The 95th Academy Awards rolled out its champagne carpet—a color Oscar’s organizer chose for its “mellowness”—last night in Hollywood.
And it turns out that champagne, like a true red, goes perfectly with diamonds. And of course there was lots of sparkle to coo over on the carpet—and on stage, as a few celebs, including Margot Robbie in these show-stopping Lorraine Schwartz earrings, skipped the arrivals altogether.
Here are some of my favorite jewelry moments from the 2023 Oscars.
Jenny Slate in Gismondi 1754
Actress and author Jenny Slate wore a one-of-a-kind Gismondi 1754 collar necklace called Abbraccio (which means “the embrace”) that took over nine months and 300 hours for the workshop to create. The piece features over 52 cts. t.w. of round white diamonds: 127 pear diamonds and 333 round diamonds; and a roughly 22 ct. pear-shaped Zambian emerald, all in 18k white gold. She also wore assorted Gismondi 1754 rings.
Ke Huy Quan in Fred Leighton
Ke Huy Quan, the Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actor (Everything, Everywhere, All At Once) wore a Fred Leighton c.1900 platinum, diamond, and black velvet pansy brooch and a Fred Leighton 2.50 ct. lozenge-shape diamond platinum lapel pin. A winning look!
Danai Gurira in Messika
Danai Gurira of Wakanda Forever wore diamond earrings, rings, and a bracelet from French jeweler Messika.
Rihanna in Verdura
Rihanna wore Verdura’s dreamy emerald and diamond “Stardust” cluster earclips (Verdura’s Stardust design made its debut in a 1944 bracelet commissioned by American composer Cole Porter for his wife, Linda).
