The Grammy Awards red carpet is seldom surprising except last night, when much of the jewelry I saw being worn by the music industry’s A-listers was, atypically, quite tame. In many cases, in fact, at the 58th annual Grammy Awards, the jewels were downright classic.

Actually, the majority of pieces were so conventional gem chokers, stud earrings, and cocktail rings, for example that even Ryan Seacrest seemed comfortable. (I did spot a septum ring on Tove Lo, though I suspect the singer wasn’t interviewed by Mr. Seacrest, while he was co-hosting a red carpet pre-show special on the E! channel.)

The tendency toward traditional was common among twenty-something style setters. From  in studs and a Lorraine Schwartz choker and ruby cocktail ring, to her BFF Selena Gomez in Norman Silverman Diamond hoops and a David Webb cocktail ring, the two female artists looked equally comfortable in their fresh-yet-still-simple Atelier Versace and Calvin Klein dresses, too.

When deciding what to wear, Grammy-goers and Globe attendees are both drawing closer toward the middle. In jewelry, a perfect example is the multi-finger ring trend, something I realized was everywhere at this year’s SAGs and Golden Globes. It was a red carpet staple — and, truthfully, perhaps the strongest single trend. Will it last? It’s hard to tell. Although, with less than two weeks till the Oscars, that’s one trend you can count on seeing.
