Welcome to my first recurring series: Screen Gems
One of my most favorite TV and movie story lines involving jewelry, is the Empress Carlotta’s Necklace episode from the Dick Van Dyke Show. Rob buys Laura a replica of Empress Carlotta’s Necklace, and presents it to her as a surprise gift. She hates it. I first saw this episode sometime in the mid 1990’s and thought this necklace was fabulous and wondered, where could I get one like it? And I still love this necklace. Thanks Rob and Laura for the inspiration! Below are just some of my favorite statement necklaces for spring. From the top: ca & lou, Lizzie Fortuno, Vionnet, Mawi and Van Cleef & Arpels.
