Priyanka Chopra wears one of world’s ‘rarest’ gemstones in ‘$25m’ Met Gala necklace
Priyanka Chopra dazzled at this year’s Met Gala, modeling a black strapless Valentino gown with a tufted cape attached to her white opera gloves. However, what caught the eye of the fashion industry was her Bulgari necklace, featuring the Laguna Blu diamond, one of the rarest gems on the planet. So rare, in fact, that Sotheby’s is set to auction off a larger, 11-carat Fancy Vivid gem later this month, appraised at over $25 million.
The Indian actress, singer, and film producer was joined at the Met Gala by her husband, singer Nick Jonas, who looked dapper in a leather blazer and black trousers. The couple has been open about their struggles with parenting while juggling separate tours around the world. They announced the birth of their daughter, Malti Marie, last year, through a surrogate, which sparked unexpected backlash. However, it was soon revealed that Malti was born 12 weeks premature and spent the first 110 days of her life in the NICU.
As her daughter approaches her first birthday, Priyanka revealed in a digital cover interview with Elle that Malti’s time in the NICU was a rollercoaster and had a significant influence on her parents as they were “so close to losing her so many times.” Priyanka spoke of her difficulties maintaining discipline as Malti headed towards the terrible twos, saying, “I don’t even know how I’ll ever discipline her because I just don’t have it in me. Every time she smiles, it lights up my world, and that’s all I want to do.”
Priyanka Chopra’s appearance at the Met Gala and her rare necklace has received widespread attention in the fashion world. Still, it is her honest and heartfelt account of motherhood that has endeared her to fans worldwide. As a successful actress and mother, Priyanka is a role model to many, showing that it is possible to balance a career and family life.
