A diamond night at the 2016 Brit Awards

The red carpet jewellery oozed London chic, with diamonds proving a smash hit at this year’s Brit Awards.

Red carpet jewellery Kylie Minogue Chopard

Some of the biggest names in music lit up London last night with their red carpet jewellery as they stepped out for the 2016 Brit Awards.

A radiant Kylie Minogue outshone starlets half her age in a sequined Ralph & Russo dress teamed with sparkling diamond jewellery from Chopard. The newly engaged pop princess wore a double-strand diamond necklace from the Haute Joaillerie collection, along with a pair of diamond and rose gold Chopard earrings.

Adele wore David Morris palm earrings, a diamond eternity ring and a diamond Lotus ring to collect one of her awards at the Brits.

Adele was the undisputed star of the night, sweeping up four awards including the Global Success Award, and setting a new record for the most successful solo artist in one year. Her glittering performance was matched by her red carpet jewels, which included two David Morris diamond rings and a pair of white gold and diamond earrings in the shape of a flower.

Never one to shy away from attention, Rihanna’s racy on-stage gyrating with ex-boyfriend Drake sent Twitter into overdrive, but there was also plenty of praise for her glamorous red carpet outfit. She teamed her slinky lilac Armani Prive dress with a pair of Jack Vartanian diamond earrings, a stack of diamond bracelets and ring by Casa Reale, and a selection of Asprey rings. Before stepping onto the stage, she changed into an all-white outfit accessorised with a diamond and sapphire statement necklace by Le Vian.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wore a Messika diamond choker, and a diamond ring and earrings by VANLELES to the Brit Awards. 

While the tabloid headlines focused on the jewels that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wasn’t wearing - notably her wedding ring - the X Factor judge ramped up the glamour by piling on the diamonds. Wearing a barely-there yellow dress by Zuhair Murad, her tumbling hair was pinned back to show off a pair of VANLELES diamond ear cuffs and a choker-style Messika diamond necklace.
