Hollywood heavyweights dazzled in jaw-dropping diamond jewels at the AmFar Cinema Against Aids gala ball.

Salma Hayek and Goldie Hawn

Statement necklaces, earrings and gem-encrusted brooches reigned supreme as the celebrities glammed it up in Dubai.Jaw-dropping diamond jewelry fashion was the belle of the ball at the 2nd Annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Dubai Gala this month. The event took place at the new
Atlantis, The Palm Hotel, which recently opened with an extravagant party rumored to be the most expensive bash the world has ever seen.

It’s no surprise, then, that the celebrities on hand to raise money for AIDS research didn’t feel shy about bringing out the big guns in the bling department. It also didn’t hurt that diamond powerhouse,
Cartier, was one of the largest sponsors for the worthy event.

The always-gorgeous Salma Hayek stunned the crowd with both her auctioning skills and a stunning Boucheron statement necklace with a diamond rosette. And fellow auctioneer, Goldie Hawn, always lights up a room, but her lobster-bib sized diamond necklace with gemstone accents took things to an entirely new level.

Jeffrey Wright, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte and directors, Oliver Stone and Terry Gilliam, helped the diamond-clad event chairs raise $1.8m for amfAR, auctioning off items that included a stint on the Hayek-produced show Ugly Betty and a one-of-a-kind Cartier diamond cuff with Hayek’s signature.

Salma and Goldie – can they do no wrong? They can act, they can produce, they can auction, they have excellent taste in jewelry – they’re a veritable diamond-clad Thelma and Louise.

Without the ‘driving off a cliff to their doom’ incident…

Select from these dazzling diamond duo styles on and shimmer your way through the holiday season.
