Ross-Simons Pearl Necklace Giveaway

Phyllis Giveaway 327 Comments

I just love it when one of our advertisers decides it’s time for a giveaway on The Ribbon In My Journal. Ross-Simons has been a well-loved jeweler for more than 60 years. With designer jewelry collections and couture straight from the runway, Ross-Simons has dazzled generations with its amazing selection and great prices. I love how their pieces combine modern, beautiful design with traditional elegance.


Freshwater pearls are quite possibly the most versatile pearls as they come in every conceivable color, size, and shape. The beautiful necklace that Ross-Simons has provided for our wonderful giveaway is a Pearl Torsade (pictured at top). This 18-inch strand is designed with hundreds of near-round 5-6mm cultured freshwater pearls and closes with a sterling silver clasp.

  1. I love pearls because it reminds me of the comment in the Bible , “the pearl of great price” referring to the kingdome of heaven. It would be wonderful to have a pearl to wear.

  2. Pearls – what can I say – a dream to own and the ultimate piece of jewelry to wear – how wonderful it would be to win such an exquisite necklace.

  3. Is there anything more beautiful. Pearls were Coco Chanel’s signature accessory. They were classic then and will continue to be for years to come.

    A must in every woman’s wardrobe.

  4. Post
    1. I am a Southern lady to the core, having been born and residing in Virginia for 62 years. I am a believer in keeping the old traditions – never wear white until after Memorial Day, stop wearing white after Labor Day (unless it is cream or beige), always have iced tea to serve to guests and, of course, wear pearls – the must have signature piece for all Southern ladies. I love Southern Lady because it celebrates the traditions and introduces new nuances to vintage customs. By the way, my family have been Virginians since 1637 and I am directly descended from the Moores of Yorktown, VA – the Moore house is where Cornwallis surrendered to Gen. Washington. Moores then married Carters, Anne Carter being the maiden name of Robt. E. Lee’s mother. So, I would certainly wear these pearls with pride for the great Commonwealth of Virginia.

  5. How beautiful. The legacy of the South in one classic piece of jewelry. My mother is 84 and has just completed radical surgery. chemo, and radiation for breast cancer. All without one word of complaint. She has raised 5 children with grace under pressure and had, and still has, time for each of us. I would be so honored to present her with this awesome treasure!

  6. I’d love to win this beautiful necklace. It would be perfect with the dress I am wearing to a wedding in June! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

  7. This is such a beautiful necklace and so different from any that I own. It would be wonderful to win and to wear at a wedding I am attending in AUgust this year.

  8. Lovely. I remember being told once that sputhern ladies love pearls most of all because they are created by putting something lovely to cover something that was initially an irritation. And because over time, just like a southern belle they become more beautiful reflecting the warmth of the wearer. I love the new pearls that my husband gave me last year but I love most of all the single strand he gave me when we were first married. They hold the memories of our marriage.

  9. If I were so fortunate as to win this lovely necklace, I would give it to my hero. My mother just turned 81 years of age yesterday. She is my 84 year-old father’s caregiver. She suffers from illness herself, but she never complains. She cares for him and for every member of our family with such grace. Perseverance in little things, for Love, is heroism. She is my hero.

  10. When my daughter received her Masters degree from NYU, while working full time, expecting her first child and then caring for it, and going to school at night, four long years, I gave her a single pearl necklace, it was the most I could afford but she is a pearl of great price and I wanted her to know how much I loved her.
    Last month, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy with reconstruction, She is only 44 years old and they had just moved back to the western United States from New Jersey. This terrible thing has been very hard on both her and her husband, but they are trying their best to live through it. Without too many tears. If I should be gifted with this necklace, I would give it to her as a sign of hope, that God can take something beautiful from the dark of the sea, and so He will do with her now. And bring her back to great joy and happiness. May God bless you both, Phyllis and Ross-Simons. Thank you so much.

