Oscars 2016: Red Carpet Jewelry

Jewelry at the 2016 Oscars

The stars always shine on the red carpet, and the 88th annual Academy Awards were no exception! It’s hard to choose a favorite, as this award season brought an abundance of stunning designer gowns and custom jewelry. No matter your style, you can count on Hollywood to help find inspiration for your next signature piece. Here are some tips for how to get an award winning look of your own.

Sophie Turner

Sophie was absolutely stunning in her eco-friendly gown by Galvan. The desert sage color of her gown perfectly matched her eyes and tsavorite Tiffany & Co. earrings. A modern diamond necklace and ring, also by Tiffany, completed the look. Our double strand diamond riviera necklace and cushion cut green toumaline earrings will add red carpet glamour to your next evening out. Sophie Turner

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett was a vision in an ethereal Armani gown and nature inspired Tiffany and Co. jewels. Try our diamond feather earrings or rose gold star fish pendant to bring out your own natural beauty. Cate Blanchett

Tina Fey

Tina wore a purple strapless Versace gown, adorned with a bold sapphire and diamond Bulgari necklace and white gold vintage ring. Get a similar look with our custom tanzanite collar necklace and vintage Edwardian diamond ring. Tina Fey

Brie Larson & Olivia Wilde

Brie Larson may have won best actress, but she also won our hearts with her elegant ensemble. Diamond and pearl earrings by Japanese designer Niwaka were an delicate addition to her flowing royal blue Gucci gown. Olivia Wilde wowed in a pearl Edwardian choker by Neil Lane and pearl and diamond earrings. Pearls come in a range of breathtaking and unique styles and colors, far from the standard pearl strands you may be used to. You really need to see them for yourself! Brie_Larson

La La Anthony

TV personality La La Anthony was seen wearing black and white diamond jewelry by Le Vian to the Ninth Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party. Pairing black and white is a classic combination that has been gaining popularity in jewelry trends. You can get the look with our black sapphire & diamond earrings or go big with all diamonds in our black & white diamond hoops. LaLa_Anthony

Jane Wu

Actress and producer Jane Wu was flawless in a glittering black gown, accented with a beautifully interwoven Le Vian diamond ring. Similar intricate ring designs were seen on both Bar Paly and Kate Beckinsale. You can get a similar feel with our intertwined diamond ropes band or 7-row black and white diamond band. Jane_Wu

Steve Carell

Steve Carell chose a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Perpetual to complete his look. Steve can’t keep his eyes off the black dial and striking highly-polished accents, and neither will you when you get this masterpiece on your own wrist. Steve Carell

Tom McCarthy

Tom McCarthy, one of the screenwriters for Spotlight, the film that won best picture, was seen wearing a Jaeger-LeCoultre Geophysic True Second. The Geophysic’s subtle design and excellent precision ensure you’ll be wearing this timeless watch for years to come.

Brian d’Arcy James

Brian d’Arcy James, who starred in Spotlight, walked the red carpet in a Clifton 10057. The blue dial moonphase and 1950s inspired design of this Baume & Mercier perfectly complemented his classic style.
