Day 239: Something Beautiful—Tahitian Black Pearls

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

Pearls—the mark of style and sophistication. Polish and elegance. Why they popped into my head this morning, I don’t know. But I have always loved them, even before the were stunning colored varieties on the market. But I went hunting for milky white antique and found these rare dusky Tahitian pearls. I loved the strands and still do. White pearl rings never held much appeal with their dainty settings on curved prongs. But this one. I would have this one. The setting is bold, curved and suits the unusual standout. I am not much for diamonds but, again, on this piece they are magnificent. Dark, lustrous, and exotic. Foncé, brillant et exotique.

    When I am shopping and see beautiful jewelry, I always think of you and ask. WWDB? What would Donna buy?
