The gracious Hostess of the humble bungalow has asked me to post the sixth blog image (ever, I guess) and in the spirit of the game, here it is, an image of pearls designed by Zara Scoville of Priceless Imperfection.
Zara works in "dirty" or non-white pearls; wearing one of her pieces is an ongoing dream.
What le heck, while we're in the Passage, let's look at some new pearls, pearls of infinite mood and various prices, and all genuine pearls.
Stacked Kamoka Tahitian keshi bracelet, price, $235 from Kojima Company. Lustrous natural gray and silver 5.5-7mm pearls with 14k yellow gold clasp. Organic yet polished.
Gurhan pearl drop earrings, price, $1,193 from Bergdorf Goodman. 15mm pearls, hammered silver and 24k gold.
Just about the perfect-with-everything earrings, and they look so good.
Harrison Morgan triple-strand blue chalcedony, pink freshwater pearl & sterling silver necklace, about 22 inches, price, $425 from Saks Fifth Avenue.
I see this on Betty Draper, lending instant self-possession... then, a stolen kiss with Henry Francis. (Can he really be that courtly? We will find out in July.) Divine on a blonde or silver haired woman.
Then there are pearls for Patti Smith. TEM's four-row pearl collar with each strand a different type of pearl, which you can only sort of see in this shot. (From outside in, stick, round, oval and stacked keshi.) Price, $1,740 from Barneys.
Too bad they shot it on white, but check the site and zoom in– it's worth it!
Aesa Sadko necklace, grey pearl and brass cluster on an oxidized 20-inch silver chain. In a v-neck, oh yes. Price, $395 from Barneys.
Elegance in motion. Elsa Peretti 18k gold mesh and pearl earrings are light, malleable and alluring. 3.5 inches long, also available in a shorter, smaller size. $950 from Tiffany.
Birdsong, flowers, pearls! May your heart be light.
