Endless talk of all things sparkly.

My Jewel Box: Black Cultured Pearl Necklace


I never think of jewelry in terms of finding the right outfit I like, and then proceeding to pick out “jewelry to match.”  I usually do it the other way around, or mostly choose to not care whatsoever about what I’m wearing–just as long as I got on some nice jewelry.  I finally came across my first exception to this habit with this black cultured pearl necklace.  I have been wanting pearls for awhile; the last time I received some was high school graduation, a 16 inch strand of Honora white pearls.  Black cultured pearls would be different, and better yet, having them 80 inches long!  Ross-Simons has an amazing deal right now on this 80 inch strand of black cultured pearls–only $95 from now until January 15.  It seemed too good to be true, until I realized that I just couldn’t wear anything with an 80 inch strand of black pearls.  I actually needed to really think about a shirt that would flatter the necklace, and I found the perfect look.  This black wrap top from Victoria’s Secret.  The deep V neckline and dressy look to the top would go well with three strands of pearls.
