On the contrary, after listening to performances by Lil Nas X, BTS, and Demi Lovato on the night, Ariana’s eardrums are more than #blessed. But her earlobes, on the other hand, are still bouncing back from the massive Lorraine Schwartz emerald and diamond earrings she rocked during the ceremony.
Ari’s stunning dangly earrings might have been envy-inducing but her ear candy came at a high price — and she’s said so herself. Late last week, the jeweler to the stars posted a closer look at the gems Ari wore on her Instagram. Schwartz spilled all the deets on Ari’s Colombia Emerald set but Ari’s comment on the post turned out to be even more revealing than the informative video.
As noted by viral Instagram account Comments by Celebs, Ari was quick to leave all her feelings about the stunning jewels with a simple comment on Schwartz’s post, admitting that her “earlobes” were “still recovering.”
Despite all the pain though, Ari is over the moon with her jewelry choice and wishes she could’ve kept the set forever. “Those earrings ... they are sorely and deeply missed. I think of them constantly and wish we didn’t have to part,” Ari’s comment continued.
The musician even teased that Lorraine should blame her dog, Toulouse, if the earrings mysteriously vanished. “If they go missing, it was Toulouse,” she quipped.
Ari wore the jaw-dropping (and apparently also earlobe-dropping) rocks as a sparkling accessory for one of her four outfit changes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 64-carat teardrop earrings, matching necklace, and coordinating emerald and diamond ring Ari wore to serenade the crowd with “Thank U, Next” and “Imagine” are worth a whopping $8 million in total. No wonder she misses them! We would too!
While the Lorraine Schwartz earrings may not be taking up permanent residence in Ariana’s jewelry collection, we know that the singer has a taste for the finer things. “7 Rings” is partly inspired by Ari’s love for diamonds so we can’t wait to see what kind of sparklers she shows up in next... and if she ever posts a pic of Toulouse rocking some emerald rocks, our lips are sealed!
