I wrote a blog post about two stars who wore this style of necklace in 1940s films – read it here. Cate Blanchett wore a gold version in the 2015 movie Carol. After seeing the 2019 Oscars, I was inspired by Amy Adams' red-carpet look to add a Marcel Boucher brooch to this necklace, as shown in the last photo.
