Why don't you wear them ?
This post is a few months old
maybe you had fun with them in the lockdown ?
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.

Understood =)2
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 :kiss2:

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

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?

It sounds tonns of fun !
Warning !
Long ramble going nowhere coming up ! :lol-2:

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

Ooooooo, they all sound lovely! Something magical about pearls and shells IMO.
When you get them strung up, show us some pictures? I can relate that some of your favorite jewellery doesn't cost a mint. I'm like that too. My favorite was the only necklace I wore, a 2 dollar piece of light purple amethyst rough on a cord, until I dropped it on the tile floor and it cleaved in 2 :(

I taught myself how to knot a few years back and went crazy knotting beads and pearls with subtle and then crazy colored thread. Then I cut them all apart again. Not sure why now that I think about it Sometimes I just take the pearls out and play with them, the tactile experience is really lovely. When I do wear them for the day (maybe once a year?), the pearls get a lot of attention. People gravitate toward them. Mind you, up against my t-shirt they do lay there screaming Look At Me!!
