Recently the MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit) gala was again filled with big names of Hollywood stars that literally shined on the red carpet with stunning diamond jewelry mainly made by favorite diamond jeweler Lorraine Schwartz! The diamond jewelry could likely become diamond trends for many of us since trends are often made by celebrities. This exclusive social event in New York is one of the biggest annual red carpet fashion events in the U.S. and grows each year. To attend this event the guest and celebrities have to pay, according to sources, $30.000 to attend!
However, to be honest not everyone pays – some stars are guests of brands, which do need to buy a table for a reported $275.000.
Every year the MET gala has a theme, this year it was Manus x Machina: fashion in an Age of Technology- meaning futuristic looks. While the gowns and suits are always the main focus, this year jewelry was an important feature as well.
Find out in this overview which diamond jewelry trends were presented at the MET gala by the stars.
