Last night’s Met Gala red carpet was one for the record books. Celebrities boldly experimented with the camp theme, resulting in outfits that celebrated playfulness, exaggeration, artifice, and excess. We loved Katy Perry’s chandelier look, Zendaya’s light-up gown, and Lady Gaga’s voluminous number, but the dresses weren’t the only thing that caught our eye: The jewelry on the red carpet was simply breathtaking and deserving of a close-up look.
A slew of celebrities took full advantage of jewelry’s ability to transform an outfit. Lily Collins, for instance, was lucky enough to debut the Cartier Magnitude High Jewelry Collection necklace, which was a particularly special piece. "For this necklace, Cartier gathered an exceptional set of seven rare, round emeralds from Colombia totaling 46.09 carats," the brand explained in a statement. "Contrasts of colors, geometric forms, optical effects—the design borrows the codes of kinetic art. The stones are integrated at the heart of overlapping rock crystal motifs in a stepped architecture." Now that’s what we call a statement necklace. Scroll down to get all the info on the rest of our favorite jewelry pieces from the 2019 Met Gala.
