Midweek Meander #11: Pearls for Summer

Pearls inside of an oyster

Pearls have been on my radar screen lately.  We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary last week.  The traditional gifts is pearls so that is what sparked my attention.  It’s hard to believe that we have been married 30 years.  We have also lived in Atlanta for 30 years now.  I think that I would qualify us true suburbanite Atlantans at this point.

Yes, I did receive some gorgeous pearls to adorn my wrist.  I am sure that you will see them at some point either in person if you know me well or on social media.  I love the pearls that I have.  Mark has always been very good at jewelry gifts and has very good taste and attention to detail.  The sad thing is that so many of my beautiful things stay in the safe more than on my wrists, ears, fingers, or around my neck.

Funny story….a couple of weeks ago I went to pull my favorite Tiffany’s charm bracelet out of the safe.  It is truly one of my very favorite pieces to wear in the summer.  It is sterling silver and had not seen the light of day in almost 2 years. because we haven’t gone anywhere for over a year and was so tarnished.  A few days At Tiffany’s and it is looking like new again.  FYI, they do inhouse cleanings for free.  The store here has a 3 day turnaround.  Here’s a great DIY article on how to clean sterling silver jewelry at home.

    First of all, you are very lucky to have spent a lifetime with your partner, who has a perfect taste, dear. One of the beautiful ways to wear BETH Pearls is the connection between the dress on the person and the neck posture. A dress with pearl accessory details and a pearl necklace with the same detail make you completely different.
