Netizens criticize Emma Chamberlain for wearing Maharaja of Patiala’s choker to Met Gala 2022

New Delhi, May 10

YouTuber Emma Chamberlain, who reportedly wore Maharaja of Patiala’s diamond choker to the 2022 Met Gala, has faced harsh criticism from netizens.

At this year’s Met Gala red carpet several celebs were seen wearing some iconic pieces of clothing or accessories important in history staying true to the ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’ theme. Cartier Jewel’s latest brand ambassador, YouTuber Emma Chamberlain, shook her head at the 2022 Met Gala wearing a Cartier choker and headband.

She wore a Louis Vuitton dress for the occasion and donned bejewelled diamond pieces including a tiara and apparently the iconic Maharaja of Patiala’s choker as well.

In 1928, Patiala’s Maharaja decided to turn the world’s seventh-largest diamond, the De Beers diamond, into a necklace. He hired Cartier to make a necklace. The necklace mysteriously disappeared after his son Maharaja Yadavindra Singh last wore it in 1948. It was known as the famous Patiala necklace. It reappeared in London and disappeared for some time before being “buy-back” by Cartier. However, at some point, the claim that the choker was “stolen” has not been substantiated. When Emma Chamberlain’s Met Gala photos were distributed online, netizens said that Chamberlain wearing such an important jewel was even ruder than Kim Kardashian in Marilyn Monroe’s dress.
