Making up for the last two years that were devoured by the global pandemic, the MET Gala left no stone unturned to serve us a dose of glamour as well as some spicy controversies! Seems like Kim Kardashian wasn’t the only celebrity to have worn something that came with a historical significance. Stepping on the shoes of the beauty moghul was influencer Emma Chamberlain who ascended the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art stirring some controversy!

Emma, who arrived at The MET wearing Louis Vuitton, also represented Cartier as its ambassador and stepped on the red carpet of the soiree dripping in diamonds from the jewellery brand. While her pleated beige crop top and trailing skirt were stunning already, it was her encrusted piece of choker that grabbed everyone’s eyeballs at the gala. Turns out, sticking to the vintage theme, the social media sensation wore Cartier’s diamond choker that once belonged to the Maharaja of Patiala, Bhupinder Singh!

Diving deep into the history of this antique piece of jewel, this ceremonial accessory came into being in 1928 when the Maharaja decided to turn the De Beers diamond, the 7th largest in the world into an heirloom choker. It was then commissioned to Cartier to curate it with 2930 diamonds and Burmese rubies sitting on it with pride, making it one of the most expensive pieces of jewellery made in history.

With this piece holding a high sentimental and historic value, netizens expressed displeasure with the fact that it was given to a celebrity to flaunt. Many went on saying that ‘this was worse than Kim wearing Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress’ Check out the tweets below:
