Between pearls and diamonds, sometimes it’s hard to tell which is a girl’s best friend. Pearls have been used to adorn women from ages past. From the early Roman & Egyptian era to the 20s (anyone say Great Gatsby) with the iconic Coco Chanel or Queens and to modern day, it is obvious pearls have come a long way and have no intentions of going anywhere from fashion and vaults of the extremely wealthy.
