Perfect Pearls

Pearls… the classic piece  that ought to be found in every proper girl’s jewelry box.  Pearls can be used to dress up or down, they match nearly everything, and they are the perfect classic accent when you want to feel either sophisticated OR fun.  They can be conservative, sexy, understated, or bold.  In short, pearls are the best accessory!

Please keep in mind that pearls, as is the case with most things worth keeping, are quite expensive.  However, it is entirely possible to own pearls for everyday wear that are much less costly.  Honestly, one of my favorite pearl necklaces cost about $18 at Claire’s.  Obviously, those aren’t REAL pearls, but who cares?  They get the job done, and I don’t have to be concerned about them breaking or losing them.  I do think that every woman should strive to own a real set of pearls as an adult, but I think it is perfectly acceptable to wear the less expensive substitutes in the meantime!

Pearls are one of the single most classic accessories a girl can sport.  Every time I wear them, I feel instantly more sophisticated and put-together.  Though probably not the best match for sweats at home, pearls can match just about everything else.  They come in different colors, strands of different lengths, bracelets, earrings, and are being paired in jewelry with different styles of late.  I’ve collected some photos that I think show the versatility of pearls while also showcasing some of my favorite looks!  Hope you enjoy, and please feel free to share some of your favorites in the comments, too!
