When she took the stage with U.S. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for the announcement of her nomination to the Supreme Court, Solicitor General Elena Kagan wore one of her trademark pearl strands.
Kagan is the president's nominee to become the 112th justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. She is the first woman solicitor general, having been nominated by President Obama on January 26, 2009, and confirmed by the Senate on March 19, 2009.
If confirmed, she would become the fourth female justice in the Supreme Court's history, and the third on the current bench. She would also become the eighth Jewish justice in the Supreme Court's history, and the third on the current bench.

Writer Molly Fischer discusses the advantages of a pearl necklace to the census bureau:
The census bureau has discovered that people will speak most readily to a census-taker who looks similar to themselves. When it comes to counting the wily residents of the Upper East Side, this seems primarily to involve wearing a pearl necklace.
“On Park Avenue, sometimes you get a retiree or that person who has the pearls who can talk their way past a doorman,” New York regional census director Lester Farthing told The Times.
A native--someone conversant in the region's social codes and customs--is an asset, on not just in the "dusty border counties of South Texas" but on Park Avenue.
“We do not require you to wear pearls, but if you live locally, you will have access and be accepted,” reiterated Marilia A. Matos, the associate director for field operations.
