A Look Back: The Best Jewelry at Cannes

There have been a lot of unforgettable treasures

by Marion Fasel

There is almost as much jewelry—maybe more—during the eleven days of the Cannes Film Festival as there is during the entire Awards Season in the first couple of months of the year.  Clearly, the glamour of the South of France and the proximity to the couture center of Paris inspires megawatt looks.  Chopard, of course, has also helped the cause by being a key sponsor of the event for 20 years.  Oh, and there is a strictly black tie rule that means even the paparazzi have to be dressed in tuxedos and gowns.

The abondance made the task of putting together a “Best of” list daunting.  So, in honor of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening today, I have assembled highlights that have lingered in my mind from the last several years.  If you are wondering about vintage jewelry glamour.  The truth is, with the exception of Elizabeth Taylor and a few moments for Sophia Loren, jewels on the red carpet were scant until actresses started working directly with the big design houses.
