91ST ACADEMY AWARDS®
Constance Wu dazzles in Swarovski Created Diamonds and Genuine Topaz
Actress Constance Wu brought Conscious Luxury to the 91st Academy Awards® red carpet, wearing bespoke pieces from Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.
A presenter at the awards, Wu sparkled in long drop earrings, ring and bracelet made with Swarovski Created Diamonds and Swarovski Genuine Topaz set in responsibly sourced gold. She most recently starred in Warner Bros Pictures’ romantic comedy hit, Crazy Rich Asians, for which she received Golden Globe® and Critics Choice® nominations. Constance also stars in the ABC comedy Fresh off the Boat and is the sole actor to star in and lead both breakthrough projects for Asian American representation in Hollywood.
The show-stopping jewelry creations were designed especially for Wu, adding opulence and glamour to the red carpet of Hollywood’s biggest night. The pieces – inspired by natural, floral shapes – feature a dazzling combination of 7.52 carats of Swarovski Created Diamonds and 94.52 carats of Swarovski Genuine Topaz, and took a team of seven master craftsmen over 150 hours to complete. Comprised of marquise, pear, and round brilliant cuts arranged in cluster formations, these one-of-a-kind jewels are a celebration of unreserved femininity and style.
Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski Executive Board, commented: “We are delighted to collaborate with Constance Wu to shine a light on Conscious Luxury at the 91st Academy Awards. Constance looks absolutely stunning in her custom-designed Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry pieces, which were handcrafted using materials that underscore our ongoing commitment to creating beautiful products in a responsible way.”
Swarovski Created Diamonds are grown in a state-of-the-art lab yet have the same optical, chemical and physical attributes as mined diamonds – both are 100% carbon, both have the same hardness and brilliance. Swarovski Genuine Topaz is from traceable sources in Brazil.
