The decadent 1920s fashions on display in Baz Luhrmann‘s new film version of The Great Gatsby are so beautiful that it’s easy to forget they’re a symbol of some less-than-beautiful things: hubris, materialism, and the gilded cage that Tom Buchanan keeps his wife Daisy in. At least, that’s what Tiffany & Company is betting on with their Great Gatsby tie-in line of jewelry! From a diamond and pearl headpiece that costs $200,000 (pictured) to all manner of dangly baubles and jewels, this collection asks you to look at these shiny, shiny fineries and forget all about the sinister narrative role they play in the film. So sparkly. So forgetful. You will covet them like Gatsby covets Daisy: fiercely and inappropriately.
