I’ve been keeping a secret since April, and if you know me, I tell everything I know. Keeping this secret has been so hard on me, but I can finally tell all of you about the jewelry I’ve found that is timeless, classic, and modern all at the same time.

I’ve always loved pearls! It doesn’t matter if they are real, faux, freshwater, or baroque; they all have a place in my heart and my jewelry box. Pearls are timeless and classic and can be an heirloom passed down from generation to generation. I love the freshwater and baroque pearls because they are also modern looking. They invoke a sense of fun and whimsy, and when paired with leather, they have a boho vibe. Wearing pearls makes me feel classy, dressy, and elegant. I wore the outfit above (old and no longer on the website) to a lovely restaurant. When I had finished eating, this woman sitting across the room got up and walked over to me. She said, “I couldn’t leave without telling you how elegant you look. When you walked into the restaurant, I told my husband I had to find out about your jewelry.”

I told her about my pearls, and now I can finally tell you. I love wearing my pearls (c/o FWP), so I took them with me on my trip to Belize in April. Because of inventory issues, I didn’t want to show them to you when you couldn’t purchase them yourself. So, every photo I took with my pearls has been hidden until now. The great part is since you’ve been waiting so long, The Freshwater Pearl Co. has agreed to give my readers 15% off their purchase until the end of the month. Since the holidays are quickly approaching, this would be the perfect time to do your shopping. There is something for everyone at all different price points. Since pearls are trending, you can purchase something for your daughters, DILs, granddaughters, etc., and they will love them. Remember to use the code TANIA15 at checkout, and receive free shipping in the US if your purchase is $50+

The Freshwater Pearl Company has gorgeous, high-quality jewelry, but that isn’t what attracted me to this company. When I talked to the company’s owner on the phone and found out his story, I was all in. He created this company as a way for him to honor his mother and keep her legacy alive after she lost her battle with breast cancer.

October is the perfect month for this collaboration since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The low inventory supply might have been blamed for my having to postpone my post since April, but I think it was divine intervention. I went for my yearly checkup last week, and they asked when was the last time I had a mammogram. Because of COVID, it had been several years, so we set me up to get a call from the mammography department. It turns out that almost everyone has gone without a mammogram for several years, so they are swamped. I couldn’t get an appointment until January of 2023. If you haven’t gotten a recent mammogram, you might want to call them now to get on the calendar.

The sparkle and shine of the beads and the iridescent sheen of the pearls show you the craftsmanship of this jewelry.

This company also believes in giving back. “With big hearts and abundant hope, we’re dedicated to donating 2% of ALL sales to pioneering cancer centers on the leading edge of research, treatment, care, and the race for a cure.”

My two favorite items are the Pearl Lariat Necklace and the Baroque Pearl Charm Bracelet! These should be on your Christmas wish list for yourself! Send this post to your husband and tell him Tania made you do it. Lol!

I am all about versatility, and I found so many ways to style the necklace. I have several photos where I’m wearing the necklace differently, but this video shows how I achieved those looks better.

The Nile bracelet is so pretty. When I wear this bracelet, it always gets compliments. The pearls are 14-15mm, and the bracelet has a removable pendant that you can hang on a necklace.

I’m wearing the white version of the Nile Bracelet, but it is also available in Natural, Silver, and Dark Grey. The dark grey might be on MY Christmas list; I think the color and sheen are gorgeous.

Wearing the Lariat necklace like this is perfect for open or low-back dresses, plus it looks elegant on this black dress. You can decide how long you want the necklace to hang by adjusting the length of the necklace in the front.

The Julie – Long Multi-Strand Suede Freshwater Pearl Necklace is perfect for fall! This tan suede necklace will go with all your fall outfits and elevate them to another level. I like the high/low lengths of this necklace and the variation in color of the pearls.

I wore the Long Multi-Strand Suede Pearl Necklace when I was in Nashville last week, and it looked great with my western boots.

The Kathy is perfect for those who like a shorter necklace. This length is great for a v-neck or round neckline since it fills that space beautifully.

I like wearing the two necklaces together for a layered look. One of the best features of the Freshwater Pearl’s jewelry is that they are easy to put on and take off. These necklaces have a magnetic closure, which is perfect for anyone struggling with tiny clasps.

The clasp snaps together effortlessly and pulls apart easily when you are ready to take the necklaces off.

I love the baroque shape of these earrings. They look fabulous with a dress or jeans; that is the beauty of pearls!!! If you prefer a more traditional form, then you might like the Amaya Stud Earrings.

These necklaces are a Best Seller. Like me, everyone loves wearing them in multiples. I am gifting these Sierra – Seed Bead and Freshwater Pearl necklaces this year for Christmas. My granddaughters will love them, and I have a few friends I want to gift these to. The Freshwater Pearl Co believes that “pearls should be accessible to everyone at a reasonable price. From a relaxed day on the beach to evening cocktails on the town, we defy the idea that pearls should be secreted away for safekeeping.”

To adjust these bracelets, you pull the cords to tighten or loosen them as needed. Look at the sheen of the dark grey…I really do need the Nile bracelet in that color!

If you ever need to dress up, then these two pieces are calling your name. There is something about pearls that makes me walk a little taller and more confident. This duo is elegant and understated, even though they are large pearls. I can see wearing these to a wedding, on a cruise, out to dinner, a holiday party, or the grocery store. Pearls are always appropriate.
