When it comes to the most popular gifts given for Mother's Day, the traditional flowers and jewelry just never go out of style.
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 White Freshwater Classic Pearl Pendant from Pure Pearls.
Having had a soft spot for pearl jewelry ever since I used to admire my grandmother's collection as a child, browsing the many gorgeous ways that PurePearls.com has turned freshwater pearls into pearl pendants, bracelets, earrings and rings reiterated my thoughts that they will just never go out of style.
And when the AAA Quality, 7.0-8.0mm gorgeous Pearl Solitaire Pendant arrived, I couldn't wait to see it's true beauty in person.
Sure enough, this necklace is both striking and simple and utterly classic. As I admired the elegant luster of the pearl itself, the solid, 14K white gold split-bale on which it hung, and the 16" delicate box chain that suspended it all, I could tell that this was a piece that was going to be not only beautiful but... special.
After looking over the Pearl Care Guide and appraisal that came with the pendant, I immediately had to try it on to see just how it looked.
Large enough to be noticed and grab attention but not too big or flashy that I would feel self-conscious, this solitaire definitely adds a classic, polished look to any outfit. Whether worn with a fancy black dress or adding fashionable style to a sweater and jeans, it is just the right balance of striking and casual. I love it!
