Every girl needs a string of pearls. Actually, every girl needs a diamond or two, but who’s counting eh? 😉 Well, I like pearls. A long string of pearls or a pearl choker lends an air of elegance unrivalled by any other bling. Somehow, to me it screams “I don’t need bling to look glamorous!” and with pearls on, you don’t.
A nice string of pearls can be very pricey though so most times, I’m just looking and gawking at places like Mikimoto, but never daring to touch. However, one day, while my mom and I were doing a spot of shopping, we came across a Shinju Pearls counter at Isetan (The Gardens) where we saw a long string of pearls that caught our eye. It was exactly what we were looking for, and imagine our surprise when we saw that it only cost RM99 for the long strand.
Since we aren’t the sort with bottomless wallets, we thought RM99 for a long string of freshwater pearls that can be worn in any number of ways, was a great deal. We experimented with wearing it as a double strand, triple strand, knotted, tied with ribbon and worn as a choker … the possibilities were endless and limited only by your imagination! Ok, so you don’t wrap it around your wrist like it did, but yes, that’s all one strand of pearls 🙂
