Our Favorite Signature Jewelry Pieces from the Big Screen
06.25.14 by Mandy
As we’ve learned from Beverly Hills Pawn, it’s not easy to find a signature piece of jewelry. After all, it has to be simple enough to be worn everyday but unusual enough that everyone else isn’t wearing. That’s why we decided to give recognition to those characters from the silver screen who really know how to do a signature piece right.
The Glamorous Side of Pawn
A piece of jewelry that looks as good with a vintage cocktail dress as it does with a t-shirt and jeans is hard to find, but Carrie’s “Carrie” necklace fits the bill. We love it for being affordable and a piece that no one else she knows would wear, but it loses points because it’s a little too literal of an interpretation of the phrase “signature piece."
Diamonds are great, but for some gals, they just aren’t colorful enough. That’s just one reason that the fabulous Miss Piggy prefers to wear a gorgeous, deep purple amethyst ring as part of her everyday wardrobe. Also, she probably doesn’t want to buy a diamond ring for herself, because it’s really Kermit who should be picking out that particular piece of jewelry.
You can tell by the way Tony uses his walk, that he’s a woman’s man with no time to talk. Luckily he does have time to figure out the perfect manly piece of jewelery, and he also has time to pick out shirts that show off his St. Christopher medallion — and a legendary swath of chest hair — to best advantage.
Typically a lady will let a signature piece speak for itself, but not Regina. Instead, this mean girl demands that friends don't wear hoop earrings because it’s “her thing,” and we're guessing she doesn't let them wear "R" necklaces either. Some gals might have been hesitant to lay down the law about something as basic as hoop earrings, but Regina isn’t afraid to be a little unreasonable every now and again.
Rose DeWitt Bukater from Titanic
Rose only wore her signature blue diamond necklace a couple of times, but she was decidedly averse to the idea of anyone else getting a chance to wear it. A normal person would have handed down the Heart of the Ocean to the sweet granddaughter who had been her caretaker for years, but not Rose. She chose to throw her priceless necklace into the ocean — doting progeny be damned. And here we thought Regina George was the mean girl.
Be sure to watch REELZ for more signature jewelry pieces in the all-new episodes of BHP airing Wednesdays at 9p ET/PT. We'll be watching and hoping that one day we'll get to be one of the lucky few who get Yossi's personalized help in finding their new favorite piece of everyday jewelry.
