After its first edition in 1946, The Cannes Film Festival started becoming synonymous with glitz, celebrity sightings, shocking moments and the world’s most bedazzling jewellery. While Awards Season also offers us a fair share of mindboggling precious stones, the great thing about Cannes is that we’re treated to a mesmerising variety of white or multi-coloured sparklers for 12 blissful days in a row.
