Although the US (and indeed, the World) is not yet in-the-clear with respect to the economic kerfuffle of late, I feel people are getting antsy to spend spend spend! Let’s face it, the US is the most consumer-driven economy in the world, we are not used to saving and our mentality has always been spend now and deal with the consequences later. People are itching to ditch ho-hum fiscally responsible behavior, and the best outlet for such escapism is cinema. In swoops Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, The Great Gatsby. Set in New York in the roaring 20′s and prohibition (gasp! Illegal booze!), the book is the perfect backdrop for Hollywood period piece excess and costume drama. Is it any wonder that Tiffany & Co. jumped at the prime marketing opportunity to design all the jewelry for the movie? Yes, all the Great Gatsby jewelry by Tiffany & Co. is made of diamonds, platinum and pearls, no synthetics or similants here. The jewelry house dipped into their archives in order to produce historically accurate designs (as opposed to the Chanel Joaillerie in Anna Karenina) and Carey Mulligan will be just dripping in it!
