You’re probably still reeling from last week’s deluge of Met Gala celebrity news but after fashion’s biggest night comes television’s biggest night as the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards rolls into not one but two cities. The event streamed ‘live’ from London as well as LA, offering us a sensational evening of flat-out gorgeous style, beauty and jewellery looks. Oh yes, the event may be celebrating the small screen but Emmy Awards jewellery is always big on bling.
From classic to creative, variety was the order of the evening, with red carpet favourites firing on all cylinders to put on a show worth remembering. This year’s must-see jewellery looks include va-va-voom backlaces, fashion and jewellery coordination, beauty and jewellery coordination, ultra-statement earrings, and of course timelessly jaw-dropping precious jewels that never go out of fashion. Here are the 23 must-see celebrity jewellery looks of the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The Tiffany & Co. ambassador also wore Tiffany diamond earrings, a bracelet, and a natural yellow sapphire gold ring.
