If you could do it over again - what would your very first pearl purchase be?

What a lovely project!

and Oh, so true, cmd2014! I'm rooting for you, and for all of us saving for The Big Dreams.

Just love the beautiful bride and her wedding pearls, love and happiness all around!
Thank you for your kind wishes, everyone. My son loves this lady so, and I am very happy to have gained a wonderful new daughter.

I agree that Linda has a point about having everyday pearls as well as the fancy pieces. I saw my new DIL yesterday, and she had paired her white wedding drop earrings with a black turtleneck along with a doubled rope of dyed freshies from the little h Colorful Pearls Collection. She looked lovely. I picked up a couple of these inexpensive colorful strands for the family Christmas exchange a couple of years ago. They were popular with my in-laws. I, however, kept the bracelets for myself. ;)
Keeping bracelets - a girl after my own heart, lol!

we've got to watch our steps though; Katbran just reminded us about the Naughty or Nice lists ;-)
Congratulations Red. Next year, I get a daughter-in-law too!
Maybe she would like to wear some pearls ……
Cheers. :)
What a delightful and joyful post, Red :) Glowing pearls, a lovely bride and a new daughter for you ... wonderful! She looks beautiful in her new pearls, and what a privilege for you to be a trusted part of that! I was lucky enough to get a son when my daughter married ... no pearls there, although I slipped one in on the grandson LOL ... BEST WISHES to the new bride, your son, and you as well, Red :)
I think I lucked out on my first pearl purchase. A ring that was designed for me by Valerie Saint- Guadens grand daughter of Augustus Saint Gaudens (a world renowned sculptor) who created the $20 gold piece.
Is the ring pictured anywhere on PG, Newberry?

What a wonderful wedding gift and a beautiful bride! Congratulations on the sweet addition to your family!

newberry - Awesome ring!!!
Thank you for liking my ring. We were just a two young girls drinking tequila and chasing boys when she designed it. And oh boy if that ring could talk the stories it could tell ;)
You're a tequila drinker? I would not have guessed that!
