Let's Talk About The Bachelorette's Over-the-Top Jewelry

'The Bachelorette'

To distract ourselves from Diggy's elimination, obviously.

Per usual, there was much to unpack on last night's episode of ABC's The Bachelorette. (Why is Lee still here? Why can't Dean stop smiling, and why can't I stop smiling at Dean smiling? How could Rachel send America's best-dressed man, Diggy, home without a hometown date and tour of his collection of 500 shoes?)

But that's neither here nor Hilton Head (where the dates took place). What we're really gathered here today to discuss is Rachel's jewelry. You know, the things that matter.

Before season 13 of The Bachelorette kicked off, stylist Cary Fetman told The Hollywood Reporter that Rachel's obsession with rings would be a polarizing one, seeing as she prefers to stack costume-style jewels for a flashy look. Perhaps she's just preparing her hands to bear the weight of whatever fat Neil Lane Diamond her betrothed chooses to put on her finger?

As she proved last week, Rachel's jewelry motto is (probably) the bigger the better, and this week she continued the trend. She jazzed up her off-the-shoulder powder blue Zara crop top — official summer uniform of basic girls everywhere — by stacking two Nan Fusco diamond fringe rings and a couple of moose antler bangles.  

Let's take a closer look: 

And let's not forget her on-point accessories for her Goodyear Blimp date with the walking veneers, Dean. From a first glance, her gray tank top and embroidered Philip Lim jacket made for a lackluster look — that is, until you take a closer look at the beautiful medley of layered necklaces and gold rings (all eight of them) that add a bit of cool-girl polish to the ensemble. (Swipe for jewelry photos.)

That brings us to Rachel's blinged-out rose ceremony look, where she wore three oversize diamond rings by The Woods Fine Jewelry with her silver beaded Randi Rahm gown, which, honestly, had enough sparkle to blind viewers on its own. 

Shine on, Rachel.
