Stars grazed through the French Riviera, adorned with stunning gems, diamonds, pearls, and more
With the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in full swing, show-stopping looks have become the talk of the town as the film world’s finest gathered to celebrate the magic of cinema. And not only does the renowned festival showcase a diverse selection of films, but also a wide array of exquisite jewelry worn by some of our favourite celebrities on the red carpet.
As stars grazed through the French Riviera, they adorned themselves with stunning gems, diamonds, pearls, and more.
Here are some of our favorite jewelry looks:
Russian model Irina Shayk sizzled on the red carpet in a daring ensemble consisting of a minimalist bra top and a leather maxi skirt – a look from Mowalola’s fall/winter 2023 ready-to-wear collection. But what stole the shoe was Messika’s iconic ‘ Akh-Ba-Ka’ necklace. The necklace features a 33-carat cushion diamond set in Single Mine Origin (SMO) white gold, the main stone of seven in the pendant all of which are all members of the same ‘family’, cut from a single 110-carat Botswanan diamond.
While the ‘Black Swan’ star’s A/W 2017 Dior dress proved absolutely stunning, what made her look even more dazzling was her choice of jewelry. The actress wore a Chopard necklace crafted in 18k fair mined-certified white gold, set with over 119 carats of blue heart-shaped sapphires and over 36 carats of white diamonds which she wore with matching white diamond earrings and a sapphire and white diamond ring.

Complementing the extravagant piece, she adorned herself with more diamond jewelry pairing it with studs and hearty rings.
Thai actress Araya Hargate graced the red carpet for the ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ premiere in Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2022 Haute Couture. However, what made an even bigger statement were her stacked Bulgari Serpenti necklaces.

She paired her extravagant look with the collection’s bracelets, rings, and earrings.
