Every woman should own--and wear--pearls. Often. They're perfect. Classic, casual, formal, fun, jeans, dresses ... pearls fit the bill, regardless of the outfit and/or the event.
Some of my favorite pieces of jewelry are made of pearls--each one, interestingly enough, happens to be an item that carries the most sentimental value for me. So when I came across The Pearl Girls' wonderfully southern little shop (located in Georgia), I knew I was in trouble. In particular, this piece--the Black Tie Necklace--caught my eye.
