Is it just our Pearl Team or are you seeing Mr Darcy/007 lookalikes everywhere?!
Obviously with Ascot happening it is hardly surprising that well suited and booted gentlemen keep being spotted waltzing around every street corner but, is it just Ascot or is it a trend?
As it is Fathers’ Day tomorrow we thought we’d dedicate this Blog to all the Stylish men out there, and where better to start than with Mr Bond…James Bond.
A fun fact to know about the famous Mr Bond….He likes PEARLS!
Now when I say ‘He’ I should really mention that I mean ‘they’ as over the years we’ve seen several actors taking on the role. Let’s look at the 2 most recent Bonds, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.
‘I favour pearls on screen and in my private life. ‘ – Grace Kelly
It seems that both Brosnan and Craig agree with Grace Kelly’s quote above as both gentlemen have been seen wearing pearl jewellery on screen and off.
Brosnan was famously photographed for Vanity Fair wearing his Tahitian Pearl and leather necklace, while Craig was shot several times throughout the film Skyfall wearing his pearl cufflinks. Also at a premiere Mr Craig happened to complement one of our clients on the CDP pearls she was wearing…
‘Chrissie thank you so much for all your help in choosing my beautiful pearls. I love wear them all the time, especially as ‘James Bond’, Daniel Craig, complimented me on them! – Kit’
Fancy thanking your Father this Fathers’ Day with accessories similar to James Bond’s?
Our freshwater pearl cufflinks are almost identical to the ones Daniel Craig wore when trying to save the ‘damsel in distress’ in Skyfall. Set on sterling silver a white freshwater pearl, these cufflinks will go with plain or detailed shirts making them an easy choice for those rushed week day mornings.
Perhaps your Bond, I mean father, is more laid back and would prefer a leather and Tahitian pearl pedant like Pierce Brosnan’s.
Make an appointment with our Pearl Company to choose the Tahitian pearl and leather colour you’d like for the necklace.
