Paspaley Film Goes on a Lunar Lit Adventure to Launch its Moonlight Collection

The film was directed by Lester Jones from Clockwork Films and features Australian US actor Leila George.

Australian luxury jewelry brand Paspaley has launched a new campaign created in collaboration with 72andSunny that the brand describes as celebrating its “passion for adventure.”

The centerpiece of the launch is a campaign film “Moonlight,” directed by Lester Jones from Clockwork Films and features Australian US actor Leila George.

“Moonlight reflects the shared ethereal beauty of Paspaley Pearls and the moon but also the energetic connection between the two,” said Paspaley Creative Director, Christine Salter.


“The collection was inspired by the moon’s energy and its role in the creation of Paspaley Pearls. The dramatic tropical tides of the Kimberley are governed by the moon, and Paspaley Pearls rely on these tides to deliver rich nutrition to the oysters that mother them. The result is luminescent treasures given to us from both the ocean and the sky.”

The pièce de résistance in the Moonlight collection is the Lunar Eclipse Necklace, the most complex design Paspaley says that it has produced to date. A combination of 41 Australian South Sea pearls, 57 Australian white crystal opals, 752 white diamonds, one rock crystal and mother of pearl – all set in white gold- and taking more than a thousand hours of painstaking labour to construct.

Genevieve Hoey, 72andSunny Creative Lead, “It’s an honour to create Moonlight, our fifth campaign modernising the Paspaley brand’s appeal for a new generation of luxury shoppers. The Kimberley is a mystical location. To shoot there at night for the first time was breathtaking.



Cinematic visuals from Lester Jones, a evocative track by US artist L’Freaq, Leila George draped in exquisitely glowing Paspaley pieces – Moonlight is an ethereal film that challenges traditional perceptions of pearls.”

The entire Moonlight collection launch weaves a sensual story across every touchpoint of the Paspaley brand experience, from inflight media and online films to digital, large scale outdoor and in-store POS, featuring collection stills by photographer Nick Leary.
