Just like Mommies!

My grandmother was a firm believer that every little girl needed two things, nice shoes, and a string of pearls. Mind you when I was a little girl I refused to wear shoes, at least if it involved socks, and forget pearls as you could usually find me chasing some poor toad around the back yard.

I think as an adult Ive been making up for my lack of girlishness as a child and pearls were one of the first pieces of real jewelry I ever owned as an adult. I'm actually quiet jealous of the selection of little girl's pearls over at Moon River Pearls.

The one thing I do not have is a pair of white pearls, and I've always wanted a pair of white "tin cup" pearls. Which is a set of white pearls strung together with silver spacers. They were recently made popular by a movie with the same name, but I never saw it I just like the look. Moon River Pearls actually offers several variations on the "tin cup" look including a really nice set of white ones for only $78.00 which is a steal.

Though if your looking for a great gift for a little girl in your life, they offer the same "tin cup" style in pink for little girls at only $33.60 you can afford to give any little girl on your gift list her own pair of pearls!

I found the perfect necklace for myself over there as well, its simular to a tin cup necklace but instead it uses flat pearls on three strands. The triple strand coin pearl necklace would be just at home around your neck at a casual dinner in a tank top and skirt as it would be at a wedding. If anyone is looking to buy me a birthday present they know exactly where to find one. heh.

Shipping is always free at Moon River Pearls and all of their necklaces and earrings come with a free gift box.

Moon River Pearls was gracious enough to send us a pair of pink children's earrings to give away to one lucky reader.

All the jewlery was very pretty. I really liked the 4mm and 6mm White Pearl Stud Earrings. I wear earrings more than any other jewlery so I am always drawn to them.

HI, I just love the Pearl Earrings Elongated Teardrops. They are on the Front page. I'm gonna hint to my husband that they would make a great present for our next Anniversary. I love pearls. I have several pearl rings. My sister got me these pearl neclace from Las Vegas for my last Anniversary. My second choice would be the Black Pearl Set 3 pc. I just love Black pearl stuff.

I like the Double Strand White Pearl Bracelet (the best); the five strand black pearl is gorgeous alos!
The older I get, the more I appreciate pearls. Somewhere between childhood and motherhood, I failed to realize the inherit beauty in them. I am back though, back to really, really appreciating them!

A string of pearls was the first "big girl" jewelry I owned too :) My parents asked me what I wanted for my high school graduation present, and that's what I asked for. I knew it would be something I could wear for the rest of my life.

I love the White Pearl Anklet, I don't think I've ever seen a pearl anklet. And now I need one! lol
