What Do You Recommend for a Jewelry Gift?

Hi Joe, that's easy, give her a nice string of pearls, a set of pearl earrings, a ring with pearls or a vintage pearl pin.  I like pins because I can use them on a blouse, sweater, coat or hat.

Pearls are a reminder that life's aggravations can become a thing of beauty. The beautiful result of nature’s design, a pearl is generated by one irritating grain of sand. 

Just as pearls come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, so do life's trials.  We create our own beauty from the tragedies of our lives but often do not see it. Pearls are a nice way to remind someone of what is beautiful in life.
