Films have a big influence on our lives. How often do we hear people saying “I want or like that ring from that movie”? We hear it perhaps way too often. This list is for such jewelry enthusiasts who recognize their preferred pieces from the movies they watch. If you have not seen these films, be warned there are spoilers ahead.
“Heart of the Ocean” from “Titanic”
Talk about jewelry and movies, who could forget the blue gemstone pendant from “Titanic”. Dubbed as “Heart of the Ocean”, this pendant made the blue diamond famous, although in “Titanic”, it is cubic zirconium. It is a film prop, an alluring replica of the real diamond.
In actual, the diamond named “Heart of the Ocean” was part of the crown jewels of King Louis XVI. The replica in the film was made with a blue colored cubic zirconium set in white gold. The pendant forms a part of the narrative in James Cameron’s epic film. Who could forget that classic scene where Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Jack” draws the picture of Kate Winslet’s “Rose”, wearing the pendant.
“Black Diamond Ring” from “Sex and the City 2”
The engagement ring Carrie Bradshaw receives from Mr. Big in the sequel to “Sex and the City” is a famous movie ring. Unlike the color of the Titanic pendant, it is the carat size of the diamond that made this one popular. You would see every other jeweler advertising a similar-styled piece as that five carat diamond ring from “Sex and the City 2”. As Mr. Big gives it to his lover, he says he is doing so, “Because you are not like anyone else”.
Emerald Ring from “Crazy Rich Asians”
Former James Bond girl, Michelle Yeoh plays an antagonist role in this film featuring an ethnically diverse cast. Her green engagement ring is as famous her character, Eleanor Young. Maybe that is why Yeoh wore the green stone ring to the Golden Globes, pairing it with a matching outfit. In the film, Eleanor gives this heirloom piece to her son Nick so that he proposes to his girlfriend Rachel.
The Necklace from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
This pearl and diamond necklace of Audrey Hepburn was an iconic piece, featured in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Paired with Audrey Hepburn’s black outfit and white gloves, this diamond and pearl piece was the right accessory for her character, Holly Golightly.
Celebrity jewelry from the Golden Age of Hollywood seems to resonate to even today’s audience. Occasionally, you read the news of someone buying a Hollywood celeb’s jewel at an auction for an exorbitant price.
