Jewelry in the Movies

Just for fun, we wanted to make a quick Top Ten List of famous and good-looking pieces of jewelry worn by some of our favorite movie stars in some top films.  Had to omit some that were still pretty good (Harry Potter’s Quidditch Necklace….may be on the next list…), but here’s what we decided were the Top TEN!


#10 Sandy’s Hoop Earrings in Grease

Sandy's Hoop Earrings - Grease

There’s nothing sexier than hoop earrings! They look so hot with Sandy’s wild hair at the end. You go girl!

#9 Pocahontas Necklace

Pocahontas Necklace

Pocahontas sports her blue necklace wherever she goes. It is her go-to necklace. Whether she’s playing with her pet raccoon or elegantly dancing through a colorful array of tiny leaves, we give her an A for accessories and an A for hair-flow.

#8 The Pharaoh’s Jewelry – The Ten Commandments

The Pharoah's Jewelry - The Ten Commandments

Classic Charleton Heston movie featuring Yul Brynner as Rameses. He may have been an evil pharaoh, but he sure sported some sweet bling! Thick gold necklaces, bracelets with colored gems and who can forget that headdress with cobra accent…

#7 Captain Jack Sparrow & his Pretty Hair Beads

Jack Sparrow's Hair Beads

If you’re into beads, then you may think A Pirate’s Life is For You! Especially if you get to wear wood and silver beads in your hair.

#6 The Carrie Necklace

Carrie Bradshaw Necklace - Sex and the City

I pretty much wish I was Carrie Bradshaw. Her style is crazy, but she can pull it off. I’m not gonna lie, her cute little “Carrie” necklace made me want to go out and get a “Kelly” necklace!

 #5 Ruby Diamond Necklace from Pretty Woman

Ruby Diamond Necklace in Pretty Woman

Even the name Vivian would sound glamorous while wearing these rocks! She did look just like a princess. But she also looked great with the broken boots! Couldn’t really find a good closeup photo of the piece, guess you’ll just have to rewatch it :)

#4 Breakfast at Tiffany’s Necklace

Breakfast at Tiffany's Necklace

Audrey Hepburn would look amazing in a potato sack. Do you think those fabulous strands of pearls really came from Tiffany’s? ………….I want the Tiara…..

#3 Marilyn Monroe’s Diamonds in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Marilyn Monroe Diamond Necklace - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

I’ve never seen a more gorgeous woman than Marilyn Monroe. That satin pink dress, all those diamonds and all those handsome men… she makes me proud to be blonde!!!

#2 Scarlett O’Hara’s Necklace in Gone with the Wind

Scarlett O'Hara's Beaded Necklace - Gone With the Wind

How can even Scarlett O’Hara pout with that gorgeous piece of jewelry around her neck? Even spoiled girls need pretty trinkets. Things will look up when Rhett returns. After all, tomorrow is another day!

#1 Heart of the Ocean Necklace in Titanic

Heart of the Ocean Necklace - Titanic

This had to be number one. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet had crazy chemistry in that movie. I cried like a baby at the end. And that blue stone… wouldn’t you like to have that in your bead room?!
