Woman in Gold…or should it be Pearls?!

Woman in Gold 1Have you noticed the gem of choice in many of the recently released films? Our Pearl Team have.

Let’s focus on one film in particular, ‘Woman in Gold’.
Staring Helen Mirren as an octogenarian Jewish refugee, Maria Altmann, she takes on the Austrian government to recover the Klimt 1907 masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, which was confiscated by the Nazis from the Bloch-Bauer mansion in Vienna, a piece of artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family.

Throughout the film you see a selection of pearl jewellery gracing the frame of Maria, played by Helen Mirren.

Two items that kept appearing were the large pearl stud earrings and the delicate single strand pearl necklace seen in the image on the right.

Another film where Mirren was decked out in pearls…Coleman Douglas Pearls, was the action thriller ‘The Debt’.

Set in 1965, the film follows the lives of three Mossad agents who cross into East Berlin to apprehend a notorious Nazi war criminal. However, thirty years later a ‘secret’ comes back to haunt them which they must deal with.The Debt Helen

Throughout this film Helen Mirren wears our grey pearl studs with optional tahitian pearl drop, our South Sea Pearl Strand Necklace, as well as a selection of other Coleman Douglas Pearl company jewellery.

BAFTA + our Pearls = WINNER

pearls The DebtLast weekend we saw Helen Mirren win the BAFTA Fellowship award for her lifetime achievement in film, the highest honour the Academy can bestow.
Having played many contrasting roles, such as Queen Elizabeth II in ‘The Queen’, to a Mossad agent in ‘The Debt’, where Mirren is on a secret mission to capture and kill a notorious Nazi war criminal.
If you, like us saw ‘The Debt’ then you will have seen a beautiful selection of Coleman Douglas Pearls jewellery gracing the leading lady.

As you can see in the screen The Debtshot on the right, one of our South Sea Pearl strand necklaces was featured.

The Debt
Throughout the film Helen Mirren wears our grey Freshwater Pearl studs with detachable dove grey Tahitian Pearl drops.

At the beginning of the film we see Mirren wearing the earrings as drops, but as the pace of the film increases with her going back out to the ‘mission field’, she opts for the simple classic studs.
