The Oscars are the biggest display of jewelry on the planet. This year there were lots of classic diamond necklaces. Many were styled in a cool new way on top of a blouse (Gal Gadot) or under the hooded dress à la Grace Jones (Janelle Monáe). There were also lots of earrings. Many were smaller in scale than we have seen in the recent past. In other words they were understated by Oscar standards. A couple of independent design talents shone (Anita Ko and Nikos Koulis). Fine jewels from fashion labels made an appearance (Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton). And the big names in jewelry were present and accounted for. See the best and brightest jewels below.
Scarlett Johansson wore Forevermark x Anita Ko earrings. The $2.5-million Exceptional Pear Diamond Drop Earrings are set with 26.65-carats of diamonds in white gold.
