Diamonds have long been considered the pinnacle when it comes to natural stones, so it is not surprising that unique and luxurious diamond jewelry featured in films can become iconic. Over the years, diamonds in movies have captivated audiences, and some movies are specifically remembered in part due to the beautiful jewelry featured. Some of these movies include:
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Most people recognize the phrase “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, words made famous by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Monroe wore dazzling diamond jewelry in the film, from diamond earrings to diamond necklaces. The allure of the diamonds and Monroe’s performance increased her star power.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a classic film that is rich in fashion and beautiful jewelry. In fact, when people think of Audrey Hepburn today, many people recall the scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s where she is wearing a little black dress and a fabulous diamond and pearl necklace.
Titanic set a number of box-office records, and an amazing piece of jewelry played a role in the story line. In the movie, the Le Coeur de la Mer (the Heart of the Ocean) was a large blue diamond necklace that was said to have been commissioned by Louis XVI. While the story was made up specifically for the movie, audiences were enthralled by the mysterious blue diamond, and many replicas made of less expensive stones were bought by the public.
Twilight Saga: Eclipse
The younger generation went wild for the Twilight Saga, a series of films based on the books about the romance between a young woman and a vampire. The movie Twilight Saga: Eclipse has a plot that includes the two main characters getting engaged. The diamond engagement ring features an oval base with a thin gold band. The base of the ring was covered in slanted rows of small round diamonds. Many low-cost replicas of the diamond ring from the movie were purchased by young fans.
