Jewelry Stars: 3 Classic Style Icons We Love

As fellow jewelry enthusiasts, it's a mindset we know our fans share.

It's no surprise that their style lives on and continues to captivate both style buffs and jewelry mavens alike. Although we would never suggest outright duplication, there's nowhere better to turn for style inspiration than Old Hollywood glamour. 

Are you entranced by the decadence of Elizabeth Taylor's signature jewels? Do you swoon over the smoldering fashions of Marilyn Monroe? Take a trip back in time to find your jewelry muse. Here's how to shine on: 

Elizabeth Taylor - Exquisite Taste and Jewelry Collection to Match

You can't talk jewelry without a nod to the ever-gleaming Elizabeth Taylor. Her passion for jewelry and romance earned her a spot in the gemstone hall of fame -- her personal collection of love tokens and self-gifted treats weighed in at a whopping $116 million dollars at Christie's auction house. She liked her gems to make a statement. Make like Liz and wear Kateopia's Faye Halo Ring as a statement piece, keeping the rest of your look simple. Now you can focus on collecting romances.

Grace Kelly -  Jewelry Fit For a Princess

jewelry, Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly was a fifties icon known for her understated elegance. She was admired for her mystery, glamour, and poise, quickly becoming one of the highest paid and well-loved actresses in Hollywood. During a photo shoot for the United States Delegation Committee at the Cannes Film Festival in France, she met Prince Rainier III of Monaco. The public ate up their very public courtship, a true fairytale romance. She married Prince Rainier in 1956 becoming Princess of Monaco. Grace gave up her acting career and American citizenship, dedicating herself fully to her new role. You might think that retiring as an A-list actress to become a royal might up your decadence game, but Grace Kelly remained a master of minimalism.

Shop Kateopia's Royal Collection, full of exquisite pieces any regal darling would love. Pair one statement piece with a floor-length majestic frock for a look worthy of any princess. 

 Marilyn Monroe - Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend

You can't mention silver screen jewelry icons without mentioning one of the most glamorous women of all time - Marilynn Monroe.  Her signature blonde curls, bright red lips, and curvy silhouette, scream Old Hollywood. Take a lesson from her old-school style and add one sparkling jewelry piece to spice up your outfit. Kateopia has plenty of sparkle to choose from, but pair our Clementine Jewelry Set with a long red dress and lips to match. Get ready for a vintage-inspired look worthy of Classic Hollywood.

Until next time glamazons, XOXO
