It's Iconic: Jean Harlow, Sapphire Collector


Jean Harlow was a collector of sapphires. According to Hollywood legend, when Powell asked her to marry him in 1936, he offered her a beautiful, but traditional, diamond ring. Harlow accepted the proposal but refused the ring. The platinum-blonde bombshell felt a large star sapphire would better suit her personal style, so Powell purchased one. Harlow was still wearing the ring on the set of her final film Saratoga in 1937 before she passed away.
