FILM RELIC: Suspenseful, sure. Action packed, definitely. But a fashion movie, “Angels & Demons” is not. That didn’t stop Damiani Group vice president Silvia Damiani from injecting a dose of glamour, courtesy of the 85-year-old Italian jewelry brand. Damiani partnered with costume designer Daniel Orlandi to create the jewelry for the Tom Hanks-starring film, based on the Dan Brown novel.
Damiani created a special collection of crosses and rosary beads for the characters, including Vittoria Vetra, the part played by actress Ayelet Zurer. Damiani is launching a collection inspired by its work for the film of crosses and rosary beads made using gold, diamonds, onyx and black enamel at the Couture trade show in Las Vegas at the end of the month. Retail prices for the line, also dubbed Angels & Demons, will retail from $3,440 to $8,540.
