Do you dream of living that ‘lifestyle’? Well… now’s your opportunity to get one step closer.
Next year Bonhams will be auctioning off a huge variety of items that once belonged to the late Lauren Bacall. Eight Henry Moore sculptures, a few David Hockney and Pablo Picasso paintings, and a variety of breathtaking jewellery…pearl jewellery.
This is an auction not to be missed!
Throughout her life she collected a stunning collection of jewels that would make every girl go weak at the knees.
Having starred in ‘How to Marry a Millionaire’ alongside Marilyn Monroe, and ‘Designing Woman’ with Gregory Peck, she graced the same Red Carpet as several other iconic ladies, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly, to mention a few!
Known for her husky voice and cat-like green eyes, Bacall, like so many other Hollywood celebrities of the time was a keen pearl girl.
What is it about pearls that makes them so irresistible to Hollywood celebrities?
Perhaps their timeless appeal?
The ability to go with everything? …both good reasons I’ll grant you, but I recon it’s the pearls ability to enhance the wearers natural beauty, for who wouldn’t want to look their best on The Red Carpet!
How do they do this?
A pearl is made up of many layers of nacre. When light touches a pearl it gets refracted around the layers before being reflected out, giving a soft up light onto the face above…genius!
