Jennifer Lopez was dripping in sparkles at the 2019 Met Gala.

If her plunging Versace gown complete with a thigh-high slit, iridescent platform heels, silver clutch, and shimmering headdress weren’t enough, the actor was wearing no less than $US8.8 million worth of Harry Winston jewellery, a spokesperson for the designer told INSIDER.

The metaphorical jewel in J. Lo’s crown was without a doubt her necklace: Harry Winston’s “Purple Dragon Necklace,” which weighs in at a whopping 129.48 carats.

Made up of a 65.32 carat cushion-cut purple sapphire, set in a cluster of round brilliant, pear- and marquise-shaped diamonds, and set on a diamond necklace in platinum, the colour was matched to J. Lo’s eye makeup.
