The Opera Queen Maria Callas is still known for her high-class fashion statement apart from her exceptional singing talent.
The Opera singer’s remarkable jewelry include an 11.7 ct diamond ring, a ruby-diamond brooch and other diamond & emerald jewels.
Amongst several accessories owned by Callas, some include a comb made of tortoise shell, Van Cleef’s gold evening bag, ribbon choker, leaf clip by Van Cleef & Arpels.
Most of the jewelry and accessories which the renowned singer left behind were perhaps gifted to her by her first husband and then her partner afterwards.
Tom Volf’s publication “Maria By Callas” showcases hundreds of Callas’s pictures in glamorous dress, styled in formal ornaments from the mid 20th century.
Adorned with dangling necklaces, bracelets, rings, brooches, and clips, Callas had an eye for ruby, emerald, gold, and diamond jewelry from Cartier Collection, Harry Winston, and Van Cleef & Arpels.
The singer is the face of the entertainment exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum to be held on June 24th, 2023 in London and her life will soon be documented in the Angelina Jolie starrer “Maria”.
