Another exciting year in film has come and gone. And by exciting, I mean that Leo finally won an Oscar! The 88th Academy Awards was an event full of studded stars. It was difficult for me to choose my favorite pieces of jewelry because so many celebrities were wearing such beautiful pieces. In fact, I went over my original ten best pieces so that I could include two more. See below for my top 12 adornments, including a couple of the men!
Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road actress and presenter, wore Harry Winston’s Secret Cluster Diamond Necklace, a long 48.8 carat diamond necklace set in platinum. All of her jewelry combined was worth $3.7 million. The necklace mimics the shape of her plunging neckline and looks stunning.
Presenter Sofia Vergara had lovely Lorraine Schwartz earrings that complement her dress perfectly in both color and sparkle.
Naomi Watts arrived wearing a beautiful Bulgari diamond necklace. It pairs well with the shimmer of her dark blue dress.
Saoirse Ronan, nominated for best actress for her role in Brooklyn, rocked mismatched Chopard earrings of emerald, jadeite, diamond, and pearl. In her red carpet interview she said she was wearing emerald green for Ireland, and I bet that’s also why she went with white and green earrings.
Olivia Wilde wore a Neil Lane choker adorned with pearls. It contrasts the vertical lines of her dress and makes for a gorgeous look.
Presenter Olivia Munn wore a $1 million Forevermark Diamond Cuff Bracelet made of 12.06 carat round brilliant Exceptional Forevermark Diamonds.
Presenter Whoopi Goldberg had a stunning octopus bracelet and ring accessory. The flowing lines of the piece complemented her shoulder tattoo which was only partially covered by her dress.
Presenter Tina Fey wore a stunning Bulgari sapphire necklace to go with her violet dress.
Brie Larson, who won best actress for her performance in Room, took a Niwaka brooch and made it into a stunning hair accessory. I love how her hair is wrapped around it and looks like it’s becoming one with the brooch.
Presenter Jared Leto went with a non-traditional neck accessory in the form of a red chrysanthemum. It went perfect with his red-lined tux.
Presenter Kevin Hart pulled off his black crystal studded tuxedo very well. It’s just enough to make a statement without overpowering the tux.
C-3PO was shiny and polished by Luke Skywalker. The Oscar statue looked just him, both gleaming gold, as C-3PO frantically searched for all three droids’ seats. He complained at R2-D2 and BB-8 for misplacing their tickets.
