Jewelry doesn’t always need to be a bold statement. The stars who graced the red carpet of the PCAs opted for sophisticated and elegant pieces to embellish their looks.
The 42nd People’s Choice Awards took place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, hosted by Jane Lynch, honored the general public’s favorite work and people of pop culture in 2015.
Melissa McCarthy, The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Ellen Degeneres, and Taylor Swift were the big winners of the night.
On the red carpet, precious and often discreet jewelry accents highlighted each celebrity’s style and personality, from classic shapes to contemporary designs. Earrings, bracelets, and rings were the most favored pieces.

Kate Hudson shone in a strapless white jumpsuit by British designer Stella McCartney, highlighted by a stunning pair of Jorge Adeler aquamarine and diamond earrings.

Claire Danes kept it simple yet very sophisticated with Kwiat jewelry to compliment her backless metallic Burberry gown and polished beauty.
Kwiat was also the choice of Elen Pompeo, who showed off a pair of refined, sharp hoop earrings along with her Mikael Kors Collection black button-down ensemble.
Lucy Hale went for classic but slightly dramatic black Vanessa Leu earrings, which beautifully framed her “victorian goth” look. The young actress stood out in a lace-up neckline and sheer paneled dress by Self Portrait.
Amber Valletta was fresh, natural, and highly fashionable in a pale, figure-hugging cut-out Balmain dress embellished with a beautifully simple and edgy set of diamond choker and armband by Jennifer Fisher.
On a more traditional note, Marcia Gay Harden displayed a spectacular pair of silver and green earrings by Bulgari along with her long, sophisticated Kevan Hall teal velvet gown.
Julianne Hough’s Forevermore Diamonds ear cuff was a discreet fashion statement on the red carpet. The actress kept her jewelry original but sophisticated to tone down and enrich her vampy look.
