Marilyn Monroe and her Akoya Pearl Choker

Akoya Pearl Styles - Marylin Monroe

Marilyn Monroe, the pinnacle of Hollywood glitz, captivated hearts through her various iconic styles. Among them were pearls which played a major role in distinguishing her captivating appeal. In 1954, her second husband, Joe DiMaggio presented Marilyn an Akoya cultured pearl necklace on their honeymoon in Japan.

The choker-type display highlights the exquisite quality of the Japanese pearls, which are held together by an intricate clasp. ‘Akoya’ pearls are saltwater-farmed pearls grown from the Akoya oyster. They have a classic round form and a lovely shine to them, similar to our “HESTIA” necklace which has been crafted carefully to capture the essence of timeless beauty, allowing you to effortlessly elevate any look and radiate elegance just like Monroe herself.

Audrey Hepburn

“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades,” Audrey Hepburn, who was and still is a symbol of timeless beauty, once said. She perfected her signature style in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which included a multi-strand pearl necklace, diamond hair clip, huge sunglasses, and a black dress, pushing both herself and the pearl jewelry industry to popularity. She was known to not only wear pearls on-screen but off-screen as well.

Her simple yet extraordinary pearl fashion style was seen as classy and sophisticated, sparking a new fashion trend throughout the world. Just like Audrey Hepburn, Pearls.jp understands the essence of grace and sophistication. Our “Elizabeth Necklace” embodies the same timeless allure that Hepburn embraced in her pearl jewelry styles. 

Coco Chanel and Layering of Pearl Necklaces

Coco Chanel’s, an icon of visionary fashion, unique designs profoundly changed the fashion scene. Rather than the conventional formality of wearing genuine pearls, she brought a new style combination of wearing pearls. She would prefer to mix and style authentic and imitation pearl strands together. This extremely innovative and creative approach to pearl jewelry style is still suitable today.

Chanel’s house released The Perles Swing Set, a luxury jewelry collection named after the designer and her love of pearls, in 2014. A beautiful selection of South Sea, Tahitian, and freshwater pearls dedicated to the dazzling gem and this legend lives on. Pearls.jp shares the passion for pearls and aims to capture her spirit through our delicately crafted pearl necklace “THEROS.” 

Princess Diana

Diana was the people’s princess, who had a blend of traditional style, charisma, and a caring manner. She acquired a passion for pearls after receiving a single strand as a present from her parents, which she wore nearly every day. Her most well-known pearl necklace, however, was a stunning seven-strand choker featuring a sapphire and diamond centerpiece. It was a special pearl necklace piece given to her on her wedding day by Queen Elizabeth. The seven-strand choker spawned several similar designs, inspiring women all across the world to wear the Princess Diana-inspired pearl choker look.

As an American movie star-turned-princess, Grace Kelly enthralled the world as the pinnacle of elegance and grace.

Kelly’s incredible journey brought her from a successful acting career in Hollywood to becoming a princess after marrying Prince Rainier of Monaco, from whom she received many exquisite presents including a stunning pearl-and-diamond necklace and bracelet set.

This beautiful jewelry set became one of her most treasured possessions, representing the eternal love and glitz that distinguished her life as a princess.