  11. Pink pearls… feminine and beautiful. I’ve always thought that if I had a lovely piece of jewelry, it would be pearls! I look forward to each The Ribbon In My Journal post as it adds a bit of beauty to my day. Thank you Phyllis.

  12. From one Phyllis to another what an absolutely beautiful necklace. They have such wonderful items. Thank you for this opportunity to possibly own such a pretty piece of jewelry.

    PS. I have never seen the name Phyllis appear so many times…I have know very few Phyllis’. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.

  13. We love pearls at our house. My husband and two of my daughters have birthdays in June. All of us absolutely love this necklace.

  14. Joy ohhh Joy!!! Pearls are my favorite of all!! For me, they are always “in style” no matter your age, no matter waht you are wearing! Class, just plain and simple!

  15. I do declare, those pearls are gawgeous! As my Granny Pearl used to teach me, “A loooovely string of pearls is aaalways a wonderful addition to a lady’s wardrobe Mawgret”

  16. Exquisite is the only word for this necklace. Exquisite is how one would feel when wearing it. Thank you, Phyllis

  17. Our family has shopped Ross Simon for years. Beautiful necklace, if I were to win, would give it to my daughter who has become quite the Southern Lady Professional. At such a young age, she realizes that true beauty is not just pretty on the outside, but pretty on the inside first. So proud of her.

  18. Phyllis~What a lovely collection to share with your readers. Now in my 60’s and still working, this collection would be a wonderful gift for a dear friend who is turning 80 this year. Having contracted polio 20 years ago in a one in a million medical situation, she is such a role model for me. Her “Can DO” attitude and gracious approach to life reminds me every day how precious our health and our life is. Being in gratitude for all the things she can still do and keeping her twinkle bright is a gift to many of her friends. Thank you for your inspiring publications and sharing of ideas to
    make each day a beautiful one. Fondly, Margaret

  19. These Pearls can be such a beautiful accent to any outfit or they can certainly make a statement on their own. Casual, Work, Church or a black tie affair!! I promise I will wear them and not just for a special occasion!! I will let everyone know I got them from you!! Thank you! Carmell

  20. Pearls make a woman feel feminine. I think that part of us gets lost in our day to day responsibilities. We take care of everyone else, but forget to take care of ourselves. I think we should celebrate being female and this beautiful string of pearls would certainly do the trick!

  21. True Southern girls LOVES PEARLS and I am one of those girls and would absolutely enjoy wearing such a gorgeous strand of pearls. I just recently bought a pair of pearl earrings and this will be a perfect match. Beautiful pearl necklace!

  22. Nothing is as special and timeless as pearls and the memory of al the great women before us in our lives who have worn pearls. I to desire to be part of that legacy in my family tree.

  23. I’ve read alot of comments here. Some really great stories. Pearls just make you happy. You feel elegant wearing them. All these comments are a testament to this wonderful blog that Phyllis Hoffman DePiano is doing. I can’t wait each week to see the blogs. They make you happy reading too.

  24. Tweeted! These would be lovely to wear now…then to pass on to my 11 girl when she is old enough to appreciate and wear them. Thank you for the chance!

  25. Pearls are a jewel that bring me fond memories of my Mom. Baroque Pearls were her favorite and this necklace reminds me of the many times she and my Dad dressed up to attend a military function. Dressing up was an art those many years ago!

  26. This necklace is beautiful. I have a pair of pearl earrings and I wear them all the time. Next to my wedding ring, they are the best jewelry I own. I would love to have this necklace.

  27. Oh My, what memories this post brought. Like a string of pearls; like a flood of family moments, all marked in significance because we thought they were moments that were significant enough to wear our pearls. My first pearls were Ross-Simons.

    My grandmother took me to Hartzfelds, a lovely store on the Plaza in Kansas City. It was my first time shopping like an adult. We lunched together first in the tea room and then after strolling the departments I watched as dress after dress was brought out by a saleswoman who had set them aside for an occasion, my 16th birthday party. These dresses had been hand picked by the saleswoman at my grandmother’s direction. After choosing the perfect dress, we went to the jewelry department where she declared “you must wear pearls, dear. We all wear our pearls for such important moments in our lives.” Then she guided my choice to a perfect Ross-Simons strand that carried me through the first half of my life.

