Unique from any other award show, the Oscars has a stunning sense of history. It celebrated its 90th anniversary this year. Throughout the night it was a blend of the new stars and talents that made up the diverse array of Best Picture nominees and Hollywood legends that appeared to present various awards.
The same type of something classic and something new was reflected in the jewelry of the evening. Many stars chose glamorous styles we have come to expect. There were lots of diamond pendant and stiletto earrings. There were also a few more surprising styles such as geometric gold earrings and one seriously cool diamond choker. See everything below.
Presenter Gal Gadot debuted the first pieces from the 2018 Tiffany Blue Book Collection, including an exquisite necklace with a 27-carat aquamarine drop and over 1000 diamonds at the Oscars. “While inspired by Tiffany & Co.’s extraordinary Art Deco jewelry from the 1930s, the necklace’s icy aquamarines, classic lines and graphic shapes juxtaposed with platinum and diamonds make it feel irreverent and unexpectedly modern,” said Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer, Tiffany & Co. “It took nearly a year to procure and cut the ethically sourced gemstones, reflecting the exacting standards and craftsmanship of our artisans.”
