The Best Diamond Moments from the 2023 Met Gala

The night we have all been waiting for has finally arrived

By |

The First Monday in May, fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala has finally arrived. This is a big night for fashion and natural diamonds, of course. With this year’s theme honoring the late Karl Lagerfeld and his iconic designs (and his love for diamonds), here are the best diamond looks from the carpet.

The singer turned heads and dropped jaws when she stepped on the red carpet wearing Tiffany & Co.’s Lucida Star Necklace. She is the first person to ever wear this reset diamond, which was previously set in Jean Schlumberger’s iconic and celebrity favorite, Bird on a Rock brooch. This Fancy Yellow natural diamond is a 128.54-carat cushion cut, and just divine. Just when you thought the look couldn’t get better, Dua Lipa is wearing the iconic “Chanel Bride” that supermodel Claudia Shiffer wore while closing the 1992 Chanel Fall Couture show.
