The Jewellery of The Met Gala 2023
Fashion’s biggest night of the year, the Met Gala 2023, a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Each year has a different theme, with this year's theme celebrating the legacy of one of fashion's most decorated and hyperactive designers, who is known for his starched collars and perfect ponytail - Karl Largerfeld with the theme being ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty’. And of course, what’s more beautiful than Diamonds!
The gowns worn by the A-list attendees were jaw dropping, with exceptional pieces of jewellery to elevate the looks. With it widely being a black and white colour palette making the perfect backdrop for the stunning jewellery worn to the event. With Kim Kardashian in 50,000 Pearls, Dua Lipa in Tiffany & Co and Rihanna in Bulgari, the night saw lots of exceptional Pearls and Diamonds.
Kim Kardashian wore numerous strands of freshwater Pearls laid on top of a tan corset, using even more pearls to fashion a full-length skirt, both being decorated with 16,000 crystals. A stunning homage to Largerfeld who often used the gem in his work.
Dua Lipa, as one of the co-hosts of the event, was selected to wear the biggest Tiffany piece of the evening. Wearing a white and black tweed ballgown from Channel, Dua Lipa wore an exquisite Diamond necklace featuring the white ‘legendary’ Diamond of over 100 carats, designed to pay homage to the iconic yellow Tiffany Diamond with its almost identical cushion cut.
Rihanna was another celebrity wearing who’s attire featured some breathtaking jewellery, Rihanna known as a fashion icon with her legendary looks for the Met Gala, with this year being no exception wearing a Bulgari High Jewellery necklace with five pear diamonds, 118 Akoya cultured pearls, seven pear diamonds, 109 round Diamonds and 561 fancy shape Diamonds. It is accented by pavé-set Diamonds. Her earrings were Diamonds and Pearls in the form of camellias, symbolic of Largerfeld’s work.
