Tune in every Tuesday at 6PM ET for Be Jeweled with Bill and Connie for the best new jewelry, designers, and style ideas!
Mention the name Holly Golightly and we’re already dreaming of that iconic movie scene of an early sunday morning spent window-shopping at 5th avenue’s Tiffany & Co. The cult-classic Breakfast At Tiffany’s didn’t just seal our love for the actress Audrey Hepburn but it also sparked our love affair with the styles of jewelry she wore in the film. We’re channeling the look of this favorite fictional It Girl with lots of pearls, diamonds, and pizzazz.
1. The Essentials
One might remember in the film that Hepburn’s character absolutely adores Tiffany’s and diamonds but she feels they are too mature for her yet. In lieu of those accessories, her go-to style is pearls. Long strands of pearls, button pearl earrings, and pearl bracelets are the classically, chic look that we want to copy. This Cultured Freshwater Pearl Studs, Bracelet and Necklace Set from Imperial Pearls by Josh Bazar will have us set up to trapse around town with the frivolously free spirit of Ms Golightly and command some serious attention with their effortless beauty.
2. Extra Party Pomp
For special occasions like a party or night out on the town we will want to up the ante of our accessories a bit more. This “Unforgettable” Layered Necklace boasts five graduated strands of simulated pearls to give our outfit that romantic vintage feel. Give this necklace a focal point by adding some extra shine in the form of a removeable brooch. This Clear Crystal Brooch is perfect for this inspired style.
3. The Jewelry Makes The Woman
The perfect accompaniment to the many little black dresses that Holly Golightly dones through the film is big and glamorous jewelry. Each different piece completely revamps her outfit to feel fresh and unique and displays her bold personality too. This Goldtone Chain-Link Tassel Necklace is a throwback design, along with the chandelier style, to the enchanting looks that her character is popularizing again today. Pair this necklace with your favorite LBD for that quintessential Breakfast At Tiffany’s outfit.
4. Sealed With Diamonds
We don’t want to spoil the ending for anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of seeing this film before but let’s just say we think there are diamonds in Holly Golighty’s near future after all. We’re sealing the deal for how much we love her untamed style with the antique look of these two rings from Absolute and Audrey Hepburn Collection. The simplicity of the setting with the Pavé Vintage-Inspired Ring is perfect for a petite hand. The Blue and Clear Crystal Pear-Shaped Ring brings depth and cool elegance to any look.
