The Most Brilliant Golden Globes Jewelry of All Time
Fashion designers may be the ones to create the most buzz when it comes to red carpet dressing, but we all know that no outfit is complete without a flourish of diamonds (they're our best friends, after all). A colorful statement-making bib necklace here or a set of drop earrings (riddled with rare gemstones, we might add) there has the ability to transform an otherwise simple look.
Now that we're counting down to the 74th Golden Globe Awards, we've rounded up the most unforgettable jewels that ever graced the red carpet from the past five years, from the more traditional (like, your average billion-carat diamond necklace) to the most creative (fossilized beetle, anyone?).
Click through to see all the stars who delivered a high-wattage dose of bling with the prettiest, most glamorous extras we've ever seen.
