Photos of the 2014 Met Gala trickled onto the internet, while a new trend emerged: the diamond statement necklace. Considered one of the premier fashion events, the Met Gala is one of the biggest fundraising nights and an opportunity for celebs to don designer gowns and breathtaking jewelry and accessories.

The ornate necklace paired beautifully with the simple white dress and drew the eye upward, which was a challenge with Rhianna’s bare midriff. Lily Aldridge wore a series of interlinking diamond studded ovals, which featured a simple Celtic knot at the top of each oval. A single diamond of significant size held center court at each oval, adding movement and emphasis. The brilliant white of the diamonds complemented the strapless Michael Kors silver lamé draped dress she wore. Karolina Kurkova wore a 55-carat Harry Winston necklace with an ornate but open floral design. Leaves and blooms interwined to create a finishing statement for her navy Marchesa gown with handpainted floral print. Allison Williams wore a coral silk Oscar de la Renta gown, accented by a 19th century diamond laurel leaf necklace. These celebrity jewelry styles are featured in all the fashion magazines, as well as at Jewelsdujour.com. Moyer Fine Jewelers also carries several of these iconic diamond statement necklaces and accompanying earrings. But you don’t have to be scheduled to attend a gala ball to wear diamonds. We also have several accessible diamond necklaces meant to be worn daily, rather than just for special occasions.
