Book
The Pearl Necklace

Product Number: 575834
PRODUCT DETAILS
A pearl necklace was once the first piece of serious jewellery owned by a young woman but has also been celebrated as an erotic symbol and as a fashion statement.

A classic, the pearl necklace has offered an irresistible invitation to subversive reinterpretation through the centuries. Renaissance queens, maharajas, First Ladies, and starlets from the Golden Age of Hollywood to the present have all made the pearl necklace part of their wardrobes, each wearing it after the fashion of the times or at their own whim.

In The Pearl Necklace, publisher, Assouline and famous jeweller, Mikimoto explore the legacy of these lustrous strands through fine art and fashion in a luxurious volume that reminds us why the pearl necklace has long been the ultimate object of fascination and fantasy.

The Pearl Necklace features:
  • Hardback, 300 pages.
  • Written by jewellery historian Vivienne Becker - an award-winning journalist and author of several books on the history of jewellery design. Based in London, Becker is a contributing editor to Financial Times’s How to Spend It magazine.
  • The pearl necklace is celebrated through the ages and among the famous who have worn one.
  • Over 200 illustrations.
  • Published by Assouline.
