Is It Worth Investing In Pearls?

A pearl necklace will always be classic.  Time and time again, we see pearl necklaces adorn the necks of elegant women, but can never tell the difference between the faux and the real deal.  Once we started actually looking into buying pearl necklaces for ourselves, though, we understood.  There’s a huge difference between faux and real pearls when you try them on: The weight of them, even the sheen, is different.  But we found a pearl necklace we had to invest in, and it cost $2,590.  So what did we do?  The fashion math, of course:

{ $2,590 divided by 90 ladylike days and nights = $28.77/wear }
One wear of this necklace is the same price as your daily coffee.  Three months out of the year you are bound to grab this staple-made with freshwater pearls and hand-knotted on silk thread.  The strands’ varying lengths and sizes make a modern statement, and you can wear this necklace for formal and casual events.  Do you want to be known as the grandmother who passed along the cheap pearls?  Didn’t think so.
