Dior and Pearls!

I still love this splendid creation from John Galliano for Dior! It's from his couture collection a couple of seasons ago, but just like pearls, some things never go out of fashion!

(From Vintage Treasures 09)

A gown like Mr. Galliano's deserves the loveliest of accessories, no? How about something as decadent as the pearls here to frame your face! It's from the late 1940's or early 1950's and was probably made for Dior by Henry Shreiner. It's a massive piece with tiers of silvery-white glass baroque pearls and Austrian marquis and chaton crystals. I love the little baubles sparkling the tip of the extension chain. And don't worry about what to wear on your lovely ears, as it comes with the perfect matching chandelier earrings!
