10 of the Best Jewelry Moments from the 2024 Oscars

Glittering, gorgeously layered diamonds, ravishing rubellites, and a single, perfect yellow sapphire were the stars of the show

The fashion on the 2024 Academy Awards red carpet told a story of vintage glamour with shimmering, formfitting sheaths or structured, architectural designs with 1950s-inspired haute couture details (think bustier silhouettes, dramatic peplums, and exaggerated portrait necklines). With just a few minimalist exceptions, the jewelry accompanying these looks tended to be bold, extravagant, and thoughtfully considered, whether it was a selection of gems that perfectly complemented the color of the garment (cherry blossom-pink tourmalines with embroidered rose silk, sapphires with midnight blue velvet, emeralds with green leather) or crisp, clean-lined bijoux to contrast flounces and frills.

Statement necklaces were the evening’s must-have to the point that naked necklines stood out as missed opportunities. And if you were a man and you weren’t wearing a jeweled brooch you were doing it all wrong. Below, Galerie highlights the best jewelry moments of the night.

1. Emma Stone Wearing Louis Vuitton High Jewelry

The Best Actress award-winner for her role in Poor Things contrasted the soft, delicate hue of her mint green Louis Vuitton gown with a bold diamond choker set with a vibrant yellow, 30.47-carat octagonal step-cut Sri Lankan sapphire from the maison’s jewelry atelier. Our “golden girl” finished her look with diamond stud earrings and rings.

2. Emily Blunt Wearing Tiffany & Co.

It could only be platinum and piles of Tiffany & Co. diamonds for Blunt’s white-beaded Schiaparelli column gown. One necklace was a floral garland-style choker; the other was a draping style fashioned with three tiers of graduated cushion cut diamonds totaling 60 carats. Diamond studs and a 10 carat pear shape diamond ring tied the look together (as did her white tux-clad date, husband John Krasinksi).

Quiet luxury? Not tonight, and not if Charlize Theron had anything to say about it. The veteran red carpet goddess accented her Dior gown with a total of ten resplendent diamond pieces by French maison Boucheron, starting with a Quatre Radiant Edition suite of earrings, choker, necklace, and bracelet; plus the Vendôme Liseré bangle and ring, three Quatre Double White Edition rings, and a Quatre Double White Edition ear clip.

4. Sandra Hüller Wearing Cartier

Nominated for Best Actress for her role in the French film Anatomy of a Fall, Hüller stepped out in a black velvet Schiaparelli gown with a dramatic neckline that extended, trapeze-like, well past her shoulders. The bust was accented with a sliver keyhole brooch (the label tends to prefer gold embellishments) perhaps to better complement the only jewel suitable for such a memorable look: The Reflection de Cartier necklace set with 392 diamonds.

5. America Ferrera Wearing Pomellato

In a shimmering Barbie-pink chainmail gown by Versace, the Best Supporting Actress nominee wore jewels by Pomellato: The Ode to Milan Castello necklace, with its chunky, diamond-encrusted gold links set with five reverse-set rubellites, and a cocktail ring flashing a 19 carat richly, saturated rhodolite garnet.

Most post-Oscars conversations center the Best Actress nominee’s gown, a custom Gucci creation designed in collaboration with Indigenous artist Joe Big Mountain (Ironhorse Quillwork). Midnight blue velvet provided a backdrop for floral quillwork embellishments—and jewelry by Bulgari. Earrings that echoed the embroidery, a sapphire ring, and a diamond bracelet complemented the showstopper: A high jewelry necklace that draws inspiration from the colorful mosaics of the Roman Baths of Caracalla. Hanging from an amethyst and diamond chain, its fan-shaped centerpiece is detailed with sapphire, turquoise, tanzanites, amethysts and pavé-set diamonds.

7. William Belleau Wearing Beaded Necklace and Diamond Brooch

A perfectly cut dark blue suit anchored the Killers of the Flower Moon actor’s turquoise bolo tie and elevated it to a statement jewel that was equal parts cultural, artistic and chic. He also wore a beaded necklace, a diamond brooch fastened to his jacket lapel, and meticulously crisscrossed robin’s egg blue bands in his braids. Flawless.

Two days before the Oscars, Erivo received an award for her jewelry style at the Gem Awards (the jewelry industry’s “Oscars” event) in New York. “The jewels I wear should be part of the whole sentence, not just the full stop,” she said in her acceptance speech. She applied this philosophy to her Oscars jewelry choices in collaboration with stylist Jason Bolden. Channeling Elphaba, the role she will play in the forthcoming movie version of Wicked, she paired her dark green leather Louis Vuitton gown with pearl drop earrings detailed with tsavorites and diamonds, a platinum bracelet set with emeralds and diamonds, and diamond rings, all by Roberto Coin. (And her nails were nearly as ornate as the jewels themselves!)

9. Margot Robbie Wearing Vintage Fred Leighton

Effortlessly elegant, and not a smidge of pink. The Barbie actress complemented her glistening black chainmail Versace gown with two vintage pieces from Fred Leighton: A 1980’s diamond and gold cuff by Boivin and 1940s gold and diamond bombe ring by Suzanne Belperron. Belperron began her career in 1919—and flourished as a designer—working with the female-led team at Boivin until 1932. Worn on a night to celebrate Barbie, Robbie’s jewels might be telegraphing the importance of female empowerment—and creative achievement.

10. Colman Domingo Wearing David Yurman and Omega

A Best Actor nominee for his role in Rustin, Domingo worked with the styling team Wayman + Micah to accessorize his Louis Vuitton suit with David Yurman jewels, including a Starburst pendant with yellow beryl and diamonds affixed to his bowtie. He also wore three diamond link bracelets, a handful of signet rings and bands, and a black diamond stud earring, also by Yurman. The finishing touches: An Omega timepiece and a pinky ring that belonged to civil rights leader Bayard Rustin himself.
