Piaget, Natalie Portman and Jackie Kennedy

In the next film by Pablo Larraín, Natalie Portman plays Jackie Kennedy. She wears the exact replica of the watch worn by the first lady of the United States in the 1960s: a Piaget with a jade dial encircled by diamonds and tourmalines. Jewelers can’t abide seeing their former customers wearing any other creations but their own, even in movies: thus in 2011 Cartier recreated the jewelry of the Duchess of Windsor for Madonna, and in 2014, those of Grace Kelly for Nicole Kidman.

  • Piaget - Watch made of gold, jade, diamonds and tourmalines, worn by Jackie Kennedy in the film

  • Contemporary version of the Piaget watch worn by Jackie Kennedy - Pink gold, cornelian and diamonds
