Zendaya’s Oscars 2021 Red Carpet Jewelry Is Not to Be Missed

Here’s what $6 million worth of drool-worthy diamond Bulgari #neckmess looks like.

This Bulgari necklace is from the brand’s 2021 “Magnifica” high jewelry collection, which will be revealed this summer. Zendaya wore the convertible piece as a choker, with the pendant attached to a necklace, at the 93rd annual Academy Awards.
She goes by one name for a reason. 
 
A presenter at the Oscars on Sunday, Zendaya embodied a modern interpretation of luxury, showing how to make over-the-top diamonds feel youthful and vibrant.

The star’s cut-out, canary yellow Valentino gown and loose goddess-esque waves perfectly tempered the goodies from the Bulgari vault, lending them a slightly bohemian air.
 
Totaling more than $6 million, the star’s layered necklaces and rings are from the upcoming “Magnifica” high jewelry collection and feature 183 carats of diamonds. 
 
The high jewelry convertible choker and necklace are rendered in platinum with a cushion-cut fancy vivid yellow diamond (6 carats) starring as the pendant’s centerpiece.

The 93rd annual Academy Awards were held Sunday, primarily in two locations in Los Angeles and Hollywood with corresponding events in London and Paris, all in the name of social distancing. 
 
Necklaces proved to be the hit of the night among attendees all over the world.
