PEARLS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND
I'll let you in on a secret ... I'm a pearls kind of girl. The song "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" needs to be re-written for me to sing to it! Don't get me wrong, I do like shiny things like the best of us ... but in my eyes, the beauty of a pearl trumps any other precious stone's. From Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring painting, to Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany onto practically every Chanel runway until this day, pearls have proven their timelessness over the decades and centuries. Can you have a better investment piece in your wardrobe? I think not.
I was once told that pearls make one look older than their age. I tend to find objection to that statement. Depending on how pearls are worn, they can be as contemporary and fashion forward as the edgiest of accessories. Think about it: single rope pearl necklaces may be reminiscent of your dowdy school teacher - but the minute you add multiple ropes, why not in different coloured or sized pearls, you have a timeless statement necklace that'll be everyone's envy.
Jackie Kennedy is quoted to have said that "Pearls are always appropriate". Time keeps proving Jackie right. Even though we tend to associate pearls with morning events - I lost count of the times I was told that you 'have to' wear pearls to a morning wedding - pearls are just as appropriate for evening events. Make like Rihanna and take a multi-strand necklace and wear it with a tuxedo suit with nothing else ... the femininity of the pearls and the plunging neckline are a perfect complement to the masculine cut of the suit.
I find it very hard not to like pearls - probably it's because I still fondly remember the first time I borrowed my mum's pearl necklace. It's a rite of passage that every young lady goes through while becoming a sophisticated, elegant woman. To quote the great Coco Chanel again, "a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous" ... and you certainly can't go wrong with a pearl necklace any time of the day!
