Any awards show attendee knows that no outfit is really complete without brilliant retina-searing jewels. And if the past serves as any indicator, then we foresee our favorite TV stars dripping in diamonds tonight for the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Last year, Anna Faris brought sexy back. She literally turned heads, thanks to the 19th-century emerald-and-diamond Fred Leighton salamander brooch affixed onto the back of her canary yellow Monique Lhuillier gown. In 2010, Emily Blunt elevated her ’do with quite possibly the most decadent hair pin ever—an exquisite platinum-and-diamond floral piece by Lorraine Schwartz. And in 2007, Debra Messing brought the bling with long teardrop diamond Cartier earrings that grazed her shoulders.

Yes, the dress plays a major role, but it’s the jewelry that’s the icing on the cake. Take a look at the other 22 scene-stealers from Emmys past.
