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.

It Was Time to Make a Decision. It Was Time to Call Wilkerson.

Except for a few years when he worked as an accountant, Jim Schwartz has always been a jeweler. He grew up in the business and after “counting beans” for a few years, he and his wife, Robin, opened Robin James Jewelers in Cincinnati, Ohio. “We were coming to a stage in our life where we knew we have to make a decision,” says Jim Schwartz. He and Robin wanted to do it right, so they called Wilkerson. The best surprise (besides surpassing sales goals)? “The workers and associations really care about helping us move out own inventory out of the store first. It was very important to us.”
