Inspired by the timeless theme of young love in the new feature film Romeo & Juliet, Swarovski has created an exquisite collection of jewelry that reflects the movie’s romantic essence. This is the first feature film from Swarovski Entertainment Ltd, Swarovski’s new film division. To recall the Renaissance setting of the movie, historical jewelry pieces have been reinterpreted with a modern twist.
Materials such as ruthenium add a hint of rock attitude to this delicate, romantic collection, created in a fresh and subtle pastel color palette. I had the chance to attend the first screening of the film, together with the designers in charge of the collection. This was a fantastic opportunity to create jewelry pieces directly inspired by the scenes, the opulent costumes of the actors, and the set design. Figurative, the line evokes elements of the storytelling through symbols such as the heart, the bow, the sword, the rose, and the cross.
The collection’s iconic piece is the Knot ring, which is a replica of the ring given by Romeo to Juliet. It’s been delightful to create a line inspired by such an iconic story, and I’m sure many fashionistas’ boyfriends will find a perfectly romantic Christmas gift in it!
