When Satine first appears on screen she sings of how “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend”. The film’s evil Duke of Monroth takes note and later presents her with a dazzling diamond garland necklace.  The necklace is the most expensive piece of jewelry created for film. Designed and made by Stefano Canturi, it was made with 1,308 diamonds, weighing a total of 134 carats, and was worth an estimated $1 million. The necklace is a modern interpretation of garland necklaces which were popular among the elite in 1890s Paris. The necklace represents the cold cruel world of money in which Satine is forced to stay in order to save her true love’s life. Her ultimate rejection of the beautiful necklace represents her embrace of the bohemian ideal that love conquers all.

    This is the chandelier necklace that I wanted as a collar. I didn’t know how or why I wanted it, but I did. I still do.
