It is well known that Marilyn love expensive jewelry and was very fond of glistening diamonds and sapphire jewelry, worn either separately or combined together. She was a trendsetter for everything from fashion to accessories. Men and women alike just adored Marilyn and would copy just about everything she would do.
When it came to her jewelry choices she was all about the glitz, sparkle and glam. One of Marilyn's most famous pieces of jewelry happened to be a gorgeous platinum and diamond wedding band that was given to her by Joe DiMaggio, the famous baseball player, on their wedding in 1954.
Marilyn was also given a beautiful pearl necklace by DiMaggio during their honeymoon to Japan. This was a stunning 16 inch strand of pearls containing 44 matched pearls by the famous jewelry Mikimoto. It is said that Marilyn gave the necklace to friend Paula Strasberg. Paula's daughter Susan Strasberg, the actress, returned it to Mikimoto in 1988.
Marylin's style and grace made her a perfect model for many beautiful pieces of jewelry which can be seen in her movies.
