We’re getting inspired by the dramatic “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme of this year’s Met Gala looks!
Despite some initial confusion (the gala theme was “camp” as in “campy” or theatrically overdone, not as in summer camp), red carpet celebs did not disappoint. We rounded up our favorite 2019 Met Gala looks and fine jewelry so that you can be just as extra.
One of the most unforgettable Met Gala looks of the year, primarily because Leto, er, thought a-head. The next thing we noticed, though, was his scarlet red, embellished gown. Steal some of that drama with a red-hot ruby engagement ring!
This Japanese dancer’s metallic animal-print jacket made serious moves across the red carpet! Kobayashi had one of the more reserved men’s Met Gala looks of the night, and we still loved it. Get that striking print mixed with classic form with this carved men’s wedding ring.
It’s almost impossible to keep Monáe off these red carpet lists because she always takes incredible risks. In this case, we’re so glad she was thinking pink. For a similar bold, graphic burst of color, get our pink sapphire halo necklace.
Perry transformed into a tres-chic chandelier that actually lit up. We can’t help but connect this to Zendaya’s light-up dress, mostly because Katy Perry totally looks like Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast. Fall under the singer’s spell with thesedangling, sparkling earrings.
We’re floored by this entire Met Gala look, from Chopra Jonas’s bold hair and makeup to those colors cascading down her dress. If only there was a way to wear that sparkle and color combo any time… Oh wait. There is. Shop this gemstone and diamond cluster necklace!
Extra, extra, read all about it! We had four (FOUR.) costume changes to choose from before we landed on Gaga’s original hot pink, bow-embellished beautiful monster. Fly like Gaga’s gown with this show-stopping and playful pink sapphire diamond ring.
Of course, we need to begin with the Throne itself. If there’s anything more coveted than ruling the Seven Kingdoms, it’s this dramatic necklace. And to be honest, we’d take these 16 round and baguette cut diamonds over 1,000 daggers – but you know, to each their own.
“The Rains of Castamere” pulled off one of the most impressive and terrifying twists on TV with the Red Wedding. For a slightly happier ending, might we suggest this red wedding ring instead? This way, you can tie the knot with vintage glory and none of the gory.
Throwing it back to the very beginning of the series, these snowstorm earrings embrace the House of Stark’s strength and connection to nature. They’re a meaningful gift for someone with Winterfell-worthy loyalty.
White Walkers’ icy blue eyes are haunting in all the ways. Still, there’s undoubtedly something magical about them. This ring echos the mysterious, legendary power of the creatures from the far north without threatening the destruction of all seven kingdoms.
Joffrey may have been a poisonous sociopath, but at least he was a poisonous sociopath with style. Now that we think about it, you may be more worthy of the golden crown than Cersei’s son. Why not give it a try?
Sometimes the best wedding gifts are the ones you didn’t think to put on your registry, like Daenerys’ three dragon eggs. Snap up this necklace with diamonds and red, yellow, and orange gemstones for a look that’s similarly born from the fire.
This ring’s black bark detailing has us missing the legendary warrior Drogo, a feeling Daenerys knows well. Emulate the boldness of the Great Khal – both in battle and in love – with this unique wedding ring.
The ability to choose your face at all times: creepy or convenient? In the case of this reversible ring, we’d say more convenient. Choose whether you’re feeling diamonds or sapphires on any given day, with a Perfect Fit to hold the stones in front.
It’s been a while, but we’ll never forget the way Drogo called Daenerys “Yer Jalan Atthirari Anni” (“Moon of My Life” in Dothraki). Make a grand romantic statement by gifting this ring to someone who is your entire world.
Although arrows don’t make as dangerous a weapon as dragons, this bracelet is just as killer. In rose gold, this one’s a tribute to Ygritte and her red hair. It’s a piece that proves, once and for all: you know nothing, Jon Glow (too soon?).

Diamond Pendants: Necks Appeal

Everyone can use a good bubble bath, and your jewelry is no exception! Take care of your diamond rings and jewelry with a little TLC, making sure no gems come loose.
Soak your jewelry in a solution of mild dish soap and warm water for a few minutes. Afterward, carefully scrub the metal using a soft cloth, cotton swab, or gentle toothbrush, then rinse.
2. Get Intense Shine
For extra shine in your yellow gold, rose gold, or platinum jewelry, you can follow up the mild dish soap soak with window cleaner. Do not use window cleaner with white gold – the rhodium plating won’t be able to handle such harsh chemicals. Limit this soak to one minute at a time.
After the window cleaner, dip your ring into the mild dish soap solution, rinse it with warm water, then dry it completely.
3. Shield the Shade
You can use ionic cleaners to clean most diamond jewelry, but the electrical current may mess with the hue of certain gemstones. Consider other cleaning methods for colorful gemstone engagement rings and gemstone jewelry
Better sparkly and safe than sorry! It might feel weird to prep for the worst when you’re still perfecting the filter on your ring selfie, but trust us – make sure to insure your jewelry right away in case it gets lost or stolen. Find out how much your homeowner’s and renter’s policies cover, then look into additional policies like Jewelers Mutual.
2. Choose the Right Policy
Make sure you know what you’re getting into! Here are some good questions to ask while you’re researching diamond jewelryinsurance policies:
Do they offer a deductible or discount if you have a home security system?
Does the policy cover you fully if the item is damaged or lost overseas?
Is the diamond jewelry covered at the full replacement cost, and will they give you a cash settlement or a replacement item?
Which appraisal reports does the insurance company accept, and how often do you need to provide them?
There’s more to taking care of your diamond jewelry, including when to wear your diamonds and where to store them. Read on!

