VMAs: Diamond jewelry worn by Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and more

Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards red carpet looked a little different compared to past years. 

Socially distanced, performers including Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Doja Cat posed for photographers outside arenas across NYC‘s five boroughs and LA.

And despite the COVID-19 pandemic, it was a parade of daring fashions and bling! FEMAIL highlights the jewelry worth taking a closer look at.

Lady Gaga, 34, didn’t let a pandemic stop her from bringing her fashion A-game. 

Over the course of the evening, the 11-time Grammy winner wore nine different showstopping outfits, all of which were made complete with protective face coverings. 

On the carpet she stood tall channeling her inner VMA Moon Man in a textured silver jacket by Area, a clear helmet by Muscarella, and platform boots by Pleasers.

The Born This Way singer accessorized the unique look with a dainty custom necklace by Edward Avedis.  

The delicate bauble is no ordinary necklace. The diamond pendant represents the logo of her latest album, Chromatica, and was designed by jeweler Avedis Guerboian.

‘The Diamond Chromatica Sine symbol was designed for Lady Gaga,’ said Avedis.

‘It’s the mathematical symbol of sound, created in 14K rose gold and diamonds. The design was made to commemorate her new album.’ 

Avedis was originally commissioned by one of Gaga’s friends to create a solid gold pendant for the singer as a gift. He designed the pendant requested and an additional one encrusted with diamonds for the superstar.

Nicole Richie (a.k.a Nikki Fresh) was hard to miss at the ceremony.

She took to social media to declare that she’s “Representing ALL the greens tonight.”

The 38-year-old singer/actress/designer wore an electric gown that was equal parts sexy and dramatic with a high low hem. She carried out her monochromatic look with Christian Louboutin’s Spikaqueen neon leather and PVC pumps with crystal detail.

She was red carpet perfection with Blue-Green Tourmaline Rocket Ship Earrings by rockstar-adored jewelry designer Cathy Waterman.
