The Jewels from Cannes

The 64th International Cannes Film Festival has been on this month and as it is heavily sponsored by Chopard, the couture jewels on the red carpet have definitely been worth watching!

It was nice to see it wasn’t just diamonds at this event – coloured gems definitely made their presence known and it was a lovely change from white diamonds.

Uma Thurman (at top), on this year’s jury, wore these chandelier earrings set with 34 pear-shaped emeralds for a total of 54cts together along with a more understated emerald bracelet. The emeralds just glowed even from a distance and gave some colour to her all white ensemble. Another day, she wore this little diamond cuff. (I’m not jealous, really, I’m not… much!)

Model Bianca Balti went the green route as well, wearing this amazing De Grisogono emerald necklace. I adore the intense colour - she carries it well.

In the sapphire brigade were Fan Bing Bing wearing Cartier and Jane Fonda wearing Chopard.

Rosario Dawson had a showstopper necklace by Faraone Mennella of aquamarine and diamonds and look at the size of those rocks!

The co-president of Chopard, Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele wore a peacock bracelet set with diamonds, emeralds, tsavorite garnets and sapphires with matching earrings. I’m not a fan of this ensemble, but to each their own!

Former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai wore Chopard diamonds - 12cts of pink diamonds in her ears and a whopping 53ct emerald cut diamond on her hand.

Linn Ullmann, Norwegian writer and critic wore a more low key Chopard oval diamond necklace totaling of 46cts. A nice little row of sparkles :)

Penelope Cruz showed great taste wearing these rubelite and diamond earrings. Gorgeous.

Salma Hayek wore pearls with her diamonds in a cuff bangle and earrings.

Although hardly well known in Australia, Italian fashion blogger, Chiara Ferragni wore this Chopard mixed gemstone bracelet and earrings. I love the delicate colour of the gems yet the overall substantial size – I think this might be one of my favourite jewellery sets seen on the red carpet this year.

Till next :)

Fascinating as always Annette.
I love your favourite pieces, such beautiful gentle colours, but I do like Rosario Dawson's necklace as well. Isn't Jane Fonda beautiful.

I so love seeing these glamorous events through your eyes Annette.

For me Uma's earrings and cuff are the stars.

I love when you do these types of posts, Annette. It's so fun to look at the sparklies and dream...

I vote for Fan Bing Bing's sapphire necklace. And I'm cracking up trying to imagine how Rai's 53-ct. diamond would look on my finger!
