JANUARY JONES may be best known for her stint as stint midcentury Mad Men mama Betty Draper, but the star can rock modern looks too, as her Instagram presence proves. Besides the actress’s low-key glamour and slightly goofy personality, one thing stands out in her selfies: a gold charm necklace that is clearly the actress’s go-to jewel.
The configuration changes occasionally, but the necklace’s base layer is almost always the same; a gold chain with a large Van Cleef & Arpels Virgo medallion at the center and a gold Foundrae shield to the side. Jones occasionally swaps out charms or adds additional layers, but she rarely posts a selfie without the piece. Recent photos show a new addition to the setup, a connector that attaches a pink gemstone charm.
It is both unusual and delightful to see a celebrity so dedicated to a personal piece of jewelry, especially such an interesting and versatile piece. Fans can’t get enough of the look – there are whole forums online dedicated to finding lookalikes for the style. Charm necklaces that can be scaled up or down with additional connectors are a dream for shopping opportunities, as the very nature of such a piece demands new additions and evolution over time.
