    I'm in love with Christine Lagarde's jewelry collection. Her style fits me to a "T. "Here's a photo of her wearing a gorgeous pearl and diamond pendant necklace with matching earrings. I'd love to emulate this look. Are these white south sea pearls? What do you estimate their measurements to be?

    I found these Miki's on my local jeweler's website and they look similar. Do you think this is what she's wearing? (One's a 10mm and one's a 13). Thoughts?

    I don't see the photo of Christine Lagarde....

    Edit. I see it now. Yes, likely a SSP given the size. (mind you FWP are also found in that size.)
    I'd guestimate 12mm.

    Hugely overpriced, check out the offerings from the likes of Pearl Paradise and Pearl of Joy.

    They can source larger pearls too, and may even have them in stock.

    Could also be a bead nucleated freshwater. If you wanted something which looked the same you could substitute silver and CZs

    Thank you, it is very helpful to know someone who has bought one and can say how the quality feels high in person.

    In general, I really like the luster of both Mikimoto and Tiffany Akoya pearls. Even though they are overpriced, to me, their luster is better than other pearls I've seen which are supposed to be the same rating. I have no idea how their SS pearls compare as I don't own any and haven't done any side-by-side comparisons.

    Thanks! I'm not in a position to purchase anything until I'm back in the States in the fall. But perhaps maybe you or the other ladies will buy some pearly awesomeness?

    My husband bought me a strand of Mikimoto pearls about 6 years ago. Although I could have bought a similar necklace at one of the pearl vendors mentioned here at a significant cost savings, I just think the luster and quality of the Mikimoto is outstanding. It’s not the look you are going for, but I’m attaching a picture for reference.

    I’d recommend going with Mikimoto if you consider it a special necklace.

    I'm of no help on the pearls, but I love that look as well! I find her style often appeals to me. Very simple, elegant, and sophisticated.

    Christine Lagarde was the chairman of the IMF and now she's going to be the president of the European Central Bank. She's a high power, groundbreaking woman. Forbe's has ranked her the third most powerful woman in the world. She's one tough chic! (And an elegant one too!)
