Judge the Jewels: Molly Sims Wears $1M Dollars of Diamonds in Her Hair

Most necklaces-as-headwear are draped across the forehead or over the head like a diadem. Not this one.

The sighting: Model and actress Molly Sims walked the Met Gala red carpet in a voluminous pink gown that was quite lovely, but not nearly as exciting as the spectacular diamond necklace she wore in her hair. (Flip through the the Instagram post above for the full view of the necklace.)

The jewels: The glorious necklace in Sims’s hair is a 120 carat, $1 million  diamond necklace from Ring Concierge. She accented the look with additional Ring Concierge jewelry: two pairs of Pear + Marquise Cluster earrings (16 TCW and 4 TCW, respectively), a Baguette Crossover ring (2.8 TCW) and a Baguette Lace ring (2.8 TCW).

Nicole of Ring Concierge was kind enough to document her Met Gala adventure in the RC Instagram Story, so her audience (myself included) had the pleasure of following along as Nicole and her team selected the necklace, secured it in Sims’s hair, helped keep the look together during transport to Met Gala, and then were accidently trapped on the Met Gala red carpet when their van abandoned them. It was a wild ride, literally and figuratively.

The trends: If I had a wedding or a prom coming up, I would already be trying to source a necklace to put in my hair.

What do we think? I love this. It’s so unexpected and glamorous; I gasped when I first saw the back of Sims’s head.

Most necklaces-as-headwear are draped across the forehead or over the head like a diadem, but securing this one around the back of an updo means that it was able to sway and shimmer in all its glory.

Judgement: 14/10!!! I’ve seen celebs wear necklaces in their hair before, and it’s always fun, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one wear quite this much necklace in precisely this way. Points for both innovation and beauty.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
