The sighting: Actress Diane Kruger recently attended a Diwali celebration in a draped red gown and wonderfully dramatic statement earrings. Let’s take a look!

The jewels: Kruger is wearing a gorgeous pair of peacock earrings by Chopard. (Scroll to the second photo in the Instagram slideshow for a better look). The actress also appears to be wearing a simple diamond tennis necklace and several statement rings that look like sapphires or amethysts with diamonds.

The earrings are the undisputed star of the show here. Instagrammer @Wwwjewels identified these birdie beauties as being from Chopard’s 150th Anniversary Animal World Collection.

You can get a closer look at these precious peacock here, in the Sotheby’s listing from when this design was sold at the auction house in 2020. According to Sotheby’s, the earrings are “set with cabochon amethysts and sapphires, enhanced throughout with circular-cut sapphires and garnets, highlighted with diamond briolettes of yellow tint and cabochon orange sapphires, terminating on an emerald bead.”

The trends: Statement earrings and statement rings are the red carpet trends of the moment. Kruger went outside the box a little by wearing an necklace, but it’s so understated compared to the rest of the jewelry that it hardly counts.

I also saw a whole lot of animal-inspired colored gemstone jewelry at the AGTA Spectrum 2023 Editor’s Preview last month, so we may have another trend growing for fantastic colored gem fauna.

What do we think? This is so fun and perfect for a Diwali event! It’s exuberant, colorful, and joyful. I do wish that Diane Kruger had taken more photos with her ears facing the camera, but I guess she thought the paparazzi wanted to see her face.

Judgement: 12/10 for magnificent earrings that I wish I could see better.

Why This Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

Mark Lauer is the owner of Mark Michael Diamond Designs, the Minnesota-based jewelry gallery known for exceptional and uniquely designed diamond jewelry. Though he loved creating the beautiful jewelry his business was known for, retirement was an exciting alternative to the 60+ hours a week he’d spent building it up. He called Wilkerson to help with a retirement sale. “I did talk to two other companies, but I just didn’t feel they offered the same services that Wilkerson did,” he says. “I knew Wilkerson had the expertise to follow through and give me the service and results that I wanted. They’re the number one rock stars in this industry.”
