Great Gatsby Premiere brings inspiration for Great Gatsby Wedding Themes
We’re so excited that our Great Gatsby Wedding Theme Shoot is being featured on so many wedding blogs! It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for The Great Gatsby movie to come out, and we’re so happy that opening week is finally here! The lavish big-screen version of The Great Gatsby premiered in New York last week and immediately brought the stylish Roaring Twenties back to life in fashion and especially in weddings.
Inspired by F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, the second movie version evokes the glamour of an age when men were suave, women were chic and everyone dressed in the most beautiful couture. That Twenties Great Gatsby style is already inspiring the fashion choices of brides and grooms. Tiffany & Co. recently released its Gatsby-inspired jewelry line.
The dazzling jewelry for the film was provided by Tiffany & Co., a natural fit, as the iconic American jewelry house’s archives from the 1920’s held ample inspiration for the pieces for Gatsby film. Using the jewels as metaphors for wealth and privilege, Daisy is almost always dripping with Tiffany’s handiwork, such as tassel necklaces, conch pearls, hand ornaments with daisy motifs and diamond rings with the Tiffany Setting.
Perhaps the most recognizable piece is the Savoy, a headdress of diamonds and cultured pearls. For other female characters, such as Elizabeth Debicki’s Jordan Baker, Tiffany & Co. created rose-cut diamond chandelier earrings of rose-cut diamonds, diamond bracelets, cushion-cut black onyx earrings and Art Deco-inspired sapphire, diamond and platinum rings. The company also styled the interior of Jay Gatsby’s posh estate with china, sterling flatware and other home accessories. The partnership was a natural fit, as F. Scott Fitzgerald himself was a regular Tiffany & Co. customer and the brand’s first design director, Louis Comfort Tiffany, was a part of the Long Island social circles portrayed in the story.
