In the midst of this Recession, its good to know there are still a few pearls around. There’s nothing like a good strand of pearls to lift your spirits or make you feel timelessly stylish. I’ll always remember the photos of Jackie Kennedy in the White House wearing her triple strand pearl necklace. It was a beautiful accessory to all her gorgeous Oleg Cassini suits. Years later, when the Pearls were sold at Christie’s, the world learned that the beautiful necklace was costume jewelry. But it didn’t matter. Jackie had created the perfect illusion. Her Pearls added just the right touch of class to her image. Today I hope someone else is enjoying them. A good strand of Pearls can be worn forever and with a wide variety of fashions. They are the perfect ageless accessory.
All of this leads me to the topic of today’s post. I have discovered that a little gem of a company in Boston called Museum Way Pearls is having a contest to give away the above pictured Multi-Colored Pearl bracelet. The contest is available to all Recessionistas via the magic of the Internet. Best of all, entering this contest costs you nothing except the time it takes you to enter.
