I love pearl jewelry, mainly pearl necklaces. Pearls have simplicity that no diamonds can match. Although I love diamonds, too, (who wouldn’t?), they tend to be too loud for me. With pearls like Mikimoto, I can wear my luxurious necklace without appearing to brag wealth or luxury. For me, wearing pearls is an acquired art; you don’t show a pearl necklace because of luxury, you wear it because you connect to its simplicity yet sophisticated style. Here’s one more thing why I like pearls: for some reason, not all women look good in pearls. Maybe because they treat pearls like diamonds, a piece to be deliberately showcased to friends. No, pearls as far as I’m concerned—and I’ve been wearing them with a great deal of style—are meant to be subdued, to tease the sense, much like the arrested inner glow inside it.
Mikimoto is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.
