Jewelry proved to be a big part in Madonna's film W.E. and costume designer Arianne Phillips was determined to get it right.

Since the Duke and Duchess' real jewelry belonged to museums, Phillips reached out to Cartier and agreed to help recreate 10 pieces specifically for the film. Now that jewels have served their purpose, Cartier is plans to destroy them and for a very good reason.

Arianne explained:

"We recreated 10 pieces with Cartier. They own them because it’s their design and copyright. They are housed in Switzerland, I believe. They are going to dispose of them and destroy them this year, just because it’s like trying to recreate a Picasso or another great work of art. It would devalue the original that’s privately owned. I'm not sure what Van Cleef & Arpels are doing with the bracelet they made for us, but they own it. If we’re lucky, (and we’re working really hard with Cartier), we'll get to exhibit the pieces that were created."

It makes sense why they'd want to destroy them, but we think an exhibit would be better!
