The Manolo Blahnik for TOUS Mary Jane Pendants Are No Urban Shoe Myth
The Manolo Blahnik Mary Jane Pump has risen to legendary status — in no small part due to its role in a Sex and the City Season 4 episode in which Carrie Bradshaw stumbles into Vogue's fashion closet, eyes as wide as Augustus Gloop at the chocolate factory, and, upon seeing Blahnik's Campari black patent Mary Janes, squeals in delight, confessing she had dismissed these then-hard-to-find beauties as an "urban shoe myth."
Now, you can put your best foot forward in more ways than one, thanks to the Manolo Blahnik for TOUS jewelry collection, a collaborative effort that features sterling silver, gold vermeil, and 18K gold pendants all shaped to resemble this iconic pointy-toe Mary Jane design, with its slim strap and dainty button closure.
Prices range from $155 to $1,500 depending on the precious metal and the length of the chain selected. If, for example, you're looking for the most extravagant piece in the collection, opt for the Manolo Blahnik for TOUS 18K yellow gold and diamonds pendant ($1,499 at Shop.Tous.com), pictured here at top, which features gleaming yellow gold and an 0.008 ct. diamond stone at the button closure of the Mary Jane pendant's strap detail.
Those looking for more affordable options can select between the Manolo Blahnik for TOUS 18K gold-plated pendant with 31 1/2" chain ($499 at Shop.TOUS.com), which feaures a gold vermeil finish over sterling silver, or the Manolo Blahnik for TOUS 18K gold-plated pendant with 17 11/16" chain ($279 at Shop.TOUS.com), which is slightly cheaper thanks to its shorter chain length.
Sterling silver options, meanwhile, include the Sterling Silver Manolo Blahnik for TOUS with 31 1/2" chain ($279 at Shop.TOUS.com), pictured second from top, and the Sterling Silver Manolo Blahnik for TOUS with 17 11/16" chain ($155 at Shop.TOUS.com), which is nearly identical to the latter but features a shorter chain that hugs the neck a bit more closely.
How's that for a myth-busting jewelry collection?
