From the Heart of the Ocean to the Mockingjay pin, movie jewelry has left lasting impressions on audiences all over the world. Let’s take a look at some of these dazzling performances.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s — Pearl and Diamond Necklace
Holly Golightly’s string of Pearls is one of the definitive pieces of classic movie jewelry. In Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn wears her jewels with elegance and poise, framed perfectly with a little black dress and a sweet, flaky Danish in hand. Featuring hundreds of Pearls and a stunning Diamond brooch, this iconic piece continues to win the hearts of jewelry lovers today.
Titanic — Heart of the Ocean Diamond
The blue Diamond draped around Rose’s neck has caused quite a lot of heartache. At the center of a spurned engagement, illicit romance and desperate passion, Titanic’s infamous heart-shaped jewel is exquisite in its craftsmanship and devastating in its consequences. Although the Heart of the Ocean returns to the sea in the end, the story surrounding it will never be forgotten.
Moulin Rouge! — Diamond Necklace
Moulin Rouge! gives a spectacular show, saturated with the decadence of romance, scandal and finery. Satine, a Diamond-coveting courtesan, must choose between her two loves: expensive, dazzling jewels and the man who has stolen her heart. This cascading string of Diamonds is one of the most expensive pieces of jewelry made for the screen, ringing in at more than one million dollars.
The Lord of the Rings — One Ring
This ring’s unfortunate bearers have had quite a heavy burden to carry. Translated from the Black Speech of Mordor, the ring’s inscription reads, “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.” Spellbindingly beautiful and shrouded in dark magic, the One Ring is one piece of jewelry that should never be worn.
Harry Potter — Time-Turner Necklace
Hermione’s necklace is more than just a pretty trinket. In order to manage her impossible class schedule, she uses the Time-Turner to be everywhere at once. Featuring a spinning Hour-Reversal Charm, this magical necklace mesmerizes with its beauty and power. In the wrong hands, this timepiece could have disastrous consequences, but the Harry Potter trio navigates the dangers of time travel with great success.
The Hunger Games — Mockingjay Pin
The value of a piece of jewelry isn’t always determined by the rarity of its gems or the luster of its plating. Katniss’s Mockingjay pin in The Hunger Games is a humble, yet powerful emblem, acting as a symbol of rebellion, freedom and hope that inspires people from every district in Panem. This pin may not be the most dazzling piece of jewelry on this list, but it certainly conveys one of the most powerful messages.
The Great Gatsby — Tiffany Movie Jewelry
The actors and sets in The Great Gatsby are heavily decorated with Tiffany & Co. accoutrements, glittering with wealth in every romantic scene and party montage. Daisy lounges around her luxurious East Egg home, exhibiting the fruits of old money on her hands and arms. Jewelry becomes more than an accessory in this story; it becomes an identity.
Every piece of movie jewelry reveals something crucial about the character it adorns, whether it enhances their beauty, leads them astray or gives structure to their dreams. The rings, bracelets and necklaces featured here are beautiful examples of movie magic come to life. Browse the Limogés Jewelry collection to recreate your favorite silver-screen pieces.
