Lady Gaga in Tiffany diamonds.

The Met Gala 2019 which was held on Monday (6 May) did not fall short of mesmerising looks and very, very expensive jewelry. Had you blink once, you’d probably miss it!

While some of the most-talked about outfits of the night were Katy Perry’s Moschino chandelierHailey Baldwin’s thong dress; to Kim Kardashian’s wet look, the night continued on with a sparkly note as the celebrities whizzed around in diamonds and stones (some equipped with security as well!).

Cartier had draped Lily Collins with a high jewellery piece that is composed of 59.75 carats of emeralds and set in rock crystal - all rare emeralds from Colombia.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ star Rami Malek also dazzled in a Cartier Panthere de Cartier brooch in 18k white gold, onyx, emeralds and diamonds.
