The Weeknd Had Some of the Best Jewelry at the Met Gala
The artist was one of the best blinged at Monday's event with a museum-worthy Cartier diamond brooch and other pieces by the French jeweler
As one half of the evening's best-dressed couple at the Met Gala, The Weeknd also held his own Monday night, sartorially speaking. The singer (née Abel Tesfaye) looked incredibly dapper in his classic black satin shawl-collar tuxedo, custom made for him by Valentino and complete with a silk bow tie and patent leather tuxedo shoes. But a closer look at the singer's accessories, courtesy of Cartier, reveals that he may have had some of the best jewelry of the night.
On his lapel, Tesfaye sported a diamond and yellow sapphire pin from the Cartier Collection, a group of jewels that the Paris jewelry maison reserves only for red carpet appearances and museum exhibitions. The flower clip brooch—originally designed for a woman—was made at Cartier's Paris workshops in 1962 as a special order piece and features a 12.49-carat octagonal emerald cut yellow sapphire in the center. The singer paired the brooch with a vintage diamond stud set, also from Cartier, that dates back to 1925 and a diamond, ceramic and gold Maillon Panthère ring from the French brand.
