The red carpet nears as the cameras flash, crowds cheer, and all eyes will be on… the platinum jewelry!

With jewelry trends skewing highly in favor of pieces that frame the face, here are some platinum predictions for the Best Actress in a Leading Role nominees. What bold and beautiful marvels await?

Cate Blanchett (Carol) wearing Diamond Scene New York:

Cate Blanchett has been known to wear the most regal of jewels (the Tiffany & Co. turquoise and platinum necklace she wore to the previous Academy Awards is still being talked about!). I’d love for her to become the talk of the town once more with this utterly stunning yellow and white diamond necklace from Diamond Scene New York; full of platinum glamour paralleling her character in Carol as she accepts her true self and, amidst various forms of opposition, finds love.

Brie Larson (Room) wearing Charles Holl:

I predict that Brie Larson will embrace a platinum jewelry arm party like this sapphire bracelet offered by A La Vieille Russie. With its spectacular shapes and heavenly color, it brings to mind feelings of hope and relief when her character, Joy, is finally liberated from stifling circumstances centering around a small enclosure that represented her whole world. The strength of platinum allows for multiple sapphires to be invisibly-set, a feature which echoes Joy’s often silent but driving will to live.

Jennifer Lawrence (Joy) wearing Nadine Krakov Collection:

For Jennifer Lawrence, perhaps something exuding warmth and femininity. This multi-strand coral necklace with platinum wreath terminals from Nadine Krakov Collection has a pleasing drape that celebrates the durability of platinum: able to create delicate leaves without any excess metal, it wonderfully reflects Lawrence’s character in Joy—her determination to rise from less-than-idyllic circumstances to find beauty in life and foster her own happiness by becoming a successful businesswoman.

Charlotte Rampling (45 Years) wearing Van Cleef & Arpels:

A magnificent and important strand of Van Cleef & Arpels pearls via Yafa Signed Jewels befitting Charlotte Rampling: a multi-lingual polymath of the arts, veteran of the acting industry, and icon of the Swinging Sixties. The platinum cruciform seems at once weighty and mysterious… which mirror the intrigue Rampling’s character, Kate Mercer, witnesses in 45 Years when her husband’s long-frozen secret becomes exposed.

Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn) wearing Vivid Diamonds & Jewelry:

I love that the platinum in this collar necklace from Vivid Diamonds & Jewelry is not merely shaped into a bow—a sizable length of ribbon is fashioned and completely studded with diamonds. It would be an exquisite platinum jewelry choice for Brooklyn star Saoirse Ronan who, as Eilis Lacey, discovers two important connecting threads of life: while living is rarely as neat as one expects and difficult choices must be frequently made, there is always opportunity to flourish.
