We all have a favorite pearl jewelry piece....right?

Show us a photo and tell us all about your pearl jewelry. Don't forget all the juicy details of where, when, who, and why the piece is special to you.

Here's one of my favorites. I actually have two favorites, a freshwater pearl lavender rope and this one that I designed one night when I couldn't sleep. I used a basic 6-7mm pearl necklace as a foundation and added vintage emerald green pearl buttons surrounded by small pearls and attached them thickly over the whole necklace.....sorry, it's not for sale. Vintage shank pearl buttons were made and dyed here in Muscatine, Iowa and are quite rare, especially in this vivid emerald green color, which remind me of emeralds making this necklace very "Queenly" in appearance.

My arm could be twisted to make you one with black vintage pearl buttons, though, if you also find this a stunning piece.
