    Default Wall Street Journal article on the allure of pearls...

    Thought it would interest P-G folks to have a look and read this:

    Enjoy! There's even a pearl chair in the slide show that accompanies this article!!

    I showed my teenaged daughter that photo-- she loved the shoes and said she would totally wear the dress on the right, if she had somewhere to wear it to!

    Enjoyed reading the article. Does the price for Dior ring seem reasonable - $590? Unless it's just costume and not real pearl or gold.

    Haha, I thought the same thing. I just assumed it was costume jewelry or that there was a misprint on the price.

    Ha, finally went to Dior site and found a description. Costume

    The 'Monsieur Dior' line from the Winter 2013 runway show reinterprets the superstitions of the House's founder in a spirit that blends the Art D?co and surrealist styles. This pink gold-plated ring adorns the hand with an elegant resin pearl.

    The pink gold plating I could live with, but a resin pearl? Cool design though!
