“But pearls are for tears, the old legend says,” Gilbert had objected.
“I’m not afraid of that. And tears can be happy as well as sad. My very happiest moments have been when I had tears in my eyes — when Marilla told me I might stay at Green Gables — when Matthew gave me the first pretty dress I ever had — when I heard that you were going to recover from the fever. So give me pearls for our troth ring, Gilbert, and I’ll willingly accept the sorrow of life with its joy.”

Pearls are equal to elegance. However, recently they’ve gone through a bit of a rebrand and have come back looking pretty gothic and edgy. And that’s why pearls are awesome – fake or real they are true amplifiers of any given look. From Calvin Klein-like minimalism to Marie Antoinette’s jewellery box, pearls are/were/will be everywhere.
As captivating as the Mona Lisa is the Girl with the Pearl Earring. As classic as a diamond ring is a string of pearls. There is no match to the timelessness of pearls.
