Sounds good :)
It's amazing how many of us have real or fake pearls that are gorgeous and we don't wear them. They are always in style and currently are even more fashionable.
They are brilliant in that you can wear them with jeans and a t shirt or with an evening dress, equally well. Best of all we might have some already.
I got on better when I learned a few tricks to modify what I have. One that works better for me is to layer them up. A single strand doesn't seem to suit me but several together do and I always get comments then. If you lay your pearls down in a long oval shape you can use a ribbon to extend them to any length that suits you and you can add in extra layers. And just like that pearls or beads you haven't worn are suddenly the right length.
It's like using the good china or crystal... enjoy and don't save for imaginary one day important visitors! Enjoy yourself, shop your own jewellery box for something and give it a fresh lease on life.
