Cannes and its splendor and glittering jewels of the stars invited to the international film festival
It's not just movie stars shining on the red carpet. Each year, dazzling jewels have a considerable impact on the Cannes Film Festival and the city itself. We will examine the relationship between the event and the major jewelry brands worn by the biggest celebrities. We will quickly see the lasting glamor of the Côte d'Azur.
Jewelry is an important part of the Cannes Film Festival. Exquisite creations of brands such as Chopard, Boucheron and others adorn the ears, neck and wrists of the main actresses of the day.
Cannes is also a history of jewelery
Once a year, in May, the brilliant Boulevard de la Croisette gains a little more luster thanks to the Cannes Film Festival. Movies are often revolutionary, elegant ball gowns and fabulous parties. However, that's not all! A striking detail is particularly hard to miss: jewelry.
Cannes in all its splendor! We will introduce you to the beautiful glittering jewels of celebrities who came to the red carpet at the 72nd edition of the International Film Festival. Chopard, Boucheron, Cartier, Bulgari, de Grisogono.
The Riviera and jewelery are inextricably linked. If it were not the festival, it would be the Europeans who shine at Club 55 with their earrings or who would try their luck at the Casino of Monte Carlo, sparkling fingers of precious stones.
What makes the unbridled glamor of southern France attract these sparkling jewels and the brands that create them?
Cannes and Chopard, a long partnership
Chopard has been an official partner of the Cannes Film Festival since 1998. It was the year of the redesign of the famous Palme d'Or trophy. This is a brand closely linked to the festival and Cannes. Since 1998, it is one of the official partners of the event. The alliance was initiated by Caroline Scheufele. She, as Artistic Director and Co-President, has helped turn Chopard into a global brand of quality jewelry and watches.
In addition to hosting sumptuous evenings each year during this event, the brand also reviewed the Palme d'Or trophy. This is how the beginning of the partnership was given. Since 2001, she sponsored her own Chopard Trophy. As a reminder, this one is awarded to two talented young actors each year. A special edition of the Palme d'Or engraved with diamonds was also created two years ago.
However, the brand does not only provide gold trophies. Each year, dozens of high-profile stars adorn themselves with the most spectacular creations of the field of fine jewelery.
The descent to Cannes of musicians, celebrities and actors to celebrate the Chopard Festival
Enduring collaborations with celebrities helped define the brand. These celebrities are Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard and Catherine Deneuve. A special collection with Rihanna, in recent years, has also brought the world of music into the circle of Chopard.
Since 2013, the brand collaborates with Livia Firth on the collection Green Carpet. In this way, she produces sustainable jewelery using Fairmined gold and diamonds from ethical sources. In 2014, the first trophy of the Palme d'Or was created using traceable metals in the service of the population and the environment.
Two years ago, we also marked the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Chopard boutique, boulevard de la Croisette. Those who visit the festival and throughout the year are offered the opportunity to soak up some glitz of the Riviera. They do this at the Festival's special editions and through themed windows that clarify the special relationship between the two institutions.
Cannes 2019, an edition of the Cannes Film Festival in the brilliant light of Chopard
A jeweler's name will definitely be retained this year! Chopard was the choice of many celebrities who went to the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival.
It is a company suise of luxury watchmaking, but also jewelery. It was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Then, the latter sold it to Karl Scheufele III, German watchmaker and jeweler.
Chopard was the jeweler responsible for designing and producing the Cannes Film Festival trophies. It is undoubtedly one of the most popular brands of jewelry and watches to appear on the red carpet.
Cannes under the distinctive sign of Chopard
As every year, the House painstakingly creates a series of impeccable masterpieces for Cannes. In the 2019 Red Carpet collection, Caroline Scheufele, co-chair and Artistic Director of the House, there is the idea of "LOVE".
Using its incredible creativity and the exceptional craftsmanship of the House, Chopard presents a collection of fine jewelry in 72 pieces. He made his first steps, at this Festival, with Julianne Moore, Araya Hargate, Elle Fanning, Liu Tao and Jessica Jung.
The earrings presented below have proven to be very popular. First Izabel Goulart, then Priyanka Chopra and finally Chinese actress Guan Xiaotong. One can only be fascinated by the blue intensity of these earrings.
The Burgundy lips of Amber Heard have been complemented by the intense diamond and ruby earrings of Chopard.
Cannes and Boucheron, another long and exciting story
Boucheron is a historic house that has its roots in the 19th century in Paris. She has also been involved for many years in the jewelery scene in Cannes.
At the festival, the Boucheron fine jewelry collection has always been a favorite. His glittering appearances on the red carpet showed that this stylish brand was one of the flagship brands.
Each year of the festival, Boucheron invites in a suite the ambassadors of famous brands and their stylists. They do it before glamorous evenings so that they can choose the perfect dazzling piece.
There is also the La Croisette shop. She is specialized in fine jewelery. In addition to selling the other ranges of the brand, this is the perfect place to visit to see the jewels.
The space has recently been renovated. It reopened last year, making it more appealing than ever. You may remember the iconic Serpent Bohème collection from last year (reinvented in 2018)? She was in red garnet and green malachite. It was a huge success since, in Cannes and elsewhere.

The jewels worn by the young starlets, while retaining the distinctive features of a colorful style, have been worn in a very modern way. The fancy necklaces were chosen.
