4 Film Icons to Inspire Your Jewellery Style

Adapted from article by Jessica Vince (December 11, 2017)

In the words of Audrey Hepburn, “Life is a party. Dress like it.” As the festive season approaches, it's a mindset we can all get behind.

Stars of the silver screen, including Hepburn, certainly knew how to master after-dark attire thanks, in part, to sumptuous jewels. And the proof is in the pudding: decades on, their style continues to captivate, with women around the world still being influenced by old Hollywood glamour.

So with a flurry of fancy invites mounting up, who better to turn to for party inspiration. Are you an Elizabeth Taylor devotee? Or more of a Monroe? Take a trip back in time to find your jewellery muse, then shine on…

1. The regal Grace Kelly

Known for her classic and understated style, Grace Kelly became the epitome of Fifties elegance. She quit acting to become Princess of Monaco, giving her access to the most incredible jewellery collection. Indeed, it was hard for the star to look anything less than regal, but rather than drenching herself in diamonds, she was a master of minimalism.

Royalty or not, you can follow suit by choosing a smattering of delicate soft-hued pieces, and you need look no further than this stunning new release in 925 Sterling Silver with a 3 carat solitaire stone. Pair with an elegant party dress and the result is fairytale-worthy.

2. The bombshell Marilyn Monroe

When it comes to Hollywood icons they don't get more glamorous than Marilyn. Famous for her signature peroxide crop, crimson lipstick and feminine curves, the star looked the part whether she was on the silver screen or singing for the President.

Having diamonds as your best friend certainly helps. Take a cue from Marilyn's old-school style and add a pair of suitably sparkling 925 Sterling Silver halo earrings to your oeuvre; we've got our eye on this vintage-inspired design for capturing the spirit of a bygone era.
