Fabulous Jewelry at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival

Every awards ceremony that involves celebrities and all of their glamour provides viewers with a lot of eye candy, i.e. phenomenal jewelry. The Cannes Film Festival, which takes place every year, tends to attract celebrities dressed in some of the most genuinely suitable ensembles and classiest jewelry pieces, which needless to say is an excellent promotion for all the fine jewelry companies. This year was no different with actresses appearing in jaw-dropping pieces from some of the biggest names in the industry. Let's take a look at the most significant showstoppers and their sensational models.

Julia Roberts's Magnificent Emerald Necklace

How can we not begin with the eternal sweetheart of Hollywood, Julia Roberts? In addition to being a stupendous actress and charismatic individual, she also has fantastic taste in jewelry. The Red Carpet Collection necklace featuring an oversized emerald stone was one of the showstoppers of the evening. It was the perfect accent to her plunging neckline of her black gown. Julianne Moore wore delightful emeralds as well; emerald earrings and a matching emerald ring.

Heidi Klum Stuns in Floral-Themed Jewelry

Supermodel and mom of four, Heidi Klum, was radiant in a pale yellow getup and contrasting turquoise-colored, floral-themed, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. The flirtatious neckpiece fit her deep V-neckline perfectly and the stud earrings and a cocktail ring completed the outfit flawlessly.

Alessandra Ambrosio's Serpent Necklace

We have seen serpent-themed necklaces and jewelry before upon various stars and celebrities over the years, but the extraordinary piece worn by Alessandra Ambrosio on The Last Face red carpet was nothing short of exquisite. Bulgari is responsible for this Serpenti necklace as well as Alessandra’s rings.

Svetlana Khodchenkova Sports Colorful Bib Necklace

Russian actress, Svetlana Khodchenkova, donned a unique and colorful bib necklace by Bulgari. The Haute Joaillerie necklace consisted of several vibrant-colored stones upon a sturdy necklace, perfectly complementing her strapless royal blue getup. Naomi Watts wore a similar multi-colored bib necklace by Bulgari as well.

The list of unbelievable jewelry seen at this year’s Cannes Film Festival can go on forever, with beauties from all across the globe displaying gorgeous gemstones, precious metals, and brilliant designs. The styles range from simple and classic to flamboyant and contemporary, but the one thing we noticed more than anything else was the addition of lots of color! Whether it be fancy colored diamonds or remarkable gemstones, today’s celebs seem to steer away from the colorless gems.

We have seen a little bit of everything upon our favorite celebrities as well as on those we were slightly less familiar with. In short, the festival did not disappoint and only further proved how much jewelry can evolve and how at the same time, some things (like classic gemstones and diamonds) never change.
