It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.
It is always interesting to know what men think about women’s fashion. From what they wear to how they wear it, men can actually be helpful to developing a woman’s style. So we were completely in awe to know that men have many views on women in pearls. Their view point goes from seeing a lady of class and sophistication to being super-HOT and very SEXY! That’s right, men find women sexy and seductive in pearls.
We had the amazing opportunity to speak with fashion stylist, Andre Freeland about men and their conception of women, sexiness and pearls.
Hello Ms. Elitou! I was given my Grandmother’s pearls as an anniversary gift and I want to make them look as new as I can. I want to polish them with toothpaste like my other jewelry but I am not sure if they would be safe if I did that. What are your thoughts?
Hi Aliza! Thank you for reaching out! I am very happy that you asked this question because I believe many have the same thought when it comes to cleaning pearls.
The answer is NO! It is very important to not use toothpaste on pearls, turquoise, vintage Bakelite, or vintage rhinestones, because they have softer surfaces and may get scratched.
