HeadlinesThese Were the Most Dazzling Jewels at the 2019 Oscars Get inspired by these show-stopping looks. Published 3 months agoon February 25, 2019By Beth Bernstein Share Tweet The Oscars traditionally wrap award season with shining examples of what looks and categories of jewelry have begun to trend at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice, SAGs and Grammys. What’s clear is that each of the award shows has become about glamour and show-stopping jewels.The 91st Academy Awards drove home the message of the awards season that all classifications of jewelry are important for 2019. Although earrings continue to evolve as the strongest in diamond and gemstone jewelry, we are seeing a winning number of statement necklaces, wide bracelets and cocktail rings. And happily, the hair jewel made a comeback during the final awards show of 2019Here we take a look at the best jewel at the 91st Academy Awards in each category.But before we do, special mention needs to go to one historical jewel that hasn’t been worn since 1961. The famous Tiffany diamond, bought by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1878, a year after it was discovered in South Africa, became the jewel in the company’s proverbial crown. A “wardrobe of settings” was created for the 128.54-carat diamond by Jean Schlumberger, renowned designer for Tiffany & Co., and it was worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1961 for publicity stills for the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Prior to that, it was worn once by Mrs. Sheldon Whitehouse for a Tiffany Ball in 1957. Until its appearance on Lady Gaga last night at the 2019 Oscars, set into a platinum and white diamond necklace, it was on display at the legendary store. Lady Gaga wore it with Tiffany fancy yellow and white diamond and platinum earrings that set off her black gown.Photo: INSTARImages/PGI Stills Courtesy of Tiffany &Co./PGI Advertisement It was a moment that will be remembered and written about for years to come.And now for the winning jewels in each category:EarringsGemma Chan in Bulgari High Jewelry diamond and emerald earrings that have the feeling of dangling Pagodas.

It is perfect with her Elie Saab gown and linear diamond drop earrings. We have seen many Art Deco and Deco inspired bracelets as well as modern cuffs and flexible styles, but this winding cuff is one of the most breathtaking styles of the season. And it bespeaks a bracelet look that continues to trend and will do so into holiday sales.
