Tracee Ellis Ross was quite the stunner at the 74th Annual Golden Globes, but it was not due to her dazzling crystal-embellished Zuhair Murad strapless dress. The Blackish star has brightened up the red carpet thanks to her fistful of diamonds. She managed to delightfully decorate each and every single finger on her hand. Tracee wore an estimate of eight pieces in total, with the ring on her ring finger and middle finger being one piece, connected by a chain. She wore matching diamond rings as her base and completed her look with a halo-encrusted diamond and sculptural diamond pieces.
