The silver screen would be just a screen without the glittering accessories of the icons that grace it. Just one solitary glance of an expertly paired necklace and earrings offers a portal into a world of impossible, bewitching glamour. So as purveyors of fine jewellery, we feel it’s only appropriate to celebrate the film role models of today and yesteryear alike, for the way they continue to inspire us by their impeccable style. As Rachel Zoe suggests “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”. So let’s see what these icons’ jewellery says about them.

A highly vocal advocate of the Earth’s natural beauty, it’s no surprise that Paltrow’s diamond ensembles harness the mysterious wonder of nature and the elements. Such stunning designs make for the kind of jewellery you’d never want to consciously un-couple from.
