In Darwin nearly two years ago, we took a tour of a pearl and pearling exhibition. It was quite interesting but even after the tour, I still did not get pearls and the attraction they have for some.
The other night I looked at the Brighton Antique Dealer and the sun dawned. Around her neck was the most beautiful single string of pearls with matching earings. Maybe the lighting was just right, I don't know, but I now understand the beauty and lustre of pearls. She said she has three sets, one a double and Dame M gave her own away recently to her niece.
