From the obscure to the mainstream, we at Concierge Diamonds have created this list of the Top 10 Diamonds featured in Hollywood movies. Tell us what you think!

  1.     Movie: Titanic
  • Director: James Cameron
  • Diamond: The Heart of the Ocean
  • Why it’s special: This stone is perhaps the most iconic of all of the stones featured in movies we love. Not only does the stone have its own name, but it was the catalyst for discovering the remains of the Titanic and for learning about Jack and Rose’s romance!
  1.     Movie: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
  • Director: Howard Hawks
  • Diamond: Marilyn Monroe!
  • Why it’s special: Monroe’s rendition of the song “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” and pink dress are the two things that make this movie a stand out. They are an iconic symbol and her performance has inspired homages by Madonna, Nicole Kidman, Anna Nicole Smith and more. Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend.
  1.     Move: Snatch
  • Director: Guy Ritchie
  • Diamond: An 86 carat diamond
