Pearls are a girls new best friend⁉️

Jewellery just can’t stay out of the news this week and for a good reason. Last night, Jewellery belonging to France's most famous Queen Marie Antoinette fetched $32 millions dollars at auction in Geneva.

If anyone thinks Pearls are a little too “traditional”, just think it was Marie Antoinette, who said “There is nothing new except what has been forgotten.” And it looks like she was right!

The pearls had not been seen in public for 200 years and the sale had been described as one of the most important royal jewellery auctions in history. One of the centre pieces for this collection was a necklace with 119 natural pearls, shown in the first image. Wow! 😮

Pearls are universally flattering, they bring light to the face and look great with any outfit! So, why not add a new best friend(s) to you jewellery collection today? ✨
