See what makes the A-lister shine even brighter.By Editorial Staff |
About this series: Welcome to Diamond Doppelgänger—where we chronicle the jewelry looks of your favorite stars and influencers. In each installment, we’ll identify trend-defying style moments from Hollywood’s most fashionable and track down the accessory details so you can shop ‘em yourself. Today we’re seeking inspiration from the incomparable Reese Witherspoon.
With over 25 years of red carpet experience throughout her career, Reese Witherspoon has had plenty of practice in mastering the art of special occasion dressing. Her style may have evolved over the years (as we can’t see Witherspoon showing up donning cowboy boots and ‘90s daisies as she did for her very first red carpet moment back in 1991), but the star power and luminous energy she brings to each look has endured throughout the decades, making her an obvious favorite to glean a little style inspiration from.
Whittling down years of iconic public appearances to a few standout moments is no easy feat, but for the purpose of getting into all of the juicy diamond details, we’ll zero in on three recent looks that accentuate her jewelry choices.
First, let’s pull a page from Witherspoon’s awards season style by starting with her appearance at the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California back in 2015. The best actress nominee showed up in a strapless, shimmering Calvin Klein dress. But the real star of the night was the $1.5 million dollars she wore in diamonds: Tiffany & Co., to be exact. The look included a $600,000 platinum pair of diamond earrings, a 6.75 carat diamond platinum ring for $695,000, and a whopper of a diamond bracelet in 18K gold for $200,000. (The love for Tiffany & Co. must run in the family, as Witherspoon’s daughter, Ava Phillippe, landed a paid partnership with the diamond brand back in 2018.) A more ornate version of the solitaire earrings (for considerably less) can be found in these Tiffany Enchant Fleur Earrings. If you’re open to shopping outside of Tiffany & Co., these Bloomingdales’ diamond solitaire leverback earrings in 14K white gold are a great alternative—and a truer match aesthetically. While the exact $200k bracelet will be hard to come by, this Tiffany Five-row Bangle with a total carat weight of 4.96 offers plenty of sparkle.
The following year, at the 88th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California, Witherspoon followed the formula she stunned with at the Golden Globes: Strapless gown, dramatic side part, and Tiffany & Co. adornments. The million-dollar grouping of Tiffany & Co. baubles included an emerald-cut 7.49 carat tsavorite ring with diamond accents, cluster diamond earrings, and three platinum-and-diamond bracelets. Melissa Kaye’s Maya Earring, which features 5.45 carats of white diamonds, is a striking, edgier version of the earrings Witherspoon opted for. A similarly stunning ring from Tiffany is its Green Tourmaline and Diamond Ring. The tourmaline sits in platinum and is a cushion-cut beauty with a carat weight of 7.24. Round diamonds surround it totaling .64 ct. To nail her take on layered tennis bracelets, try Tiffany’s dazzling clasp of marquise diamonds, available here. To enhance your arm party, the Vine Tennis Bracelet is a close match to another studded piece on Witherspoon’s wrist that evening.
The final look of red carpet magic we’re taking jewelry cues from is Reese Witherspoon’s appearance at the 2017 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Collection Gala in New York City.
In news that should be shocking to no one, Witherspoon accessorized her Brandon Maxwell strapless dress with—you guessed it—Tiffany & Co. diamond jewelry. In fact, Witherspoon divulged her long history with the iconic jeweler at the event, stating that her first Tiffany piece was the silver heart on a chain that Elle Woods wears in Legally Blonde.The pear-shaped drop earrings steal plenty of attention, and you can shop the Tiffany Tanzanite counterpart here. A similar bet for the emerald statement ring is this Tiffany Soleste piece that’s a cool $11,800. Lastly, you can mirror her stacked diamond ring with this five-row .9 carat ring.
And with that, consider Reese Witherspoon’s best jewelry moments unlocked. Forever dripping in Tiffany & Co. and forever appearing perfect and timeless.
