All those white and black dresses at the Golden Globes Monday needed some zing.

It came from the jewelry, which, like the gowns, went in two directions: the safe and simple route or the extreme and bold, à la unusual gem colorations, knuckle-swallowing rings and swingy ear dazzlers.

Drew Barrymore led the simpler camp by forgoing a necklace in favor of a 50-carat Asscher-cut diamond ring supplied by Leviev — although that rock presumably was enough.

Also bare-necked were Sarah Jessica Parker and Hilary Swank, who opted for a 53-carat white and brown diamond orchid brooch by Chopard to decorate her flowing hair.

"I wanted something beautiful, but not a necklace," said Swank. "And this seemed very old Hollywood."

Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé Knowles and Sarah Paulson were just a few who gave subtlety the cold shoulder, instead jazzing up the carpet with Lorraine Schwartz's sizable gems in an array of colored stones. Lopez sported 10-carat yellow diamonds in crushed gold chandelier earrings, while Knowles' 20-carat gray and yellow diamond cocktail ring made her the epitome of a dream girl. "When you have that big ring on your right hand, it's empowering," Schwartz mused. "This girl doesn't have to wait for a man to give her a ring."
