Met Gala celebs in collar necklaces

The red carpet was rolled out and the diamonds were dazzling for this year’s Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday 5 May in New York.  The Met Ball is one of the most exclusive social events in New York and one of the city’s biggest fundraising nights.   With wall-to-wall celebrities and a white tie dress code, the glamour stakes were high.  And we certainly weren’t disappointed.

At Glitzy Secrets we love to check out the jewellery and hair accessories.  A key trend this year has been dazzling statement collar necklaces.  We take a look below at some of our favourite designs and show you how you can steal the style with our own sparkling designs.
