There have already been a few film adaptations of the movie, but none more ambitious that the new Baz Lurman one, currently being shown in theaters everywhere. I have already seen it and is a beautiful film that everyone can enjoy due to its universal theme. Here is Leo Di Caprio as Jay Gatsby, with his ladylove Daisy Buchanan, played by the incomparable Carrey Mulligan. She is so impossibly chic in classic pearls.
This time period of the roaring twenties, with its colorful lifestyle, flappers an beautiful art deco jewels is one of my favorites. The wonderful clothes and jewels worn by Daisy (Carrey Mulligan) are simply to die for. The jewelry was done by Tiffany's and it was fabulous. Very inspired. I'm sure this film will have many awards come next season.
Oh to have lived in those glamorous times! When women were always chic and men were all gentlemen. In Gatsby's world there were always occasions for beautiful jewelry. I think perhaps it might have also been that there were too many!
One of my favorite pieces that I wear when I am feeling Gatsby-esque is the pearl and rock crystal convertible necklace from my private collection.
I am definitely channeling Daisy when I wear this out on the town. Another one of my favorite 20's inspired pieces are these diamond and blue topaz chandeliere earrings. So fab!
