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.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
