Tiffany offering jewels to Luhrmann movie

Tiffany is supplying jewellery to the stars of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

The famous fine diamond jeweller has created one-off pieces for Carey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher and Tobey Maguire to wear in the film, which is based on the 1920s period novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Baz and the film's production designer Catherine Martin approached Tiffany last year regarding accessories for the upcoming movie, and the company has come up trumps.

One-off platinum and diamond-encrusted rings, headpieces, bracelets and pearl necklace shave been designed, which are all inspired by its archives.

Jon King, Tiffany & Co executive vice president, is thrilled with the collaboration

"It's a natural role for Tiffany," he told WWD . "Tiffany was certainly part of this era. The brand was at the centre of the parties of the rich and famous.

"Our archives contain spectacular jewels from the 1920s that are the basis of the one-of-a-kind designs we have created for this iconic American story."

The Great Gatsby is filming in Australia now.
