Adele looked flawless in her black figure-hugging gown accessorised with gold statement Saturn earrings to match her planet tattoo – she was undoubtedly on theme for the venue of the night: the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

Adele gave the world a sneak peak of her highly-anticipated album, 30, on Sunday night (14 November) before its official release on 19 November 2021.

Her One Night Only CBS special marks her the end of her six-year hiatus, featuring a primetime televised performance of never-heard-before tracks from 30, and her previous hits.

The singer also sat down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss the inspiration of the album, which she revealed to be her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Viewers tuned in for her stage, but they couldn’t help but notice her matching planet tattoo and earrings; so who designed the glamourous jewellery?

What brand is Adele’s Saturn earrings?

Both her black mermaid dress and gold earrings are designed by Daniel Roseberry, the creative director of Italian fashion label Schiaparelli.

The exact price of the piece is unknown since they’re currently not for sale. Looking at the cost of other Schiaparelli earrings, we can expect them to be at least €1250 since they are made with gilded brass, pearls and rhinestones.

The 33-year-old also flaunted her Saturn tattoo with a drawing of LA in the centre on her left wrist as she passionately belted out her classics. In her Vogue feature she mentioned:

“I hit my Saturn return. It’s where I lost the plot. When that comes, it can rock you life. It shakes you up a bit: Who am I? What do I want to do? What makes me truly happy? All those things.”

For all you astrology lovers out there, your Saturn return is when the planet returns to the exact place it was when you were born. It occurs every 27 – 29.5 years, making it a major coming-of-age moment; it explains why Adele has so many questions regarding her future at the time.

None are as chunky as Schiaparelli’s, but they do have drop earrings with with pearl and rhinestone details.

Other notable Schiaparelli designs

The most recent look that comes to mind upon hearing Schiaparelli is Bella Hadid’s exquisite dress from Cannes Film Festival in July 2021.

The long black wool crepe dress from haute couture FW 2021/2022 was a showstopper thanks to the deep neckline embellished with a strategically-placed gilded brass necklace in the shape of human lungs.

Defined as ‘trompe l’oeil’ lungs by Roseberry, the term is French for ‘deceives the eye’, referring to the artistic technique of optical illusion to convince the audience that the two dimensional object is three dimensional.

The way the dress and necklace perfectly fit her body made it seem like it was custom-designed for the model; no wonder her look was one of the most memorable.
