The team here at Hello! Fashion are notorious magpies… While we’ve loved analysing the stunning dresses and beauty looks we saw at the 2023 Met Gala, we have also been obsessing over the twinkling jewellery, dazzling diamonds and rows of pearls that made their way up the infamous steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Luckily for us there were plenty of dazzling moments from the Karl Lagerfeld themed bash, including a necklace with a staggering price tag, worn by Priyanka Chopra. “It’s been such a privilege to see Priyanka Chopra Jonas wear this magnificent Bulgari creation featuring the truly exceptional Laguna Blu Diamond on such a stellar occasion,” stated Olivier Wagner, Head of Jewellery at Sotheby’s Geneva, “A unique 1970 Fancy Vivid blue diamond, the Bulgari Laguna Blu will be offered for sale in excess of $25 million by Sotheby’s Geneva later this May.”

Priyanka wasn’t the only one who sported an archival piece of course. Dua Lipa teamed her incredible vintage Chanel bridal gown with the most jaw-dropping jewels by Tiffany & Co. On the red carpet Dua revealed that her "very special" necklace has never been seen before, and was loaned from Tiffany & Co.'s vault especially for the occasion.

Likewise Anne Hathaway also had a knockout vintage moment wearing a necklace that boasted an ancient Greek coin from Bulgari’s Monete collection, “As always, it is a true pleasure to have the opportunity to wear Bulgari jewels,” Anne said of her baubles, “I am so excited to wear these pieces to the Met Gala as Monete is among my favourite Bulgari collections. I think it’s so cool how it incorporates ancient coins into modern yet timeless design. These pieces beautifully represent the heritage and pioneering spirit of the brand in a way that is palpable-you can feel it.”

11 best jewellery moments at the 2023 Met Gala:

Priyanka Chopra

Bulgari Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas wore a magnificent Bulgari High Jewelry necklace featuring the Bulgari Laguna Blu Diamond. The shape of the necklace honours the city of Rome with its interlocking diamonds, inspired by the bay laurel wreaths worn by emperors in Greco-Roman antiquity. Stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray worked with Priyanka Chopra Jonas on her Met Gala look, choosing the piece for its extraordinary colour and explained, “Absolutely enchanting to behold, the Bulgari Laguna Blu captures the essence of Bulgari’s exuberant style, a legacy that has been interwoven with Hollywood glamour since the 1950s. It also nods to Bulgari’s birthplace of Rome, capturing the brand’s ancient heritage in the most modern way”.

Bulgari’s global brand ambassador Anne Hathaway channelled Bulgari’s signature aesthetic wearing a necklace from the Monete Collection at this year’s Met Gala. The High Jewellery Monete necklace in yellow gold was set with one ancient silver coin (Lucania, Velia, 400-350 B.C.) and pavé-set diamonds worth 34.85 carats.

It reaches deep into the past and transforms an antique coin into something completely new,” Erin explained, “Anne is wearing a Monete High Jewelry necklace, which feels like the perfect piece for a modern-day Bulgari muse.”
