As I recently examined a pearl necklace my mother left me, holding it up to my neck in the mirror, I thought: “Gosh, it’s too bad I will never, ever, wear this.”
But take note of what spiritual jewelery designers are doing with pearls today. There are other ways to mix and string pearls in longer strands to kick them out of their prim, conservative appearance. You don’t have to be strangled by them close to the neck.
So next time I’m feeling flush and frisky, I’ll just have my mother’s pearls restrung!
Pearls are said here to “amplify feminine lunar energy.”
It’s a nice old wives’ tale that the wearing of pearls helps infertile women get pregnant.
