Celebrity Jewelry

Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Alessandra Ambrosio Bring Color to Cannes

They shone in vibrantly colored jewels.




AT THIS YEAR’S Cannes Film Festival, the opening ceremony and opening night premiere Jeanne Du Barry brought together A-list actresses and celebrity models in some of the most jaw-dropping gowns and jewels — which is traditionally the case at the event. Many of the jewels at the festival were from Chopard’s new high jewelry collection, as the brand has been a major sponsor of the event since 1998 and has created jewels for it for the past 76 years. Some of those jewels were worn by Uma Thurman and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who both emphasized red in their ensembles.

Thurman wore a red cape with a paler gown and finished the look with one of my favorite necklaces of the evening, a multi-strand ruby choker with a centerpiece. The choker was accented by smaller ruby earrings, a wide diamond bracelet and a thinner ruby bracelet worn on the same wrist.

Zeta-Jones captivated in a fiery red gown with what I am guessing were ruby earrings, although they could have been spinels — information on the stones has not been released. She also wore a huge ring that definitely looked like an emerald cut ruby surrounded by diamonds.

Safe to say, the bold color in a sea of mostly diamonds (all beautiful, all worthy of a mention) was the jewelry highlight of the opening night.

Speaking of a vivid jewelry palette, Alessandra Ambrosio wore the dazzling Pomellato Skyline necklace and earrings suite, which has a brilliant ombre effect. A spokesperson for the company reported that the design was inspired by Milan’s architectural landscape and was handset with 128 rare, bezel-cut spinels, ranging from scarlet to azure blue, accented with pavé of diamonds. Matching earrings finished off the look.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
