Last month’s Style File offered a guide to dressing in “winter whites,” and at the 66th annual Grammy Awards held Sunday, the jewelry spotlight certainly seemed to be on sparkling diamonds and white metals.  

There were many classic diamond designs, from Beyoncé in Cartier to Miley Cyrus in De Beers, but also a handful of unique choices, like artist Fantasia Barrino’s red-carpet look. 

“The Color Purple” star, styled by Daniel Hawkins, donned diamonds from Messika, including one of the more unique pieces of the night: the “Dancing Moon” lip jewelry from the brand’s “Midnight Sun” high jewelry collection.  

One of my favorite diamond looks, however, was on Céline Dion, who made a surprise appearance. 

The singer shone in diamonds, wearing a handful of Tiffany & Co. jewels, but the star of her look hung around her neck—a Tiffany high jewelry necklace featuring over 87 carats of diamonds set in platinum. 

Dion took the stage to present the “Album of the Year” award to Taylor Swift, who showed up in 300 carats of diamonds from Lorraine Schwartz, a representative for the designer told GQ
As part of a diamond necklace stack, Swift wore a custom piece featuring a Concord vintage watch the designer turned into a choker.
