Diamond Jubilee


We saw Anna Karenina last night and while I did not want her to throw herself under a train in general,  I knew that she would and I found myself wishing she might do it a little sooner.  Keira Knightly's jewelry by Chanel, did keep me interested throughout and I was clicking around trying to find those remarkable diamond and pearl earrings today.  No luck.  But, as sometimes happens, I stumbled across something equally delicious.  Chanel's site features a video of the design and fabrication of the most remarkable necklace.  Four and half minutes - well worth every second.  Here.

Just finished the film. Just beautiful. The detail, the focus of the artisans, and oh. . . the materials to work with. Just beautiful.

I saw the movie Thursday night and think I felt the same. I was in awe of the jewelry and I don't necessarily think that was what the director was going for.

Exquisite! I never realized how much work and precision is involved in making fine jewelry.

Lavender - more no than yes. I would have enjoyed watching it at home, perhaps.

OMG, AK was a sumptuous treat for the eyes, but I can tell you that I was not alone in hysterical laughter after the movie ended. What was that we just witnessed? Me thinks it was a long Chanel commercial, which is fine with me. Chanel is divine but the movie was a bit too avant guarde for me.

I felt the same about the movie! But I ADORED her jewelry, most especially her rings.
