Tuesday, June 25, was the pearl day in the City Club of Washington, DC! Beautiful pearls were presented by the Love the Pearls company. It was a real eye feast! Love the Pearls creates and sells high-end pearl jewelry using all different kinds of pearls – traditional white, mauve, and Tahitian. Lovely pearls, whose quality is compatible with those of major brands, are set in precious metals, such as silver and gold, and some of the pieces also have elegant diamond accents. We really loved seeing all this inspiring beauty and talking to the knowledgeable and very friendly company representatives. Although I am afraid that Ken’s attention at some point might got driven away by the tasty buffet snacks that were also available at the event :D.
I, of course, could not leave empty-handed :), that’s why I am now a proud owner of this lovely pearl pendant necklace (see picture above). The cultured white pearl is set in platinum-plated sterling silver. Needless to say, I love the necklace! It looks very similar to the one Ken gave me many years ago, during our happy time in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
Love the Pearls has events like this one all other the country; the company is originally from Texas. If they are in your area, I do recommend checking them out. Jewelry is beautiful, staff is friendly, and prices are very reasonable. For instance, my necklace was only about $100 and I also got a free pair of earrings as a gift. I am going to give earrings to my good friend though, as I have non-pierced ears.
For those of you who has never been to the City Club – it is a wonderful cozy private club located in the heart of DC in beautiful Colombia Square Building. It is a wonderful place to organize private events, such as weddings or receptions. Menu is delicious, and many dishes can be cooked according to your specifications. Ken has been a member for over 10 years now. City Club is a part of the Club Corp, which has locations in many cities, so chances are – there is a nice cozy place like this right where you live.
♥ Have a great week, girls and guys, and try to see (and get) as many beautiful things as you can! ♥
