Pearls Are a Girl's Best Friend

I got my first pearl necklace at the age of 6 that were given to be as a gift for being a flower girl. I have been in love with pearls ever since. For my 18th birthday my parents gave me the most beautiful strand of Tiffany pearls. For graduation, my grandmother gave me the David Yurman pearl cable bracelet. This was later followed by a bracelet that my mom had designed from my late grandmother's pearls. For my 21st birthday, my parents gave me a David Yurman pearl ring. Pearls have been involved in all kinds of special occasions for me.

J.Crew has some fabulous pearl pieces this season! Some of them have been designed as traditional bridesmaid gifts, while others are more fashion pieces. You can click on the pictures to take you to the link.
