Emma Chamberlain’s Met Gala look may have impressed fashion police, but Twitter is upset that the influencer wore a piece of jewellery that was most likely stolen by British colonisers. Emma, who was recently appointed as Cartier’s newest ambassador, wore the Maharaja of Patiala's diamond choker to the Met Gala this year. The necklace belonged to Maharaja of Patiala Bhupinder Singh and was created by Cartier in 1928. It reportedly featured 2,930 diamonds, including the world's seventh-largest diamond, at the time.
Legend suggests that the necklace mysteriously disappeared after the Maharaja’s son Yadavindra Singh last wore it in 1948. It reappeared a few years ago in London. Many believe that the necklace was stolen, although there is not enough evidence to substantiate this claim. Nevertheless, Twitterati is upset that Emma would wear a heritage number that was most likely colonised. “This is wayyy worse than kim wearing marilyn monroe’s dress. It has a deep and painful history attached to it. Very on theme, nothing screams gilded glamour quite like expropriation,” one Twitter user wrote.
