Movie Jewelry: Tiffany & Co Rides The Great Gatsby Wave

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Catherine Martin, the woman behind the amazing costumes in The Great Gatsby, joined forces with Tiffany & Co. to bring you the decadent jewelry collection used in one of the most talked-about movies of 2013. The movie adaptation of F. Scot Fitzgerald's classic novel is directed by Baz Luhrmann and has already grossed over 136 million dollars since it's May release. 

Martin, an Australian costume designer, catapulted to the lime light with her double Oscar-win for Moulin Rouge back in 2001. She was also the creative mind behind Australia and William Shakespeare's Rome & Juliet.

If you are wondering why she's contributed to almost all of Baz Luhrmann's movies, it's because she's his wife -  they met in college and tied the knot in 1997.

In the build up to the release of the movie, the Tiffany & Co. flagship store on Fifth Avenue unveiled the Jazz Age Glamour collection with their roaring 20's inspired windows. The opulent pieces are available for purchase and it includes the 24 karat savoy headpiece worn by Carey Mulligan's character Daisy, for a whopping 724,000 AED (200,000 USD).

And if you think the prices are outrageously high that no one would buy in this down-trodden economy, think again! The 176 year old company saw a 9% increase in revenue, an amount analysts were not expecting.
