I still remember.
This is a special day. She carefully selects her outfit to wear, she sits down in front of mirror to put on makeups for a change, she does her hair more than just combing, then…
She puts her pearl necklace for the last touch…
The last piece she put on, I knew that was special for her.
When I think about my mom, I think about pearls. Something special about it, isn’t there?
Pearl Jewelry has been popular all around the world for centuries.
Queens and Princesses favored them.
Queen Alexandra, Queen Elizabeth’s great grandmother, loved jewelry, and she was only ever seen covered in pearls and diamonds. She even popularized pearl chokers!
Consuelo Vanderbilt | The Duchess of Marlborough frequently wore a pearl choker/collar that reputedly belonged to Catherine the Great of Russia and the Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III). In 1918, she donated a “collar composed of 15 rows of the Vanderbilt pearls” valued at $ 25k, to a “children’s jewel fund” of which she was treasurer. During the second decade of the 20th Century she was a leading champion of women’s rights and child welfare causes too (a reason to love her even more).
Remember, the infamous Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s 3 layered pearl necklace?
One of the reasons why pearls are so popular is that pearls are so easy to coordinate, and it goes perfectly with so many different outfits we wear. It matches with so many, but at the same time, it is special. It looks special, it makes you look special, and it makes you feel special.
Princess Diana also had a lot of varieties of pearl jewelry we loved so much.
So many different colors, so many different types, and so many different styles of Pearl jewelry attract the wide range of wearers.
The oh-so-elegant Grace Kelly also had several precious pearl jewelry she frequented.
Another thing we love about pearls is that it’s timeless. It was popular centuries ago. It is popular now. It will still be everywhere in the future too.
The pearl earrings, the pearl necklace, the pearl bracelet you received at your wedding, your graduation, or your birthday (june is pearl month!), you will still have it at your 90th birthday, and it’ll still make you look special (and fashionable too of course). It lasts forever!

May 8 is mothers day this year. Don’t forget to send her something – a phone call, a card, a gift, a visit…
The most important thing is to make your queen happy! 🙂
