TV production team approach brand for jewels akin to Liz Taylor’s.
Cartier jewellery is set appear in the upcoming BBC drama Burton and Taylor which will air on July 22.
The programme is focused on Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton being reunited to act together in the 1983 play Private Lives. Cartier was approached by Burton and Taylor’s producers who wished to use jewellery that reflected as closely as possible the tastes of Elizabeth Taylor.
The drama features Helena Bonham-Carter playing Elizabeth Taylor and Dominic West in the role of Richard Burton. Bonham-Carter wears Cartier’s pink gold Love bracelet with four diamonds, supplied by Cartier for the duration of the filming.
Elizabeth Taylor wore a number of iconic Cartier pieces during her life, including its Juste Un Clou bracelet and the Love bracelet.
Burton and Taylor will air Monday July 22 at 9pm on BBC Four.