    Now my daughter has those pearls, which I gave her when she went through her white coat ceremony at her entrance to medical school. She wears them often as the connection to her great great grandmother. And now, I would love to give Ross-Simons pearls to my granddaughter…these would be perfect to carry her through her significant moments!
    Fingers and Toes crossed!

  28. My daughter-in-law, Amanda gave me three handsome grandsons. I would love to give her the pearl necklace for Mother’s Day.

  29. Beautiful necklace! Pearls, one of the seas’s beauties every woman should own and by a well known jeweler! How fortunate to have opportunity in this giveaway and winner will be very blessed to own such a piece.

  30. The jewelry designs are exquisite! I would love to win the beautiful pearl necklace! Thank you for offering such a unique prize and for your lovely blog, Phyllis!

  31. I love Ross-Simons. I ordered silver tableware from them eons ago, and even silver bracelets for my daughter’s about 20 years ago when they were in high school. You can feel confident in ordering from them because of their reputation and longevity……and they have beautiful things!

  32. My husband gave me pearls the Christmas before we were married, we have been married 54 years and I still wear them.

  33. Pearls have the most beautiful luster and looking at them is calming. When wearing them one feels so elegant. I love pearls.

  34. I am entering because winning would be a sign to help me through a difficult time…..and pearls are a special sign for me. Thank you.

  35. I shared your link on Facebook so others could see this beautiful necklace and have a chance to win it. There is going to be one LUCKY WOMAN win the necklace. I think I would wear it with my entire wardrobe and maybe even my night gown! Thanks for the opportunity to enter the sweepstakes.

  36. Hi, To see the pearl necklace when I opened my email was already a gift to my eyes, I love everything about it, beautiful, feminine and romantic, like me!

  37. This necklace is beyond beautiful! Years ago my husband gave me a pearl necklace for our anniversary after he’d heard me once say that every lady needs a pearl necklace in her life. Now my daughter is grown and about to embark on her own life as an independent young lady. If I were fortunate enough to win this lovely piece from Ross-Simons, this would be her “necessary” piece. This could celebrate her right of passage as a young lady who has come into her own and of whom we are so proud.

  38. What a privilege to get a chance to win these pearls! My favorite since I was a little child. The first ring my husband (my then boyfriend) ever gave me, and they are my birthstone. Another precious thing about them, they come from oysters, which was my sweet daddy’s favorite seafood. Love to win them! After all, Barbara Bush doesn’t need them.

  39. I shared this on Facebook earlier this afternoon. Pearls add elegance to any outfit. You can wear them with Jeans or in a wedding. Pearls are always appropriate. I will share them with my wonderful daughter Melissa Joy because she is a “Pearl Girl!”

  40. Pearls have always been my favorite jewelry. Forty eight years ago my husband gave me a pearl necklace as a wedding gift which I still wear often. Very recently I told him that I would love a multi-strand set of pearls. This necklace would be perfect! And I wear pearl earrings every day. Thank you for sharing with us.

  41. What a timeless piece; it’s so beautiful and would go with lots of things in my closet. Thanks so much for the giveaway which I shared on Pinterest.

  42. I would love to win these beautiful pearls for my Mom ,she will be 100 years young in May. I think she would look beautiful wearing something this special ! She has always been special to our family even without pearls !!! Good luck to all the entries !

  43. The number of responses clearly shows both the love of pearls and the popularity of this blog. Thank you. I also greatly appreciate an opportunity to enter the giveaway without use of social media, not all of us participate in those methods as hard as that might be to believe.

  44. OOH , It would be such a much needed lift to win the necklace – actually love any of the gorgeous pieces pictured here. What a nice giveaway!!

