Cartier is the exclusive jewelry partner for the upcoming Ocean’s 8 movie
Cartier has painstakingly reproduced one of its historic necklaces, for the summer blockbuster by Warner Bros. Pictures. The necklace is the focus of the movie’s plot following the storyline of Danny Ocean’s sister portrayed by Sandra Bullock.
For the latest installment of the Ocean’s franchise, Ocean’s 8, Hollywood turns to Cartier for an exclusive jewelry partnership. As a result, a spectacular re-creation of one of Cartier’s iconic diamond necklaces: the Toussaint necklace stars in the film. Jacques Cartier designed the original necklace in 1931 for the Maharaja of Nawanagar. It was described as a ‘cascade of diamonds’ and featured the 136.25-carat Queen of Holland diamond as well as other colored diamonds.
Although the necklace no longer exists today, Cartier jewelers have turned to their archives to uncover sketches of the original piece. The necklace worn by actress Anne Hathaway is a faithful reproduction created in the Rue de la Paix High Jewelry workshops of the maison. It is made of zirconium oxide and mounted on white gold with 11 moveable bezels to withstand the riguers of filming. The necklace is a tribute to the brand’s legendary Creative Director of the 1930s, Jeanne Toussaint and is a marvelous example of Cartier’s superb craftsmanship.
Ocean’s 8 will be released by Warner Bros. in theaters on 8th June.
