The Bling Ring, a group of California teenage burglars whose story was the basis for several film interpretations including the 2013 release by director Sofia Coppola, inspired much more controversy than actual jewelry. There are, however, many jewelry lines inspired by original media content. Fans and mega-fans alike are bound to appreciate sentimental totems and keepsakes that are inspired by their beloved films and film characters. Wouldn’t they be ever more appreciative of such a thoughtful gift if it was more than just a trinket, but an actual piece or set of nice jewelry?
For All Generations
Disney classic films still hold that special place in our current media environment – they were an important part of almost all of our childhoods: my mother’s, mine, my nieces’, etc. From a couture cocktail ring inspired by Snow White’s apple, a delightful gift for the special teacher in your life, to a Beauty and the Beast rose pendant, these masterpieces reach for the childlike heartstrings of the recipient and have already proven to stand the test of time.
You can also find pieces that appear simpler at first glance, like hoop earrings, but are actually engraved with delicate letters of your loved one’s favorite Disney phrases. “A dream is a wish your heart makes” and “Have faith in your dreams” are classy and simplistic favorites.
The Very Latest
While considering thoughtful gifts like film-inspired jewelry, you are probably already tuned into your beloved’s latest favorites. But just for an overview if you’re looking for some guidance: many women still can’t get over Sex and the City. Who can blame them? The series ran for six years and the film sequels just keep coming. The hottest Sex and the City item is an intimate, yet lighthearted, charm bracelet for women who see a part of themselves in the series.
I’m afraid to mention it, but there’s also quite a selection when it comes to Twilight inspired jewelry. It’s hit or miss, but some of these accessories, aimed at a younger audience, are gorgeous. And last year, jewelry shops were filled with simple beaded necklaces inspired by Eat, Pray, Love. Women who want to accessorize their lives based on their personal self-fulfillment journeys will still love a Love, Eat, Pray yoga necklace long after they finished re-reading the memoir for the third time. For jewelry with a polished and modern look, and as a great gift for dance enthusiasts, check out this Black Swan inspired silver and onyx necklace. Natalie Portman rocked a super glamorous, yet dark, look with her sophisticated ballerina grace and this jewelry will make the wearer feel just as glam.
Collectors of vintage jewelry often find their treasures in antique shops and spend lots of time with their family heirlooms in jewelry repair shops. Although, I’d love to find my great-great-grandmother’s pendant necklace in the attic and to contact goldcobbler.com for a restoration that won’t harm or tarnish my jewelry, I don’t even know how to get into my attic. So what about a pendant necklace inspired by Scarlett O’Hara, of Gone with the Wind fame, who happens to be the epitome of vintage charm herself?
Don’t forget other classics, like the Titanic’s Heart of the Ocean sapphire diamond worn unforgettably by Kate Winslet, which has inspired many beautiful replicas, or the pendant of Arwen Evenstar, which every Lord of the Rings fan will recognize as a symbol of unparalleled and enduring beauty. Now that’s the kind of message you want your next jewelry gift to convey!
