Here is part of my collection of pearls. Some are vintage pearls handed down from my grandmother, mother, and mother-in-law. Some were purchased at a vintage store. One stand is real in all of these. I received them for Christmas a couple of years back. Pearls are the jewel for my sorority, Sigma Kappa. I think that is why they are very special to me. They speak of elegance, grace, and the formal occasions of gloves and heels. I recently saw the movie Julie and Julia, and that brought to mind that pearls can be for less formal wear also. I will be attending a wedding next month, and that will be a good time to wear the real ones. Now what else will I wear, I detest pantyhose and heels. Maybe dressy slacks, and a blazer. With jewelry of course.
