2014 Oscars – Our Jewelry Favorites

Mar 3, 2014

Last night’s 86th Academy Awards was very eventful night full of epic selfies, pizza, Jennifer Lawrence falling down, Jared Leto being the best son, ever – and of course Hollywood’s most talented actors dressed their best. The ladies of Hollywood rocked some seriously gorgeous dresses, but let’s not forget the jewelry that helps to pull the ensemble together for these best dressed celebs.

Here are our top five picks for best jewelry at the 2014 Oscars!

5. Angelina Jolie

The actress paired her Elie Saab Haute Couture gown with earrings weighing in at over 42 carats. Her jewelry designer, Robert Procop worked with Angelina to find the perfect finishing touches for her red carpet moment, and wound up with the “largest, perfectly cut, flawless round diamonds” they could find.

4. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence wore a Neil Lane necklace weighing in at 100 carats (and with a price tag of $2 million). Oh, and let’s not forget her 10-carat diamond studs and diamond-and-platinum ring.

3. Anna Kendrick

The 28 year old actress wowed in a stunning black gown accented by Piaget jewelry.

2. Sandra Bullock

The Gravity actress was tastefully decked out in Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, including a huge brooch-like earring on her left side and a stunning bracelet.

1. Naomi Watts

The award presenter paired her winter-white Calvin Klein gown with a spiderweb-like diamond Bulgari necklace.
