Classic diamond looks dominated the red carpet at the Oscars. Statement earrings, including chandeliers overshadowed the classic riviere necklaces. Luxurious but simple, dramatic but modern, stiletto diamond earrings were the top Oscar jewelry trend of the night. Some of my favorites were long slim drops with a large gem, which have the same long and lean vibe. Actresses of all ages looked modern, strong and chic in this flattering earring style that’s ripe for a revival.
Eiza Gonzales in Chopard
The star of Baby Driver is stunning in bright yellow and spectacular long diamond drops by Chopard. The perfect sleek sparkle to match the modern lines of her dress, don’t you think?
Laura Dern in Atelier Swarovski
Clean and geometric, the emerald cut drops on these earrings add an edge to Laura’s graceful white Calvin Klein gown. This is probably the best lab-grown diamond jewelry we’ve seen at the Oscars so far.
Jennifer Garner in Piaget
These long earrings have a pattern of small diamonds and a pear drop at the end: just enough detail to be interesting close up while the simple silhouette keeps things streamlined at a distance.
Jennifer Lawrence in Nikawa Jewelry
These are the most streamlined of the night’s stilettos a classic line of diamonds. What makes them cool is all the other hoops and studs Jennifer has layered with them. This feels fresh, young and modern.
Jane Fonda in Chopard
The sleek silhouette of Jane’s structured gown was the perfect match for these long sleek diamond earrings by Chopard that end in major pear-shaped diamond drops.
Saoirse Ronan in Cartier
The sophisticated diamond drops by Cartier that Satires Ronan wore are especially beautiful because they use opposing pairs of pear-shaped diamonds to add grace and a slight vintage vibe to a sleek modern silhouette.
