From left, check out Laverne Cox’s elegant vintage Fred Leighton jewels, including platinum-and-diamond earrings from the ’40s and Art Deco diamond brooches that she had sewn into her Marc Bouwer gown. Cox gushed over the Old Hollywood vibe of her look onscreen and for her first outing at the Emmys, we’d say she nailed it. Next was Christina Hendricks, who played up the “sari-inspired” vibe of her Marchesa gown with $390,000 worth of golden jewels from Neil Lane, including carved gold girandole chandelier earrings and tons of flashy bangles. Claire Danes, on the other hand, had to keep her jewels simple as not to compete with the sparkling scarlet-jeweled dragonfly neckline of her Givenchy gown. Delicate Lorraine Schwartz ruby studs did the trick nicely (and popped against her romantic braided updo).

Taylor Schilling adopted one of the night’s big trends: a single statement earring. Hers was a bold cuff courtesy of Forevermark and studded with round and pear-shape diamonds, giving a little edge to her sweet Zuhair Murad gown. Kate Walsh also wasn’t shy with the diamonds, clasping a 95-carat diamond collar from Chopard’s High Jewelry colelction around her neck to rest against her cap-sleeve yellow gown. And Michelle Dockery (who also was wearing funky Ana Khouri pearl ear cuffs) adorned her do with a delicate tiara by the designer: a golden curved circlet held in place by two thin black ribbons woven into her low chignon.
