Red-carpet jewelry is serious business, and even more serious when the event in question is the Oscars. The most prestigious awards ceremony of the year brings with it some incredible bling, the price tags of which would make any rational adult’s jaw drop. These breathtaking, high-jewelry looks are the result of careful planning, with some of the top A-listers getting compensated with mean dollar figures in return for simply wearing them. The rest, as they say, is history – the most memorable looks go on to become iconic in both fashion and film, discussed globally in the days and weeks (and even months and years) that follow.

So exactly what moments are we talking about here? Angelina Jolie’s emerald earrings were key for colored-gemstone jewelry on the diamond-dominated red carpet, while the appearance of Gloria Stuart’s ‘Heart of the Ocean’ necklace from the movie Titanic is one of the most heartwarming (and expensive) images in Academy Awards history. To see Savoir Flair’s roundup of the most pricey red-carpet jewelry looks from the Oscars to date, browse through the gallery below.
