Pablo Larraín's biopic of Jackie Kennedy, aptly named Jackie, documents the former First Lady in extreme detail. This, of course, includes an examination of her elegant taste in watches and jewellery.

Faithfully reproducing her instantly-recognisable style, Piaget dressed actress Natalie Portman for the film, who wore the maison's gold and diamond watch with a jade dial. Additionally, a freshwater pearl and diamond necklace from Piaget's Limelight collection was featured in the blockbuster, as well as pink-gold diamond tassle earrings.

The Jeanne Toussaint necklace, which was created by Cartier, is worn by Anne Hathaway in Hollywood hit, Ocean's 8. This one-of-a-kind jewel, made specifically for the film, took eight weeks to create in Cartier's Parisian workshop, but is based on an original design that dates back to the 1930s.

A cascade of dazzling white and coloured diamonds, the Ocean's 8 necklace is made in zirconium oxide, which is then mounted in white gold, to emulate the massive diamonds that graced the original piece, which was made for the Maharaja of Nawanagar by Jacques Cartier in 1931.
