Both in black dresses and both wearing Chopard, but who wore it better?
Karolina Kurkova was the first to wear this dazzling amethyst, tanzanite and diamond necklace from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie collection. The model accessorized her look with a diamond necklace and a knock out pear- shaped amethyst cocktail ring- both by Chopard. She paired the jewels with a black strapless dress from ASHI Studio at the premiere of ‘Based on a True Story’ at the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 27, 2017.
Rihanna, in Ralph & Russo couture, wore the same necklace four months later at her 3rd Annual Diamond Ball benefiting the Clara Lionel Foundation in NYC on September 14, 2017. She also paired the stunning necklace with a diamond one, like Karolina did, and stacked on several Chopard diamond bracelets and rings.
My vote: Tie. Both wore chic black strapless gowns to showcase the jewels. Both paired the necklace with an equally stunning diamond one by Chopard. We do love how Karolina wore a matching amethyst ring with her ensemble and we loved how Rihanna stayed true to her style and went for her signature diamond ring and bracelet stacks.

Up for two awards tomorrow night, Favorite Female Artist Pop/Rock and for Soul/R&B, we’re looking back at one of our favorite AMA red carpet jewelry moments from Rihanna.
Here the singer and actress was the recipient of the Icon Award at the AMAs in November 2013. She adorned her arm with a Berbere arm cuff from Repossi and stacked white gold diamond ear cuffs from Alexa Mika. The unique black diamond cone with pearl earring is by Pristine Jewels.
Let’s not forget her rings. Rihanna by far, has one of the best ring games on the red carpet! Rings from Nikos Koulis and Lynn Ban’s diamond coil ring and black diamond crown ring embellished her fingers.
The stand out piece of the ensemble? The Neil Lane platinum and diamond choker. We can’t wait to see what she brings to the red carpet for tomorrow night’s AMAs!
