The Inspiration: Until the 1920s, real pearls were a luxury item. Early imitation wax pearls didn’t last a season. But, when glass based “indestructible” pearls were introduced, they were beautiful and lasting and the average woman could afford them. Fashion designers such as Lanvin and Chanel accessorized everything with a rope of pearls. Pearls are worn in the photos of iconic actresses of the stage and silent movies. Marion Davies, Theda Bara, Louise Brooks, Lily Elsie and Greta Garbo display the fashion of pearls in their movies and publicity photos.
