    "And maybe it sounds silly to wear pearls and other jewelry around the house but I am a stay at home mom so if I only wear things when I go out I never wear them. And I would rather wear and enjoy them, tbh."

    Welcome, Moonsprinkles.

    I too like the look and feel of non-round pearls, and find weight soothing.
    As for wearing them around the house, my epiphany came on this forum years ago when I read a post from LaCorsetiere about her "scuba pearls". With pictures that made my jaw drop. Seeing someone wear a strand of drop-dead Tahitians scuba diving changed me forever.
    Now I "don't get out much" (code for kind of reclusive) so I wear pearls out to feed the horses, and do the grocery shopping. Of course when we do go out I pull out everything and overdo. Great fun. If we wear our pearls for our own enjoyment, imo that is a higher use than wearing them to impress. But, I also don't mind impressing and being impressed either!

    Enjoy the forum!

    Thank you so much for your welcome! I am glad to be here. The idea of "scuba pearls" is very impressive indeed, I've never seen anything like that! You sound a bit like me...I am also kind of reclusive (hello, social anxiety) so I just always dress for myself and figure that's enough. I honestly never see anyone else wearing pearls in the area I live in, except for maybe the occasional elderly lady, so I assume most people probably think mine are just beads. And that I am overdressed for grocery shopping and lugging around two kids, lol. But I got used to weird looks about my fashion choices riding a bike around my university campus in a skirt and heels! I live in a very "casual" area of the country.
    Besides, I'm sure your horses appreciate you being all pretty for them!
