Also adding to the glam, Cardi B sparkled in $5 million worth of Gismondi 1754 diamond necklaces, while Camila Cabello chose a $2 million Le Vian collar necklace.

Billie Eilish was the big winner at Sunday’s 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, taking home five trophies, including record of the year and best new artist, but jeweler Lorraine Schwartz captured the night’s red-carpet attention for the sparkling jewels worn by stars that included Ariana Grande and Lizzo.

Priyanka Chopra paired her Ralph & Russo caftan-style gown with pink and white diamonds totaling $1 million by the New York-based Schwartz, while Klum opted for Schwartz’s diamond drops on a long chain, matched with a diamond bracelet and multiple rings, all valued at $2.5 million. Fold in the high-profile looks for Lizzo and Ariana Grande and Schwartz’s red-carpet placements totaled more than $16 million. 

But Schwartz wasn’t the only A-list jeweler at the Grammys — from crystal-embellished pieces to one-of-a-kind diamond designs, here are some of the night’s boldest looks: 

Lizzo in Lorraine Schwartz

A multi-Grammy winner Sunday night, Lizzo turned up early on the red carpet, channeling a Diana Ross vibe in a curvaceous white beaded gown with matching faux fur stole by Atelier Versace; she paired the look with with a double-V diamond necklace, custom diamond earrings and diamond rings all by Lorraine Schwartz, valued at more than $2 million. 

Ariana Grande in Lorraine Schwartz

Twitter kicked into overdrive when Ariana Grande arrived on the Grammys red carpet in a custom gray silk-tulle ballgown by Giambattista Valli; with such a dramatic gown, Grande’s stylist, Law Roach, kept the jewelry simple: a pair of Lorraine Schwartz platinum-set diamond studs totaling 30 carats and valued at $2.5 million. For her onstage performance, Grande switched out the studs for a suite of Colombian emeralds and diamonds also by Schwartz: teardrop earrings crafted with 64 carats of Colombian emeralds and diamonds, a marching diamond necklace with a pendant featuring a 15-carat diamond and 60-carat Colombian emerald and a diamond ring. Total value of Grande’s onstage look: a cool $8 million. 

Camila Cabello in Le Vian

Cardi B in Gismondi 1754

She didn’t walk the red carpet, so many Grammys viewers missed Cardi B’s sparkling Mugler gown, paired with diamond necklaces by Italian high-jewelry brand Gismondi 1754. Massimo Gismondi worked with Cardi B’s stylist, Kollin Carter, and Mugler creative director Casey Cadwallader, crafted a one-of-a-kind, eight-strand necklace of diamonds in graduating sizes, layered with a diamond-drop necklace to create a diamond collar effect over the high mesh necklace of Cadwallader’s beaded Mugler gown.
