Jessica Biel knows a little something about jewelry — after all, she’s been wearing it since she was too young to remember.
“I got my ears pierced when I was three,” Biel, 32, told PEOPLE at the 2014 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book party in New York. “I don’t know why my mother did that at such an early age. It’s really not synonymous with her style to do something like that, but I’m glad she did.”
But despite her early start, The Truth About Emanuel actress, who wore a plunging black Oscar de la Renta dress and a Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace and earrings from the jeweler’s Blue Book collection, says it took her a long time to get into fancy jewelry.
“I didn’t really have anything of value for a long time. I bought myself my first pair of diamond earrings when I was a freshman in college,” she said. “That was a big deal. Before that, I grew up wearing lots of friendship bracelets. That was my favorite accessory!”
And she sees no reason why girls should have all the fun with accessories — she’s even down for husband Justin Timberlake to rock all the bling his heart desires.
“He wore earrings when he was a teenager, but I haven’t seen him wear them in a long time,” she says. “He can wear whatever he wants. He looks good in anything! If guys are confident and it’s who they are and they’re not putting something on just to be cool, I say go ahead, wear them. Good for you.”
