And of course there were more celebs at the festival but for the sake of this article, we’ll cover celebs with the most fascinating jewelry.

Sonam Kapoor at Cannes 2017

I wanted to write this article as I’ve been swooning over this rosy look by Bollywood actress, Sonam Kapoor.

Sonam knows how to look the best when it comes to the Cannes red carpet.  Her stunning rose gold gown by Elie Saab is spectacular. Rose gold is definitely the color of choice for 2017.

Chandelier Earrings and the haath-phool were especially designed for this event by Kalyan Jewellers. The ear pieces were made of real red rubies, pearls and diamonds.
The earrings were a perfect complement to the rosy-peach gown. These fine jewels gave Sonam’s look a nice touch of Indian culture and tradition. Jewelry in this particular look helped her achieve a nice balance between modern and traditional.

Now let’s get into Sonam’s second look.

This Indian-fusion outfit by Masaba Gupta consists of a three-piece trouser sari, inspired by the sea mermaids.

To accentuate this outfit, jewelry was designed by Suhani Pittie. Suhani is a very talented jewelry designer based in India.

These designer earrings are extremely playful with rose gold finish and sea blue color accents to mimic the mermaid colors.

So here’s the third look of Sonam Kapoor that I truly loved.

You can see her dripping in gold, glitter and everything shiny. Sonam looked like flawless Goddess in her gold outfit by Elie Saab.

In his design style, Elie Saab is known for sheer fabrics and surface ornamentation. The dress itself was so shimmery that it didn’t require any neckpiece.  

However Sonam did adorn herself with one of the most expensive and gorgeous Chopard earrings and rings made with 42 carats diamonds.

Deepika Padukone at Cannes 2017

Deepika Padukone, another popular Bollywood actress, completely rocked the red carpet with the big rocks a.k.a diamond jewelry by de Grisogono

The jewels were designed by Fawaz Gruosi. Fawaz is a designer who understands the potential of jewelry and how relevant it is to a women’s lives.

Deepika Padukone chose these huge earrings to elevate her face and compliment the green eye makeup and outfit.

Although these earrings look fabulous on her, I personally think these were way too big for a small face. However the earrings go well with outfit and overall styling.

She was sporting an earring style that is-between an ear crawler and a regular earring. So bonus points for innovation and trying out new pieces.

In another eye catching look, Deepika wore a stunning wine colored dress by Marchesa which is one of the latest Fall 2017 collections.  

Her outfit was complimented by de Grisogono jewels that included statement earrings and a cocktail ring made up of rubies and diamonds.

These huge earrings were diamond hoop style form and the ring was made of rose gold with Burmese, oval cut ruby.  These are two timeless pieces that will never go out of style.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at Cannes 2017

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is also a popular Bollywood actress, known to many as one of the most beautiful woman in the world.

2017 marked Aishwarya’s 16th year at the Cannes Film Festival. Her beauty remains flawless after so many years in the industry.

This year she paid more attention to her outfits. I didn’t see her wear a lot of jewelry, except in this one look she flaunted chandelier ruby earrings by Faidee. This designer is known for beautiful Burmese rubies.

The earrings looked perfect for the evening and probably one of my personal favorite looks of Aishwarya at Cannes 2017 except for the fact that red dress and red carpet merged and it was a little hard to stand out.

Hailey Baldwin at Cannes 2017

Hailey Baldwin, an American model, rocked the Cannes red carpet with her cobalt blue silk gown, dazzled with jewels by de Grisogono displaying the Ventaglio Collection.

It’s iconic shaped jewels are inspired by a fan and art deco spirit. The gems seem cascading down to emphasize movement and grace.

Hailey wore a pair of Ventaglio earrings, bracelet and a ring. The overall look was put together with a simple outfit, makeup and hair, though most attention was given to the jewels.

Kendall Jenner at Cannes 2017

Kendall Jenner, an American fashion model, wore a mind-blowing couture dress by Marnix Marni, accessorized with statement jewels like Colossal Chopard drop earrings and a cocktail ring by Chopard.

The earrings elevated the entire look to another level. The huge pear-shaped diamonds in each earring were surrounded by floral arcs to make the piece more dramatic and graceful.

Jessica Chastain at Cannes 2017

Jessica Chastain, a Hollywood actress, wore an amazing hand embroidered black gown by  Alexandermcqueen.

To complement her look, she chose the ruby and diamond necklace by Paiget at the opening night. Jessica is also a International Brand Ambassador or Paiget.

This ruby and diamond necklace is a part of the upcoming Sunlight Journey of Piaget High Jewellery Collection. I love this necklace as it consists of rubies and baguette diamonds that are perfect choice for a red carpet look.

Wow, all these stars looked completely dazzling in all their fine jewelry at the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival 2017.

Diamonds have always had a romantic quality to ultimate luxury and glamour. Fine jewelry made with natural gemstones such as diamonds and rubies raise the overall look and beauty of the wearer.

No wonder why we see so many celebs flaunting diamond jewelry on the red carpet.

    Sampat jewelers has been outstanding, great work, reliable and famous in USA Canada and India. With their unique design and authenticity. lower in cost compared to other jewelry stores, What I like about this place is that there are a lot of unique indo-western designs that I could pull off that are traditional yet unique enough.

    Diamonds are women’s best friends but they have changed the slogan to guys too with their creative ideas for guys I loved the diamond studs on men’s wallet great idea.
