In their famous book, "People & Pearls: The Magic Endure," fashion experts Ki Hackney and Diana Edkins make the case for why people have treasured pearls for more than 2,500 years. "You might be captivated by someone else wearing diamonds, but it's the diamonds that sparkle," they write. "When a woman wears pearls, it is she who shines. Pearls complement a woman in whatever she is doing. They become part of her, not something worn by her." We couldn't agree more.
The Blushing Pearl Necklace pays the wearer 440 compliments with 440 individual pink pearls. Every single one of these cultured freshwater pearls has been carefully hand-selected for it size, shape and color to ensure they complement each other before being strung across a bold torsade necklace to ensure they complement her. The combined effect of all 440 pearls is stunning, proving Hackey and Edkins' theory correct.
The price of pearls used to make them the exclusive preserve of the very wealthy, with royalty being particularly fond of any jewelry that helped them look their best. But modern advances in aquaculture have made pearls available to those without crowns and thrones. The Blushing Pearl Torsade's generous 440 pearls, and the effort that went into selecting them, is available for this exclusive price. The cost of looking your very best has never been so low.
