Our Favourite On-Screen Jewellery Moments

In times like these we’ve been turning to movies to remain inspired, entertained and de-stressed. Imagining ourselves in alternate realities - being swept away by Leonardo DiCaprio whilst aboard the Titanic, or lifted into the air by Patrick Swayze amidst an iconic dance routine (or even being embraced by Ron Weasley whilst traipsing through the depths of the Chamber of Secrets) - has become a somewhat therapeutic activity while we come to terms with the sudden change in our lifestyles. 

There’s just something about a good romance movie, be it a drama or a rom-com, that we can’t seem to get enough of right now.

Here are some of our most coveted dazzlers, spotted in our favourite classic Hollywood flicks! 

  • The Great Gatsby (2013)

    It’s nearly impossible not to fall in love with Daisy Buchanan’s cushion halo diamond ring and matching wedding band! The 1920s Art Deco period was a time where architecture and fashion were greatly influenced by ideas of luxury, bold colour and sharp geometric patterns, and Daisy’s ring is a prime example of this!

    • Legally Blonde 2 (2003)

    If Elle Woods were a ring, this would be it! Her 5-carat, cushion-cut pink sapphire nestled between two triangular diamonds compliments her pink obsession perfectly.

    Two-Tone Ruby and Diamond Ring

    • Blue Jasmine (2013)

    Not only was Cate Blanchett’s wardrobe extremely high-end as she played Jasmine, an ex-Upper East Side socialite, it’s reported that her jewellery collection was just as extravagant. In one scene she was decked out in over a million dollars worth of diamonds, requiring an armed bodyguard on the set! Her emerald-cut engagement ring pictured here is just one piece from her opulent collection.

    • My Best Friend's Wedding (1997)

    Kim’s (Cameron Diaz) round claw-set diamond with micropavé band had a huge influence on engagement ring trends in the late 90s, and is still a modern trend today. Jules (Julia Roberts) wasn’t the only one envious of this dazzler!


    Emilie Round Brilliant

    • Titanic (1997)

    While we were of course all rooting for Leo throughout the entire movie, Rose’s (Kate Winslett) controlling fiancé did give her quite the grand engagement ring.The three-stone ring was supposedly inspired by a particular piece of jewellery found in the ship’s wreckage.


    Isla Trilogy

    Portia Trilogy

    • Sex and the City

    Carrie Bradshaw was undoubtedly the queen of 90s style, and with the resurgence of 90s fashion we’ve been seeing lately, it’s no surprise images of her looks are beginning to resurface all over the internet! One of her most memorable pieces was her signature nameplate necklace, worn in nearly every episode.
