Julia Garner, Cate Blanchett and Other A-Listers Brought Color to Cannes

Emeralds were the vibrant stone that rivaled the best of the diamond looks.

CaNNES MIGHT HAVE been The Emerald City during the 2023 Film Festival, considering the amount of the vibrant green gems being worn by A-listers during the 12-day event. Emeralds have been trending for some time (since color seems to be here to stay), and it’s a gemstone that looks good on, well, everyone. It is also the stone of renewal, prosperity and hope, and this optimism and symbolism of the stone paves a way to a brighter future.

But let’s get back to the jewels. The emeralds ranged from antique-inspired to ultramodern in their interpretations. Let’s start with Julia Garner, who accented her vivid green Gucci gown with Gucci High Jewelry of emerald and diamond drop earrings and a large emerald with diamond accents ring. And let’s not forget that during the MET Gala, Garner also wore Belperron bracelets with emeralds stacked on one wrist.

Another A-lister wore edgier jewels than she has in years: Cate Blanchett wore Louis Vuitton High Jewelry ear climbers with emeralds and diamonds with one of her outfits at Cannes.

And although many of these celebrities are ambassadors for the brands they wear, it doesn’t make it any less stunning or any less of a trend when you see multiple actresses and models wearing the same gem.

Two other jaw-dropping earrings were Fan Bingbing’s ultra-long emerald pear-shaped and diamond earrings, and Soo Joo Park in Chopard geometric emerald earrings.

Are you green with envy yet? I know it’s got me hankering for a new emerald pair of earrings of my own, or maybe a ring like the one Garner wore.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
