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.
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.
For our first interview in this series, I had the pleasure of talking to Cynde Newberry. She's a long-time friend and customer whose visits we always really enjoy. Luckily for all of us, she brought in some of the breathtaking pieces from her collection that she describes in her interview...
