Gatsby, a feast of delicious, indulgent inspiration!
The Great Gatsby look has been all over the media in the last few weeks and with the film opening last week, we are pretty excited ourselves. The costumes for the film were designed by Catherine Martin and the 20s inspired pieces have become known as the Ziegfeld Collection, a collaboration with Tiffany and Co. While we can't get our hands on the original pieces (swoon), The Great Gatsby is a feast of inspiration and we can't help but feed you!
Starting the week with the ultimate extravagance, for those extra special commissions - the diamonds. For incredible sparkle that you only get with diamonds, choose from two grades; the Diamond Faceted Stone W30, an affordable stone with excellent quality. They may have inclusions that are visible to the naked eye but have a lovely sparkle. Our best quality Diamond faceted Stone W24, sometimes known as commercial white diamonds, the hardest mineral on the earth is 10 on the Mohs scale. This stone may have some tiny inclusions visible to the naked eye but that doesn't detract from their brilliance and beauty. If you ever need help choosing the right diamond for your piece, then get in touch as we would be happy to discuss your requirements.
If you are going for opulence and abundance with your pieces, achieve the look with the White Zircon Faceted Stone W19. With a close resemblance to a diamond, Zircon was once believed to provide the wear with riches, wisdom and honour.
For subtle colours that resonate with the time, you can’t fail to be wooed by the warm light of Champagne Coloured Cubic Zirconia FacetedStone W6 – they work well with either silver or gold findings and are perfect for a vintage look. If you can’t decide which colour to go for, opt for the Rainbow Glow Cubic Zirconia Faceted Stone W44 that flash with iridescent colour.
