How To Wear Estate Jewelry - Carolina Herrera Style

Carolina Herrera is on my mind today.  I've always admired her chic pared back style with few, the great white shirt with the cuffs and collar turned up, the straightforward black skirt and most importantly, the few but standout jewelry pieces. 
I've been wanting to post this fabulous photo by Douglas Freidman for a while.  Doesn't she look fierce in her Verdura watch, Verdura bracelet, gold signet ring, south sea pearl earrings and vintage antique watch fob necklace.  I would so wear this outfit.

If the full on watch fob necklace is too Grande Dame for you (and not to mention too expensive...lots of gold weight in that necklace), here's the younger version with a single fob pendant on an antique chain.

here's the detail

Also, don't miss today's Privilege with Carolina Herrera black tie style on a budget.
We're going Grande Dame all the way today

Great topic Miss BHB, she epitomizes elegance IMHO, I can't think of a time I have seen her make any kind of misstep.

Sending you a smile and hopes your Friday is fab,

I´ve only seen CH on the Sartorialist and some other fashion shots. This kind of jewelry suits her. On someone else, this would be just too much.

Princess, yes I agree she epitomized elegance.
Pseu, I like the fob as pendant but now I want a bracelet with fob charms.
Chic, have a great weekend.
David, yes simple outfit, big look.
Met, CH can pull off the jewelry because the rest of her outfit is simple.
Karena, a style icon, indeed she is.
