Since I am a jewelry maker I always recognize nice pieces in movies. Some of them have their own backstories, some of them have memorable and symbolic role in films. Once I recognized one of favourite designers, Dori Csengeri’s earrings in Sex and New York on Cynhtia Nixon. Here are the most known jewels:

PRETTY WOMAN

Do you remember the scene when Richard Gere pulls out the black necklace box, opens it and then scares Julia by slamming it shut? The scene was actually a prank by Gere and the production staff, but Roberts’ laughter was so genuine and the scene so adorable that the director decided kept it in the film.

Julia Roberts’ necklace was custom designed for the film by French jeweler Fred Joaillier and is worth an estimated $1.35 million. The necklace boasts 23 beautiful pear-cut rubiesin the center of diamond hearts. An armed security guard from the jewelry store stood by director Gary Marshall throughout the shooting of the scenes where it was worn.

MOULIN ROUGE

Another expensive, but unique piece appeared in Loulin Rouge ony Nichole Kidman. This stunning diamond necklace, made of 1,308 diamonds, was designed by Australian jeweler Stefano Cantur. Made of real platinum and diamond, weighed 134 carats and had more than a thousand diamonds. An interesting fact report by the BBC, The Satine Necklace had been put up for sale at Christie’s in New York by Australian jeweler Stafano Canturi. Hours before the auction Mr. Canturi told a Christie’s employee that he loved the necklace and could not part with it.

HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS

Kate Hudson’s stunning yellow diamond Isadora necklace was designed for her to wear in this movie and is worth about 5 million dollars. It is the most expensive piece of jewelry ever created for a movie. Harry Winston created the beautiful diamond wreath necklace for Hudson’s character. The necklace was so dazzling that the movie’s costume designers designed Hudson’s yellow gala dress to match the sparkling yellow pendant. In addition to the 84 carat Isadora necklace, an estimated $14 million worth of jewelry was lent for the film.

TITANIC

Heart of the Ocean worn by actress Kate Winslet in the blockbuster hit movie “Titanic,” the Heart of the Ocean is probably the most iconic piece of jewelry in movie history. In the film, the diamond was said to have originally belonged to King Louis XVI, and it was later shaped into a heart after the French Revolution. The hefty pendant used on the set of “Titanic” is not an actual blue diamond; instead, three props were made from blue cubic zirconias in white gold. Later the creators, Apsrey &Garrard, a United Kingdom based desginer, created the orginal piece after the movie hit success. The result was an exclsuive and $4 million necklace of 170-carat Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 103 diamonds.

ONE RING

A „simple” gold ring yet is impervious to destruction. A powerful ring appears in both „The Lord of the Rings” fantasy series and J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel, ’The Hobbit”. Fifteen reproductions were made in different sizes and weights after the orginal piece was made.

Audry Hepburn wearing a cute Givenchy dress could not be perfect without a classical pearl-and-diamond necklace, that became the trend at that time (it is trendy again according to 2018 fashion news!.) The necklace is from Tiffany & Co. and the piece is still inspire many jewelers to this day.

GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES

Probably I should have started with it, but never mind, this is still an amazing film with an iconic, timeless actress. Marilyn is wearing a 24,04 carat Moon of Baroda diamonda s the centerpice of a luxury necklace. Int he old times the pear-shaped diamond appeared ont he neck of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, and was even worn y Marie Antoinette.

What Marily said in this movie is till one of my favourite sentence from movies: “diamond’s are a girl’s best friend.” Even my 12 year old daughter knows this…
