Jewelry lovers are in for a visual treat if they were to go and see the latest movie version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's, The Great Gatsby. The tale of decadence, betrayal and murder is set in the 1920's. From a jewelry design perspective, the movie beautifully evokes jazz age glamor with the stunning art deco pieces.

Also note Daisy's Indian style platinum hand piece which features diamonds pearls! That particular design was based on a Tiffany drawing of bracelet and compact combination.
Catherine Martin said, "Plus, in the book, Tom Buchanan gives Daisy a string of pearls worth $300,000 on the eve of their wedding, and Tiffany had been promoting pearls as a female rite of passage during that exact time. I thought it was a wonderful connection."
Other pieces in the movie included a daisy motif for a signet ring worn by Leonardo DiCaprio who plays Gatsby, the Daisy heart locket and a gorgeous Daisy brooch.
