Best jewellery at the Oscars 2023

It was a busy night at the 95th Annual Academy Awards for dazzling diamonds. With stars adorned in Moussaieff, Bulgari, Tiffany and Cartier, amongst others, we check out all the jewellery action from the champagne coloured carpet at the Oscars 2023

By Kim Parker

It was an historic night at the Oscars 2023. The multiverse-hopping sci-fi film Everything Everywhere All At Once broke records, scooping seven awards including best film, best director and best actress for Michelle Yeoh – the first Asian actress to garner the prize.

Lady Gaga and Rihanna performed their Oscar-nominated songs from Top Gun Maverick and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (though both were pipped to the actual award by Naatu Naatu from the hit Telugu-language film, RRR). And both Ke Huy Yuan and Brendan celebrated stellar career comebacks when they won the gong for Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor, respectively. As with previous awards ceremonies this season, celebrities did it all in a myriad of shimmering diamond jewels, which lit up this year’s surprisingly pale, champagne-coloured ‘red’ carpet.

Here, we countdown some of our favourite looks of the night.
