Yes, that is me! I love piecing together a classic black and white outfit with a pop of color in the heel. However, my focus for this post is not myself, but rather pearls. There is no other piece of jewelry that says classic WASP style like pearls. Pearls are something that have history, character, and distinction. Pearls are also the perfect gift for a woman. Just a warning gentlemen, a little knowledge is necessary before heading to your preferred jeweler. Of course, natural pearls are best, but they are hard to come across in the perfect large and round shape that is so desired. Therefore, cultured salt-water pearls from a reputable source such as Mikimoto are a good alternative.
The traditional short single strand pearl necklace is something that will never go out of style and can be paired with any outfit, for any occasion. Even though I have multiple versions of the short single strand, the pearl necklace I use most often is the one shown above. This longer single strand is much more versatile and can be used in a plethora of ways. My favorite is a simple knot, which I adjust depending on the neckline of what I am wearing underneath. So even though pearls are an eternal classic don't be afraid to tie them up and play with them!
