A final flourish of red carpet jewels from the last weekend in Cannes

It was a rousing final weekend in Cannes as the Palme d'Or was awarded and the stars took the red carpet for the last time to show off their high jewellery.

Nicole Kidman wore Belle earrings and two ruby and diamond bracelets by Harry Winston at the closing ceremony for the 66th Cannes Film Festival in 2013

With the prestigious Palme d'Or awarded to the controversial film 'Blue is the Warmest Colour' and the Coen Brothers scooping second place with 'Inside Llewyn Davis', the 66th Cannes Film Festival drew to a close yesterday with a final flourish of high fashion and high jewels on the red carpet.

Olivia Palermo, famous for her street-smart NYC style, proved that her alternative take on fashion translates perfectly to the red carpet in a wonderful gold sequin gown by Roberto Cavalli, accessorised with a beaded jacket, frothy feather clutch, impressive Avakian yellow diamond jewels and the dashing Johannes Huebl on her arm.

Star of 'Blue is the Warmest Colour' Lea Seydoux went for a neat chic look for the Cannes closing ceremony in a monochrome two-piece and pretty diamond teardrop Chopard earrings, while Uma Thurman piled on the Chopard jewels - diamond chandelier earrings and wrists full of sparkling bracelets - before stepping out in a shimmering Atelier Versace gown with a flowing train, causing paparazzi meltdown.

It was Nicole Kidman - one of the jury at this year's festival - who emerged as queen of the red carpet on the final day though. Dressed in plunging, figure-skimming Giorgio Armani, decorated with sparkling Swarovski crystals, she looked every inch Cannes royalty with her hair swept back to reveal delicate diamond Belle earrings by Harry Winston.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
