It really was a song of ice and fire last night as Australian actress Milly Alcock arrived in London’s Leicester Square for the UK premiere of the upcoming television series, House of the Dragon.

The star picked a suite of diamond jewels from the Maison, including the Atomique necklace from The Alchemist of Light high jewellery collection layered over the Arpeggia choker. She also worked a pair of Enchanted Lotus stud earrings and four different diamond rings, all in white gold and diamonds.

The Atomique necklace (which is worth £115,000) has a design inspired by a diamond’s crystalline structure, and is composed of a pavé-set white gold choker and a detachable row of round brilliant diamonds of differing sizes. Meanwhile, the icy diamond rings on Alcock’s fingers included De Beers’ Arpeggia ring, a triple row of white gold, micro-pavé diamonds and prong-set round brilliants which was inspired by the delicate sounds of Beethoven’s famous Moonlight Sonata.

The House of the Dragon series is a prequel to HBO’s much-lauded Game of Thrones, set approximately 200 years beforehand, and tells the story of the Targaryen family (think of it as an ancient Succession, but with more bloodshed and fire-breathing dragons in the mix). It was adapted from George R.R. Martin’s novel, Fire & Blood, and is set to air in the UK later this month.
