#835 Marilyn Monroe and Mikimoto pearls
I saw a pearl necklace at Mikimoto exhibition.
The necklace was owned by Marilyn Monroe once. When baseball legend Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe came to Japan on their honeymoon, he gave the necklace to her.
According to the description, although she rarely wore any jewelry, she loved the pearl necklace. There are many photographs of her wearing it.
I asked an usher “Why did this necklace come back to Mikimoto?”
He said “Mikimoto got it through an auction in N.Y.. About 10 years ago.”
I looked carefully at each pearl of the necklace.
They were shining gracefully and gently.
Imagining her wearing it fascinated me.
