Oscars 2024: Gold Statement Jewellery Makes a Comeback

The Oscars 2024, as expected, was a showcase of glamour on the red carpet. The accompanying jewellery to this year’s iconic Oscars looks ranged from shaped diamonds with strong meanings, to gold statement pieces and details, and iconic pink jewels. 

Nilesh Rakholia, jewellery expert and founder at Abelini shares his thoughts on the biggest jewellery moments at this year’s ceremony…

1. Shaped diamonds with strong meanings

“Vanessa Hudgens stunned on the Oscars red carpet, where she announced her pregnancy. The star adorned a 18k white-gold necklace, featuring a 10.06 carat pear-shaped diamond. She added a pair of 18k white gold and diamond rings, finishing the look exquisitely.

“Due to its uniqueness in shape, a pear-shaped cut is often associated with individuality and strong-mindedness. Often the tear-drop aspect is also associated with tears of joy, the perfect choice for a pregnancy announcement to the public.”

2. Layer it up

 “Stars such as Florence Pugh and Emily Blunt were styled with the accompaniment of layered necklaces. This particular style has its roots in the display of wealth and status and the art of layering is bold and unapologetic, drawing attention to the face of whoever is wearing the pieces.”

3. Gold statements are making a comeback

“Statement pieces appear to be making a comeback. Barbie star Margot Robbie was spotted keeping her style simple – wearing one statement piece of jewellery, a chunky gold and diamond bangle.

“Diamond and platinum necklaces are common occurrences on the red carpet, so it’s always interesting when someone decides to go against the grain and opts for gold instead. Gold necklaces evoke an element of glamour, in tune with 1940s Hollywood. Stars like America Ferrara wore a gold and pink stone necklace, paired with a pink dress, really making the statement jewellery pop.”

4. Pink jewels

“Ariana Grande took total inspiration from her Wicked character at the Oscars, wearing a pink gown the look was completed with a blonde ponytail and pink jewels.

“Pink diamonds are usually more expensive and rarer diamonds, with the pink often symbolising beauty and fun – the perfect choice for a night on the red carpet.”
