What are the most popular gifts given for Mother's Day? Flowers and jewelry, right? And even though flowers are a very thoughtful and beautiful gesture, they don't last nearly as long as the gorgeous jewelry, which can be worn and treasured forever. There's just something about a piece of jewelry, particularly an item that is so very classic, that can make a woman feel like a princess every time she puts it on.
For me, that item arrived in the form of the amazing Eden Pearl Stud Earrings from Belle Pearl.
I had to work to keep my heart from pounding out of my chest while untying the perfect ribbon that came around the signature Belle Pearl pink box. And when I saw the 7mm AAA grade genuine freshwater pearl stud earrings neatly waiting inside, there wasn't much more that I could do but stand there and stare.
After running my fingers over the silky smooth pearls for a while, I finally broke out of the trance and had to try them on. Reaching behind to see the high quality sterling silver backs, I was happy to see that Belle Pearl had also added plastic security backings that I have previously had to purchase separately for my earrings. The feeling of reaching up and finding an earring missing is one that I definitely don't want to have again.
Just putting on the Eden Stud Pearl Earrings made me feel both beautiful and special. They're large enough to be noticed but not too big or flashy that I wouldn't want to wear them all the time. Whether completing the look with a black dress or adding fashionable style to a sweater and jeans, these pearl earrings are absolutely classic and striking.
Initially offering only freshwater pearls, Belle Pearl has expanded to now include semi-precious stones in their beautiful collection of jewelry for all ages. From adorable items for Baby & Children to stunning Bridal pieces (can I pull off wearing the Victoria Tiara to story time at the library?) to Awareness Jewelry for a good cause, Belle Pearl's products are handmade with attention to both quality and detail.
A unique gift item, Belle Pearl's personalized Name Bracelets for children or adults would be sure to grab the attention of Mom this Mother's Day or for an upcoming birthday or baby shower. Available in a variety of colors and styles of pearls, gemstones and silver, you are able to select not only the name(s) but an added charm, the colors and the right size to create a one-of-a-kind item that is safe for all ages.
For genuine freshwater pearls and gemstones (no imitations here), Belle Pearl jewelry does a wonderful job of complementing a woman's beauty without being overpowering. No matter if you are shopping for elegance, sophistication or charm, their pieces are timeless and will be treasured for years (and generations) to come.
