Baz Luhrmann’s much-anticipated release of The Great Gatsby (in theaters May 10) has fans across the globe swooning over Jazz Age jewels.
The jewelry worn in the film is based on designs from the Tiffany & Co. archives.
The style of Daisy Buchanan, played by Carey Mulligan, represents the glitz, glamour, and rebellion of the Roaring Twenties. Throughout the film she wears tassel necklaces and jewels with conch pearls. At lavish parties her blonde bob is accessorized with the Savoy, a headdress of diamonds and cultured pearls, and her hands are adorned with a daisy ornament and diamond rings with the Tiffany setting.
“This exuberant, very decorative style [of the 1920’s] constantly comes back as a key point to designers,” Catherine Martin, costume designer of The Great Gatsby, said in an interview you can view below.
The leading lady isn’t the only one with dazzling accessories. Jay Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, accessories his custom Brooks Brothers shirts with 18k gold oval cuff links. A sterling silver flask fits in the pockets of his tailored linen suits and tuxedo.
“The jewelry symbolizes the story’s themes of wealth and privilege, and we approached its design with the utmost style and luxury in mind,” Jon King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co., said in a statement.
