Oscars this year, like all years, was a gala where the finest jewels and richest outfits made their grand appearances. While some of the fineries sported by the celebs made jaws drop, others knocked people off their feet. But, only a few could leave behind a crowd of mesmerized witnesses with breathtaking jewelry that not only cost astronomical, but are aesthetically matchless. Here are some of the finest necklaces seen at the Oscars this year. A short side note is that these statement necklaces may leave you feeling quite envious, but are still worth a look.
The Whispers of the Rain Forest
The Whispers of the Rain Forest, for that is its name, is a brilliant piece of work from the house of Tiffany & Co. Worn by Jessica Biel, this collar necklace uses some 350 gold fronds and that’s only the tail of the piece. The top collar is encrusted in diamonds lined in 5 thin rows. Together the combination and gold and diamond is worth a second look.
Karlie Kloss was seen wearing a floral choker this Oscars that literally had jaws drop. A creation of the iconic jewelry designer Nirav Modi, the piece is a wonderful creation from the imagination of its maker. Floral motif and filigree dominate the design all of which is encrusted in diamonds to give it a perfect shine and luster.
Vintage Cartier Neckpiece
Dakota Johnson’s neckpiece made headlines this year. The actress who walked the event in a shiny gold Victorian gown had paired up her attire with a spectacular gold and diamond vintage earring from the house of Cartier. The piece exhibited a highly complicated wirework with elaborate and very classic design.
Nirav Modi Again
Nirav Modi scores again, this time with a diamond neckpiece that actress Taraji P Henson was seen wearing. The actress looked gorgeous in her off-shoulder velvet black gown and with it the elaborate necklace stood out in contrast. Henson wore her hair in short waves and had very mild makeup on.
Alicia Vikander is known for her no-makeup get up in movies and events. This year was no different. The actress came to the Oscars in minimal makeup. She pulled it off perfectly well looking delicately beautiful as always. What added to the beauty is a spectacular Bulgari neckpiece designed in bell motif and ingrained with colorless diamonds.
