Scarlett Johansson really loves jewelry. You can tell she loves it because of all the piercings in her ears. You can also tell how much she loves jewelry by the delicate tattoo of a chain link bracelet with a Thor Hammer charm on her right wrist. Of course, the main way you can tell how much Scar Jo loves jewelry is by what she wears.
The Avengers actress has been making interesting jewelry choices for a long time. A couple of my favorite moments from the past happened at the Oscars. In 2015 she wore a floral Piaget earpiece. And in 2005 Johansson sported a vintage star tiara from Fred Leighton.
This year Scarlett’s love of jewelry was on display more regularly than it has ever been in the past. Of course, there was that moment in July when the public got a first look at her engagement ring from Colin Jost. The 11-carat light brown diamond set on a swoosh of ceramic by Taffin designer James de Givenchy is unlike anything any actress has ever worn on the third finger of her left hand. It is imaginative and grand and one of the greatest in Hollywood history.
The engagement ring, however, was far from the only jewelry event of the year for the actress. While she was busy promoting Avengers: Endgame and teasing Black Widow as well as doing all the press for her roles in Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit, she wore one interesting jewel after another. Every single choice the star and her stylist Molly Dickson made came from independent jewelry establishments.
For one of her last 2019 red carpet appearances, Scarlett wore a stunning pair of earrings by Taffin. (Seen in the photo above.) Neither Scarlett or James de Givenchy has publicly spoken about her engagement ring that was first identified by yours truly. Scar Jo wearing the Taffin earrings felt like a hat tip to the talented jewelry designer. To me it was a poetic ending to Scarlett’s jewelry year.
