For centuries, pearls have been a symbol of status. In my lifetime, they have been worn by everyone from fashion icon Jackie O. to First Lady, Michelle Obama. Even Phaedra Parks from RHOA says, “a Southern Belle wears pearls daily”. While I may not reach the pinnacle of class of either First Lady and I’m a resident of Indiana, pearls are another of my fashion favs this season.
This season’s pearls go beyond the traditional strand. Today’s pearls can be found in a variety of shapes sizes and colors – even silver and gold metals! Of course, the price ranges are as diverse as the style with prices as low as $10! (Remember, I bawl on a budget so of course these aren’t authentic.)
As you may have read, I frequent a variety of stores for accessories. One of my favorite stores is Stein Mart. When I enter their jewelry section I hear the angels sing on one accord, “Ahhhhh!” (Somebody pray for me, lol)
Seriously, I can find all the latest trends in accessories for an affordable price without sacrificing quality. I believe just because it’s inexpensive, it doesn’t have to look it!
In addition to being more contemporary, today’s pearls can be worn with anything like any other statement necklace. From jeans to a dress to a power suit. From a GNO, to date night, to church, to the office – there truly aren’t any limits!
So ladies, if your jewelry box is missing a contemporary pair of pearls, happy shopping!
