Judge the Jewels: Florence Pugh’s Tantalizing Tiffany Tassels




The sighting: Actress Florence Pugh attended the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 13th Governors Awards in a white and gold Victorian Beckham gown and an incredible necklace that I covet with my whole heart.

The jewels: Florence Pugh is wearing one major statement piece – the necklace that I will spend most of this post rhapsodizing about – along with a few subtle pieces of accent jewelry.

The necklace is a beautiful piece in yellow gold, with overlapping rope-textured swags that form a full circle of articulated tassels. I haven’t managed to track down the specific piece that Pugh wore, but it appears to be very similar to this vintage 18K yellow gold Tiffany & Co. tassel necklace currently for sale by New Orleans-based M.S. Rau for $34,500.

In addition to the necklace, the actress is wearing what looks like an assortment of smallish diamond studs, an understated septum ring, and a couple of rings on her fingers as well. According to the tags on her stylist’s Instagram, the night’s jewelry is all Tiffany & Co., but the septum ring appears to be a favorite personal piece by Maria Tash that Pugh has worn for many previous appearances.

What do we think? We’re here to talk about jewelry, but I also feel the need to declare my hatred for this dress. Ms. Pugh’s couture feels like the formal version of the gown that Ariel makes out of salvaged beach trash before she meets Prince Eric in the beginning of The Little Mermaid. I’m sure it’s very expensive, but it looks like she rolled around in a bag of garment remnants and upholstery trimmings.

That said: this necklace still goes well with it, because this necklace is magic.

I’ve rarely met a gold tassel I didn’t want to immediately throw on and shimmy around in, and this glorious wreath of tassels is no exception. It’s a beautiful piece, with luscious texture and compelling movement. I might wish the necklace was one inch longer? It rides a little high on her neck.

But besides that, it’s perfection.

The septum ring adds a fun dash of edge to the look, and the diamond studs aren’t an especially thrilling choice, but I’ll take a little sparkle over a bare lobe any day.

Judgement: 13/10 for a truly spectacular necklace in an outfit that does not delight me as a whole. (Yes, I love the necklace SO MUCH that it carries this look above a 10/10.)

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
