I love love love the new Beauty and the Beast movie. One of the best parts, of course, is the Beast’s library, so I wrote “Belle Would Be Enchanted by These 10 Lovely Libraries in Hotels” for USA Today 10Best.Read All Entries
win a beautiful black pearl necklace from avalon pearls!
When Avalon Pearls invited me to choose a piece from their amazing selection to review and give away, I asked my mom which one she liked best. Always one to think outside the box, she chose the black pearl.
So, happy birthday, Mom! And happy day for one of you!
When you spend time on the Avalon Pearls website, you totally understand why so many stylish women are known for their quotes about pearls. “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls,” said Coco Chanel. “Pearls are always appropriate,” agreed Jackie Kennedy. And Lady Sarah Churchill admitted, “I feel undressed if I don’t have my pearls on. My pearls are my security blanket.”
Avalon Pearls jewelry is made from the best quality pearls which are certified by the Gem Institute of America, a grading system that guarantees the quality of the pearls. The best quality pearls are rated AAAA downward to A. The company makes sure that all pearls exceed the quality of their competition.
They also make sure they give back, and recently raised money for Charity Water. To me, this makes them, well, a gem of a company.
I’m always interested in learning the back story of a company, and Avalon, meaning apple, was the city where King Arthur first retrieved Excalibur, his legendary sword, and where he later went to heal his wounds from the famous battle of Cammlan. Avalon Pearls jewelry represents strength, courage, and perseverance.
Wearing that black pearl beauty would certainly give you confidence.
