this onePearls and rhinestones almost always work well together. And as many of you many know, I love the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the fabulous wardrobe, designed by Hubert de Givenchy, of the Holly Golightly character. My favorite costume is the black dress and pearl necklace she wears in the film’s opening scene. So, it’s no surprise that I have a few looks that echo that sumptuous necklace.

IMG_6160Isn’t this a fabulous statement necklace? And this is so simple to create. Start with a pearl collar style necklace. This one is available on Chairish here.

IMG_6160The next brooch I used is a gold star fish shape wrapped with rhinestones and a pearl. You may recognize this brooch from Part 1 of When Brooches & Necklaces Collide from Monday.

IMG_6162Below you can see how each brooch was secured from the back.

IMG_6164 IMG_6163The next look is one that I have shared before and it is worth repeating and including in this series. Every time I wear this combination I get numerous compliments! People stop me on the street and and ask about this necklace! This is my replica of the famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s necklace!

finalStart with a multi strand pearl necklace. I have a fabulous vintage Carolee 4 strand necklace that works really well.

1In addition to the multi strand necklace your will also need a fabulous brooch and another single strand of pearls.

what your needNext, secure the brooch to the center of the single strand of pearls.

6Finally, layer the pearls with the brooch attached into the multi strand necklace.
