Sharon Stone and Her Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra Necklace

Sharon with one of her sons.

When I did my most recent post admiring an outfit I saw on Sharon Stone I remembered how much I love her Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra 16-motif necklace of mother-of-pearl (both gray and white) and onyx in yellow gold. I not only love the necklace itself, I love how she gets so much wear out of it! I have seen it on her over the years and she pairs it with casual outfits like the ensemble above, but also with dressier looks, like in the photos below. She wears it both in her regular everyday life and in TV talk show appearances. It is a very expensive necklace—it currently retails for $23,500 (ouchy ouch ouch). What do we think, did Sharon receive it as a gift from VCA (or an admirer), or did she buy it for herself? I can’t decide. I would love it if she bought if for herself, but, of course, if VCA gifted me anything I would wear it all over town for years too!

Dressing it up in October 2015. Love this look!

No matter how she acquired it, she makes it work with any outfit and it seems part of her regular jewelry rotation, which I appreciate.

Wearing it with peach again in August 2013.

Let me know if you have a necklace that can go with any outfit you wear, whether casual, dressy, or somewhere in between!

Maybe Ms. Stone received this gorgeous necklace in a swag bag when she was nominated for an Oscar for Casino as best actress. Apparently the Oscar swag bags are worth a LOT of money.

However she got this necklace you can tell she just loves it.

Ms. Stone sets a really high bar for being 60 years old.

Hi Rosie! Hmmm, yes, I had not thought of a swag bag during Oscar time when she was nominated for Casino! I need to rewatch that, I have not seen it in years. If I owned this necklace I would wear it several times a week! I still cannot believe Sharon is 60. She looks great and she always seems to be enjoying herself, no matter who she is with. I hope all is well with you! xx
