Red Carpet Jewelry Highlights at the Oscars
At the 92nd Academy Awards, stars walked the red carpet adorned in vintage and new jewelry, with colorless diamonds and precious stones in hues of the rainbow. Zazie Beetz wore over 80 carats of stunning emerald and diamond collar-style necklaces and earrings by Bulgari. She layered a white gold High Jewelry Divas’ Dream necklace with three 3.5-carat round cut diamonds, round brilliant cut diamonds and approximately 75 carats of pavé set diamonds atop another white gold High Jewelry necklace with an oval emerald measuring at over 5 carats, 84 2-carat buff top emeralds and 12 carats of pavé-set diamonds.
Her earrings were matching white gold Bulgari High Jewelry earrings crafted with 2.49-carat cushion emeralds, 24 buff top emeralds, round diamonds and pavé-set diamonds. With such dramatic pieces, the understated Thom Browne, strapless dress served as the perfect foil.
To go with her bright yellow Dolce & Gabbana one-shoulder gown, Mindi Kaling also chose a collar style necklace with 78.46-carats of marquise-cut diamonds and 46.33-carats of round-shaped diamonds set in 18k white gold and earrings featuring 4.23-carats of pear-shaped diamonds and .31-carats of diamonds set in 18k white gold both from Chopard’s “Haute Joaillerie Collection,” and a ring featuring a 1.23-carat round brilliant-cut diamond and 5.12-carats of round-shaped diamonds set in 18k white gold from the brand’s “Magical Setting Collection.”
Kaitlyn Dever and Timothee Chalamet’s fine jewelry both featured bright, eye-catching rubies. Platinum and 18k yellow gold 11.19-carat Harry Winston Secret Cluster diamond earrings with ruby drops and a platinum 26.28-carat diamond Lariat necklace matched Dever’s sustainable Louis Vuitton gown.
Chalamet dressed up his Prada outfit with a 1955 Cartier Tradition brooch set in 18k white gold and platinum. The brooch, a piece from Cartier’s Heritage collection, features diamonds and Burmese rubies.
Natalie Portman matched her Dior Haute Couture ensemble with Clash de Cartier diamond earrings set in 18k rose gold and a Cartier High Jewelry 18k yellow gold ring with a yellow diamond, black lacquer and white diamonds.
It’s uncommon to see a celebrity wear jewelry and gowns from the same brand, but that’s exactly what Best Supporting Actress noms Florence Pugh and Margot Robbie did. Pugh wore a bold turquoise Louis Vuitton gown and an 18k white gold diamond wrap choker necklace with a 21-carat pear-shaped imperial topaz from Louis Vuitton’s High Jewelry “Riders of the Knight” collection.
Robbie accented her Chanel black strapless dress with what was the most unusually placed jewelry of the evening – a large Chanel Fine Jewelry pearl and lapis brooch with a pearl tassel perched in the valley of the sweetheart neckline. A yellow gold, diamond and pearl Chanel ring completed the look.
