Jewelry at the Grammys

Colored diamonds showed up on many at the Grammy Awards, according to the Diamond Information Center. Faith Hill and Ashanti sported yellow diamond pinky rings by Mimi So and Faith Evans and the Dixie Chicks wore black and white diamond jewelry by various makers. Aretha Franklin wore an 80-ct. yellow and white diamond necklace with matching 23-ct. earrings.

Gwen Stefani of No Doubt worked the red carpet in a 1940s-inspired dress set off by a large diamond pendant. Singer Vanessa Carlton piled on long pearl strands in black and white. Rapper and Academy-Award nominee Queen Latifah sported jewelry by Chopard.

Men were swathed in jewelry as well: Harvey Fierstein, star of Broadway's Hairspray appeared in drag (he plays a woman in the show), wearing 80-ct. fancy intense yellow diamond cluster earrings and matching pendant. Rappers Nelly, Sean Combs and Busta Rhymes wore diamond studs and several rings, while funk legend Bootsy Collins mixed white and gold metals in rings and necklaces.
