Shine bright like a diamond? Well, our Bollywood stars certainly know how to. From grand functions to red carpets, these divas have worn diamonds that have stunned the world. The secret behind it? They don't just wear it as a piece of embellishment, but as an extension to their own personality. Let's dive into some of the most epic diamond looks by our very own b-town favourites.
1) Priyanka's Dazzling Bulgari at the Met Gala
Our desi girl gone global, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, is a bona fide style icon. Her association with Bulgari has given us some amazing diamond moments. This year’s Met Gala was no exception. Dressed in a magnificent black Valentino gown, Priyanka stunned everyone with an 11.3-carat Bulgari diamond necklace. Known as the Bulgari Laguna Blu, this $25 million gem gets its name from its oceanic blue colour. This diamond was initially set as a ring in 1970 and remains the most significant Bulgari blue diamond ever auctioned. Like priyanka herself, it seems, some diamonds get better with time.
2) Deepika's Oscar Elegance with Cartier
Making India proud, Deepika Padukone presented at the Oscars this year. Channelling vintage Hollywood, she chose two brands she endorses - Louis Vuitton and Cartier for her jewellery. Even though she wore a stunning black velvet gown, it was her striking Cartier diamond necklace that grabbed everyone’s attention. This necklace showcased a magnificent pear-shaped yellow diamond pendant. The diamond alone had a bling so striking, she skipped earrings altogether. However, her ensemble was beautifully complemented by a matching diamond bracelet and ring on her gloved hands. Truly, the epitome of elegance!
3) Aishwarya’s Shiny Rock at Cannes
Our favourite Cannes- regular, Aishwarya Rai, has given us some really memorable fashion moments at this film festival, year after year. In 2011, she chose diamond jewellery that matched her own beauty. She sported a breathtaking 53-carat Chopard diamond ring. It was so sizable, it seemed like a crown jewel! To complement it, she wore elegant 12-carat white diamond earrings, also from Chopard's collection. With a ring that stunning, who needs a necklace? A perfect diamond moment!
4) Sonam’s unique Mosque themed diamonds
Sonam Kapoor is everyone’s go-to when looking for style inspiration. She simply gets it right every time. So when she became the face for the Bulgari Mosque themed high jewelary collection, we knew we were in for a treat. Inspired by the intricate flower mosaics of Abu Dhabi's iconic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the collection is a celebration of heritage. Sonam chose to wear a breathtaking necklace with diamond encrusted pieces punctuated with precious emeralds. Without a doubt, she lived up to her fashionista reputation, beautifully carrying jewels that blended Italian artistry with Emirati heritage.
5) Kangana shines in Sabyasachi Jewellery
The fierce and ever-so-stylish Kangana Ranaut made her Cannes debut in a classic black saree by Sabyasachi. But what truly completed her ensemble was the teenmaniya necklace – a melange of rose-cut diamonds, Colombian emeralds, and Basra pearls. Picked from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection, this necklace was a nod to Kangana's love for retro yet regal looks. Her appearance truly reminds everyone why she’s considered Bollywood royalty – with a taste in jewellery as dazzling as her cinematic choices.
From the Cannes to Oscars, these celebrating stars have only proven that diamonds will never go out of style. Here's to more glittering moments in the future!
