Pearls of Wisdom


2. Forever 21 Pearlescent Bundle Earrings $4.80
3. Lulu's Excaliber Necklace $11.00
4. Lee Angel Imitation Pearl & Crystal Cluster Ring $75
6. Cultured Freshwater Pearl Necklace $210 (sale)

Whether it be a single strand, a cluster, or a simple pair of studs, pearls are no longer reserved for your grandma's jewelry box. I've always had an affinity for pearls of any kind and recently I've been pulling out all my pearl jewelry and wearing it with everything. They're the perfect way to soften up any outfit and instantly make me feel like a lady. How do you feel about pearls?

I completely agree. Pearls make so much more of a statement now and it isn't that you are over the hill. I especially love strands like #1 and #3, and you can't ever go wrong with the classic #6.

Great post and have a fantastic 3-day weekend!

I love the different variations of pearl jewelry -- especially when it's mixed with other chains and necklaces. That ring is divine!

I stumbled on your blog and I'm hooked and currently going through your archives. Love your outfit posts!

Pearls are awesome! I think you can make them feminine or pair with other funky jewelry for a more edgy look! A classic.

I LOVE the Kate Spade Bracelet. It has convinced me that I seriously need to rock pearls more often!! :)

Annie said...

It just so happens that the only pearls I own are from my 2 grandmas, but I think that's only a sign of how classic they are :) I'm definitely into earrings more than necklaces at the moment..

Have a great weekend Valerie! xo

I feel the same way. I have a necklace that my dad gave me a while back, and it will always be one of my favorite jewelry items. Simple, timeless, and classy.

Sooo- I reserved it for this weekend because it didn't work out yesterday (and I would've been rushed), but you totally inspired today's post! Thank you:).

Lindsay said...

OH I love the last one. That is gorgeous! I am a total pearl lover :)

I remember loving pearls since I was a child. I think I've always loved jewelry and I was overjoyed when my grandma passed me on her pearl rings and pearl earrings!

I'd pick #s 1, 3 and 5!
