The heart of the party
In 2022, Louise Damas will celebrate 10 years of story with its Belles Héroïnes! To celebrate this common story, Louise has created a unique piece especially for this great event. Under the spotlight, discover Marilyn: our limited edition anniversary jewel. After all, who better than the actress known for her sultry cover of "Happy Birthday" to help us celebrate our 10th birthday?
All in sensuality
Marilyn is a pair of daring hoop earrings, with pretty golden curves that enclose a silver stone faceted like a diamond. A jewel as eternal as the sensual Marilyn Monroe.
From the iconic dress to the hoop earrings
"The late Marilyn Monroe!". As soon as she enters the stage, a few minutes before her interpretation of "Happy Birthday", Marilyn mesmerizes the crowd. Under her ermine coat, she reveals a fabulous dress encrusted with crystals. A nod to her legendary outfit, Marilyn's hoop earrings are just like her: dazzling.
The meeting of materials
Two noble materials make up the Marilyn creoles. Made of tin gilded with 24k gold, a golden interlace encloses a faceted silver and palladium plated insert. A unique combination for a signature anniversary jewel.
Behind the scenes
First an idea: to mix gold and silver to create a unique piece. Then sketches, the design of a silver and palladium plated insert, faceted like a precious stone, and models to find the best way to combine these two materials.
After several attempts, our artisans faced a new challenge: to create the perfect insert that would fit the closed setting of the earring. Fortunately, the story has a happy ending as a mold of this insert is born. With great care, our craftsmen dipped the creole in a gold bath and the small insert in a palladium bath, before delicately assembling them to give life to the Marilyn hoop earrings.
