Algerian love knot necklace makes another starring role

23-Oct-2008 • Quantum Of Solace

In Quantum of Solace, it's not a gizmo or Q invention that holds the key to the plot, but a piece of jewellery. Having designed two sets of earrings and a loveknot necklace for Eva Green's Vesper Lynd (above) to wear in the casino scene for Casino Royale, jeweller Sophie Harley was called upon once again. In Quantum of Solace, the beginning of which is set an hour after the climax of Casino Royale, the necklace makes another appearance - reports The Telegraph.

"Obviously, the producers were very strict about revealing the plot," says Sophie, "But they told me that the necklace is the only thing that Bond has left of Vesper Lynd's. In the trailer there is a shot of the necklace on a table just as Camille (Olga) asks Bond: "Do you love someone?". "I do," he replies.

Is this the end of Bond as we knew him? Has he at last found "enduring love" or will he stay true to form and give the necklace to another girl?

"The producers did indicate that the necklace would be worn again in Quantum," says Sophie.

The original loveknot necklace can be bought for £1,939, as can the original garnet drop earrings (£323 and £384) but there are also cheaper designs based on the same shape, from £135. www.sophieharley.com; 020 7430 2070.
