The Most Beautiful Women and their Jewellery

When I think of some of the most beautiful women in the world and their jewellery I think of women like Elizabeth Taylor & Coco Chanel. These women are remembered not only for their style and beauty but also for their passion for jewellery.

“I’ve never thought of my jewellery as trophies. I’m here to take care of it and to love it, for we are only temporary custodians of beauty.”

Elizabeth Taylor wore some of the most beautiful jewels ever seen on a woman who wasn’t a queen or part of a country's ruling elite. She loved jewellery and was rarely seen without any. Most of her jewellery was gifted to her by one of her husbands or by one of her many admirers. She owned items that are now famous in their own right. At a recent auction examples from her collection were snapped up by collectors, museums and celebrities only highlighting the lasting value of a beautiful piece of timeless jewellery.

Coco Chanel has been credited, not only for her fashion creations and style, but also for bringing costume jewellery to the mass market. Coco Chanel was rarely seen without wearing an item of jewellery. Her jewellery ‘lifted’ outfits and gave women a chance to make the same outfit look very different when worn with a statement pieces of jewellery. She had a passion for pearls and loved the contrast of the white or cream pearls against the black of her clothes…her favorite colour. Chunky jewellery, red lipsticks, touches of sparkle, bejewelled accessories and a splash of her now iconic perfume were her lasting legacy.

Many beautiful women today have adopted their own style of jewellery. Adele favours the classic, cluster style of earrings which sits neatly on the ear. Jennifer Aniston is often seem wearing her favorite, simple leaf pendant.
