Pearl Girl

How I ever thought it was possible to steal all of the grace, charm, class, and refinement that people like Coco Chanel simply ooze without splurging on a piece as posh as a set of pearls is simply beyond my comprehension; but I find that pearls have never done much for me in terms of cravings. They lack all of the sparkle that diamonds possess; all of the glitter of rhinestones; even the sheer stop and stare reaction brought about by a Swarovski crystal. Even so, if I truly want to effuse the type of chic seen so frequently on Park Avenue, it seems that I will have to add a pinch of under-the-sea influence to my amassment of accessories; which I truly don’t mind doing now that I’ve discovered Mikimoto Pearls.

Mikimoto Pearls has a way of making standard sensational. They do not cater merely to the pearly white studs so frequently imagined when the topic of pearls arises in conversation. They create black as night pretties that look as if they have been finished in satin; they produce show-stopping white gold pendants that drape daintily; they craft whimsical in the form of frippery that resembles a shimmering branch from an olive tree; and, of course, they concoct the typical pearl fare for the girl who wants to remain classic in her choice of baubled embellishment.

The price may be a stretch, depending on the accoutrement you fall in love with, but the unconventional pieces that add a splash of uniqueness to each and every Mikimoto Pearl design is most definitely worth it. After all, don’t you want to be a Pearl Girl?


Fashionably yours!

Very nice design! Although I must say a regular boring strand of pearls work well for me too, depending on what I'm wearing. There's something special about a pair of jeans, equestrian boots, a cashmere sweater and classic pearls. I know, I sound like a mom... sorry! :D

I love pearls so much. They are definitely the one thing that all girls should own (along with diamonds). My mum gave me one of her pearl necklaces (ok, so I borrowed it and forgot to give it back) and I love it. Its so elegant and classy.

Such magnificent pieces! My mom has a Mikimoto pearl necklace. I always borrow it when I have to dress up for something. It's so perfect. Pearls are always great to have.

Pearls are up there on my list of must have items. Sure, I have yet to own a real set, but Forever 21 pearls do the trick for now. Beautiful finds, I especially love the studs.

Pearls never go out of style, so classy! Love the first pair, pretty!

Love pearls. My boyfriend loves me in pearl earrings. It's his weakness. So when I want him to do something for me, I wear 'em pearls. Haha. Kidding (a little bit).
