2023 Oscar Jewelry: Everything Everywhere That We Loved

It was a big night for Everything Everywhere All At Once, white dresses, and arm sleeves/elbow-length gloves.

Other than a surprisingly blah beige—sorry, champagne!—carpet, the 95th Academy Awards on March 12 at the Dolby Theatre in L.A. brought few surprises: a few boring fashion moments, a few daring fashion moments, and a few major jewelry moments.

Here’s a roundup of the best gems on the no-longer-red carpet. Spoiler: We’ve got more than one look from Rihanna.

Moussaieff brown yellow diamond earrings
Moussaieff earrings with 35.82 ct. and 35.66 ct. fancy deep orange-brown diamonds, 6.23 ct. and 6.01 ct. fancy yellow diamonds, and 0.8 ct. and 0.76 ct. Colombian emeralds in platinum
Moussaieff brown diamond rings
Moussaieff ring with 35.35 ct. fancy deep orange-brown diamond, yellow diamonds, and white diamonds in white gold; Moussaieff dress ring with 4.02 ct. dark brown diamond and white diamonds in yellow gold

The Best Original Song nominee walked the carpet—a step she often skips—in a custom chocolate brown sheer and leather Alaïa. (It’s like a totally important designer!) London-based high jeweler Moussaieff designed her earrings and rings, all featuring large brown diamonds. An edgy and unexpected choice.


Michelle Yeoh 2023 Oscars

Moussaieff diamond choker
Moussaieff necklace with 119.3 cts. t.w. diamonds in white gold
Moussaieff diamond earrings
Moussaieff earrings with 40.2 cts. t.w. diamonds in white gold
Moussaieff pear shape diamond ring
Moussaieff ring with 15.51 ct. pear-shape diamond and 2.04 ct. and 2.01 ct. pear-shape diamond shoulders in platinum

Speaking of Moussaieff…Michelle Yeoh has been wearing the house’s jewels throughout awards season while racking up wins for her starring role in Everything Everywhere All At Once. For her history-making Best Actress Oscar win—in an ethereal Dior Haute Couture gown—she wore more than 175 carats of dazzling diamonds. Also, we love a necklace as a hairband.


Danai Gurira 2023 Oscars

Messika diamond wave and toi et moi ring
Messika Diamond Wave ring and Toi & Moi pear-shape ring
Messika beloved feather bracelet
Messika high jewelry Beloved Feather bracelet

And speaking of a necklace as a hairband…Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Danai Gurira wrapped her hair in a choker too. The rings, bracelet, and showstopping earcuff—everything is by Paris-based Messika—employ pear-shape diamonds to create modern wing shapes. With her Jason Wu gown, the whole look is a little Audrey Hepburn–esque, no?


Jessica Chastain 2023 Oscars

Gucci high jewelry tsavorite diamond necklace
Gucci Lionhead high jewelry necklace with 80 cts. t.w. tsavorites and diamonds in 18k white gold

Last year’s Best Actress winner took a break from spinning on a turntable in A Doll’s House on Broadway to jet out to L.A. to present a couple of acting awards. Not surprisingly, her look was all Gucci: a custom silver crystal-and-sequin-embroidered gown; and a Lionhead high jewelry necklace with tsavorites and diamonds. Last year, spinel;, this year tsavorites…good for Chastain for choosing colored stones we don’t often see on the whatever-colored carpet.


Cara Delevingne 2023 Oscars

Bulgari serpenti necklace
Bulgari high jewelry Serpenti necklace in white gold with pear-shape brilliant-cut emeralds and 63.85 cts. t.w. pavé-set diamonds
Bulgari serpenti earrings and emerald turquoise cocktail ring
Bulgari high jewelry Serpenti earrings in yellow and white gold with 3.87 cts. t.w. marquise brilliant-cut diamonds, pear-cut emeralds, and 2.76 cts. t.w. pavé-set diamonds; Bulgari high jewelry ring in white gold with turquoise elements, 4.55 ct. oval emerald, 1.94 cts. t.w. triangular diamonds, and 1.2 cts. t.w. fancy-shape step-cut diamonds
Bulgari serpenti bracelet
Bulgari high jewelry Serpenti bracelet in white gold with 13.93 cts. t.w. pavé-set diamonds

Whether you love or hate the massive shoulder bow, there’s no denying that this sweeping ruby-red Elie Saab haute couture gown was one of the best of the night. Delevingne went high-glam with her jewelry too—big statement pieces from Bulgari. We’d expect nothing less from a Vogue cover girl.


Michael B Jordan 2023 Oscars

Tiffany watch
Tiffany Square 2-Hand 27 mm limited-edition watch in stainless steel

The man brooch parade marches on! Best Supporting Actor Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All At Once) wore a Fred Leighton diamond and black velvet pansy pin, Best Actor nominee Paul Mescal wore a Faune et Flore diamond and platinum high jewelry brooch by Cartier, Best Actor winner Brendan Fraser (The Whale) went antique with a bar brooch from Platt Boutique…and presenter Michael B. Jordan wore not one but two of the most ubiquitous (and dynamic) brooches on the market, the Schlumberger Bird on a Rock from Tiffany & Co. He also donned a Tiffany watch, diamond studs, diamond ring, and tennis bracelet (fun fact: nominee Michelle Williams was wearing the same one). Men, let’s keep the accessorizing going, please!

David Webb grill enamel diamond ring
David Webb Grill ring with black enamel and brilliant-cut diamonds in 18k gold and platinum; $23,000

Speaking of men accessorizing…you may not have caught Elvis director Baz Luhrmann in this jaw-dropping David Webb jade and enamel pendant necklace and enamel ring. We think the King would have been proud. And it coordinates so well with his wife (and fellow nominee) costume designer Catherine Martin’s gown!


