History:
Hoop earrings were made ever popular by Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Jayne Mansfield, and even the 1959 release of Barbie. As the classic hoop became wildly popular, as did the use of pearls, especially in the 40s & 50s. Always known as a symbol of wealth and nobility, pearls today are considered the foundation for every woman's jewelry wardrobe. Pearls were indeed a necessity for any woman. During their honeymoon in 1954 in Japan, Joe DiMaggio gave Marilyn Monroe a 16-inch strand of 44 akoya pearls, which fastened with Mikimoto’s signature gold clasp. Every, and any, Hollywood star was seen in pretty, pearls, especially Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. Combine the two, and voila!

Stay in the Loupe!
