Cannes Opening Ceremony Jewellery 2013

Hollywood has moved to Cannes. As have most of the diamonds and jewellery of the world right now. I’m not really one for all this celeb spotting and I don’t want to be a regurgitated version of the tabloid blogs, but this is what’s happening right now and when stylists are making statements and contributing to trends, best we watch.

These gems were all spotted at the Premier of the Great Gatsby and the Cannes film festival opening ceremony. Where it was pouring with rain. And yet these girls managed to look amazing.


Cara Delevingne made a dramatic entrance in black lace by Burberry. She was dripping in Chopard diamonds. Normally I am not a fan of wearing a necklace, ring and earrings but with that fierce face, she could pull anything off.


How much do you love the hairdo? Nicole Kidman wore simple diamond studs and let her outfit and hairstyle do most of the talking.


Isla Fisher wears a Bulgari necklace with a gorgeous red dress. Love the statement necklace and that she decided for a fun piece and not a typical diamond necklace.

Cindy Crawford does not look a day over 30. Seriously, I want this lady’s genes. And earrings. They are from Chopard Fine Jewellery and probably cost as much as a house. Just saying.

And Solange came out er, swinging in the jewellery stakes. Her earrings are also from Chopard and worked so well with her dress. Always one to mix it up, props to her for making a classy statement with her jewellery.


Lana Del Rey wore stunning Chopard earrings which were almost hidden in her hair. Pity that.

As you can see, Chopard ruled the jewellery roost. Well played ladies, well played.


Great Gatsby Jewellery by Tiffany & Co.

If you are a Great Gatsby fan and can’t wait for the film to come out in May, you may have already seen the trailer. The below clip gives you a sneak peek as well as explaining the design and inspiration of the jewellery.

How great does it look? But, most importantly, how amazing are those jewels? Makes me want to go back into the 1920’s, even if it’s just to wear a jewelled headband!

Yes, this baby. I could definitely walk around London with it on right?

Yes, this baby. I could definitely walk around London with it on right? And for only $200 000.00 I could buy two.. Pffft.

As heard in the clip above, Jewellers Tiffany & Co. collaborated with the Great Gatsby costume designer, Catherine Martin, to create a twenties inspired collection called Ziegfeld.

“The jewelry we created for this momentous production of [F. Scott] Fitzgerald’s famous novel and our designs for the Ziegfeld Collection reveal the style of the period and Tiffany as its premier jeweler,” said John King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “Tiffany was certainly part of this era. The brand was at the center of the parties of the rich and famous.”

Enough about that, let’s see the pieces!


This hairclip is my best and probably costs a pretty penny. But how gorgeous to add sparkle to an outfit?


This heart locket necklace on a ribbon is another one of my favourites. The level of detail in the heart makes it a piece I want in my jewellery box. $800 for the locket.


One of the many rings that Carey Mullingan wears in the film. The black Onyx is offset by the pearls beautifully and is $475.


What would the 1920’s be without strings of pearls? I like hoe they have made these unique by using different sizes of pearls and regular intervals so that the simple beauty of the pearls don’t get lost in one solid string. $1000.


Luckily I’m not on that set. I would pull a Lindsay Lohan with this ring let me tell you. It’s a Praseolite ring and will set you back $975.

And there you have it! Now you can wear all these jewels, dress to the part, find a hunky man with lots of money and you could look like the below!


Oh, and dye your hair blonde but that’s a minor sacrifice to look this gorgeous.. [Source: here]
