Not Your Grandmother’s Pearls

I have never been a huge fan of pearls worn alone unless they are very large or have a very interesting color or luster to them – they need to have something to them that makes them extraordinary.  When I wear pearls, I layer them with other necklaces or pearls of various lengths and color.  Otherwise, they are too traditional for me – maybe a little old fashioned.

Take a look at lesgazelles.com.  It is a beautifully photographed site that features black pearls strung on leather.  I love the juxtaposition of the traditional, feminine pearl with a somewhat masculine, tougher leather cord.  The designers take something traditional and make it very unexpected.
