She's wearing the famous bracelet as a dress clip! I am jealous of her style.
Is that the emerald and diamond bracelet? I hadn't noticed it before! I've read that it was a gift (along with matching earrings) from Charlie when she lost the role of Scarlett O'Hara.
You are correct! I saw those pieces (there is a brooch and earrings as well) completely by accident at the Legion of Honor in SF about 7 or 8 years back. I was there to see a DaVinci portrait and it was crowded so I went to look at some jewelry exhibit. I was stunned to see them in a case! They are gaudy gold with emeralds and diamonds - BIG, too. And yes, apparently a consolation gift for losing the role of Scarlett.
Apparently Paulette was an avid jewelry collector. She also had a necklace made from all of her old engagement rings.
Wow, that adds all kinds of question marks! She wears the jewelry he gave her to this "reunion"? A coincidence? Kind of interesting, no?
It IS interesting. I'm wondering if they just bumped into each other and were photographed. I can't imagine that they were really out together alone at this point, but who knows?
