Best Bets

A pearl-and-diamond necklace from a Hollywood glamour expert. Plus, resolutely utilitarian boots, an all-weather carryall, and more. . .


The Best Bet
Accessories are the understudies-become-stars of the current fashion season—an excellent turn of events for Tony Duquette, whose jewelry is just as exuberant as the Hollywood sets, interiors, furniture, and costumes he designed for five decades. Although he died in 1999 at 85, his business partner of three decades, Hutton Wilkinson, still makes pieces with the Duquette name and spirit. This bib-style necklace contains 62 Baroque South Sea pearls and 29 carats' worth of diamonds, set in eighteen-karat white gold. It and other one-of-a-kind pieces are exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. Warning: One-of-a-kind does not come cheap ($227,675; 754 Fifth Ave., nr. 57th St.; 212-753-7300).
