I’m not sure what it is about Valentine’s Day that reminds me of pearl accessories. Maybe it’s my association of demureness and femininity with the “holiday”. And when I think of the concept of self-love and self-appreciation, pearls always come to mind – likely because of their “treat yoself” feel. They also remind me of my mother; she always instilled in me a love for pearl accessories and growing up owning my own pair of pearl earrings and a pearl necklace were big deals. I actually wore pearls through all of high school, and took my first real pair with me when I tote off to Cornell University for a business school program during my junior year.
All in all, pearl accessories symbolize respect, class and dignity to me so I try to incorporate them into my wardrobe as much as I can. But of course, I like to jazz things up, so I found some cooler, much more unique pearl accessories you can grab for next to nothing.
