The Great Gatsby Inspires A Tiffany & Co. Jewelry Collection
Baz Lurhmann‘s highly anticipated remake of The Great Gatsby, starring Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio, has inspired a classic jewelry collection that could have been ripped right from the roaring 1920s. Created by The Great Gatsby costume designer Catherine Martin, the 13 show-stopping period pieces that form The Ziegfeld Collection were made in collaboration with jewelry staple Tiffany & Co.
“The jewelry we created for this momentous production of [F. Scott] Fitzgerald’s famous novel and our designs for the Ziegfeld Collection reveal the style of the period and Tiffany as its premier jeweler,” said John King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co. “Tiffany was certainly part of this era. The brand was at the center of the parties of the rich and famous.”
The collection, which went on display at Tiffany & Co.’s flagship Fifth Avenue windows in mid-April, features everything from a gorgeous sterling silver locket and pearl earrings to cufflinks and a stunning headpiece decked out in round-cut diamonds. “Catherine Martin can do any amount of work on jewelry on costume but that doesn’t mean it will look right,” said King. “It takes a great actor to illuminate a costume. The great privilege was I was able to work with the finest actors in the world. That’s the biggest special effect.”
Ranging in price from $135 to $875,000, The Ziegfeld Collection offers something for everyone regardless of your bank account. Check out the looks below and shop the collection here before The Great Gatsby hits theaters on May 10.
