Not only famous actors shine in iconic films, but also jewelry. Many of them subsequently set trends and become the subject of copies and imitations. These are unique pieces, the production of which requires the highest level of craftsmanship.
"Titanic": The blue necklace with diamond
One of the most famous pieces of jewelry that ever appeared in a movie is the "Heart of the Ocean" necklace. It owes its fame not only to the success of the film Titanic, but also to the rarity of the heart-shaped gemstone. Blue diamonds of this size can be counted on your fingers.
The film "Titanic" starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet was released in 1997. At that time there was little interest in diamonds, and colored diamonds in particular. Fashion historians and researchers attribute the resurgence of this interest primarily to the success of the film.
Legend has it that a large blue cubic zirconia was used for the film. The creators of the jewelry were inspired by a real Hope diamond, or Diamond of Hope. The original 45.52-carat diamond is now valued at $ 350 million.
After the commercial success of "Titanic" there were many copies of the famous necklace.
"Breakfast at Tiffany's": pearl and diamond necklace
Breakfast at Tiffany's was published in 1961. The main character's outfit, hairstyle and life principles became legendary. Equally noteworthy are the pearl and diamond necklaces and other jewelry and accessories by Holly Golightly.
To make the jewelry, 100-200 pearls were used, which are arranged in strands in 4 rows. In the middle was a large brooch with diamonds, which set an additional accent in the cleavage area. This necklace still looks very luxurious and glamorous even today.
Pearls are back in fashion. However, the pearls can be of different quality and price: a river pearl, pearls from the South Seas or a fake pearl can be used for the necklace. The current owner of the jewelry is unknown, but it is believed that if it were put up for auction, it would sell for no less than $ 100,000.
