WORLDS LARGEST GEM STORE
Part of Marilyn Monroe’s charm and appeal was her high glamour. The platinum hair, the beautiful couture dresses and, of course, the exquisite jewellery. Who else could sing “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” with so much passion and truth, but at the same time not be in the least bit offensive? Men and women alike loved her, and still do. She created an image that remains fresh and up-to-date in today’s ever changing fashion.
In the film ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’, Marilyn played a young woman whose love for Diamonds and jewellery ruled her life. It was enchanting to watch her face light up in delight as she tried on the Diamond Tiara of one of the characters in the film. Though that may have just been a script and a film, in real life Marilyn loved and enjoyed wearing jewellery. Iconic pictures of Marilyn include her wearing a Diamond encrusted gold ring and a Diamond bangle. Marilyn loved her Emerald star drop earrings as well as her Diamond pendant necklaces.
Some say that when she died, Marilyn only had a very small private jewellery collection. This may be due to the fact that she gave a huge amount of jewellery to Bebe Goddard, a woman she had met at the age of 13 while living at an orphanage, who later became her foster sister.
As well as Diamonds, Marilyn Monroe was synonymous with Pearls.
