A Week of Fun & OTT
Every first Monday of May, fashion enthusiasts the world over wait with bated breath for the Met Gala, one of the most important fashion events where celebrities pull all stops to look outrageous (in a good way) in their choice of outfits and jewels - this is the only chance they get to be audacious without really being questioned, so we can't really blame them, can we?

This event is equally important for the jewellery fraternity, as it sets the tone for the colours that are going to be in the rest of the year and also gives them an idea about what gemstones are really catching the fancy of designers and high jewellery houses across the board.

With the theme "Camp: Notes on Fashion" inspired by Susan Sontag's essay "Notes on Camp", the Met Gala saw it all when it came to jewellery. Statement necklaces, cocktail rings, headgears, massive pendants, statement earrings, you name it, it was there! The choice of gemstones was synonymous with the mood of the entire event - every bit fun and frivolity. We saw sapphires in every possible colour (oh how much we love JLO's 65ct purple sapphire necklace), emeralds, amethysts, orangish topaz, flaming fire opals and carnelians and diamonds, lots and lots of diamonds.

Amidst constant uncertainty and economic meltdown the world is currently facing, watching these celebs traipse the "pink" carpet and having so much fun was like catching a breath of fresh air!
