About the Costume

Jewelry is always interesting to find reused and recycled, because while certain styles and stones do go in an out of fashion over time, it is easier to use jewelry in a wide range of time periods and not have it look nearly so unauthentic as a piece of clothing might be. A necklace, like the example above, may be just as at home in a film taking place in the eighteenth century as it is in a period drama taking place in the twentieth.

This pearl choker was worn originally by Charlotte Rampling as Lady Spencer in the 2008 film The Duchess.  It later went on to make an appearance on Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess of Grantham in the 2011 second second season of ITV’s Downton Abbey.
