The Academy Awards are the Super Bowl of red carpet looks, and the 2022 Oscars delivered in a major way when it came to the natural diamond jewelry on display. From red carpet legends like Nicole Kidman to stars like Ariana DeBose making their Oscars debut, these are the stars and diamond jewelry looks that made the 94th Academy Awards a night to remember.
The Best Diamond Jewellery Looks From the 2022 Oscars Red Carpet

Leave it to Zendaya to school us on how to layer diamond bracelets like a pro! The star stacked Bulgari’s diamond Serpenti Viper bracelets down her arms and topped the look with a matching necklace to complement her Valentino ensemble.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross went for a romantic-glam look with slicked back hair, red lips, and a strapless red Carolina Herrera ballgown that drew all the attention to her NIWAKA diamond and pearl choker.
“We paired the most extraordinary DeBeers jewellery pieces with Lupita’s gold fringe Prada gown. I loved how the fringe ring from the Alchemist of Light collection could not be more perfect because it mimicked the detailing of the dress,” Lupita Nyong’o’s stylist Micaela Erlanger told Only Natural Diamonds in an exclusive statement about the look.
Erlanger added “the earrings and other statement rings from the Reflections of Nature collection looked like the light has been reflected and refracted. You don’t ever want your jewellery to compete, rather you want them to enhance each other. These pieces effortlessly did just that.”
Timothée Chalamet may be the most in-demand young movie star working today, but his Oscar look was the definition of rock-star glam. The actor went shirtless to the ceremony, rocking an open sequined and lace black Louis Vuitton blazer paired with a Cartier necklace and rings.
