69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Press Room

Looking back at this year’s best red carpet jewelry moments, we saw quite the range from personal touches and layered treasures to, of course, big brand name borrows. Whatever the case, this year’s red carpet baubles were definitely bright and shiny, and decidedly statement making. We saw Zoë Kravitz take her gig as the new face of Tiffany and Co. seriously by wearing strands of diamonds to the Emmys, and Rihanna launch her own Rihanna Loves Chopard collection on the red carpet (this collection’s prices start at just over [$1,000] (https://www.chopard.com/us/rihanna-loves-chopard-ring-pre-sale-at829901-5010). At the Met Gala this year, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen chose a more bohemian goddess choice of layered necklaces, and earrings while Jessica Biel brought it to the ultra-sleek and chic shimmer in Tiffany’s at the Oscars. Stella Maxwell wore a completely pearl-covered dress to the Met while Beyoncé wore hundreds of carats to the Grammy’s before accepting her almost-as-shiny Grammy statuettes for Lemonade. Ultimately though the real statement came not in what the jewels were but rather how each star wore them, whether it be ribbons, bangles, pearls, or, in Madonna’s case, grillz.

Forever treasured, these two have a jewelry collection for the books. The layered vintage jewelry that Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen wore to this year’s Met: ‘Rei Kawakubo/Commes Des Garcons: Art of the In-Between’ Costume Institute Gala was real, collected and not borrowed.

The most important part of this Emmy Awards outfit was Zoe Kravitz’s clean diamond choice—her rainbow dress was tied together by the simplicity of a double strand diamond necklace, and studs—all serious Tiffany & Co. stones to say the least.

Rihanna doesn’t mess around with red carpet jewels. Especially at the Cannes Film Festival. These Chopard layers of emerald and diamond earrings, rings and cuffs added a deliberate pinch of color to her all white Dior gown.

Not only was the dress or the girl that made this moment electric, it was also how she paired dark velvet Victorian with light, and airy florals. The Cartier choker sealed the deal on Poppy Delevigne’s outfit at this year’s British Fashion Awards.


Ruth Negga was winning again at the Oscars this year in rubies by Gemfields X Irene Neuwirth headband and earrings. This take on a modern headpiece was a bold choice for monochrome and she got it so right.


We don’t think we can forget the moment when Madonna wore grills, to the Met this year along with layers upon layers of chains.


At this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Diane Kruger donned a thin black choker paired with her Chopard diamond necklace. It was a modern day fairy tale moment.


Remember when Jessica Biel stole the show with this Tiffany necklace at the Oscars this year? It’s hard to forget, considereding she perfectly envisioned a walking Oscar beauty.

Taylor Hill

Let us never forget vintage; At this year’s Met Gala: ‘Rei Kawakubo/Commes Des Garcons: Art of the In-Between’ Costume Institute Gala, Lauren Santo Domingo paired layers upon layers of vintage pieces from Nina Runsdorf and Fred Leighton.


Stella Maxwell decided to literally wear pearls at this year’s Met Gala: ‘Rei Kawakubo/Commes Des Garcons: Art of the In-Between’ Costume Institute Gala. We have never seen so many pearls look so good.

A powerful delivery this year from Beyoncé, not only with her Grammy’s performance, speech or dress, but also her jewels. Her Over the top Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace hit just so with her Peter Dundas red sequin gown.


Bright, young and cheerful these diamonds are so playful on Alicia Vikander, who cannot do wrong on the red carpet. This year in Bulgari at the Oscar’s.
