June Cleaver's Necklace - Each episode of the sitcom LEAVE IT TO BEAVER/CBS/ABC/1957-63, actress Barbara Billingsley played June Cleaver, a traditional 1950s housewife who dressed nicely in simple but smart dresses and wore her trademark necklace of white pearls.

According to series' star Jerry "The Beaver" Mathers (in an interview in 1982) Barbara Billingsley was self conscious about a deep wrinkle at the base of her neck ("that looked like an tracheotomy scar") and so she chose to wear a strand of pearls to distract the eyes of the viewers (per "The 1st Leave It To Beaver Website)

The Cleaver family: Theodore "Beaver," older brother, Wally and parents, June and Ward
