More about Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast at Tiffany's Pearl Necklace ...
As Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Audrey Hepburn's character had a penchant for gazing into the windows of the Fifth Avenue jeweler at all times of day and night. A prototype of the pearl necklace she prized is featured in the new exhibition "Pearls" at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The show devotes a large section to the decorative use of pearls, with famous pieces like this necklace on view. Other pearls worn by celebrities or royalty include a pearl-and-diamond brooch given in 1843 to Queen Victoria of England by her husband, Prince Albert.
Pearls have been worn in both jewelry and clothing since antiquity, but until recently they were the province of the very rich. Sumptuary laws in ancient Rome as well as certain kingdoms of Europe into the 17th century prevented the lower social classes from wearing pearls. It wasn't until the modern pearl cultivation industry took off in the 1900s that the lovely orbs became an affordable luxury.
Then Coco Chanel made pearls chic in the 1920s and Audrey made them glamorous again four decades later. As worn by Barbara Bush in the 1980s, they seemed conservative, but with fashion's neo-'80s revival pearls may be set to make a big comeback.
