The Extravagant MET Gala

& Its Jewels

10th May 2019

First Monday of May is equal to extravagance, fashion icons and also, high jewellery. This year again, the MET Gala welcomed international celebrities to shine bright on the theme «Camp: Notes on Fashion». Actors, supermodels, singers, fashion designers and renown influencers were highly sponsored by jewellery brands.

Among them, Bulgari conquered many of the prestigious names such as their brand ambassador Lily Aldridge, but also Naomi Campbell, Hailey Bieber, Miley Cyrus. Many of the creations were part of Bulgari’s archives, as well as their iconic Serpenti collection. The MET Gala being an extra American event, it was surprising to discover most of the creations from the Italian jeweller that evening.

This Art Deco style creation, composed of diamonds and yellow gold, is perfectly matching the brand's identity and creativity. The butterfly is a long-standing icon of Tiffany and already landed several times on celebrities' neck such as Kendall Jenner. 
Lady Gaga combined this necklace with diamonds earrings and 5 extravagant rings, among them a 15 cts diamond ring worth $1.16 M USD. Nothing is too much for Gaga..