  45. What a dream to own!! Something so precious to enjoy. What woman wouldn’t be radiant with these on her neck. Pick me , please.
    And thank you for your generosity to think of your readers.
    Looking sooo forward to hearing from you….

  46. These are absolutely beautiful and my birthstone. Would really enjoy having them. Thank you for the opportunity to throw my name in the hat!

  47. The moment I saw them, the pearls instantly reminded me of both of my grandmothers who are not with me anymore. They are beautiful – so are the pearls.

  48. The pearls are simply beautiful. I would love to win the necklace. I don’t think I would take it off.
    Thank you for the chance to win and good luck to all.

  49. What a wonderful opportunity you are giving to a very blessed person. I would love to be the person to win this beautiful pearl necklace.

  50. Oh, I do LOVE pearls … thank you for the opportunity to enter to win this beautiful necklace! It is stunningly beautiful!

  51. My 29 year old daughter has just survived cervical cancer surgery,and has learned now that she needs surgery on her nose to be able to breathe correctly ,and also a procedure on the backside of her head to help alleviate constant headaches. She is a very caring full time nurse and works very hard. So far 2015 has been a really bad year for her,I would love to be able to give her such a lovely gift .I believe these beautiful pearls could make anyone feel special. Thanks for the chance .

  52. The pink pearls are absolutely beautiful. I don’t own any pearls and it would be wonderful own these to leave as an heirloom for my two granddaughters. My oldest granddaughter is five years old. When she was four I commented on a pearl bracelet that she was wearing. She told me that pearls are a girls best friend. I thought that was cute coming from a four year old. Thanks you for the chance to own such an exquisite piece of jewelry. Ross-Simons is a remarkable company. I also very much enjoy you blog and Southern Lady Magazine. I posted the pearls on Pinterest.

  53. Pearls! Brings the thoughts of my sweet, kind, loving grandma….

    She has many years ago, but seeing those beautiful pearls brought her vividly back to me!!

    Good luck choosing someone to receive them. My vote is for the Mom who said her daughter could use a lift or something like that. Sounds like a sweet caring Mom…. And someone who needs something to smile about.


  54. The Pearl is my birthstone. I have seen this ad many times and wished it was mine. Ross Simons has always
    had wonderful pieces, but I have not been fortunate enough to own any. I have my Mother’s pearls that my
    Dad brought her back from overseas during WWII but of course I am afraid to wear them. Winning these
    would be a great boost right now as my husband will be having surgery for cancer in 10 days. Ross Simons is
    so kind to be doing this, because The Ribbon In My Journal is so worthy. Thanks for sharing.

  55. Thanks for the opportunity to be so lucky to win this beautiful pearl necklace. Among traits of a “Southern Lady”, I always associated a pearl necklace. I may have been born in the Midwest, but in my heart, I have always been southern!

  56. I love pearls . When wearing them I know it means that I’m going to a special occasion – they are always classy . I don’t think I have any real pearls. My son is getting married in Jan. 2016. Wouldn’t these be special to wear?

  57. What a lovely strand of pink pearls, and kudos to the stylist & photographer for such a beautiful presentation! Thank you Phyllis & Ross-Simons for the opportunity to win such a wonderful piece of classic jewelry!

  58. Ross-Simons offers lovely jewelry. My dear husband has purchased several lovely things for me from them. The pink pearls are especially beautiful.

  59. What a beautiful, elegant, and stunning necklace. I have never seen pink pearls before. Thank you Ross Simon’s and Phyllis for this wonderful opportunity. I have never owned anything so beautiful before and would feel beautiful and honored to wear such an elegant necklace. Thank you for the chance.

