The bigger, the better was the memo as far as jewels were concerned.

The Oscars have been the backdrop to some magnificent jewelry moments over the years—and the 2023 ceremony was not short of wow-factor. The stars were out to impress on the jewelry front, with dozens of guests opting for statement-making pieces on the red carpet (including the men—see Michael B. Jordan’s Tiffany & Co. brooches and Lenny Kravitz’s layered chains for just two examples).

All eyes were on Deepika Padukone’s mesmerizing Cartier pendant, a contender for biggest stone of the night, while Angela Bassett, Sandra Oh and Florence Pugh all accessorized with chunky, sculptural necklaces. Chokers were a common theme, too, as seen on Halle Bailey (De Beers), Cara Delevingne (Bulgari) and Janelle Monáe (Reza).

Scroll on to see the statement jewellery that threatened to upstage the fashion on Oscar night.
