‘The name’s Bond, James Bond’
One of the most well known lines in the world, and currently the hot topic of many J.B fans as ‘Spectre’ has finally arrived at The Big Screen.
The British Secret Service agent, known for his sophisticated style, cool gadgets, and daring international exploits was once again pushed to the limits in saving the world while still finding time for ‘romance’. So let me ask you one thing…what do you imagine a Bond Girl to be like?
Elegant, beautiful, stylish, confident, sassy… the list goes on. Therefore, it didn’t shock our Pearl Company when low and behold one of the Bond girls wore Tahitian pearl studs.
The pearl studs were gracing the ear lobes of the stunning Monica Bellucci.
Seen here complementing her black ensemble, the pearls did what they do best…take a back seat while enhancing their wearers natural beauty.
Fancy a pair of your own? Pop into our Pearl Beauchamp Place Showroom, located at 42 Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge, London, SW3 1NX, where our pearl guru will help you find the perfect metallic hue to suit your complexion.
Tahitian pearls are known for their mesmerizing metallic colour and deep lustre which lures you in.
A favorite of not only Bond girls but also Bond himself, Pierce Brosnan was photographed wearing his tahitian pearl thong necklace on a tropical beach…where would you wear yours?
Daniel Craig, another pearl connoisseur, happened to meet one of our clients at the premier who commented on how beautiful her multi strand pearl necklace was. ‘…I love wear them all the time, especially as ‘James Bond’, Daniel Craig, complimented me on them!’ – Kit (Client)
One question usually asked is, why do Tahitian pearls have natural metallic colours and other pearls, such as south sea pearls, do not?
The answer lies with the host shell. Tahitian pearls are created in black lipped oysters which produce nacre which always has a hint of grey. These oysters are found in Mexico, Panama and French Polynesia, several places that James Bond has visited.
So to leave you with one of our favorite James Bond quotes…
Bond: “My dear girl, there are some things that just aren’t done. Such as, drinking Dom Perignon ’53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs.”
