Pearls are often presented as a symbol of politeness and restraint. But that doesn’t have to be the case. It was Cleopatra who, in Ancient Egypt, made her pearls a glorious display of wealth and power. The Egyptian Queen made a wager with her lover, the famed general Marc Antony, that she could eat a meal worth 10 million sesterces. Marc Antony laughed when Cleopatra’s servants brought a cup of vinegar for her second course, but was then astonished when the Queen dropped one of her famed and expensive pearl earrings into the cup, waited for it dissolve, and drank it down with a smile.
The Splendor Pearl Collection was not created to be merely acquired, it was created to be coveted. With strands of cultured freshwater pearls twisted into a tantalizing torsade design, this luxurious look says that, like Cleopatra, you’re ready to take on the world, and you’re prepared to look fabulous while doing so. But be warned: seeing this many pearls is not for the faint of heart. Others may look as perturbed as you look palatial. And you’ll be turning heads knowing that you paid an incredible price for this collection of pearls. Includes necklace, bracelet and earrings.
