    Predictions for the 2024 Met Gala: plus a look at our Met Gala Worthy Pieces


    Regarded as fashion’s biggest night out, the 2024 Met Gala is mere days away. The first Monday in May is synonymous with extravagance, with celebrities coming together to walk the red carpet and raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

    This Year's Met Gala

    Every year the Met Gala acts as a platform for designers to really push the boundaries of fashion in all regards from the outfit to what we at Hatton Jewels love most - the jewellery. 

    With this year's theme being “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” and the red carpet dress code for the evening being “The Garden Time” complimenting the spring exhibition where archival fashion pieces from Schiaparelli, Dior, Givenchy, and Saint Lauren will be featured.



    According to those in the know, “The Garden of Time” dress code should have us seeing a fairly literal interpretation featuring pearl embellishments, period hair and textured tree inspired designs. Fashion icon Rihanna hinted that her attire for the Met Gala will focus predominantly on hair and makeup this year.

    With the exhibition featuring an array of items from the 17th century Elizabethan era all the way through the 21st century with Stella McCartney having pieces on display at the museum.

    Read on to explore our own take on the theme with the pieces we feel would be perfect for the 2024 Met Gala spanning from stunning Antique Jewellery to showing stopping modern items in our Pre-Owned Collection from famous jewellery houses such as Cartier


    Pre-Owned Cartier Caresse D'Orchidées Diamond Ring

    Starting with this dazzling pre-owned Cartier cocktail ring with double orchid flower design, grain set with brilliant cut Diamonds, crafted in 18ct white gold. 

    An exemplary piece of jewellery for this year's Met Gala, with its floral design matching the “garden in time” dress code and dazzling diamonds making it red carpet ready, adding a glamorous touch to any outfit.

    Early 20th Century Pearl and Diamond Bar Brooch 

    Fitting the “reawakening fashion” theme perfectly plus the expectation to see pearls and period pieces - paired with the rise of mens jewellery and celebrities being at the forefront of this jewellery revolution. 

    Our antique brooch featuring two pearls set onto a bar of alternating grain set split pearls and old cut Diamonds. Making this the perfect accessory for the red carpet, especially for suits.

    Peridot and Diamond Flower Brooch
