Ah, this year’s Met Gala, where fashion is in full bloom! This year’s theme, “The Garden of Time,” had stars frolicking in floral down the red carpet in extravagant gowns and avant-garde ensembles, but let’s not forget the sparkling star of this year’s show – the emerald. Did you know that the tiny inclusions in emeralds are called ‘Jardin,’ which is French for ‘little garden’ – talk about keeping the theme alive! So, as celebs strutted their stuff in emerald-studded glory, they were basically walking, talking gardens of time!

Here are the best emerald jewellery pieces at this year’s Met Gala:



Zendaya, the epitome of style, graced the Met Gala red carpet in not one but two stunning ensembles that left fashion enthusiasts in awe. Zendaya channelled old Hollywood glamour for her arrival look in a custom-designed gown reminiscent of a silver screen siren. The stunning emerald earrings, carefully chosen to accentuate the moody blues, greens and purples of her garden-inspired gown, were the perfect finishing touch to her ensemble.

Cardi B.

Cardi B brought both goth glamour and yards (and yards) of black tulle to her Met Gala moment. Her oversized diamond and emerald earrings, bracelet cuff, and rings matched her massive rose inspired gown, definitely stating ‘Go big or go home’. However, the jaw-dropping pear emerald and diamond necklace, cascading diamonds and vibrant green centrepiece truly stole the show, adding a touch of ever-green elegance to her dramatic black rose look.

Demi Moore

Demi Moore had hearts a-flutter with her heart-shaped Harris Reed gown – made entirely of floral silk wallpaper! As sweet as this custom-design dress can be, we simply adore the knockout emerald Cartier necklace and matching earrings. According to Reed, these stunning jewels served as the inspiration behind the floral gown.

Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner was keeping up with the Kardashian clan’s obsession with white with her ensemble, but this ‘momager’ knows how to accessorise with the perfect jewellery pieces. Check out the whopping 125 carats of Lorraine Schwartz emeralds and diamonds!

Eiza Gonzalez

Eiza Gonzalez brought ethereal elegance to the Met Gala red carpet, contrasting her soft pink flower petal gown with a contemporary emerald and diamond necklace from Cartier. Eiza’s  dewy understated look was the perfect canvas for this bold geometric diamond collar with an organic scattering of natural emeralds.

Michelle Yeoh

Michelle Yeoh was a vision of celestial elegance at this year’s Met Gala, gracing the red carpet in a stunning Balenciaga gown. But this shining star’s choice of accessories was genuinely out of this world. Jewellery designer Cindy Chao’s breathtaking emerald and diamond earrings sparkled like miniature galaxies against the backdrop of her gown.
