Jewelry at the Met Gala 2017


The Met Gala was Monday, May 1st and the jewelry trends on the red carpet this year proved to be truly artistic. From mis-matched earrings and unusual stones, to ear cuffs and stunning brooches, it didn’t disappoint.

“In honor of the new Costume Institute exhibit, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between, guests at the Met Gala were instructed to adhere to an “avant-garde” dress code.

Daisy Ridley translated cutting-edge to real-life with her mismatched pair of Nirav Modi earrings. She wore the brand’s Celestial Earring in her right ear and Luminance Long Earring in her right ear. Both styles feature white diamonds set in 18-karat white gold.”

“Leave it to the always impeccably outfitted Elle Fanning to take the plunge and don a head piece. This aquamarine and diamond Fred Leighton antique perfectly embodies Fanning’s angelic style.”

“No one could accuse singer Cassie of being a wallflower in this major custom “Starburst” ear piece from accessories designer Rinaldy A. Yunardi. Lest any photographer not get her best side, she opted to wear a matching pair.”

These Irene Neuwirth sapphire earrings worn by actress Sarah Paulson were beautiful!

Keri Russell wore a cabochon ruby, diamond, 18-karat gold and platinum David Webb brooch that stood out on the red carpet.

And finally, Rihanna certainly didn’t disappoint with her outfit, but her tourmaline, ruby, pastel pink sapphire and black diamond earrings set in 18k white gold were gorgeous!
