The Original

I was paging through an old magazine with my mom the other day and I mentioned how pretty the necklace was that Kim Kardashian was wearing. She was stunned and couldn't believe what she was seeing. She went to her jewelry box and came back with the original Monet necklace and earrings that inspired the House of Harlow necklace. Turns out, my great grandmother had given the set to her for Christmas when she was in her early twenties. It was a really popular design then. I can't wait to wear it, not only is it beautiful but it also has sentimental value.
