The most iconic jewellery in movies

Pink Panther Diamond iconic jewellery .jpg


When it comes to movies, it’s easy to remember the plot, characters, popular quotes, or even the exotic film locations. However, the wardrobe and accessories often steal the show. The influence of jewellery is far and wide, especially in movies. The classic line “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” is remembered to this day, and who could forget the sparkly jewellery in the iconic films we grew up with.

Here are some of the most iconic jewellery in movies:


Everyone who has seen Titanic (and even those who haven’t) know about the ‘Heart of the Ocean’. The blue diamond necklace worn by Kate Winslet’s character, Rose, is one of the most extravagant pieces of jewellery in movie history. In the film, the diamond was originally owned by King Louis XVI, and it was later shaped into a heart after the French Revolution. The multi-million dollar necklace, given to Rose by her fiance, is dropped into the ocean at the end of the film.

Gentlemen prefer blondes

Where the famous line ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ originates from, Gentlemen prefer blondes is one of the most popular Marilyn Monroe movies.

The diamond pendant worn by Monroe is one of the oldest pieces of jewellery used in films, as it was about 500 years old at the time. Since the movie was released, the popularity of diamonds increased greatly. In fact, the popularity of diamonds increased so much that, by the end of the 1950s, a company called De Beers made the diamond engagement ring a vital part of getting engaged.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

The iconic pearl and diamond necklace worn by Audrey Hepburn was a classic piece of jewellery that has inspired many jewellery pieces for years afterwards. The character named Holly Golightly would drop by in front of the famous jewellery store, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and admire the jewellery pieces.

Pretty Woman

No one can forget the scene where Richard Gere snapped the jewellery box closed as Julia Roberts reached for the diamond and ruby necklace. This wasn’t scripted, but the director enjoyed Julia Roberts’ reaction so much that he decided to keep it in the movie. The necklace was valued at $1.35 million and had 23 rubies cut into the shape of pears.

The Pink Panther

This movie isn’t just about a French detective solving random robberies, it was a search for the world's most famous jewellery including the highly valuable Pink Panther Diamond. When viewed closely, the diamond is said to resemble a leaping panther. The famous jewel appeared in six of the eleven films.
