Ever since I was a little girl I was fascinated by pearls. I remember asking for 'real pearls' for birthdays and Christmas.... That never happened. I did get small simulated pearls once; that's a really nice way to say plastic - or glass. I'm pretty sure the ones I got were plastic. I think I was about 12 or 13.
Two years ago at Christmas, someone very special gave me that dream gift, and I hadn't even asked. They were gorgeous; a stunning full strand of beautiful - and rather large - fresh water pearls. I fell in love with them right away. I wore them to every event over the Holidays, and a few times after New Years, but now they sit in my jewellery box, waiting for a special event, or for me to dress my casual self accordingly to be able to wear them.
Wouldn't it be nice to have 'casual pearls'?
