The Most Gorgeous Oscar Jewelry

Celeste Perron

The red carpet at the Academy Awards is always a showcase of stunning style, and the 2015 Oscars were no exception. What did set this year’s Oscar style apart was the extra-glamorous and attention-grabbling jewelry on display. Here are four of the key themes in Oscar jewelry this year:

Statement Necklaces

Big, bold necklaces were one of the gorgeous trends on the red carpet, and our favorite was Margot Robbie’s stunning vintage-style necklace, which featured a tassel of sapphires, as well as emeralds and diamonds set in yellow gold around a fully functioning zipper. The design, called the “Zip Antique Columbine,” was originally created for the Duchess of Windsor. Discover distinctive new necklaces such as the Opera Diamond Pendant, or browse our Vintage Jewelry collection for more statement styles.

 

Diamond Cluster Earrings

Stars who didn’t adorn their collarbones with major necklaces instead opted for show-stopping earrings. While there were chandelier and drop designs on display, some of the most trend-setting stars wore diamond cluster earrings. Reese Witherspoon, Marion Cotillard, Julianne Moore, and Anna Kendrick all dazzled in brilliant cluster designs.

Timeless Vintage Styles

Margot Robbie was far from the only star wearing a vintage or vintage-inspired design. Viola Davis was radiant in a classically elegant estate necklace of pearls and diamonds, and Naomi Watts wore a diamond bracelet inspired by the Duchess of Windsor as well as Art Deco-style drop earrings featuring oval sapphires. Browse glamorous designs from eras past, such as the Saorise Pendant, in our collection of Vintage Jewelry.

 

Unique Colored Gemstones

Diamonds will likely always be the unofficial gemstone of the Oscars, but this year unique colored jewels gave diamonds a run for the title. Kerry Washington shimmered in pink sapphire drop earrings, Scarlett Johansson wore an edgy ear cuff featuring pear-shaped emeralds and aquamarines, and Gwyneth Paltrow donned earrings and a ring featuring vibrant rubies.
