The jewels plays an important role on the big screen for being part of the characteristics that brings life to a movie character, because a jewel evokes a time, shows a culture, social and an economic status, and highlights a particular style.
The ones in charge of the wardrobe department are the ones that designs every single piece of jewelry, including clothes and shoes that a character needs to wear. Whoever is in charge of such an important department should have an extensive knowledge of history of fashion, gowns, suits, paintings, drawings, as well as the history of the character and how it develops in it. The jewelry can be previously conceived in the sketch and be manufactured from scratch, based on the nature of the narrative and the character.
If we detail well each piece that is in each character of a well done movie, we will see that was designed and chosen to be the perfect match for clothing and hairstyles. However, the most of the garment that appears on the movies are made of plastic or much less delicate materials such as gold, silver or precious stones.
Without doubt, The Huntsman: Winter’s War is a film whose jewelry material was meticulously selected to play the role it had to fulfill, on this case, with the Evil Queen interpreted by Charlize Theron. The film focuses on rivalry between sisters struggling to be queens, and it’s amazing how they accomplished so well the history of each character.
It’s really difficult to watch this movie without looking at the jewels of the character portrayed by the South African actress. In previous images stands out the beautiful pointed golden crown, subtle earrings to not take away protagonism of what gives her authority as a queen (the crown). We can see a golden pointed-star-shaped necklace and a beautiful pair of rings that embrace different parts of the index finger and the thumb with metal nails anchored to the piece, and also with sharp point that undoubtedly makes the character looks powerful.
Going to a whole different side of simplicity, The Beauty and the Beast jewelry is so subtle as adorable because it’s inspired by nature. As we know, the history of this romantic movie is about a beautiful girl that becomes a prisoner of a man turned into a beast because of a spell that his dead father put on him, based in France of the eighteen century. As days go by, they start a friendly company until one day they dance in this iconic dance room that we all remember, and they fall in love.

In this scene, Bella wears his classic yellow dress with a tree branch golden necklace and earcuff, which reflects the forest that surrounds her in the castle. Also she wears a beautiful ornament leaves-shaped that grabs her hair gently in the most romantic moment of the film.
On the other hand, we have a musical inspired by old Hollywood named La La Land, that tells the story of a young woman who wants to become an actress, and a jazz musician that wants to reach success. They eventually fall in love with each other and we get delighted by a history of love, music, laughs and tears.
Emma Stone in La La Land (2016)
In one of the most romantic and adorable scenes of the movie, we see Emma Stone with a 14K gold and green onyx earrings and a 14K gold and green onyx necklace. With these two jewels we notice the reference of the old Hollywood way of wearing matching sets of jewelry. The green onyx also matches Emma’s green dress and her eyes, that shows us that matching the same color of jewel and clothes are not that bad.
