Marilyn’s Pearls Coming to the V&A

The Mikimoto pearls given to Marilyn by Joe DiMaggio on their Japanese honeymoon in 1954 will feature in ‘Pearls’, a  new exhibition opening at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in September, reports Professional Jeweller.

With typical generosity, Marilyn gave the pearls to Paula Strasberg after the DiMaggios divorced. The pearls were returned to Mikimoto in 1998.
