Part two of my Great Gatsby inspired posts is all about the jewels! You would be hard pressed not to notice the HUGE sparklers in each scene, most notably any scene with Carey Mulligan or Elizabeth Debicki.
However, it wasn’t just the ladies dripping with diamonds and pearls, the men were also decked out with remarkable cufflinks and rings. Who could provide such stunning jewellery I hear you ask? Why, Tiffany’s of course!
The iconic jewellery house, of which F. Scott Fitzgerald was a customer, worked together with the film’s designers to create each bespoke piece. Some of the pieces used in the film were part of Tiffany’s original 1920’s collection and the rest inspired by the original collection.
The most remarkable piece from the film is Daisy’s headpiece come tiara, which she wears to Gatsby’s party. According to Tiffany’s website this stunning headpiece will set you back a mere €200,000.
The Jazz Age Glamour Collection showcases some of the pieces featured in the film like this beautiful ring and bracelet pearl combo that Daisy wears along with the headpiece.
Not to be outdone, Jay Gatsby’s cufflinks, all custom-made for the film, contained the initials J.G.
Gatsby’s signature ring contained the same initials however it was surround by a daisy motif. All together now, “Awwwhhh!”
The headpiece Daisy wears to lunch is simple and elegant, accentuating her iconic 1920’s bob.
Sadly, I couldn’t find an image of the original ring worn by Daisy in the film but Tiffany’s have created a Daisy ring inspired by the film.
The pearls featured in the film varied from single and drop pearl earrings, to rows of perfect pearls necklaces.
