You thought statement jewelry meant a chunky necklace? Well, Madonna has redefined the term by adorning herself in a whopping 1,000 carats of diamond jewelry to her Annual Oscars after party. The Queen of Pop created a sensation when she posted a picture of herself on Instagram, clad in a sexy red dress matched with scarlet lips and stunning diamonds that glittered around her neck, wrists and fingers. She also donned an elaborate Johanna Johnson headpiece consisting of Swarovski crystals which have proved to be a favorite with her in the past.
Celebrity jeweler Neil Lane claimed credit for Madge’s blinged out bracelets and earrings, announcing that these alone added up to 1000 carats. On her fingers, she wore a Carrera y Carrera ring from their Bestiary Collection. The ring, shaped like a tiger’s head is drenched in diamonds set in white gold and also features a large smoky quartz. That means that her other jewelry including the cross pendant will probably take the tally even higher! If diamonds are a girl’s best friends, Madonna certainly has quite the posse!
Lane was also jeweler to Anne Hathaway this year whose relatively simple 100 carats were reportedly worth $1 million. Madonna’s jewels then must have rivaled the income of a small country!
The last time we saw this much ice on display was way back in 2008 when Nicole Kidman caused jaws to drop with her 1,400 carat L’Wren Scott necklace. This year however Madonna has cemented her status as the queen of diamonds and one innocent Instagram picture was all it took. When you’re the Queen of Pop, your jewelry does all the talking!
