The first week of May, a buzz is in the air surrounding this years Met Gala. What and who will they wear?
Gilded Glamour, what is it? Well lets go back in time to the year 1870. Corsets and skirts were normal and women didn't wear pants, but jewelry was all about status from diamonds, platnium, gold and a vareity of gemstones and pearls. Timeless beauty and craftsmanship in theses pieces is breath taking.
The carpet is rolled out, celebrities walk out as the crowd gasps especially when Blake Lively stepped out under the lights between the tiara and earrings by Lorraine Schwartz dazzling the world.
We had a showing of diamonds,gemstones and vintage jewelery from Cartier. Emma Chamberlin stepped out in a diamond antique tiara circa 1911 , a diamond choker necklace with modern Cartier earrings. Alicia Keys wore Tiffany&Co diamond and emerald earrings as she wowed the crowd.
