Manolo Jewelry » Shiny!


By La Petite Acadienne

You know, I don’t wear pearls all that often.

I WOULD, however, make a rather notable exception for this necklace, thank you very much.

I don’t know what it is about gray pearls that appeals to me so much. It’s probably like my love for gray cashmere — it just feels RIGHT to me.

Details: this 17 inch necklace features 27 Tahitian Gray 13.5 mm by 16.5 mm South Sea Baroque Pearls, finishing this piece is diamond ball clasp. Yes, the diamonds do seem to be a bit of a case of gilding the lily, but I suppose when you’re already wearing pearls like these, go big or go home, right?

So, Mr. Clooney, if you wish to bestow these upon me this holiday season, I’m sure I could find it within my heart to wear them.  I’m very kind that way.

    Luckily, mr. Clooney will not have to fight mr. gamma for them, or it would be pistols at dawn. But I am more of the creamy pearls type. Is that because it suits my complexion more, or because these gray beauties remind me of the silver beads on a squash blossom necklace? Both, definitely.

    I have some Tahitian black pearl earrings my parents brought me back from a trip to Tahiti, and they are lovely.

    That necklace would be JUST the thing to go with them. Oh husband, come here a sec!
