5 Oscar Jewelry Looks We’re Still Thinking About

As the Academy Awards quickly approach we can’t help but reminisce about the memorable jewelry worn by red carpet beauties over the last few years. We’ve drooled over plenty of Oscar jewelry – but we narrowed it down to five favorites for the sake of this post.

Amy Adams dazzled in an elegant red gown paired with a bold multi-gemstone necklace. This eye-catching piece featured 39 carats of diamonds, and 630 carats of sapphires, emeralds and rubies. Oh my!

Nicole Kidman may be beautiful but she tends to fade in the background with her typical black or pale colored gowns. ¬†At the 2008 Oscars she took her standard black attire and added a jaw-dropping 1,399-carat diamond necklace to spice up her look. One thousand three hundred ninety-nine Carats!! Don’t you just love the lives of the rich and famous?

Sandra Bullock won the Best Actress award at the Oscars last year and wins the Best Earrings Award from Ice.com. The combination of her gown, vibrant red lips and hair positioning made her earring stand out in the most elegant way. So simple, so perfect.

Angelina Jolie wore magnificent 115 carat emerald drop earring and matching 65 carat ring at the 2009 Oscars. This is my personal favorite Oscar jewelry memory. Hoping Angelina will top this look at the 2011 awards ceremony on Feb. 27th.

I may not have been around to watch the 1970’s Oscars but after doing some research I couldn’t help but admire Elizabeth Taylor’s 69 carat pear-shaped diamond necklace. These days most actresses borrow their jewels from designers for the night but Mrs. Taylor pulled this stunner out of her personal jewelry box.

Oscar nominations are out! Who Will Shine on the Red Carpet?

Early this morning, actors and filmmakers were anxiously awaiting the announcement of the Academy Award nominations. Although we are excited about hearing the nominations, we can’t help but get antsy about what the stars will wear! Isn’t that why everyone loves to watch the Oscars anyway?

We are most excited about Natalie Portman‘s nomination for Best Actress in Black Swan. We predict she will have a custom-made simplistic maternity dress, paired with extravagant jewels to spice up her look since she’s been shying away from giving too much attention to her baby bump.

Other female nominees we’re excited to see on the red carpet are Amy Adams and we’re hoping Michelle Williams wins us over at the Oscars unlike her child-like floral ensemble at the Golden Globes. Also, Helena Bonham Carter is always entertaining to watch. We wouldn’t necessarily wear any of her clothing choices but appreciate her originality.

Who are you most excited to see on the Oscar red carpet next month at the Oscars? What pieces of jewelry from Ice.com would you put on one of the actresses on the red carpet? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook.
