If you are a Great Gatsby fan and can’t wait for the film to come out in May, you may have already seen the trailer. The below clip gives you a sneak peek as well as explaining the design and inspiration of the jewellery.
How great does it look? But, most importantly, how amazing are those jewels? Makes me want to go back into the 1920’s, even if it’s just to wear a jewelled headband!
Yes, this baby. I could definitely walk around London with it on right? And for only $200 000.00 I could buy two.. Pffft.
As heard in the clip above, Jewellers Tiffany & Co. collaborated with the Great Gatsby costume designer, Catherine Martin, to create a twenties inspired collection called Ziegfeld.
“The jewelry we created for this momentous production of [F. Scott] Fitzgerald’s famous novel and our designs for the Ziegfeld Collection reveal the style of the period and Tiffany as its premier jeweler,” said John King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “Tiffany was certainly part of this era. The brand was at the center of the parties of the rich and famous.”
Enough about that, let’s see the pieces!
This hairclip is my best and probably costs a pretty penny. But how gorgeous to add sparkle to an outfit?
This heart locket necklace on a ribbon is another one of my favourites. The level of detail in the heart makes it a piece I want in my jewellery box. $800 for the locket.
One of the many rings that Carey Mullingan wears in the film. The black Onyx is offset by the pearls beautifully and is $475.
What would the 1920’s be without strings of pearls? I like hoe they have made these unique by using different sizes of pearls and regular intervals so that the simple beauty of the pearls don’t get lost in one solid string. $1000.
Luckily I’m not on that set. I would pull a Lindsay Lohan with this ring let me tell you. It’s a Praseolite ring and will set you back $975.
And there you have it! Now you can wear all these jewels, dress to the part, find a hunky man with lots of money and you could look like the below!
Oh, and dye your hair blonde but that’s a minor sacrifice to look this gorgeous.. [Source: here]
