Red carpet jewelry trends

The Cannes red carpet jewelry trends have not disappointed and so far the 68th edition of the annual film festival has been a showcase for some of the most scintillating jewels.

Since May 13, the red carpets of the Croisette have glittered with lashings of diamonds, contrasted by deep berry and green-hued gemstones. Actresses and starlets have stood side-by-side, earrings tracing their collarbones, detailed cuffs encircling their wrists.

From Bulgari and De Grisogono to Cannes favourite Chopard, each famous jewelry house has presented statement collections to admire and inspire. Among the jewelry trends so far are nude-tone cabochon stones, the shine of Fairmined yellow gold from Chopard, and the clash of turquoise, rubellite and ink-blue sapphires.
