I once sawa creamy pearl bangle bracelet on someone else and it was really beautiful. Never seen another one though. I like pearls combined with other gems. Strands of pearls, unless they are those raw kind - remind me too much of debutantes and Republicans! haha
I believe as women mature, they will appreciate pearls. Also, it's best to receive pearl jewelry instead of buying them. If one buys them it'll bring sadness since they represent tears. If one receives it as a gift, it's proven to be lucky.
I don't like pearls at all. I don't like the way they're made, but if they were fake I don't like the look. Too "old lady" for me. I think, "Barbara Bush" (former First Lady) and don't ever want that look. Or else I think, "1960's TV Mom with little white gloves, a little hat, and pearls. (and I'm mature enough to recall those TV Moms, so I don't think it's about how mature someone is. ) (Sorry to apparently be the only pearl-hater here.... ) Eew - they're so heavy looking.
LOL! ...I have a nice strand, bracelet and earrings..gifts....but know what you are saying!...I'll wear them with a pair of jeans...no 1960's TV Mom look for me...maybe i should wear them when I go for a motorcyle ride - how's that? LOL! I'll post a pic one day! just to give you a laugh!
Maybe if you turn them into jewelry that can be used with lots of face piercings you won't look like June Cleaver and Carolyn Applebee (Lucy Ricardo's "friend"). Other than that - be careful (and stay away from light-blue, wool, suits).
I'm not just just back-peddling now that I'm realizing how many have/like pearls, but I think bracelets and earrings are a very different thing than those single-strand numbers matronly, white-bubble-haired, ladies were around their necks.
and then this.... (obviously, I'm not in the mood to do any real work tonight ) Anyway....
I don't know, SomewayOuttahere..... Bracelet or not, be VERY VERY careful.
swapna, what do they (politicians and the like) hope to accomplish with that look? June Cleaver?? I mean - really - get the pillbox hat, the little gloves, and the little square jacket and call yourself "interesting".
The colours and shapes have never appealed to me. I prefer creative looking jewellery, dangly lengths of metal and semi-precious stones. If I must have precious stone I like sapphires. My wedding ring has dark blue sapphires in it.
Now, a nice string of white pearls would do wonders for these people.
(In the interest of full disclosure, when I was looking for the pictures above I ran into a bunch of photos of really glamorous women with pearls on; but - really, based on those borderline-dominatrix photos, apparently pearls aren't what they used to be. )
Maybe all those other people who don't like pearls just stayed away from a thread about them (unlike me, who couldn't resist clicking on and voicing a negative opinion - Don't mind me. Sometimes I apparently think it offers "balance" to express "the other side".
Based on my own severe minority status on this thread, I don't think you have anything to worry about.
(So go ahead, all you other ladies - look like Barbara Bush and June Cleaver if you must! )
(Note with the Betty White pictures: People don't start wearing pearls when they're old. They start young and keep it up for their whole life, which pretty much means going with the old-lady look long before it's necessary. ) (alternate poet, don't worry. It's obvious nobody is going to listen to me anyway. )
Now... Are these pearls on this next lady, or is she just wearing a necklace that LOOKS LIKE pearls? (Of course, she throws in those brooches to add to the look - but that's a thread for another time. )
I always think you have to be very stately and regal to wear pearls - hence I wear nothing but plain, good quality silver or gold accessories - super small and super simple. I can't imagine wearing pearls and urban mushing; wearing pearls and going for a body skid on the lake with my malamutes or doing some of my other antics in pearls.
All that said, I often admire beautiful women dressed to the nines in their elegant attire adorned with pearls - and wish I was more like that! Some of us just look better in pearls I guess.
I've just completed a hub on what valentines day gifts for what women really want. Looking into a man's perspective, I don't think they really have a clue! So, thought that a discussion on this would be...
Hey there,Might seem like an odd question to some (maybe all) of you, but seriously, how can a male not get confused by this stuff one sees and hears every day around him? I'm a guy who's really not into all the...
