He’s been fighting arch villains and saving Her Majesty’s government  in some 22 films over 50 years. And by his side have been gorgeous Bond girls who, in at least eight films (including the soon-to-be-released “Skyfall”), wore Swarovski jewels. This Queen Cobra Double Ring makes its debut in “Skyfall” on actress Bérénice Marlohe, who continues the tradition of Bond’s very beautiful co-stars. (No wonder Swarovski also picked her to star in the brand’s fa fall/winter ad campaign.) To create this dramatic ring and other pieces in the 007 jewelry collection, Swarovski turned to another Brit, designer Stephen Webster.

Actually, in celebration of James Bond’s 50th anniversary, Swarovski is premiering jewelry inspired by scenes and objects in such classics as “Dr. No.,” “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” “The Man with the Golden Gun,” “Octopussy,” “Casino Royale” etc.
