Other than my wedding day, Christmas may have been the only time that I have received jewellery from my husband. I have received earrings, bracelets and even a few necklaces, but none have been as beautiful as the pearls that I picked out for myself from Pure Pearls (sorry hunny).
I received an 18 inch strand of natural white freshwater pearls. When my package arrived, I was very impressed with the presentation. The pearls arrived in a velvet black box and came with an appraisal as well. My pearls have an appraisal value of $550 – WOW! I contacted Pure Pearls to see if they would be willing to support an independent appraisal, and unfortunately, they refused. I was a little disappointed, but it didn’t deter me from enjoying this beautiful necklace. I did however do the tooth test myself and the passed with flying colours!
Each individual pearl is perfect, not perfectly round, or perfectly white, but perfect in it’s own way. There are no real flaws to be seen, but no 2 pearls are the exact same size or roundness. However, seeing them all together in a row, they look flawless and classic. To quote my cousin, “I am all ‘classic Mom’ now like Wilma Flintstone or Marge Simpson”. And to be honest, I kinda like it. A pearl necklace is like a sign of growing up, and now that I am 30, it’s probably time that I become a woman. These pearls will look fantastic with that classic black dress, just in the office to dress up my wardrobe or during the holidays.
The necklace has a gold clasp and there is no way that it could accidentally let go. It was actually a little confusing the first time that I went to put my necklace on. Once you see how the clasp works, it is very simple, and very effective. I wouldn’t want a simple twist clasp keeping my pearls on; this clasp needs to be squeezed and then pulled out and turned around to be unhooked.
Overall, I really like my pearls, they are beautiful and a classic piece of jewellery that every woman needs. Men, if you think diamonds are a girls best friend, you are probably right, but the next best thing is a strand of beautiful pearls.
