If you have your eye on Karlie Kloss’s earpieces, some of the diamond chandelier earrings by Doves By Doron Paloma will make the perfect fit as a recreation. Glamorous, dressed in diamonds, and accented in gold, these chandelier earrings are already red carpet ready.

If Jennifer Lopez’s earring choice captivates you, the pieces found in Tacori’s Bloom Earring collection might whet your fine jewelry appetite. These earrings are set with large diamond stones and have options for accenting yellow and rose gold. These aren’t ordinary diamond earrings, and they will undoubtedly steal the show at any formal event.

Gorgeous Emeralds at the 2018 VMAs

There were plenty of gemstone jewelry pieces at the VMAs this year, but few gemstone designs were as striking as the emerald jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz Columbian that Cardi B wore to the event. The emerald is the most brilliant stone of all other gemstones, and Cardi B looked flawless wearing it. Although it is important to note that all totaled, Cardi B's collection of gems was estimated to cost a whopping 4 million dollars.

Unfortunately, 4 million dollars’ worth of emerald jewelry isn’t necessarily the most accessible choice. On the other hand, plenty of designers have created emerald jewelry styles that look as though they may be worth 4 million dollars.

Simon G is one of the many designers that understand the value of a truly green emerald. In their Passion Collection, they have crafted a variety of emerald rings that are surrounded by a luxurious halo of shimmering crystal-clear diamonds. This contrast of emerald and diamond makes for a striking piece that would successfully blend in with some of the emerald pieces Cardi B wore at the VMAs.

If you’re looking for a pair of emerald earrings fit for the VMA red carpet, some of the earring pieces by Oscar Heyman might be the perfect pick. Set with a massive center emerald, and surrounded by diamond petals, it is a wonder that they aren’t priced at 4 million dollars.
