    I dunno...I'm just intrigued by them. Usually I just share some things I find because they just seem they might appeal to pearl lovers, but these are just different enough to intrigue me. I suppose visually I am attracted to the oddly unique jewelry

    I definitely like edgy jewelry. I met a lady earlier this year that had on a leather jacket, a silk ruffled blouse and a belt of maybe 5 or 6 leather cords of pearls (I imagine they were white CFWP and CTP). It was an edgy cool look yet soft and feminine at the same time. She was a more mature confident lady with a great attitude to match...she told me she never leaves home without her pearl studs and leather jacket, that and she along with her husband are riding their motorcycles down the Coast and that she is the one who got him into riding. I loved that!

    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

    I've only had issues with this type of earring and hooks. When there is no articulation it's easy for the earring to push up and out by a coat collar or scarf...even a seatbelt. I tend to make my hooks longer on the straight drops .

    Share away. I am always intrigued to see the unusual and unique. I tend to analyze everything, that is all.

    BlackPearlDudeDC: Oh, please keep posting cool stuff you find. I can drool over the jewelry, while still feeling that I could never wear it in my real life. I mean, I have entire books of tiaras, just to drool over the photos.

    I like your perspective and analysis (its the data geek in me)

    BWeaves each time I see a vintage hair ornament or tiara (less often these days) I think of you! I also used to do lots of sketching for modern tiaras and colored stones, but back then brides were less open to real gem tiaras and even less open to colored stones tiaras...alas Brides the only substantial audience for tiaras these days. Every lady should have one good Tiara. Bonham's every so often would get really interesting pieces up for auction and at reasonable prices...Bridal shops were scooping them up to rent out, I don't know if that is still the case. #BringBackTiaras...j/k.

    I was thrifting and found a vintage Dior Silk Scarf giving to my mom for the holidays. This thread popped up, now I'm thinking might need to rethink the scarf, but I sent it off already...rats.
