Tiffany will be showcasing sparkling diamonds in Kenneth Branagh’s new film, in theaters October 2020
The incomparable 128-carat Tiffany Diamond, made famous by Audrey Hepburn and last worn by Lady Gaga, will appear in the new 20th Century Studios daring mystery-thriller, “Death on the Nile,” based on Agatha Christie’s 1937 novel.
“The Tiffany Diamond is a priceless symbol, and rarely makes an appearance beyond its vault,” said Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer. “A central role in the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel is deserving of our priceless diamond.” Tiffany, rare fancy yellow diamond, was unearthed in 1877 as a 287.42-carat rough diamond from the Kimberley mines of South Africa and procured by Charles Lewis Tiffany. In 1878, the rough diamond was cut in Paris into a 128.54-carat cushion-shape brilliant with an unprecedented 82 facets, revealing the stone’s extraordinary fire and beauty.
This October, select Tiffany stores will feature a “Death on the Nile” curation of diamond-intensive Tiffany jewelry reflecting looks from the film. A recreation of The Tiffany Diamond is prominently featured at the center of the storyline. “Death on the Nile” stars Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Kenneth Branagh, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hamer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright.
In “Death on the Nile,” Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short. Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, the stunning Tiffany Diamond, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement. Death on the Nile is in theaters October 2020.
