Algerian Love Knot by Sophie Harley
Jewellery designer Sophie Harley's Love Knot has a starring role in the James Bond film Casino Royale (2006) and features again briefly in the sequel Quantum of Solace (2008).
The Algerian Love Knot is intriguing and slightly mysterious. Worn on the neck with a triple strand chain which drops down from the knot, it compliments Eva Green's enigmatic and seductive beauty and perfectly taps into this Autumn's red-lipped, femme fatale look.
As seen on the beautiful Eva Green. Casino Royale features a sentimental sub plot involving 'Vesper Lynd' & her Algerian Love Knot Necklace, worn throughout the movie. This special piece of jewellery steals the show. Created from twisted gold and silver rings, multi layered chains, and featuring Sophie's signature winged heart clasp, the necklace bears the hallmarks of Sophie's inspiration. Ancient symbols & motifs allude to mysterious mythology & storytelling and is thus perfect for the mix of action, intrigue and romantic subplots... Eva's earrings, seen in Casino Royale, are also still available. Made in oxidised silver with 18 carat gold plated detailing, and semi precious black and red garnet stone drop briolettes, these earrings complete the Eva Green set.
