VENICE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL ISSUE: CINEMA’S DIAMONDS

The Venice International Film Festival has come to its 76th edition, and it is still one of the most important moment in the cinematic industry. The festival celebrates the highest cinematographic quality, but it is also an important event for another sector: fashion. Fashion and movies are an inseparable duo, both in and out of the screens. And, as fashion, also jewels find a way to sparkle more thanks to the most iconic movies.

What are the most iconic jewels in the history of cinema? Surely, the ones that saw Titanic, the notorious drama written and directed by James Cameron, cannot forget about the Heart of the Ocean. The blue diamond is the virtual engine of all the history, with a charm to die for. Another iconic jewel is the necklace that Audrey Hepburn wore in the opening scenes of Breakfast at Tiffany's, in perhaps her most famous look. Black dress, gloves, big sunglasses and a gigantic pearl collar necklace with a big diamond mounted and the history is done. A Tiffany’s diamond of course. What about Marylin Monroe diamonds? During her very iconic performance of “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes she wore a necklace with a gigantic diamond. The name of that diamond is “Moon of Baroda” and it is a jewel that centuries ago was worn even by Marie Antoinette, and also other well-known figures.

Are the jewels made famous by the movies or is it the other way around? What’s certain is that both the movies and the jewels are iconic. Art that celebrates art. Because jewels represent an artistic expression that eventually someone wear.

Recarlo knows this, and since he loves art in all its appearances, it encloses it in every jewel. A unique style, original and elegant, and the creative design are the things that characterize every Recarlo’s creation. Art ready to wear, perfect for a red carpet at the Venice International Film Festival, for shining even more.
