This year, more than a few gentlemen dared to go beyond the traditional cufflinks and watch—and the red carpet was better for it.

When it comes to Oscar jewelry, women have traditionally had all the fun. They steal the show with mega-watt jewel moments, like Lady Gaga in the 128 carat Tiffany diamond and Charlize Theron dripping in Bulgari diamonds. But what about the boys? This year, a few men abandoned the traditional cufflinks and watch for more daring pieces—and the red carpet was better for it.

Oscar winner Lee wore a bespoke gold, diamond and opal necklace by jewelry designer Amedeo Scognamiglio. The piece was in the form of the symbol that the late singer-songwriter Prince adopted as his name. According to the New York Times, the director frequently wears Scognamiglio's jewelry and for the awards ceremony, Lee told him “make it bigger.”

Ever pushing the boundaries of men’s fashion, Williams layered a custom Jacob & Co. necklace with one of his own-design, in collaboration with Chanel.

Aquaman himself wore his pink velvet Karl Lagerfeld tuxedo (and matching velvet scrunchie) with an eclectic cool set of jewelry. He wore pieces from King Baby, Book of Alchemy, Into the fire, Judicael Sacred skulls, hoboshane, and Red Rabbit.

With the help of his stylist Ade Samuel, Jordan paired his Tom Ford Velvet dinner jacket with lapel pins, diamond rings, and a watch, all from Piaget.

Billy Porter, of Pose and Kinky Boots game, took his jewelry to the next level. Throughout the evening he wore three different jewelry looks, all from famed New York jewelry house Oscar Heyman. While interviewing guests on the red carpet he wore an Oscar Heyman flower brooch through his kravat. At the Oscar ceremony he wore a large diamond ring. At the after part circuit he added a diamond riviere.

Lambert, who opened the 91st Academy Awards by singing a set with Queen, walked the red carpet in a Tom Ford suit, Alexander McQueen shirt, and several diamond earrings and a diamond ear cuff.

The singer went with an oversized lapel pin under the direction of stylist David Thomas. The Dennis Tsuii galaxy pin, made of diamonds and sapphires, was a bold choice but looked masculine and timeless.
