JEWELERY ∙ FILM ∙ MOMENTS – Hollywood’s Love Affair with Jewelry – a Bejeweled Cinema Exhibition
JEWELERY ∙ FILM ∙ MOMENTS
Nordic Film Cinemas
Sex, excitement, glamor, and jewelry – invariably important elements in the world of film.
Titanic, Romancing the Stone, Pretty Woman
In the movie “Titanic”, the main character throws the blue heart-cut diamond necklace into the depths of the wrecked, sunken ship. In “Romancing the Stone”/”Now goes the wild treasure hunt”, the treasure is in fact a large emerald. In “Pretty Woman”, Richard Gere’s character slams the jewelry box around Julia Roberts’ fingers, causing her to burst into the biggest – and most spontaneous – laugh in film history.
Cinema-goers in Nordisk Films Cinemas in Frederiksberg, Viborg and Odense can experience a large exhibition in the hall this spring. Here, 40 goldsmiths, silversmiths and jewelry designers have each produced a piece of jewelry for their favorite film or streaming series. The result will be colorful, creative and humorous, and it will be possible to experience it from 1 March 2024 to 30 May 2024.
A Nina Hald Exhibition
This gem and jewelry inspired exhibit has been curated by Nina Hald, author of 12 books and 10 exhibition catalogues, editor of AuClock and Luxury Aficionados, Royal jewellery curator, and freelance jewellery journalist.
So why is jewelry interesting in a cinematic context?
Curator of the exhibition Nina Hald says: “Jewellery is included in many ways in films and streaming series. This can be, for example, through classic product placement – it can be at the center of the film’s action, such as when a jewel heist is about to be committed – and then the film stars themselves are wearing jewelry worth millions of kroner when they walk the red carpet at the Oscars or to the Cannes Film Festival”.
In other words, the exhibition explores Hollywood’s love affair with the jewelry industry, which has shaped pop culture’s iconic entertainment for more than 75 years.
Films represented by jewelry artists include:
Men in Black
James Bond: Diamonds are Forever
Mission: Impossible II
The Hunger Games
Romancing the Stone
Death Becomes Her
The Bag Man
Crazy Rich Asians
The Pink Panther
& The Grand Budapest Hotel
Cinema manager Bolette Hvalsøe Boe Hansen, Falkoner Bio, says: “We are very much looking forward to giving our guests an extra experience of the greats before they go in and see a good film. You are of course also very welcome to just drop by Falkoner Bio and see the great exhibition”.
