Johnny Depp’s jewellery collection takes style notes from Jack Sparrow



Solid silver rings, chunky watches and necklaces galore. It’s rare that Hollywood titan Johnny Depp is spotted without his signature mix of offbeat jewellery.

The skull ring is a staple in Depp’s jewellery box and has been glistening across the actor’s fingers for over three decades. He first ordered a plain silver skull ring from celebrity jeweller Albrizio in the early 1990s. “Jim Jarmusch, Iggy Pop, Jonathan Shaw and Johnny Depp all came in and bought the same ring together,” says Alfred Albrizio, a 3rd generation jeweller. “Iggy Pop ended up putting it on the cover of his Skull Ring album.”At this time, the foursome of friends had established the so-called Death is Certain Club, and the rings denoted membership to the friendship group.

Depp’s Death is Certain ring features a boxy skull with red gems for the eyes and three clear stones in the forehead. The piece is made of silver with a touch of gold that highlights the three (Depp’s favourite number) and the Brave symbols flanking the skull. A question mark sign rests on the opposite side of the ring representing The Brave, a movie directed by Depp in 1997.  Depp would later go on to purchase two more skull rings from Albrizio, one with diamonds and rubies and the other in plain silver which he wore on each hand.

Considered one of the actor’s best-known roles, Depp even had a hand in creating the character of Jack Sparrow from the much-loved Pirates of the Caribbean series, lending some of the rings from his jewellery collection to the fictional pirate. A skull ring embellished with an emerald stone, which Sparrow wears on his index finger, is the property of the actor. You can also see him flaunting the piece on the 1989 Rolling Stone magazine cover. Another of Sparrow’s rings is a gold piece adorned with onyx, three smaller gemstones, and a flower design. The actor even suggested a story for this jewel – the pirate allegedly scrounged it from the widow of a Spanish sailor.

Other rings were designed for the character of Sparrow himself, including an amethyst ring which the pirate wears on his left index finger. It was made in the 17th century and purchased from an antique store specifically for the movie. Unfortunately, the original piece was later stolen from the set, so the producers recreated an exact copy of the ring for the second instalment of the series.

On top of these rings, Depp has a few pieces showcasing the characters he played. Naturally, he has a pirate ring, rumoured to be made by the Oscar and Emmy-winning makeup artist Joel Harlow, who worked alongside the actor on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Aside from Harlow, Depp has several other jeweller friends, one of them being Neil Lane, who also designed a few rings for the Pirates franchise. Later, he would also create another skull ring for Depp’s collection. This time, the skull was cast in gold with amethysts in its eyes and even more purple stones on the band.

While Depp’s signature look involves plenty of rings, he also has a penchant for watches. Take for example Depp’s Corum Bubble Skull 47 watch in sleek stainless steel. Powered by an automatic movement with a 72-hour power reserve, the watch comes complete with a characteristic 8mm domed sapphire crystal glass and a Mexican style skull in white Superluminova for an attention grabbing combination.

The Balón Bleu de Cartier watch in stainless steel is also one of Depp’s go-to timepieces. Complete with a silvered guilloché dial with blued-steel sword-shaped hands and a signature sapphire cabochon winding mechanism, the watch adds a glistening touch of elegance to Depp’s rebel rocker style.

One of the most influential style icons in menswear, Depp’s quirky taste in jewellery elevates his signature look from rugged and artsy to the perfect balance of refinement.


When Johnny Depp was in love with ‘beautiful and brilliant ’ Amber Heard: “ I am a lucky man”




Johnny Depp, who recently won a blockbuster defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, once talked very fondly of her and called himself’ a lucky man’ to have her in his life.

The couple were married for two years. In 2016, Amber filed for divorce and secured a temporary restraining order against Johnny. However, the two were recently involved in a high-profile defamation trial.

During their six-weeks trial that ended on June 1, the couple accused each other of abusive behaviour in their marriage.

The Pirates of The Caribbean star, 59, emerged victorious in his $50m defamation case against Heard after three days of deliberations by a jury, which also handed Heard a partial win in her countersuit.

Following this, an old interview of Johnny has resurfaced over the internet as he says good words for Heard.

In 2015, during Amber’s film The Danish Girl’s premiere, Johnny told Eonline, “We connect on a lot of levels but the first things that really got me was she’s an aficionado of the blues. I would play a song, some old obscure blues song, and she knew what it was. She’s very very literate. She’s a voracious reader as I have been, so we connected on that as well and she’s kind of brilliant and beautiful. I am a lucky man.”

Lily-Rose Depp net worth: What is the fortune of Johnny Depp’s daughter?




Born on May 27, 1999, Lily-Rose Depp is a very normal little girl… except that her parents are international stars: Johnny Deppand Vanessa Paradis. Lily-Rose is followed by her little brother, Jack John Christopher, on April 9th 2002. Their parents are married since June 1998, and symbolize the glamour of the Hollywood couple.

