>Norma’s Crystal Necktie


Norma Shearer

Shearer was one of cinema’s feminist pioneers. An exemplar of sophisticated [1930’s] woman-hood, she explored love and sexuality with a frank honesty. She was one of the first actresses to make it look chic to be single and not a virgin on screen.

I gave this sweet crystal necktie her name because I could really see her wearing it, especially with the outfit she is pictued in here. The necklace has a nice gucci chain combined with a heavy curb chain dripping from the centerpiece, a crystal made from vintage chandalier glass.

You can see this necklace and several more like it here and also here. You can see Norma in The Women with Joan Crawford, The Divorcee, A Free Soul and Marie Antoinette. All are available on Netflix.
