K-Pop idol IU has always gained attention for her dazzling visuals and ability to make everything she wears look absolutely stunning, whether it is a designer piece or affordable clothing that anyone can wear.
Yet, when it came to making her 2022 Cannes Film Festival, IU looked nothing but expensive as she made her way down the red carpet and was praised for her impeccable treatment of the fans waiting.
Well, it seems as if IU’s visuals weren’t the only thing that was certified iconic. As expected, IU looked absolutely beautiful from the minute she stepped onto the red carpet and has been praised for the outfit in many ways.
Firstly, while IU is known as a Gucci brand ambassador, the idol chose to stay closer to home with her fashion choice. The idol wore the ‘Provocation of New Colors’ Collection Gown in grey-green by Korean designer, Choi Jae Hoon.
Yet, it was the jewelry IU wore that really captured the attention of fans in both Korea and worldwide. With such a beautiful and ethereal dress, IU chose to remain sophisticated and minimalistic with her jewelry, wearing what seemed like a simple necklace and diamond earrings.
Although it seemed simple, it was far from the case and the price tag of the pieces is enough to send anyone into a meltdown. The pieces were created by the French jewelry brand, Joséphine Aigrette, according to the media.
The necklace’s price retails at $88,862.00 USD, and the details showcase why the piece’s price is so high. It is made of 18K white gold and has about 180 diamonds embedded in it, and the center diamond stone is said to be 1.50 to 1.70 carats.
If that wasn’t enough, the earrings might not have been as expensive but were equally as glamorous. The CHAUMET Joséphine Duo Éternel earrings retail at €22,080.00, which is around $23,000 USD. The details are just as intricate with an elegant design in white gold, set with brilliant-cut diamonds.
When the prices of the pieces were revealed, netizens couldn’t believe just how expensive they were. Although they were most likely rented for the event, it showcased IU’s worth as she complimented the gorgeous pieces perfectly with her visuals and sophistication.
The pieces of jewelry were expensive, there is no denying that it’s IU’s visuals that completed the look because of her elegance, style, and grace. You can read more about IU making her presence known at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival below.
