The necklace worn by Princess Leia’s in Star Wars is 40 years. And is back ♦ ︎
Star Wars in 2017 has reached 40 years. But it does not show them: the saga continues (the new episode is titled The Last Jedi). Perhaps even to celebrate George Lucas’s first film series, Princess Leia’s Necklace has come back to date. For those who want it is still on sale, it’s in silver and costs 2255 euros. You can also buy the earrings and bracelet worn by Carrie Fisher, who disappeared in December 2016.
The Star Wars jewels have a long history. They have been commissioned to Lapland Jewelry by Björn Weckström, Finnish designer and sculptor. The necklace, called Planetoid Valleys and the Darina bracelet, have become the most popular jewelery pieces of the brand.
Everyone started with a call in Weckström in 1976. A collaborator of George Lucas asked the designer new jewelry within six weeks. The choice was not casual: Björn Weckström had already made pieces on the subject of space and science fiction. But the time allowed was shortened to a week and, therefore, a existed jewel of Lapponia Jewelry was used. Since film scenes were shot in studios near London, space jewelery was purchased very simply in Bond Street.
The Planetoid Valley Necklace and Darina Bracelet were worn by Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia as he handed the medals to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford). Since then, the Space Silver collection, designed in 1969, has become a cult object. Cosimo Muzzano