Florence Pugh 2023 Oscars

Tiffany pink tourmaline earrings
Tiffany & Co. earrings in platinum with pink tourmalines and diamonds
Tiffany morganite and tourmaline Soleste rings
Tiffany Soleste ring in platinum with 6+ ct. pink tourmaline and diamonds; Tiffany Soleste ring in platinum with 8+ ct. morganite and diamonds

Does anyone take more risks on the “red” carpet these days than Florence Pugh? This punk-princess Valentino couture gown—with black shorts underneath—was definitely a love-it-or-hate-it look, but count us in the love camp. Also: pink jewels! And that insanely good Tiffany necklace!


Sandra Oh 2023 Oscars

Briony Raymond citrine Harry Winston necklace
Briony Raymond Estate 18k yellow gold Harry Winston necklace with citrine center, 77.7 cts. t.w. sapphires, and 10.62 cts. t.w. diamonds
Briony Raymond estate rings and earrings
(Clockwise from top) Briony Raymond Estate 18k yellow gold, diamond, and sapphire Van Cleef & Arpels ring, circa 1950s; Briony Raymond 18k yellow gold Sloasie earrings with 2.36 cts. t.w. diamonds; Briony Raymond 18k yellow gold and diamond Regent ring with 18 cts. t.w. Asscher- and baguette-cut diamonds

First: That is a tough color to pull off. But Oh looks terrific in the Giambattista Valli spring 2023 haute couture gown. Second: How stunning is that Harry Winston necklace from Briony Raymond Estate? It’s a statement piece the likes of which we rarely see at events like the Oscars.


Mindy Kaling 2023 Oscars

Boucheron cristaux smoky quartz earrings
Boucheron Carte Blanche high jewelry Cristaux pendant earrings with smoky quartz and baguette and round diamonds in white and pink gold
Boucheron high jewelry rings with diamonds and onyx
(Clockwise from top) Boucheron Serpent Bohème double-motif ring with diamonds in white gold; Boucheron Quatre Radiant Edition ring with round, baguette, and princess-cut diamonds in white gold; Boucheron Nature Triomphante high jewelry Graphique ring with onyx and diamonds in white gold

We’re so used to seeing the writer-actress-producer in bright colors that this custom Vera Wang design came as a bit of a shock. But Kaling looks sensational in the sheer-paneled gown. And the massive shoulder-duster earrings by Boucheron couldn’t be more on-trend. BTW: Did anyone else notice that Kaling changed into a black version of this gown for the telecast?


Austin Butler 2023 Oscars

Panthere de Cartier ring
Panthère de Cartier ring in 18k yellow gold with onyx and tsavorite garnets; Cartier Collection ring, 2004, in 18k yellow gold and stainless steel
Panthere de Cartier bracelet
Panthère de Cartier bracelet in 18k yellow gold with onyx and tsavorite garnets

Everyone’s favorite young Elvis looked sharp in a classic slim-fit double-breasted Saint Laurent tuxedo. (Was the wide lapel a subtle nod to Elvis? Square-toed boots—yea or nay? Discuss.) And though he’s been wearing silver-tone jewelry most of the awards season—Cartier, as he’s an ambassador for the brand—last night he opted to go for gold. Another classic choice.


Janelle Monae Kate Hudson 2023 Oscars

Reza earrings brooch and rings
(Clockwise from top l.) Reza Lattice earrings in white gold with round diamonds; Reza Diamants brooch in platinum with diamonds; Reza Spirale ring in white gold with diamonds; Reza Eventail ring in white gold with pear and round diamonds
Rahaminov pear shape diamond earrings
Rahaminov platinum earrings with 23.53 cts. t.w. pear-shape diamonds

Seriously, how cute are these two? Getting ready to go onstage to present, the Glass Onion: A Knives Out mystery costars looked gorgeous in gowns by Vera Wang (Monáe) and Rodarte (Hudson). And they look dazzling in their diamonds—Monáe in Reza and Hudson in Rahaminov.


Deepika Padukone 2023 Oscars

Pluie de cartier bracelet
Pluie de Cartier bracelet with diamonds in 18k white gold
Cartier high jewelry sapphire diamond necklace
Cartier Magicien high jewelry necklace with yellow sapphire and white and yellow diamonds in 18k white gold

The Indian actress was on hand to introduce the Best Original Song winner, “Naatu Naatu” from RRR. We loved how Padukone so accurately described the song (“In addition to being sung in Telegu and illustrating the film’s anti-colonialist themes, it’s also a total banger”), and we couldn’t help noticing her Cartier jewels, including two rings and a bracelet worn over her gloves—something of a trend this season. As an aside: If you haven’t seen RRR yet, you must. The whole movie is an action-packed delight.

De Beers Idalia necklace with 35.24 cts. t.w. diamonds in platinum
De Beers Assana Necklace
De Beers Assana necklace with 37.47 cts. t.w. diamonds in 18k white gold

You didn’t think Rihanna was going to stop at just one gown and one jewelry look, did you? Please! To perform her song “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Rihanna piled diamonds on diamonds on diamonds by De Beers. Is it cliché at this point to say she was shining bright like a diamond?


Ruth Carter 2023 Oscars

Ruth Carter

We’d be remiss if we didn’t give a nod to Ruth Carter—winner of Best Costume Design for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever—and her supercool statement earrings, which she credited to Julia Koerner, her “architect of 3D artistry.” As she told Variety in an interview: “They’re just like Angela Bassett’s crown in the film.… They’re kind of tribal. They’re very light, easy to wear.”
