The 2019 MET Gala Jewelry Trends: Our Official Style Report

2019 MET Gala Jewelry Trends Blog Header

The 2019 MET Gala was a major success. The invite-only affair is held annually at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief, coordinates the event while this year’s co-chairs were Harry Styles, Serena Williams, Lady Gaga, and Alessandro Michele.

Camp: Notes on Fashion

The theme this year was Camp: Notes on Fashion. It embraced—

  • Extravagance
  • Out-of-the-box fashion
  • Being extraordinary
  • Over-the-top flamboyance
  • Excess
  • Exaggeration 

Luckily for us, this gave way for a stunning run on the red carpet. Not only did the A-listers wear incredible jewelry, but most had jewels fused right into their ensembles (see Bella Hadid).


Here’s a recap of our favorite 2019 MET Gala jewelry trends and how they can translate into sales.

In line with the more-is-more theme, Harry Styles wore a handful of rings . . . literally. He also donned a single pearl drop earring by Gucci. His look exuded individuality. And with Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to push personalized signet rings.
