RB Jewellery Icons

1. MARIA FÉLIX
Called the "supreme goddess of Spanish language cinema" by The New York Times, Félix was an iconic European film star. Her career began in the 1940s and she went on to be an inspiration to artists and poets alike.

Her penchant for snake jewellery became synonymous with her bold style, and a symbol of her wisdom, strength and creativity

2. GRACE JONES
Nothing short of an icon, Jones recently celebrated her 72nd birthday and still commands a stage and catwalk like no other.  Her jewellery style is as electric as her performances. Bold, sculptural, avant-garde - a true celebration of adornment.

3. JULIE CHRISTIE
The changing looks of British actress Julie Christie always centred around a quintessentially Sixties style - think statement circular earrings, bangs and chequered minidresses. 

With an innate knack for boho and love of vintage pieces, Christie's blend of femininity and style shaped her as the natural embodiment of Swinging London.

4. UMM KULTHUM
With a career spanning 60 years, Umm Kulthum has been a significant influence to musicians in the Arab world and beyond. Her performances combined raw emotion and political rhetoric, and she was greatly influential.

Umm's style was timeless, epitomised by the pearl necklace and earrings she wore.

5. ANNA MAY WONG
Acting in one of the first films made in colour after the silent era, Anna May Wong became an international star. While she was first and foremost an actress, Anna was a trailblazer in racist 1930's Hollywood and also a fashion icon who cultivated her unique and stylish flapper image.