As the first points of sparkle a person sees when they look at you, you’ll want to make sure your lobes are suitably lustrous. And there are no more elegant ear accessories than diamond studs, which make for a dazzling first impression.
Thanks to their ear-hugging design, these earrings appear to float on the earlobe as if weightless in space. Whether you opt for the classic basket or super-trendy martini style setting, you’re bound to be flushed with finesse.
Stud-y up on diamond stud earrings with our essential guide.
Diamond studs come in a choice of fab settings including pavé, martini, and basket, each offering varying degrees of comfort and style, as well as durability. To help you decide between them, let’s take a closer look at two of the more popular setting styles.
BASK IN A BASKET SETTING 🧺
Traditional four or six-prong basket settings afford a reasonably good fit. In these diamond studs, the diamond is set low in the frame, so it sits flat against the earlobe.
Well, well, well. Bezel-set diamond studs are sleek, clean, and oh-so-sturdy. They really are the perfect choice for wearers that lead active lifestyles: the bezel setting won’t snag on any fabric, and it’s arguably the most secure setting. Plus, it’s cute AF.
Gorgeous, elegant, and unique – pear-shaped diamonds are taking over the jewelry scene. These shining droplets stand out from the crowd of more common diamond shapes, especially when poised perfectly on your lobes.
The trendiest diamond shape of the past few years is also one of the most flattering shapes for diamond stud earrings. Its curved edges and elongated form compliment every face shape and every wardrobe.
The emerald cut is an in-your-face shape that shows off your diamond’s crystal clarity. It’s one of the earliest established diamond cuts. As such, these emerald-cut diamond studs boast an undeniable royal feel: bold, elegant, and confident.
MARTINI SETTINGS: SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED 🍸
Named for their conical shape, which resembles a martini glass, martini settings are very in right now due to their super-flush fit. Their narrow bottom means that the diamond can be set even closer to the earlobe than standard basket-style settings. Not only do you get a well-balanced and comfortable fit, but the low profile reveals less metal and more diamond.
The prong setting is a total classic. And the double prongs on these slices of bling add an understated pop of flair to a traditionally beloved setting. The minimalist prongs allow light to hit your diamond’s facets from nearly every angle.
Diamond bracelets are a total wardrobe staple, a holiday gift that’s easy to love and impossible to forget. Trying to find the bracelet that matches your style and price point? We’re here to break it down for you! Presenting: your guide to diamond bracelets.
Tennis Bracelets? Love. This versatile style works wonders whether paired with a ballgown or jeans and a t-shirt. While traditional tennis bracelet feature round-cut diamonds all around, fun variations include gemstones, unique diamond shapes, and decorated clasps.
Chain bracelets include more affordable and delicate designs. Their diamond accents add a touch of subtle sparkle – a beautiful way to wear your art on your sleeve. Many chain bracelets also have adjustable clasps, making them a good option for small wrists.
Diamond Bar Bracelet
Diamond Disc Bracelet
Diamond Bracelets: Bangles
The rigidity of diamond bangles allows for elegant and dramatic shapes, proof that a little structure can make creativity shine. Choose a simple bangle to keep it classic or try a more daring statement piece. For the best of both worlds: stack multiple diamond bangles (a look that’s totally on-trend).

Classic Wedding Rings for Women
You can’t go wrong with unadorned metals! These rings are traditional, timeless, and easiest to resize if necessary. Classic wedding rings are known for their comfort, a key quality for everyday wear.
Slightly Curved Wedding Ring
James Allen classic wedding ring styles include high and low dome, knife edge, flat, and traditional slightly curved. To keep it totally classic, pair your solitaire engagement ring with one of these bands.
If you love sparkly jewelry, you’ll love the look of a diamond wedding ring. The stones on these rings can be set in various ways: pavé, which allows for more light to reflect off the diamond; channel, which gives a sleek look and protects the diamonds; or bezel, which encases and secures the outer edge of the diamonds.
Big on style and thin on metal, stackable rings are the gift that keeps on giving. Go ahead, start with a wedding ring – over time, you can customize and add more! James Allen stackable ring styles include gemstones, shape patterns, and twists.
Whether as wedding bands, anniversary rings, or gifts for special occasions, eternity rings are a great way to celebrate infinite love. These rings give a boost of shine to complement engagement and wedding rings. For maximum sparkle, stack your eternity ring with a pavé engagement ring and a diamond wedding band.
Popular since the dawn of jewelry, diamond cluster earrings and diamond cluster pendants provide some serious sparkle.
Why go for simple luster when you can choose cluster? As opposed to the classic diamond stud earrings, cluster diamond jewelry pieces add extra sparkle by featuring one stone surrounded by similarly sized gems. A breathtaking amount of light reflection ensues.
You can opt to keep it classic or surround your diamond cluster with an additional halo of gemstones.
Made of an alloy of gold and copper, rose gold wedding rings are loved for their warm, pinkish color. The copper contents make rose gold wedding bands more durable than other gold rings and keeps the color of the metal vibrant without maintenance. Plus, rose gold is especially difficult to scratch, a major pro for everyday wear.
Twisted Pavé Rose Gold Wedding Band
Rose gold is also known as “red gold” and “pink gold,” and sometimes “Russian gold” as a result of its popularity in early 19th century Russia. In addition to its storied history, rose gold is completely on-trend, rocking the hands of celebrities from Lauren Conrad to Blake Lively.
A rose gold wedding ring symbolizes epic love, whether you choose to pair it with a rose gold engagement ring or an engagement ring of another metal. That’s not to say that rose gold wedding rings are only for women — rose gold wedding bands are also a classy and distinctive choice for men.