  60. What girl doesn’t love a pearl(s)? A dainty little stud or marble sized on the ear? A single strand or many to adorn the neck or even opera length pearls tied in a knot? Or maybe even a little pearl bracelet and ring to match. I have a pretty little pearl ring that my fiancé purchased for me in Hawaii way back in 1970. Unfortunately the ring (eh hem) grew smaller. Not long ago I found a beautiful pearl bracelet ….can never wear it though. Every time I look at it I think the poor woman must be sad that she lost it. Maybe I should pass it forward…Well….whoever wins this ~ enjoy natures gift…

  61. The pearl necklace is elegant…the perfect accessory for tea time! My tea group and I eagerly look forward to each new issue of TeaTime Magazine and to your daily blog. So many beautiful tablescapes
    and wonderful recipes! .

  62. Dear Phyllis,
    You always have such beautiful things in your magazines and on your blog. I love pearls, always have and always will. I have collected pearl jewelry for many years and enjoy wearing my jewelry. I always feel elegant in pearls. I really hope I win, but if I do not, this necklace will certainly go on my Christmas list.
    Thanks for all you do.

  63. I love the classic beauty of pearls. It would be so wonderful t to win this beautiful necklace for my daughter who is going through a rough time right now.

  64. I have been wanting to get a string of pearls ever since I found out the one I had wasn’t real. For years I thought the pearls I had a friend get for me when she visited China were real, but sadly they were fakes. I would love to have real pearls.

  65. I wear pearl earrings, necklaces and bracelets more than the rest of my jewelry. These are stunning…and would definitely be handed down the generations.

  66. This is not a want, It is definitely a need!!! Even if I don’t win…I’ll print out the picture and just look at them. They are truly beautiful. Thank you for presenting them.They are a girls best friend.

  67. Be still my heart. Who wasn’t enchanted by the young and beautiful Jacqueline Kennedy? She was the picture of style and grace and never without her simple strand of pearls. I truly believe that pearls are the most important accessory in a woman’s wardrobe. Pearls are the only thing that can put the finishing touch on the little black dress. Wearing this lovely Ross-Simons Pearl Necklace would be the perfect reminder of all the timeless beauty, elegance and grace I have adored on each and every page of my most treasured and beloved Victoria.

  68. Thank you Ross and Simon for the wonderful opportunity, I would love to win it for my Sister since it is such a lovely shade and it is her favorite color.

  69. Stunning…..Classic…..Always in style! It is beautiful! It would make any dress perfect and the wearer feel grand. Thank you for the opportunity.

    1. I remember when I was 13 and swimming in a Minnesota lake one hot July. Another young girl in the water plunged down into the water and when she came up her hair was pulled back so that her ears could be easily seen. I saw her single pearl earrings sparkling in their white luster in the summer sun. I was stricken with their beauty. That was it for me. That’s what I wanted my ears to look like. I talked my parents into letting me get my ears pierced and trotted as soon as I could to our small town’s jewelry store where I bought my first pearls. Since that time, I’ve made several more trips to the jewelry store to replenish my pearls after losing one. Of course, the one pearl earrings were beautiful, but pearls look good in larger quantities as well! I went to prom in pearls. I graduated from college in pearls. I got married in my Grandmother’s pearls. Pearls, pearls, pearls, what else do I need? They’re simple and beautiful… charming and delightful.

  70. Pretty & classic pearls – love to wear them & have a pearl Ross Simons bracelet! Thanks – please enter me!

  71. What a beautiful necklace. The perfect accessory for the Spring season! Thank you for the chance to enter. Always enjoy your delightful blog!

  72. I was very ill last year and have now retired and am slowly really enjoying life again but honestly I would love to have the pearls simply because they are so beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win them. Peace.

  73. I drool over the Ross Simon catalog….and these pearls are gorgeous! Who would not want to win them? They are beautiful!

  74. I would love to win this beautiful pearl necklace. I have ordered from Ross-Simonds for many years and know how lovely their jewelry is!

  75. I shared this on Facebook. Pearls add so much to any outfit . I would love to own t so that I could share it with my beautiful daughter Melissa Joy who us a “Pearl Girl.

