Throughout Hollywood history, costume design has been one of the most important aspects when it comes to producing a beautiful movie. And, jewellery is a huge part of that! Bridging the best of both worlds, here is our curated list of iconic movies featuring the most opulent and extravagant jewellery pieces in cinema history.
Moulin Rouge (2001)
We’re starting this list off strong with a classic! Set in 19th-century Paris, the musical romance Moulin Rouge is filled is good music, better sets, and the best costumes! Nicole Kidman’s character wears a gorgeous Belle Epoque festoon necklace with over 1,300 diamonds. Talk about impressive!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
Pastry in one hand, coffee cup in the other, Hepburn stands in front of a shop window in her little black dress and statement Tiffany pearl necklace. That’s how the legendary image of Audrey Hepburn was born.
The Great Gatsby (2013)
This adaptation of Fitzgerald’s classic novel depicts 1920s high society. Besides the flapper dresses, Daisy (played by Carey Mulligan) sports all kinds of shiny pearls and diamonds. Everything is one-of-a-kind!
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
This is where Marilyn Monroe's iconic quote "diamonds are a girl's best friend" comes from! In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, jewellery is its own character, transporting us to a world of vanity where wealth and opulence reign supreme.
Marie Antoinette (2006)
Sofia Coppola’s dreamy pastel-filled period film, Marie Antoinette, is a sincere work of art. Featuring gorgeous regal gowns and opulent diamonds, this film spared no expense in the costume department and it pays off!
