Gem City Gets Hollywood Jewels

 

MARIETTA – The City of Marietta is pleased to announce that the Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum will receive the honor of hosting an exhibition from the Joseff of Hollywood jewelry collection, featuring pieces worn in “Gone With the Wind” as well as other films from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

The exhibition will be on display at the Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum, Scarlett on the Square in Georgia, which has drawn visitors from all 50 states and more than 80 countries. Pieces worn by many of the actors from the movie who have guested at the museum on numerous occasions, will provide luster to the existing collection during the entire month of August. It’s been almost 78 years since the Academy Award-winning movie, “Gone With the Wind,” premiered, yet the 1939 film classic starring Vivien Leigh remains one of the most popular movies of all time. 

Included in the lineup is the coral necklace worn by Vivien Leigh (Scarlett) in the memorable barbecue scene at Twelve Oaks, the cigar case donated by Rhett Butler for the war effort and used by the ‘King of Hollywood’ himself, Clark Gable, along with several watch chains and FOBs worn by Gable in the film. The iconic “bell earrings” worn by actress Ona Munson as “Belle Watling” will also be on display along with dozens of artisanal Joseff designed pieces from other well-known films starring many of the “Gone With the Wind” actors, such as Ann Rutherford, Olivia de Havilland, Ona Munson, and of course, Vivien Leigh.

The Joseff of Hollywood: Treasures from the Vault Collection, previously on display in Europe, makes its way to Marietta thanks to Julien’s Auctions (Auction House to the Stars) of Los Angeles, CA., before returning to LA for its Auction Event slated for November 17-18, 2017.  For details about the auction, or to purchase a catalogue and view pieces from the Collection, go to: http://www.juliensauctions.com/