  76. Roses and Pearls are truly two beautiful treasures of life! The Ross-Simmons pearl collection have always been pieces of art. I do not own any of their pearls but I have friends who did and I have always admired them.

  77. The Ross-Simons Pearl Torsade necklace is just dreamy. And the perfect versatile length. I would be so pleased to show off such a beautiful creation! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

  78. I love your blog and look forward to your posts. I bookmark this necklace in the Ross Simons catalog every time I get it, but would never spend the money on myself. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  79. For many years now I have been wearing pearl stud earrings, They are a very classic look that never goes out of style. That necklace sure would be a beautiful piece to win as pearls are a timeless and classic look that are always in style.

  80. I shared on pinterest and I would love to win this necklace because it’s a beautifully timeless piece that would be amazing to won and wear.

  81. This pearl necklace is beyond beautiful and elegance. It is so gorgeous and classic just like my Mother whom I would give it to because she is so deserving.

  82. Pearls always remind me of my grandmother, a poor Irish immigrant, who endured with grace, many hardships. She saved her pennies for years to buy a tiny strand of “real” pearls. Like the oyster who wraps the grain of sand in luminous beauty, her life was an illustration of creating beauty out of adversity. This necklace would be worn with her memory in mind.

  83. I would love to give this stunning necklace to my daughter. The pearls would adorn her neck with outward beauty as the kindness and truth of her character adorn her with inner beauty.

  84. I believe Laurene Shewan, the first person on the comment list,needs this necklace more than anyone else! The necklace is beautiful! As it is my birthstone, I am very fond of pearls!!!,

  85. I like jewelry of all kinds and styles, but pearls are my favorite. So feminine and classic. I wear pearl earrings practically everyday. Thank you for the opportunity to win this beautiful necklace and blessing us with timeless elegance.

  86. Upon seeing this beautiful pearl necklace, my first thought was . . . my daughter. She loves pearls; but at this stage in her life (married, early 30’s, homeowner), pearls have to wait. This necklace would be perfect for her. Ah, well, we can dream . . .

  87. My mother taught me early in life that pearls go with everything. Every time I wear pearls I’m reminded of my mother and that is guaranteed to make me smile.

  88. After having a double mastectomy last month, without reconstruction, I am rethinking tops and necklines. This beautiful necklace would certainly draw focus to my neck and face instead of my chest! I’d even wear it to chemo treatments to spruce up the place.

  89. As we get older, looking in the mirror gets much harder; these sparkling pearls would bring the brightest smile!

  90. Since I have a June birthday, pearls are my birthstone, and I would love to win this lovely necklace. How kind of Ross-Simons to offer a necklace to a lucky one of us!

  91. BEAUTIFUL necklace and the perfect gift for my Mom who will be turning 95 years young soon. Would love to wrap this gift of beauty and present her with such an amazing token of enduring devotion!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win this for her as she has been my inspiration through life!!!

  92. What a beautiful piece of jewelry! Thank you Ross-Simons for the opportunity to win such a treasure! I hope I might be lucky enough to win!
    Barbara W.

  93. i shared on Pinterest under my Happiness board. The jewelry is beautiful, especially the pearl necklace. I am a southern girl and nothing says southern like a beautiful pearl necklace.

  94. When asked if I like pearls. I answer “yes please!” I own a couple lovely necklaces. But nothing like this one!

  95. I adore pearls!!!! I love the simple grace and elegance they bring to everything a woman wears. Pearls acquire a certain glow around a lady’s neck that no other jewelry can reflect.

  96. Oh my gosh, so beautiful. My husband and I travel to Japan, in 2007. Coming home my luggage was cut opened and I lost my pearls, I would this, it may not be exactly what I lost but I would love to. Replace with this beauty.

  97. The picture immediately brought the vision of retreating surf at the sea shore.
    I shared this on my facebook page where I communicate with lost/found animal groups. This will brighten up their day.
    Many thanks!

