The Oscar 2020 prizes were also (virtually) awarded to the jewels seen on the red carpet. In fact, clothes and jewels have always been part of the show of the most glamorous evening. And even the actresses who did not win the magical statuette (by the way: do you know why it is called Oscar? We explain it to you a few lines below) had the satisfaction of parading with memorable jewels.
Let’s start with those signed Tiffany. Charlize Theron showed up on the red carpet in a splendid Tiffany High Jewelry Collection Autumn 2020 necklace: diamonds of D color (the best), internally flawless, for over 21 carats. The necklace sported by Theron has a value of over 5 million dollars and is composed of 165 diamonds. Always by Tiffany rings and earrings.
Amazing necklace, also Tiffany’s, for Gal Gadot, with over 76 total carats of diamonds for 11 carats and valued for over 2 million dollars. Gadot’s necklace, in the role of presenter, was created by Tiffany’s master craftsmen in almost two years of work. Gadot completed her look with brilliant Tiffany diamond earrings and a Tiffany diamond ring of over 9 carats.
Platinum necklace from the Tiffany collection of high jewelry Spring 2020 for the model and actress Camila Morrone. The diamond necklace weighs over 46 carats.

Why it’s named Oscar
By the way: why are the golden statuettes symbolizing the award given by the Academy Award of Merit called Oscar? According to the most accepted theory, the name is a trivial coincidence: it derives from the exclamation of an employee of the Academy, Margaret Herrick, who at the sight of the first statuette exclaimed: “It looks just like my uncle Oscar!”. A name that nobody has taken from it anymore.
A Damiani necklace, instead, for Cho Yeo-Jeong, the Korean actress from Parasite: Oscar winner film 2020.
