Marilyn Monroe, the epitome of female beauty, has been a significant inspiration for our designer who is an ardent fan of the fashion from Marilyn’s iconic era. Hence, it was essential to integrate a showgirl look, influenced by Marilyn, into the collection, radiating glamour and old Hollywood luxury.
Incorporated in the setting of the necklace and the body is a fragment from a stocking worn by Marilyn Monroe herself. This fragment was acquired from the Shaw Family Archives, Ltd. Limited Collection, originating from a stocking sold at a Christie’s auction in London on December 17, 2002. This stocking traces back to the time when she was residing at Parkside House with her then-husband Arthur Miller, during the making of “The Prince and the Showgirl” with Laurence Olivier.
This unique piece is accompanied by an Elegant Curiosities certificate of authenticity.

The body piece showcases a beautiful cascade of sewn-together lace, with plentiful sterling silver beads and gray and cream freshwater pearls meticulously sewn onto the piece, enhancing its luxurious and glamorous appeal.
