Regina King Is Celestial in This Major Louis Vuitton Pendant

The celeb: Actress and director Regina King.

The scene: The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ Opening Gala.

The jewelry: The jaw-dropper here is the Lune Bleue pendant from Louis Vuitton’s galaxy-inspired Stellar Times Collection. It’s a large disc showing a celestial scene; a crescent moon made of diamonds cradles a sizable cabochon sapphire against a stylized sky of diamonds and sapphires.

King wears the Lune Bleue with its sautoir-length diamond chain doubled, positioning the pendant at exactly the right height between the lapels of her double-breasted Louis Vuitton jacket. She accents the look with medium-sized diamond hoops and a smattering of diamond rings to add sparkle without pulling focus.

Our analysis: There’s been an enthusiastic return of 1970’s style round medallion pendants in the last few years, but we don’t often see the silhouette scaled up to this ultra-luxe level. It’s very effective; unexpectedly glamorous without feeling too formal.

We’ve seen diamond-encrusted hoop earrings on several red carpets recently, but they’ve mostly been paired with bare clavicles. The looks works brilliantly when the hoops play second fiddle to a serious statement necklace; it’s more fun than bare lobes or diamond studs but still doesn’t distract from the pendant.

The contrast of cool white diamonds and silver shoes against those gold buttons and gold-accented clutch is simply beautiful. A strong moment for mixed metals and an all-around gorgeous look from Regina King and her stylist team, Wayman + Micah.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
