According to an article I recently posted on my information site at DESIGNER VINTAGE JEWELRY , "of all the pieces of jewelry in the world, a pearl necklace is the only thing a woman should not be without". If that is true, then it puzzles me that the few pieces of pearl jewelry we offer in our DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY SHOP at Ruby Lane take as long as they do to find a buyer. 

Have pearls fallen out of favour with today's women? Are pearls just not fashionable enough? Do women feel they are only suited to special occasions? 

As I look at the exquisite pieces we have, like this incredible pearl ring below, the likes of which I've never seen, I am so totally blown away by the beauty of that single 11.4mm South Sea Pearl that isn't overshadowed even by the 1.69cts of diamonds set around it. Yes, the diamonds glitter and catch your eye, but it's the creamy rose flawless pearl that is breath-taking. Oh if you could only see this one with your own eyes, as we do, instead of on a screen. As good as our photos are, they cannot capture what our eyes do. No wonder one of the most frequent comments we hear from buyers when their purchases arrive is how much more beautiful the piece is than our photos showed. 

And just look at this ring from the side: there are diamonds running down the side of the band as well as set around the pearl. Such a stunning mount! Little wonder this one recently appraised at $9550. It's a rare ring indeed!

If you watch the video above, you'll see the wide reach and appreciation that famous women and celebrities have of pearls ... and we're not just talking about back in the days of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Some of today's most gorgeous women choose pearls for the final touches on their wardrobes. Look at Jennifer Lopez below: 

Does Divine Finds Jewelry have a string of pearls for you? Of course we do:

We have a RARE, antique 2 strand necklace of both natural and cultured South Sea pearls that comes with a GIA graded pearls report. The clasp contains 3 brilliant diamonds. The necklace dates to the period between 1895 - 1905 and weighs 21.10 grams. This is such a rare and very divine find. We are always amazed at how much natural pearls go for at the high end estate auctions we attend e.g. a set of natural pearl earrings sold for $80,000, far surpassing auction expectations. Well, in this necklace, there's a full strand of natural pearls. Need I say more?

And of course, few bracelets adorn a wrist as beautifully as a pearl bracelet. We have one of those for you too! The cultured pearl and 14k gold bead bracelet below has a fabulous double ram's head diamond clasp. Dating to the 1970's but perfect for today, it's unique and oh so classy! 

Enjoy the video above which is set to the wonderful old song, "String of Pearls" (of course!) and if you want to know more about pearl jewelry, which, by the way, should be worn and not kept in box so that our own body oils help the pearls retain their lustre, you can read that article I referenced above AT THIS LINK.  But first of all, click on the photos or links above to go directly to these lovely pearl pieces in our  DIVINE FINDS JEWELRY SHOP so you can see more photos and join the ranks of other beautiful women who value pearls. You'll be in good company: Lady Di, Sophia Loren, Michelle Obama, Oprah ...
