Default Pearls - still okay?

Hello ladies!

I am wondering what your opinion on pearls is... I was talking to a friend about jewellery today, and she mentioned that she doesn't like wearing pearls (as in necklaces and bracelets) anymore, because they make her feel old She's 40 years old! Not sure how old I must look wearing them then

What do you all think? Yay or nay?

I don't associate them with being old at all. Pearls compliment all skin tones and to my mind are classy. If you've got 'em, wear 'em and enjoy them.

I adore pearls and I am 58. I have several pearl necklaces long ones, short single strand, three strands, pink pearls, grey pearls you name it I have got them. I adore pearl earrings as well.

My DD2 , who is just 28, loves her pearls. I bought her a small delicate set to wear at her wedding, and she has added to her collection over the last 5 years. The latest being a single strand from her Nan who recently passed away.
Personally I only have a pendant pearl. I think of a strand of pearl as a smart occasion item of jewellery, which sadly I don't go to many, these days.

I think pearls are very chic and sophisticated,especially with a smart outfit.I have a set that were my Mothers and wear them occasionally.For work I wear cheapish jewellery in case of breaking.

Sorry, I must be in the minority but I do not like pearls at all.

My Mam says if you give someone pearls, there will be tears. So she won't have them.
