Some of my favorite pearls are the black and brown Tahitian pearls and the Freshwater pearls. The color choices are amazing and they have an iridescent glow to them. I remember being so intrigued about pearls that the first time I ever bought my own pearl I bought it through a booth at Epcot. You know the one that you’d find in the China section of Epcot. Once I realized not every pearl is as beautiful as my favorite Tahitian or Freshwater pearls I stopped taking chances on “the grab bag” pearls at the booths. Not that it wasn’t an incredible idea to have a booth that allows you to pick your own oyster and slay it for its gem, but I became such a pearl snob that I couldn’t help but hold out for the best.
To me, it’s about searching around and finding the perfect color, size and setting. It’s like trying to find the perfect pair of shoes with your outfit. With shoes you want them to be comfortable, not too flashy, they should match or compliment your outfit and you want to feel confident in them. With a pearl you want it to look beautiful but not too flashy to take away from the outfit and you want it to compliment your skin tone. It’s probably one of the reasons I’ve never been interested in a pink pearl, my skin is too pink. Black, Brown and Lavender pearls are some of the best colors to go with my skin tone and that lovely little black dress that I own. What color works best on you?
