Best Oscars Jewelry of the Decade

Best Oscars Jewelry of the Decade
Hilary Swank's intricate diamond necklace ushered in a new century at the Academy Awards ceremonies. The next year, most celebrities arrived wearing the standard fare of large diamonds and platinum, but two, Juliette Binoche and Ashley Judd, pulled off a successful flapper look.
The 9-11 terror attacks were just a few months in the past when the 2002 Oscars were presented, and most stars wore subdued jewelry as a way of showing respect for the victims. Jada Pinkett Smith's jewelry is an excellent example of the understated elegance we saw that year.

Large earrings in every style imaginable were popular in 2003 and 2004, and by 2005 showy jewelry of all sorts had returned.

In 2007, stars arrived at the Oscars with (taller) diamond-stacked wrists, a trend that continues today.

As the end of the decade neared, Oscars jewelry included styles created from black and colorful diamonds, along with designs fashioned from many other colored gemstones.
