Eye-catching, glamorous necklaces were the winning jewelry choice at this year’s Oscars.
Diamond-laden necklaces and dress necklines that framed them were the show-stealing look before, during and after the Academy Awards on Sunday.

Mad Max: Fury Road’s Charlize Theron rocked an extra-long diamond cluster necklace by Harry Winston with a deep-V dress that made the sparkly piece the center of her outfit. Sophie Turner, Martha Hunt, Mary J. Blige and Zendaya also donned diamond-heavy necklaces, both at the Oscars and its affiliated parties.

Big earrings remained an awards show staple as well, illustrated by the outstanding and oversized pair from Forevermark worn by Giuliana Rancic, as well as the graduated Tiffany & Co. diamond earrings donned by Oscar nominee Cate Blanchett.

See the 15 most exciting jewelry looks from this year’s Oscars, and the before and after-parties, below.