The interpreter of Jack Sparrow in Pirate of the Caribbean and the singer of Joe the Taxi do everything to preserve their children of the flashes of the celebrity. They grow up far from the cameras, between France and the United States.

During her childhood, Lily-Rose Deppshows a certain affinity with music: according to her mother, it is she who would have sung the first notes of the song New Year (released on the album Love Songs in 2013): “My daughter, who was 6 years old at the time, began to hum something sublime. That melody has stuck, along with the first sentence of the text, just as she sang it at 6 years old.” Lily-Rose is therefore credited on the album! In 2012, her parents separated and their divorce was highly publicized.

If one could imagine a career in music, it is towards the cinema that the teenager turns. In the summer of 2014, at the age of 15, she made an appearance in the film Tusk by Kevin Smith. An extra that everyone defines as her first film role.

Dreams of the big screen become a reality in 2016 with the release in September of The Dancer by Stephanie Di Giusto, starring Gaspard Ulliel, Soko and Melanie Thierry, among others. The film is presented a few months earlier in the selection Un certain regard at the Cannes Film Festival. The general public discovered Lily-Rose Depp. The same year, we find the actress on the poster of Planetarium, by Rebecca Zlotowski, where she shares the poster with Natalie Portman.

In 2018, she plays in Les Fauves by Vincent Mariette with Laurent Lafitte and in L’Homme fidèle by Louis Garrel with Laetitia Casta. In 2019, Lily-Rose Deppplays Queen Catherine of Valois in The King by David Michôd, a historical fiction produced by Netflix. She rubs shoulders with the French-American actor Timothée Chalamet, with whom she has been in a relationship since 2018.

In February 2019, Lily-Rose Depp paid a poignant tribute to the artistic director of the house of Chanel, the German couturier Karl Lagerfeld, who had just passed away at the age of 85. “Karl, we love you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are eternal,” wrote in particular the one who became a Chanel muse from the age of sixteen.

What Is Lily-Rose Depp’s Net Worth?

In her short but important career, Lily-Rose has accumulated a fortune of 2 million dollars. She has won several awards such as the Los Angeles Film Award, the Cesar Award, the Lumieres Award, the Romy Schneider Award and the CinEuphoria Award.

In the past, Lily-Rose has suffered from anorexia, and in 2016, she confided in “French Elle” about her followers on social networks who commented on her weight, stating, “It hurts me a lot and makes me depressed, because I spent a lot of energy fighting the disease.” She added, “I have been battling an eating disorder for a long time and I am very proud of the results I have achieved.”

Quentin Tarantino Pushed Back on Studio Head’s Request to Cast Johnny Depp Over Tim Roth in Pulp Fiction




Quentin Tarantino revealed that he had to push back against studio demands to have Johnny Depp as first choice for key Pulp Fiction role.

Pulp Fiction is one of those movies that seems to have the perfect cast in just the right roles. However, a recent viral post has suggested that the actors who made up the iconic ensemble could have been different, and one role, in particular, had director Quentin Tarantino at odds with the head of the studio. The list of potential actors who could have been in line to take on some of the roles in the action movie included Johnny Depp, who was second on Tarantino’s “wish list” for the Tim Roth role of Pumpkin. However, the director was adamant that Roth was who he wanted, even if that went against how the studio saw it.

While appearing on the 2 Bears, 1 Cavepodcast, Tarantino responded to the viral post, which showed the actors he potentially wanted to play key roles, including Vincent and Lance. While the compiled list shows Tarantino’s options and overall preference, the director explained that it was not simply a “wish list” of who he wanted in the movie. He said:

“On the internet there’s a thing floating around about my wish list of the cast of Pulp Fiction, it’s kind of floating around and it’s not. It’s not that, not really. I didn’t know exactly who I wanted to play this part or that part, so I wrote a giant list with a ton of names. I wanted to get them all pre-approved sure and I didn’t know if it’s gonna work out, if I would like vibe with the person or if they would even do a good job but I wanted to get them approved…It’s kind of all over the place but that was kind of the idea, I wanted to be able to explore it and go all over the place but then I’m also really very opinionated.

How Did Johnny Depp Not Get A Role In Pulp Fiction?

As part of Tarantino’s list of possible stars, Johnny Depp appeared as his third choice for Pumpkin and was also a possible inclusion for the role of Lance, which eventually went to Eric Stoltz. When Tarantino put forward his list, it seemed that the head of the studio wanted to know why they would be offering the role of Pumpkin to Roth over Depp. Tarantino also noted that they told him that they would not offer the role to Roth until three others had turned the role down. In response, the director asked them:

‘Do you think Johnny Depp playing the role of Pumpkin in this movie, which is the opening scene and the closing scene that’s it, do you think that will add that much to the box office?’”

As it turns out, they didn’t believe it would add anything in terms of box office success. Still, as Tarantino concluded, many studios at the time thought having a big-name star on board would help if the movie ended up being a critical failure. But, of course, we all know that even without Johnny Depp bookending the film, Pulp Fiction managed to do just fine.
