In the summer of 1940 at the age of 20, Ava Gardner was visiting her sister Beatrice in New York City, when Beatrice's husband a professional photographer, offered to take her portrait as a gift for her mother Molly.
So pleased with the results he displayed the finished portrait in the front window of his Photography Studio on Fifth Avenue. Ava's picture was spotted by a MGM studio talent scout and the rest is history as they say. Widely recognized as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood history, Ava Gardner left her mark during her almost 50-year film career.
Her beauty and presence is undeniable, and in creating our collection of jewellery trays we imagined the incredibly glamourous Ava preparing for an opening night or dinner party in Hollywood, getting dressed with her diamond jewellery elegantly placed on lush velvet trays. Diamond rings and bracelets carefully and stylishly placed and ready for her to adorn.
We hope you enjoy our nostalgic reminiscing back to the by-gone era of Hollywood. And that the magical glamour of era is captured with our Ava Velvet Jewellery Trays. Available in 4 lush and rich velvet colours - Marigold, Violet, Mint and Blush.
