The hottest stars in the music scene wound down the red carpet during the recent MTV Video Music Awards held on August 24, 2014 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. A wild evening of performances is matched by bold and daring outfits accessorized by outrageously-priced and sized jewelry. Apart from a few conventional pieces, glaring and gutsy described the general jewelry fashion statement of the night.

For this post we created a pinterest board dedicated to jewelry pieces that were shown on the red carpet:

Take for instance Rita Ora who veered from the usual focus on jewelry and instead, splurged $56,000 on a luxuriously bejeweled manicure. She had her fingernails painted a blood-red nail polish then blinged with opulent black diamonds and ruby gems. Her manic mani showcased minute handcrafted diamond spiders and ruby bows to create most stunning statement fingernails.

Iggy Azalea, the Australian lady rapper, sashayed down the red carpet shimmering in her sultry Versace cut-out dress which was accessorized by a set of Nasrin Imani necklace and Piaget ring. The cocktail ring is made of 32 brilliant-cut diamonds and 3 pear-shaped diamonds set on 18-carat white gold.

Nina Dobrev was a rocker glam spectacle on the red carpet with her curvy Zuhair Murad dress with a deep plunging neckline. She deliberately kept her towering neck bare and opted instead to wear simple and elegant accessories -- a pair of David Yurman black onyx earrings.

Meanwhile, Nina Dobrev’s BFF and host of Dancing With The Stars, Julianne Hough, wore a flowing, full-volume backless Pucci dress -- this and a pair of Roseark statement earrings worked well with her funky blonde bob.

As usual, Beyonce dressed the part of the ultimate diva on the recent MTV Awards by donning on a dramatic lacy black Nicolas Jebran dress. The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Awardee brought on the bling with a captivating pair of large statement earrings by Lorraine Schwartz.

Jennifer Lopez was a glorious silvery dream in a shimmery cutout Charbel Zoe dress matched with a silver clutch and shoes. The silver motif continued on to her several pieces of Norman Silverman jewelry.

A different Kim Kardashian arrived at the 2014 Emmy’s, wearing a Balmain dress that was described by a fashion editor as “a bunch of stapled-together placemats from Pottery Barn.” The redeeming elements though, were her Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Kelly Rowland flaunted her baby bump in a simple pastel pink gown that highlighted her eye-catching Lorraine Schwartz jewelry -- a pair of spectacular double-tiered chandelier earrings, chunky silver bracelet cuffs and rings.

Taylor Swift had on a unique blue romper and Saab heels and was seen switching up her jewelry throughout the MTV Awards night. She decked herself with her favorite Lorraine Schwartz rings on one hand and Ofira ring bands on the other.

Gwen Stefani rocked a peplum top and black tuxedo trousers blinged with black Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Victoria Justice was at once a sweet and fierce sight with her white bustier top paired with a shiny, spindly black skirt. To not distract from her outfit, she had on round crystal Sorrelli earrings and a Dione Orcini Semiramis Mini Ring In Black Gold.

The Asian American star Arden Cho had a svelte silhouette in a metallic blue strapless dress accessorized with jewels from Bavna’s Spring 2015 collection.
