10. Reese Witherspoon ($3.7 million)
Reese Witherspoon opted for a sleek, turquoise dress in the 2014 Golden Globes, which was rather simple. But, the bling factor of her look was the jewellery she wore. She had three stacked diamond bracelets, an emerald-cut 10-carat diamond ring, and a pair of 4-carat diamond earrings on, together valued at $3.7 million. These were the works of Harry Winston, the revolutionary jeweller based in New York since 1932, and was actually the first jeweller whose designs were seen on the red carpet.
9. Charlize Theron ($4.5 million)
Charlize Theron has been noted to give credits to her styling team for the incredible, almost regal, look, as she dazzled the 2013 Oscars in a white Dior Haute Couture peplum dress, and a fabulous pixie cut. To match the look, she threw in diamond earrings, a diamond finger ring, and three diamond bracelets, in platinum setting. Together valued $4.5 million, these jewellery pieces were also designed by Harry Winston. No wonder, one of the finest red carpet jewellery came from him.
8. Jennifer Lopez ($5 million)
At the 2011 Golden Globe, Jennifer Lopez stole the thunder with the classic combination of white and diamonds. Her sharp, white dress, and embellished shrug was a Zuhair Murad collection. But, the gorgeousness of the dress was taken over by the diamond galore she wore that night. She had a pair of diamond cluster earrings, a 7-carat diamond rind and a bracelet that dazzled with over 600 diamonds. Together, these were of $5 million. But, like a true diva, Lopez made no big deal out of it.
7. Jessica Alba ($6 million)
At the 2013 Golden Globes, Jessica Alba was the perfect showstopper, in a peach dress with a plunging neckline that highlighted a Harry Winston necklace. The $5.8 million diamond piece was a loan from Mrs. Winston. She spent another $.2 million on the diamond ring and earrings, both set in platinum. Alba had to bring security guards, just for the necklace. With $6 million worth of jewellery, she is one of the celebrities wearing the most expensive jewellery pieces on the red carpet.
6. Nicole Kidman ($7 million)
At the 2008 Oscars, Nicole Kidman appeared as a flawless embodiment of beauty, as she wore a simple but glamorous LBD by Balenciaga. But what really made her ensemble stand out was her elaborate necklace by L'Wren Scott. It was studded with over 7,600 diamonds, and took 6,200 long and arduous hours, which sums up to 258 straight days, to complete the piece, custom-made for Kidman. The extravagant piece cost her a whopping $7 million, and it looked the part, as well.
