We love to go back and find some of the most iconic women of all time wearing pearls!
Today’s feature is an American Jazz legend.
The late, Billie Holiday is a woman known for her melodious voice, gorgeous face, and her beautiful signature of flowers that she wore in her hair. We think she is a great addition to our “Great Moment in Pearl History” because she made pearls a sophisticated and stylish statement in her jazzy look.
Eleanora Fagan, most commonly known as Billie Holiday and nicknamed “Lady Day” by friend and musical partner, Lester Young, was born on April 7, 1915 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She later died in New York City, New York, United States on July 17, 1959 at the age of 44.
