Anthony DeMarco Tells Us Who Wore the BEST Jewels at the 2017 Oscars

Posted on 01 March 2017

The Oscars Red (burgundy) Carpet shined like white, hot light as nominees, presenters and fashion icons were overwhelmingly adorned in white diamonds paired with white metals. Big and bold statement necklaces were dominant. Earrings ranged from climbers to big drops, long layered pieces and a few that made a major statement in design and size.

When color did appear, it was tasteful. Colored gemstone miner, distributor and marketer, Gemfields, made a statement this year with its rubies from Mozambique. Surprisingly, there was a touch of color among the pieces worn on the red carpet by diamond jeweler Harry Winston.