  98. I would love to win this set of pearls for my mother in law. She recently found out that the pearls left to her by her sister were not real and it was quite a huge disappointment to her. This would certainly make a most memorable mothers day for her!

  99. Pearls make the everyday full of ‘grace.’ One can wear pearls with jeans, a gown or even shorts. I would love to win this pearl necklace – it epitomizes abundance and would be the feng shui item for a rockin body.

  100. What a lovely gift these pearls would be! Would love to win! Thank you Phillis and RS for the opportunity to receive such a gift.

  101. My sister-in-law’s jewelry was stolen from her home last year and she is trying to replace some things that were

  102. Since my mother’s name was Pearl and she was a wonderful woman, Pearls have always been special to me. I love these pearls, they just glow. Please thank Ross-Simmons for this generous giveaway.

  103. My mother had one very similar to this one. I would love to have this to wear in her honor and memory. Thanks for the memory.

  104. Just like the ribbon marks your page in your journal pearls mark life events and remind of how precious life is everyday. Nothing says Southern elegance better than a woman wearing pearls. I treasure a small stand of my mom’s Who was a true southern lady and would love to wear and pass on this elegant necklace to my granddaughter. Thank you RS and Phyllis for this great opportunity.

  105. Pearls have always been my jewelry of choice. I wear them for special occasions as well as for casual – even with denim. I am a true pearl lover. This Ross-Simons necklace is gorgeous!

  106. You can’t be a truly southern girl without your pearls! And I don’t have any like these. Would love to win and wear these.

  108. This is a stunning necklace, with timeless appeal. It would make a lovely heirloom to pass along, after enjoying it all your life. I would enjoy this necklace so much, and it would be a wonderful pick-me-up. I am ill and spend time in the hospital or mostly homebound. I still enjoy wearing my jewelry, though, because it’s cheerful. I enjoy your blog, because it reminds me of the beauty in life. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  109. I don’t know if this is the exact look of the necklace that’s being given away…. But, I love the peachy-pink shade of the pearls, and how they are different shapes and sizes; it adds unique dimension.

  110. “After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
    ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

  111. Being in ministry I’ve always worn pearls because they are so classic, never a trend. I’ve been called the modern day June Cleaver because I’m rarely seen without pearls.

  112. I would be tickled pink to win this stunning necklace. Pearls are timeless and the ultimate in femininity. This piece is just lovely.

  113. Beautiful necklace and RS is a very reputable company providing affordable jewelry. This necklace is a beauty! Would love to win this!

  117. Pearls are my favourite jewelry accessory! From jeans to dress up they make me feel wonderful! From classic to fun they always look great!


  118. I absolutely love pearls- especially small ones. My aunt used to give me a tiny pearl every birthday and Christmas to add to a necklace when I was a child, until she passed away. I still have the beautiful little necklace that I am saving for a granddaughter (hopefully) someday! Pearls are a treasured heirloom.

  119. Pearls are my favorite accessory! I wear some sort of pearl jewelry every day combined with sterling silver. This necklace would be a perfect addition to my collection.

  120. I’m always in pearls…the only earrings I wear! So classic, so charming…so southern! I would love to add this necklace to my earrings for the perfect spring look with a bright sheath dress.

  121. Husband has been hospital for 9 days now and has been very stressful. This would be a great way to celebrate how God has blessed me to let him live to see another day and hopefully go home soon.

  122. Beautiful. My granddaughter , Lyndsey, is getting married soon. I’d love to win them for her to wear on her wedding day.

  124. What a beautiful necklace. I have a royal blue blouse that is in need of an accent like this. This piece is stunning and timeless. My love of jewelry I got from my mom — wonderful memories.

  125. I rarely leave home without wearing something pearl. Many times it is a one strand pearl bracelet paired with a gold bangle. It makes even a jean and t-shirt outfit more feminine! Thank you so much for this blog celebrating the beautiful things in life! I look forward to opening it each time! The pearl necklace is stunning and would love to have them to celebrate my 20th cancer-free year!
