Choosing the right pearls ...

When choosing pearls, there are a few basics to keep in mind. Cultured pearls are the most expensive, although freshwater and glass pearls can cost you only half as much. Notice how shiny the pearls are in the light. They should be dazzling, never dull. Pearls should also be perfectly round.

Once you’ve purchased your strand, don't put it on until you’ve finished with your hair and makeup. Hairsprays and perfumes will cloud pearls.  Recently, you should know our daughters have been clamoring for our pearls.  Obviously, pearls are no longer your grandmother's jewelry anymore.
