Since the Bond franchise hit our screens 50 years ago, audiences have been captivated by 007 and his worldwide adventures. However, no Bond film is truly complete without a stunning Bond girl and no Bond girl is truly complete without her iconic jewellery. Now everyone can live out the bond girl fantasy with William May Jewellers dazzling jewellery range that looks like it’s come straight out of the big screen!
As rumours swirl that the new 007 may be a woman, William May takes a look back at the iconic leading ladies of James Bond and of course their accessories too. To emulate the style of your favourite Bond girl look no further as William May provides the perfect dupes for the most coveted accessories worn by 007’s best leading ladies.
A classic look
The Bond Girl has become the embodiment of style and seduction. Considered one of the first Bond girls alongside Honey Ryder, Sylvia Trench, played by Eunice Gayson in Dr No (1962), helped establish the Bond Girl as the iconic role it is today. In a scene from the film, Sylvia can be seen wearing a sophisticated Sapphire and Diamond bracelet.
A similar Sapphire and Diamond bracelet can be found on the William May site, which provides the wearer with the same elegance and refinement as Sylvia Trench eludes in Dr No for £1495.00.
Keep it Gold for Goldfinger
Bond girl Jill Masterson played by Shirley Eaton in Goldfinger (1964) is seen wearing a yellow Gold chain bracelet during her first meeting with Bond. This is perhaps a nod to her unlucky fate in the film as she is famously known as the first bond girl to be murdered and with Gold paint.
William May has a wide selection of heavy Gold chains so that everyone can find their perfect Gold accessory. This men’s bracelet is £625.00 but can be worn by anyone to make a bold statement.
The Simple Pearl
Kristina Wayborn plays Magda, the second in command to a jewel smuggler in Octopussy (1983). Her choice of a simple Pearl in this scene encourages everyone that sometimes less can be more. William May has a collection of Pearl earrings, necklaces and bracelets for a refined, understated look. These freshwater cultured pearl stud earrings are almost identical to Magda’s and are only £49.00.
Fall in Love with the Love Knot necklace
Eva Green wears the infamous Algerian Love Knot necklace while playing Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006). Seen as a symbol of James Bond’s love for Lynd, it’s not hard to understand why this jewellery piece has become a fan favourite. For those who love the necklace but want a more wearable look, this White Gold Diamond Set Knot Necklace by William May is the perfect day-to-day piece.
It’s Got to be Yellow Gold
Despite being named after a diamond, Bond Girl Solitaire spends most of the Live and Let Die (1973) film adorned in Gold jewellery. William May jewellers has an extensive selection of yellow gold jewellery pieces, including this unique Graduated Brick Link Necklet that looks similar to the necklace worn by Jane Seymour as Solitaire. Invest in both the look and the quality with this piece by William May for £1035.00.
The Girl with the Gold Rings
Andrea Anders played by Maud Adams in The Man with the Gold Gun (1974) is adorned with beautiful jewellery pieces throughout the film. Below she is pictured wearing a glamorous blue gemstone ring during a scene from the film. To look and feel as fabulous as Andrea Anders, just take a look at the William May jewellery where there are many dazzling rings including this Yellow Gold Sapphire Diamond Cluster Ring for £265.00.
Keeping it Retro
In another scene from The Man With The Gold Gun, Andrea wears these stunning cluster earrings which help to prove that retro is always better! William May’s vintage-inspired Yellow Gold 0.47 Carat Diamond Cluster Stud Earrings allow everyone to imitate the classic Bond girl look and will elevate any outfit for a formal occasion.
The striking gold chain necklace worn by actress Olga Kurylenko as Camille Monte In Quantum of Solace (2008), can be replicated with William May’s heavy gold chain range. When achieving this Bond girl look, the Heavy Flat Curb Necklace for £1695.00 makes for a great match!
