The Academy Awards ceremony is the ultimate celebration of cinema excellence and art and a night of true glamour. At the 2016 Oscars, the elegant diamond and white precious metals ruled the red carpet.
The big winners of the 88th Academy Awards were “Spotlight” and Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as “Mad Max: Fury Road,” winner of six Oscars in technical categories, and Alejandro González Iñárritu, who won Best Director for the second year in a row.
In a night of surprises, and under the controversy of the lack of diversity among the nominees, the star’s stunning gowns were styled with statement earrings, dramatic necklaces, and stand-out rings, ranging from timelessly traditional to vintage and contemporary shapes.
The stark brilliance of the diamond prevailed, followed by the delicate pearls. Stunning emerald and sapphire pieces could also be seen. The metal of choice was predominantly platinum.
