Country superstar Carrie Underwood rocked the 55th annual Grammy Awards Sunday night with a magnificent diamond necklace valued at $31 million. She also snared two of the prestigious gilded gramophone statuettes.
Her show-stopping necklace, by Beverly Hills designer Johnathon Arndt, featured 381 carats of oval, pear, marquise and round brilliant white diamonds, People magazine reported. Roberto Cavalli designed her mermaid-style strapless gown.
The 29-year-old Underwood described her necklace as 318 carats of gorgeousness. "It's heavy on my soul," she told People. "I’m afraid someone is going to tackle me and steal it. It’s worth more than me."
Underwood had a great night. She wowed the audience with her performance of “Blown Away” and “Two Black Cadillacs,” wearing a full ball gown on which images were projected. She also took home prestigious Grammys in the categories of Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for her hit, "Blown Away."
On the red carpet, Underwood proudly displayed her halo-style engagement ring, which was also designed by Arndt. It features a round flawless yellow diamond center stone encircled with smaller white diamonds, and accented with a diamond band. The ring is estimated at 5-plus carats and valued at approximately $150,000.
