When Hollywood’s biggest stars hit the Golden Globes’ red carpet on a recent Sunday, they sparkled; but the shine wasn’t necessarily about the clothing. After the obligatory “Who are you wearing?" questions, we finally got to the jewels — and there was some serious bling framing those famous forms and faces.

Forget the weather — the millions of dollars in ice were enough to give anyone chills. Jessica Alba wore a $5.8 million Harry Winston necklace, likely making her the most well-guarded star of the evening. Julianne Moore looked stunning in Bulgari earrings, Kerry Washington was subtle but chic with her Chopard flower ring, and Halle Berry may have struck out with her Atelier Versace gown, but her Madstone geometric hoop earrings were lovely.

Red-carpet jewelry truly is in a league of its own. Here are some budget-friendly finds to help you get that same sparkle, without the extra security detail.
