Spring has kept celebrities and socialites in full swing — and full regalia. Between the Costume Institute gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the film festival in Cannes and Cartier’s party for its Beverly Hills store, there has been no shortage of reasons to break out the good stuff. Diamonds, of course, got plenty of play, but bold-colored gems and stones crept into the spotlight, too. Big, long necklaces were a hit, as were showstopper earrings. The bottom line is that, bought or borrowed, fine jewelry is a red-carpet essential.
