The YouTube video below shows snippets of the mega-million dollar Chanel jewels used as part of the movie's costumes:
The movie's royal jewels appear be worthy of the Russian Tsarina herself, on a day off.
The movie is only 130 minutes. Tolstoy's novel is 800 pages!
I've been reading Tolstoy's novel for a number of years now. I occasionally pick-up the book and read a few pages, now and then.
I don't recall vivid descriptions of the characters' period jewelry style. But perhaps I haven't gotten to that part of the novel yet. Thank goodness this movie is out so I can get through the story!
