01-003 THE GOLDEN BALL NECKLACE
ORIGINAL MATERIAL: Fashion jewelry, Glass Stones
REPLICA MATERIAL: Fashion Jewelry, Swarovski Crystals
Some of the scenes we shot numerous times to get the effect Hitchcock wanted. The entrance scenes, where the color and sparkle of her necklace needed to set off the series of scenes to follow was shot more than six times, as the lighting was changed and re-arranged many times, concentrating on Grace’s Jewels.
In most of Grace’s films, she wore her own jewelry and rarely used studio pieces. This set was rented by Paramount Studios from a local Los Angeles ‘Studio Supply’ house and they were responsible for correcting the stone colors.
Grace loved the way the jewelry looked and insisted the studio buy the set for her and she could keep it. Alfred Hitchcock agreed and presented all the jewelry worn by Grace in the movie to her at the cast ‘Wrap Party’, which was held when the last filming was completed. Grace wore this set of jewelry when she became Princess of Monaco.
