The story behind the upcoming action film Ocean’s 8 goes like this: With the Met Gala coming up, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) somehow knows that celebrity Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) is going to wear an extravagant necklace that costs over a whopping US$150 million.
Of course, Debbie’s got her eye on it but she's not executing such a high-risk robbery alone. So, she rounds up an all-female team (which includes Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina) to help in the heist.
According to Vogue UK, the magnificent jewellery piece is a replica of the Jeanne Toussaint necklace from the house of Cartier, the exclusive luxury jeweller partner for this film. Interestingly, the original piece was designed for a male, the Maharaja of Nawanagar. Made in the 1930s by Jacques Cartier, it was encrusted with coloured diamonds and named after then Cartier creative director Jeanne Toussaint.
Anne isn’t the only star dressed in glamorous and splendid Cartier jewels in Ocean’s 8. Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Zayn Malik, all of whom play cameo roles, also don Cartier pieces in the movie.
Ahead of the film’s official release on 14 June 2018 in Singapore, here’s a closer look at the Jeanne Toussaint necklace.
