History:
Tassels date back ages ago, from Egyptian headdresses, to King Louis XIV, and his French Royal Court, and were always used as a symbol of either status, luxury, or luck. Tassels adorned the costumes of European royalty and their residences, as well as the nipple pasties and costumes of Burlesque performers and Showgirls. Pearls have been around since the dawn of time, from Cleopatra to the Roman Empire. Always known as a symbol of wealth and nobility, pearls today are considered the foundation for every woman's jewelry wardrobe. A pioneer of pearls, it was Mikimoto who introduced the industry of cultured pearls in the 1920s. When World War II hit, it devastated the cultured pearl market in Japan. 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.
