For legions of Game of Thrones fans, Sophie Turner is the formidable Lady Stark of Winterfell. For Nicholas Ghesquière, she is a forever muse, having fronted multiple campaigns for the creative director of Louis Vuitton. But jewellery enthusiasts will have no trouble recognising her signature style—the star’s collection is dotted with investment buys designed to spark envy. For those special occasions on her social calendar, you’ll find her dripping diamonds with all the ease of sliding on a pair of well-loved denims. The key takeaway?
Her statement pieces are never locked up in a vault. The star continued to live up to her lexicon of effortless elegance through her pregnancy, and recently welcomed a baby girl named Willa who will likely someday inherit her repertoire of timeless classics. If you’re looking to refine your jewellery aesthetic, zoom in on the elegant silhouettes that have earned her favour.
Inside Sophie Turner’s jewellery collection
For the many commitments on her social calendar, Turner’s choices are known to oscillate—oversized hoops one day, and barely-there studs the next. The former is usually called upon as a complement for impactful eye makeup looks. A statement winged eye and a chunky iteration of classic silver hoops make for the throw-on-and-go pairing that you’ll want to bookmark for Zoom happy hours. Textured gold iterations, meanwhile, serve as her go-to outfit completer, like the ones she paired with her flirty Mugler dress for a stroll in Paris. While the Eiffel Tower may not be serving as the backdrop of your selfies this year, you can still dip into her parlance of Parisian chic by pairing yours with a slick updo and a raincheck on all other jewellery.
On the red carpet, solitaires and teardrop diamonds play frequent cameos. The bite-sized pieces might be easy to overlook in your trinket box, but Turner believes that you’ll want to ignore them at your own peril. A quick browse through her style files confirms that impact-making hairstyles can be easily anchored by threading some sweet nothings through your ears for a delicate finishing touch. Further proof can be founded in her gilded outing at the Oscars after-party last year, that had her teaming a head-to-toe sequinned gown with classic diamond studs.
While her fidelity to the minimalistic aesthetic is not to be swayed, a high-octane event like the annual Met Gala usually convinces the star to make room for a few exceptions. The first Monday of May last year had her striding up the coveted stairs in a tricked-out catsuit featuring three million sequins, which were mirrored by the lustrous gem-set earrings dangling from her ears. Her insider cred with Ghesquière also means that she gets to call first dibs on the luxury house’s creations. Remember her head-turning entrance at the Emmy Awards last year in a neckpiece featuring 900 diamonds from the brand’s high jewellery collection? By teaming the impactful silhouette with a blush satin column dress, Turner allowed the neckpiece to serve as the focal point of the look.
Decoding Sophie Turner’s jewellery selection for weddings
With Priyanka Chopra for a sister-in-law, it stands to reason that Turner has a few Indian traditional pieces in her repertoire as well, all of which were on display when she visited the country for the star’s Jodhpur nuptials. The 24-year-old opted for thoughtfully selected lehengas for every ceremony on the wedding itinerary, finishing her looks with high-shine pieces. Those on the pursuit of an heirloom piece will want to take notes from her emerald choker and maang tikka, teamed wisely with a blush pink Sabyasachi lehenga. Satlada necklaces and chandbali-style silhouettes earned her vote as well, but the star recommends downsizing to just a maang tikka before heading to the dancefloor on sangeet night.
