A confession from the Jewell box ... Sparkling diamonds

...She watched and waited until the guard turned down the opposite hallway and then silently tip-toed across the parquet wooden floors to our glass cabinet. Her long sleek black hair was pushed aside and with her adrenalin buzzing she got to work quickly at dismantling our alarm system. We sparkled in the moonlight coming down from the glass skylights above. She reached in and grabbed us all greedily and shoved us in the front zip pocket of her black jumpsuit. She whispered in to the tiny headset, "mission accomplished" and he gave her the all clear to leave via the exit they had already obscured the security cameras on. If all went to plan, soon they would be on a tropical island, dancing the night away at the cocktail bar and rich beyond their wildest dreams...

These gorgeous jewels are actually my wedding jewellery ( the big day was nearly five years ago now). I saved and saved for these and admired them constantly in the jewellers' cabinet until they were mine. Although they are only costume jewels ( ssshhhh, that's a secret between you and me!), everyone always thinks they are real when I have a special occasion to wear them to. At the time I was obsessed with Baz Luhrmann's movie Moulin Rouge ( bought the book, the movie and the CD) and set out to find some jewels of the kind that Satine would be wearing. Found them and then went looking for that Perfect dress. Does anyone else have an outfit or jewels they love inspired by some great cinematic event?
