The incomparable 128-carat Tiffany Diamond, made famous by Audrey Hepburn and last worn by Lady Gaga, will appear in 20th Century Studios/ daring mystery-thriller, “Death on The Nile” based on Agathe Christie’s 1937 novel.
The upcoming movie “Death on the Nile” has quite a strong cast, featuring Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Kenneth Branagh, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hamer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright. The recreation of The Tiffany Diamond will be prominently featured at the center of the storyline, alongside with other Tiffany designs.
In the movie, Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, the stunning Tiffany Diamond, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.
“The Tiffany Diamond is a priceless symbol of the highest standards of virtuosity and craftsmanship at Tiffany, and rarely makes an appearance beyond its vault,” said Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer of the brand. “A central role in the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel is deserving of our priceless diamond.”
The Tiffany Diamond, a rare fancy yellow diamond, was unearthed in 1877 as a 287.42-carat rough stone from the Kimberley mines of South Africa and procured by Charles Lewis Tiffany. In 1878, the rough diamond was cut in Paris into a 128.54-carat cushion-shape brilliant with an unprecedented 82 facets, revealing the stone’s extraordinary fire and beauty.
This October, Tiffany & Co will promote the film in stores and across its digital platforms, highlighting the radiant yellow diamond as well as the exceptional collection that will be seen on the screen. Several stores will feature select Tiffany jewellery reflecting looks from the film, including the exquisite and one-of-a-kind high jewellery pieces, Tiffany & Co. Victoria and Schlumberger designs. Furthermore, the Tiffany Flagship Next Door boutique in New York, the Beverly Hills boutique in Los Angeles, and the Old Bond Street in London will present the spirit of Christie’s thrilling mystery and feature jewelry from the film.
