If I can stick my two cents in….I loved receiving the strand of pearls my (former) husband had bought me. Pearls are classic and timeless. I still get compliments when I wear them.
Over at Amazing Pearl you can receive a deep discount and they are now running a 10% off special just for Valentine's Day.
There are many types of pearls: freshwater, cultured and akoya.
Akoya Cultured pearls are the most sought after because of their luster and nearly perfect round shape. This makes it easy to match if buying a necklace and want bracelets and earrings to go with it. Usually white or cream colored, but you can find them with a hue of rose or silver.
They are cultured in the Pinctada fucata martensii, also known as the akoya oyster.
Amazing Pearl buys directly from the most reliable pearl farm in China.
Freshwater pearls seem to be more affordable and range in color: white, black, pink and lavender. A necklace can cost from $65 - $96. Amazing Pearl offers matching bracelets and earrings as well.
If you make a purchase at Amazing Pearl, you will receive free US priority shipping, the best value, high AAA and AA+ quality, free appraisal that comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and an elegant gift box for presentation.
Whether you may consider a gift of pearls for Valentine's Day or another special occasion, be sure the woman in your life will appreciate it.
