Iconic Jewellery Pieces from Unforgettable Movies!!

While I absolutely love to party around town and hang out with my girlfriends, there are days when all I really want to do is stay at home in my pyjamas and watch a good movie. I’m a self professed movie-buff and have my own parameters for judging a movie. A brilliant story line and great cast is important but the costumes, the styling and the jewellery play such a crucial part in making a movie truly memorable. Being a jewellery-junkie that I am, I love it when a piece of jewellery stands out and becomes iconic for years to come. Click here for my favourites.

Hi Tara. i've been following your blogs and enjoying them but the last two posts disappointed me. The themes are so good but the three iconic moments .. we all know jodha akbar and titanic .. how about giving us three great jewellery pieces YOU discovered in films? I'm sorry if I sound dominating but I do like your blog and thought of giving a suggestion!

Nothing can beat Rajmata Gayatri Devi's jewellery collection. It is not cinematic but surely iconic!!!!

The photograph of the five strand pearl necklace cannot be seen clearly and that is the only iconic piece here. "Umraao Jaan" is far superior in terms of the jewellery though "Jodha Akbar" the film may have garnered popularity.

An iconic piece of jewellery is one that stands the test of time. :-)

yes Tara there I have to agree with you. I was just thinking of the relevance of iconic jewellery, today:)
12-MAY-2011 Tara
But don't you think the jewellery was pretty accurate for the time period that Jodhaa Akbar depicted, Amanpreet? Of course I'd shudder at the thought of wearing this any given day but you have to give it credit for accuracy from a historical point of view.

Cannot see the jewellery in the first image :-(

This image only reminds me of the over-dressed nouveau rich saas-bahus of Delhi... not iconic or elegant... certainly not wearable even for a contemporary bride.

Umrao Jaan is a true classic--not just when it comes to jewellery but also with costumes and sets. And yes Lara, I remember how the Titanic necklace had a million replicas everywhere. That, along with the Pink Panther, were probably the most popular fictitious diamonds ever! :)

I'm a film fanatic!!!! Did you know that after “Titanic” was released, several jewellers made replicas of the “Heart of the Ocean”, the most genuine being made by Asprey and Garrad. Their necklace featured a 170 carat heart shaped sapphire and 65 diamonds. Celine Dion wore it to the Academy Awards and later became its proud owner when her husband bought it for her after paying a whopping $2.2 million!!!!

'Blood Diamond'

Hmmmm I would not call Jodha Akbar iconic as I would the "original" Umraao Jaan!! What do u feel?

I love Madonna's look in that movie too! It was her signature look in the 80s, wasn't it? But I have to agree with Anandita, Audrey Hepburn's look in Breakfast at Tiffany's was one of the most iconic moments for both fashion and cinema!!

I love costume jewellery so my favorite look was Madonna in "Desperately Seeking Susan"... with the stacked chains, pendants and bracelets!!

Can't get a look at the five strand pearl necklace with the diamond as it's a side pose!! That was a truly iconic moment though. A heirloom for sure!
