Diamonds Won the Oscars Red Carpet

Turn down the brightness on your screen or risk being blinded by the shine ahead.

This is it! We’ve reached the culmination of awards season. You can practically hear the cacophony of sighs of relief from the stylists and glam teams from the Hollywood hills, but not before the film industry’s most celebrated make one final—arguably the most glamorous—walk down the red carpet. And let’s just say they turned out, blinged out. From Charlize Theron’s 21-carat marquise drop necklace to Zazie Beetz draped in 120 carats of emeralds and diamonds, Oscars 2020 had so many rare gems that we dialed up Will Kahn, jewelry director at Moda Operandi and of the must-follow @willsnotebook, to give us all the carat details. Turn down the brightness on your screen or risk being blinded by the shine ahead.

“In a Bulgari diamond necklace, emerald-and-diamond choker, diamond earrings and rings. I love how she is layering the two major necklaces; it’s a modern way to wear jewelry. Doubling down on the glamour. The star is really the 5.48-carat oval emerald in the center of the choker.” —Will Kahn
