Wishlist Wednesday: Black Pearls

Wednesday, November 4, 2009



I picked up this delightfully substantial, yet delicate black freshwater pearl ring in Phuket and I can't stop thinking about pearls. This is amusing to me because I've never considered myself a pearls and sweater set kind of girl. I have a set of modest white Japanese pearls that I wore to my first job out of college because I thought it was a requirement, and not because I was in love with the look. This ring was purchased in a little shopping village near our resort in Phuket, and when I first saw it in the display case, I thought it was kind of strange and organic looking, and maybe not my taste at all. But jewelry is one of those things that you have to try on for yourself, like many pieces of clothing. The moment I placed it on my finger, the delicate design, meant to mimic regional coral, became apparent to me. It was also apparent to me that I had to take home this exquisite souvenir...


My new acquisition on my admittedly dry and non-manicured hands. I'm curling my fingers under shamefully!

For this Wishlist Wednesday, here are a few black pearl pieces that I'm craving...


What's on your wishlist today?

Gorgeous ring, D! And loved the pics of the previous post! How I'd love to do a Thai cooking class in Thailand (should've thought of it when I was there, but I was too busy eating the food to cook any, haha, LOVE Thai food! In fact, made thai beef salad on Monday! :)

You can admit it! ;-)

Sher said...

don't think I could have passed up that ring either. I love having what no one else will have. So unique!

I have one black pearl necklace. And one set of silvers on a ring, that I would like to have reset as earrings instead.

San Francisco Stylephile said...

I know what you mean about the pearls. I've never thought of myself as a pearls girl, either. However: that ring is exquisite! I definitely see the coral, but it also kind of reminds me of a holly berry bush. :)
