Pearl Paradise are offering some luscious pearls for their April special, these exotic freshwaters with a metallic, intense glow. ("Metallic" for pearls does not mean fakey; the play of shimmer will be more pronounced than a soft sheen.)
I flipped some pearl price tags recently; this was the price for button pearl earrings from a swank jeweler!
They are a little petite for my taste and height (5'10") but they mention other lengths are available, so I'd order a 36-inch rope, for about $540– terrific value. Massed up, they'd glow madly.
Their intense luster creates more drama and presence relative to size, just as a beautifully-cut smaller diamond eclipses a larger, just okay stone.
You could wear them as is, and when it's time for restringing, take them to a designer for restyling, adding other elements or an interesting clasp.
Or– though strictly speaking, you are not supposed to touch pearls with anything but another pearl– you might layer the pearls with a pendant, chain or another necklace, such as this Dana Kellin rainbow moonstone and milky quartz piece $194 from Twist.
I'd pair the peach-toned pearls with this Alexis Bittar gold Montauk pendant, $155 from Twist.
At this price, these exotics offer great glow for the dough. Or delight a June birthday (pearl is their birth gem)! The 90-day complete refund policy removes any lingering qualms.
As if I have qualms about pearls!
