Iconic Jewellery Worn By Celebrities At Major Events

Iconic Jewellery Worn By Celebrities At Major Events – Jewellery companies know that if celebs wear their products, they’ve already won half their marketing battle. Celebrity endorsements can drive massive demand for a brand’s earrings, necklaces, anklets, brooches, and other items, giving them a leg up on the competition.

This effect is particularly pronounced when their jewellery appears on the most popular celebrities. Combined with stunning outfits, it can drive sales through the roof.

In some cases, it is the magnificent artistry that elevates jewellery items to high status (such as when Zendaya wore Bulgari’s Serpenti necklaces). In other cases, it is the sheer size of the rock that matters.

This post explores the most daring, bold, adventurous and exotic jewellery worn by celebrities at major events in the recent past. It looks at the winners, the losers, and everything in between.

Lady Gaga Wears Tiffany & Co.’s Schlumberger Necklace To The 91st Annual Academy Awards

The world’s collective jaws dropped when Lady Gaga donned Tiffany’s Schlumberger necklace at the 2019 Oscars Awards. The last time a star wore the piece was over sixty years ago when Audrey Hepburn used it for a Breakfast at Tiffany’s publicity shoot.

The star of the Schlumberger necklace is the gigantic (and priceless) 128.54-carat diamond with 84 radiant facets. Explorers discovered the rock over 140 years ago, and it remains one of the most impressive stones ever used in jewellery.

Rihanna Wears Jewellery Pieces From High-End Fashion Retailer Chopard At The Clara Lionel Foundation Diamond Ball

Pop princess Rihanna also turned heads when she arrived at the Clara Lionel Foundation Diamond Ball in 2014 wearing some of designer Chopard’s most iconic pieces. The Barbadian singer and Hollywood star donned the jeweller’s epic Red Carpet collection, featuring a 123.24-carat rubellite stock necklace, offset with 65.24 carats of platinum-set diamonds, a bracelet and earrings.

Chopard wanted to create pieces with “high-voltage” appeal and believed Rihanna was the perfect star to showcase them. Rubies, rose gold, Tanzanite, and rubellites complete the look, giving the wearer a sparkling “vie en rose”-style appearance.

Zendaya Wears Bulgari-designed Jewellery At The Venice Film Festival

In 2023, actor Zendaya turned heads at the Venice Film Festival with her jewellery choices, drawing attention away from the larger event just over the border in Cannes. The once-teen idol looked royal, wearing some of Bulgari’s most famous creations.

Zendaya’s statement piece was the Bulgari Serpenti necklace, a diamond-encrusted piece that coils into a snake-like pendant. Bulgari does not disclose the item’s price, but it is one in a long list of similar jewellery worn by the star at other events.

Hailee Steinfeld Wears Tiffany & Co. at the 2021 Met Gala

Hailee Steinfeld also made waves at the 2021 Met Gala when she wore a custom outfit, including jewellery from Tiffany and Co. The star of Hawkeye and pop artist completely change her look for the event, ditching her usual brunette flowing locks for a feather blond bob

Timothée Chalamet Wears Cartier Necklace With Shirtless Suit At The 2022 Oscars

Dune star Timothée Chalamet decided to disrupt expectations at the 2022 Oscars Film Awards by ditching his usual shirt and wearing a sparkly necklace instead. The sterling silver jewellery complemented his sequin black blazer, black tapered trousers and black boots.

According to gossip, Chalamet has a penchant for fashion and regularly dons daring outfits to grab attention. He even hints at this passion in his films, including during his performance in the 2019 adaptation of Little Women.

Chalamet’s fashion designer and consultant, Jacqueline Durran, said he is so fashionable that he almost dresses himself. She wanted to create something to appeal to his younger audience, and the Cartier jewellery with black suit was the obvious choice.

Ariana Grande Wears Lorraine Schwartz At The 2020 Grammy Awards

Finally, pop singer Ariana Grande turned heads at the 2020 Grammy Awards with her impressive Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace with gigantic pear-shaped emeralds and matching earrings. The star wore the piece with a matching Giambattista Valli custom grey tulle Haute Couture gown, which she used to perform.

Lorrain Schwartz also accessorised pop sensation Lizzo at the event, providing her earrings and a necklace to complement her Atelier Versace white, red carpet gown and custom Christian Siriano black crystal ball gown later used in her performance.
