I'm pretty much a jeans and t-shirt girl. I rarely wear necklaces, and always take them off, as I find them distracting? I'll keep a couple for the yearly Xmas party and the odd celebration, but the rest I'll try to sell. I love how they look when I see the photos, will put one on and 30 mins later...back in the box LOL.Why don't you wear them ?
This post is a few months old
maybe you had fun with them in the lockdown ?

I agree! I think you can rock pearls with jeans and a tee any day! I think it's the irritation part mainly now that I think about it. I should put a strand on and forget about it LOL.Understood
And well they do like to be warn so 30mim sounds fun
But id keep a few extra back just in case your taste changes
I never even thought of pearls till i inherited my mum's despite
Now i just can't stop drooling at the Queen's pearls
Incidently when i first went to work in the very early 90s i worked for a large regionsl rural servicing company
On Tuesdays was a big stock sale and all the farmers with wives in tow would come to town in their best clothes
the ladies all wore 'denim twinset' with pearls so in my mind pearls go with denim
It sounds tonns of fun !I agree! I think you can rock pearls with jeans and a tee any day! I think it's the irritation part mainly now that I think about it. I should put a strand on and forget about it LOL.
Back when I was a stay at home Mom, and the kids in elementary school, the Moms used to have a wear your pearls day, I think it was Thursday. That was fun. I'd wear them.
I adore pearls too. Do you have a favorite famous strand, or are your Mum's your favorite?
Ooooooo, they all sound lovely! Something magical about pearls and shells IMO.It sounds tonns of fun !
Long ramble going nowhere coming up !
My favourite to be honest is a faux choker i brought in 1989
one day im going to have it made with real pearls and silver wire
I have been known to wear it upside down on my forehead bandeau style
It isnt a full round - its made of wire and i don't feel strangled by it and its light
i love Camila The Dutchess of Cornwall's chokers and i love the Queen's pearls and i loved when Diana wore pearls
But beads always gave me a headache so im new to wearing anything but a chain
i have a ton of pearl projects in my head and i want to buy a pink strand from pearl paradise
Mum's stand is very nice but when its restrung i need to lengthen it to its current stretched length - im thinking of buying a mixed by the inch length from pearl paradise and hopefully i can do all my lengthening .
I have a fun multi strand from the mall jewler-(white, pink and white baroque)i really love but its too tight
I hate feeling strangled
How ever thinking back the pearls i wore the most was a cheap dyed blue and silver necklase i got from an outlet stote. with Baroque, rounds, and bits of shell, it was long and light
When it broke i wish i had saved all the bits
I wore it on christmas and family birthdays - i found the matching braclete yesterday and thought if i can find enough of the other bits i could string it back up, It was almost a rope
I mean Queen Alexandra wore faux and real pearls so who cares if they are cheap dyed ones
Beautiful design! Looking forward to more photos when you get them!I've been a good girl whilst in lockdown and refrained from shopping....until a couple days ago when I pulled the trigger at American Pearl
1. 1 pair 11mm white/silver South Sea pearl studs with platinum posts
2. 1 pair Arc de Triomphe heart earrings with 11mm white South Sea pearls in platinum setting.
I tried on the Arc de Triomphe earrings with grey pearls last year when I visited the showroom in NY.
I'm really excited to get my earrings in a couple weeks!
Nice collection @mommylawyer !I posted these pictures on other threads before I found this one about pearls, but I wanted to share them here.
My 14K yellow gold earrings with Taille d’Eparnge enamel and pearls, circa 1870. I love the little anchors.
My freshwater necklace and bracelet from Tiffany's. The WG earrings were a gift from my sister-in-law, and I purchased the SS ring in Austin during a class reunion trip.
Beautiful! These look lovely on you. Happy Birthday in advance!Here are my new gorgeous pearls bought preloved by the lovely @yssie I could have never picked out studs so beautiful! They are white Hanadama from Pearl Paradise, 9.3mm white with irridescent pink overtones. They are stunning! I'm over the moon with them! Hubby is giving them to me for my birthday in the next few months, so these are some excited ear shots and then they will go away for a little while.
