There has always been an air of mystery surrounding Hollywood stars. What are they really like? Where do they live? Who would be invited to their dream dinner party?
One star in particular that oozes mystery is the late Marilyn Monroe.
The American actress, model and singer, stared in a number of successful films during the 1950s and early 1960s, such as ‘The Seven Year Itch’, ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’, ‘Some Like It Hot’, ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’ and ‘How to Marry a Millionaire’.
But how much do we really know about the Her, other than the fact that she loved pearls.
Next month a selection of Marilyn Monroe’s private love letters, mementos and documents, never seen before, will be auctioned in Beverly Hills.
Letters to Marilyn from Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Jane Russell, Joe DiMaggio – her second husband, and Arthur Miller – her third husband, are amongst the 300 items going under the hammer.
Do you have a love letter at home?
Perhaps it says:
‘I love you and want to be with you’ – DiMaggio to Monroe
‘My Darling, My Darling.’ – Monroe to Miller
If you aren’t good with words then we at Coleman Douglas Pearls have the perfect solution for you…Our Morse Code Collection.
Made up of pearl bracelets and pearl necklaces, each piece spells out ‘I love you’ in code.
.. // .-.. / – / …- /. // ..- (I Love U)
Perhaps you have another message you would like secretly included into a necklace or bracelet? If this is the case make an appointment with our Pearl Guru, Chrissie Douglas, and start chatting through the designs.
