1 Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961). Audrey Hepburn and her little black dress in front of the windows of the most famous jewelry in New York and beyond, are a must to review.
2 The pink panther (1963) Contrary to what many think, the pink panther is not the nickname of David Niven, an actor who plays the thief protagonist of the first film in the series (with Peter Seller, Capucine and Claudia Cardinale), directed by Black Edwards, but of a diamond. Rosa, in fact.
3 Sex and the City II (2010). Film sequel directed by Michael Patrick King and which has not received great praise from critics (it’s an understatement). The jewels that Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda wear are by two Italian designers, Amedeo Scognamiglio and Roberto Faraone Mennella.

5 Suspicion (1941). A classic thriller by Alfred Hitchcock starring Joan Fontaine and Cary Grant. In a memorable scene Joan Fontaine wears a brooch in gold diamonds and Verdura pink topaz, little valued by the black and white film.
6 Romancing the Stone (1984). Played by Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. Guess which stone it is, given that the film takes place in Colombia? It seems to be one of the favorite films of the Graff family.
