OSCAR WINNING JEWELLERY 2023
While not without it's critics, the Oscars remain the ultimate annual celebration of Hollywood glamour
But it's not just fantastic couture dresses on show
Fabulous jewellery also grabs the limelight
Of course not all the jewellery on display would be suitable for anything other than the most glamorous of occasions.
Nor is most of it actually owned by the fortunate celebrities who get to wear it, even though many could afford to.
In fact, it is customary for some of the world's most iconic jewellery houses to lend selected, rarely seen creations to the biggest stars exclusively for this very high profile event.
The marketing value presumably being almost as priceless as the jewellery itself!
Nevertheless, at this year's Oscars ceremony, the attending glitterati wore literally millions of pounds worth of sensational high jewellery to really make an impression.
Statement pieces from the likes of Cartier, Bulgari and Gucci adorned the A Listers in style.
Combinations of flawless diamonds, particularly in chokers and necklaces, seemed to be the order of the day.
And sublime green emeralds, set with colourless fiery gemstones in lavish necklaces, earrings and wrist wear, also made more than mere cameo appearances.
As did an epic, pear shaped yellow sapphire and diamond necklace, worn rather gracefully by Deepika Padukone.
But for us, this years award just had to go to...
