Oscars 2017: Jaw-dropping Jewels Destined For the Red Carpet

Steve Granitz

Generally speaking, jewelry is typically the last step in the preparation process of getting dressed each day, but that all changes come Oscar Sunday. When it comes to the Academy Awards, stars–and their stylists–pull out all the stops when it comes to diamonds and beyond. Who can forget Angelina Jolie’s gorgeous emerald earring moment, or Jennifer Lawrence’s backwards necklace on the night she took home Best Actress? As we take a look at this year’s Oscar’s jewelry forecast, plenty of questions come to mind. Will there be diamonds draped down the back a la Lawrence? A headpiece moment? Even more, will Lupita Nyong’o wear a crown this year? Following suit from this year’s high jewelry trends, we hope to see a lot of emeralds and sapphires, including some major chandelier earrings, a good brooch or two, and a few big necklaces. Oh, and a cocktail ring doesn’t hurt! For more pieces we hope to see on Sunday, click through.
