I don’t know about you but I am so excited about the release of Baz Luhrmans much anticiapted The Great Gatsby!
As if I wasn’t already, it has me seriously swooning over all things Jazz Age and Art Deco. And just when I thought I couldn’t be any more excited about this film, I read about its creators collaboration with the jeweller that epitomises the sumptuous fashion and exuberant spirit of the ‘roaring’ 192s0, Tiffany & Co!! Apparently much of the inspiration for the film’s stunning designs came straight from the Tiffany archives…….
The Art Deco era witnessed an absolute frenzy for all things Tiffany. The store because the arbeiter of style and taste after the store started advertising in Vogue magazine. Tiffany’s brilliant diamonds and lustrous pearls adorned Hollywood’s leading ladies and became the screen darlings of the Jazz age – nothing burned brighter in black and white! And Tiffany’s latest collection for the film itself, a collaboration with costume designer Catherine Martin, has certainly created some heirlooms for the future. Take a seat and cast your eye over these sparklers!…..
The Daisy Hand Ornament is an exquisite piece of fresh water pearls and brilliant round diamonds. Created to move gracefully with every gesture, with the daisy motif of diamonds in platinum accented with pearls beautifully reimagining Jazz Age fashion.
The Daisy brooch is a dazzling diamond set platinum piece with a Tiffany Yellow Diamond, which radiates a clear, constant light, at its centre.
Evoking timeless elegance and romance, this platinum bracelet of 5large round brilliant diamonds surrounded by lustrous seed pearls and sparkling diamonds form a beautifully intricate design reminiscent of chinoiserie.
And my absolute favourite piece, the Savoy Headpiece, seen here word by Daisy (the beautiful Carey Mulligan)…..
This magnificent headpiece of freshwater pearls, and round brilliant diamonds (of over 25 carats!!) absolutely brings Daisy Buchanan to life.
Of course no Flapper girl would feel complete without some chandalier earrings, distinguished by their sleek geometry.
I adore this ring, pairing black onyx with bezel-set diamonds, bubbles in a champagne glass, creates such a statement piece……
And of course the perfect Art Deco accessory, the Tassel necklace. This one created of lengths of lustrous pearls accented with diamonds set in platinum – perfect for swirling!
If diamonds and pearls aren’t for you though how about this beautiful sapphire which set in an Art Deco style ring of diamonds is a celebration of chic.
Well that’s my Christmas list done
From what I have seen the jewels sizzle on screen as much as the stars they adorn….. I can not wait to see this film!
How about you? Has anyone seen it yet?? Tell me all!!
