The Venice Film Festival, the oldest and most prestigious festival of cinema in the world, has been a noticeably quieter affair this year, coinciding with strikes called by the Screen Actors Guild Federation and the Writers Guild of America. Still, the typically celeb-filled event has not been entirely without its headline-making jewellery moments.

Here, we showcase the best jewellery from the 2023 Venice Film Festival so far, from Carla Bruni to Regé-Jean Page.
