Eva Green shone in unique Montblanc diamonds during “The Golden Compass” World Premiere in London's Leicester Square recently. Most recently celebrated for her portrayal of Vesper Lynd in “Casino Royale”, the highly acclaimed actress has subsequently been presented with the Rising Star Award from BAFTA in 2007 and has promised to become one of Hollywood's most precious gems.

Eva Green's Dentelle set consisted of a sophisticated necklace in luxurious white gold, featuring diamonds with a carat weight of 6.11ct and a central rare Montblanc diamond - a unique patented cut, the result of eight years of research - of 6.15ct, D colour, and IF clarity and worth US$ 2.1million (£1.14 million). Eva's ethereal beauty was further accentuated by the playful dancing of the sparkling white gold earrings featuring diamonds (total carat weight 1.80 ct) - and a Montblanc diamond of 2.15ct and 2.12 ct per earring - D colour, IF clarity with a value of US$ 750,000 (£415.000).

“It is a great pleasure and privilege for Montblanc to host Miss Green at the global premiere of The Golden Compass movie,” said Lutz Bethge, CEO of Montblanc SA. “This evening will celebrate the magnificent synergy and mutual admiration between the world-class artistic talents and cultural endeavours of Miss Green and the craftsmanship of Montblanc jewellers. We are delighted that once again she has chosen to wear masterpieces by Montblanc, as she has done on many occasions since her first appearance as a presenter at the at Academy Awards in February 2007.”

New Line Cinema presents The Golden Compass, an epic fantasy adventure starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, newcomer Dakota Blue Richards, Eva Green and Daniel Craig. Based on Philip Pullman's best-selling and award-winning first novel in the His Dark Materials trilogy, the film is adapted and directed by Academy Award nominee Chris Weitz. The Golden Compass cast Eva Green as Serafina Pekkala - the Queen of the Witches of Lake Enara - thereby continuing her tradition ofcrafting mysterious roles and keeping her admirers intrigued by both her external beauty and internal nurturing soul.

The Golden Compass opens in Australia on Boxing Day, December 26, 2007.
