Pearls for Mother's Day Part 2: Gifts from $100- $250

As promised, here are some options for Mother's Day for those of you who want to spend a little more than $100 on the moms in your life (or if you want someone else to step their game up for you!).  Check it out!!

(If you are looking for options under $100, click here.)

Are you looking for a necklace? I came across some really fly necklaces- not your traditional white pearls.

While perusing the Premium Pearl website, I stopped in my tracks when I came across this beautiful Tahitian pearl necklace. MY LORD!! I can stare at this all day- mesmerizing, isn't it?! This is a 9-10mm black Tahitian pearl on a 14k white gold chain. This AAA quality necklace is 16in. The cost is $240. MUST HAVE!!

Or what about these hot 7.0-8mm black and white freshwater pearl necklaces that I found at Pearls of Joy? Check out the three different options! They were originally $175 but are on sale for $148.75! HOT HOT HOT!! (FYI This is AA+ grade- if you want to upgrade to AAA, add $90- still under $250!)

I also went searching for Mastoloni pearls on the Solomon Brothers website. I was looking for something a little unexpected. Here's what I found:

This is a sterling silver, three strand multi-color keshi freshwater pearl necklace. $135 (What are keshi pearls? According to Mastoloni pearls:  The name Keshi comes from the Japanese word for poppy seed.  Keshi usually refers to larger "chance" pearls (up to 10mm), created in giant Pinctada oyster shells. Often highly iridescent, their shapes are intriguing and irregular).

Ok, let me preface this by saying OMG!!! This is a 7-7.5mm CHOCOLATE Mastoloni freshwater pearl necklace. I love, love, love chocolate pearls! $220.

I couldn't leave out the traditional white pearls. I found this white Akoya pearl necklace at Pure Pearls for $217. The pearls are 6.0-6.5mm.

Looking for something for mom's ears?

What about some black Akoya pearl and diamond studs? They were originally $199 but are on sale for $159.20 at Pearls of Joy.

Or I also like these white freshwater hoop pearl earrings (also come in peach/pink and lavender). They were originally $109 but are now on sale for $92.65 also at Pearls of Joy.

At Pure Pearls, I found these black Tahitian Baroque Pearl Dangle Earrings. Cute, right?? $230.

What about a set? Looking for the whole shebang? A necklace, bracelet and earrings for mom? Pearls of Joy has a lavender pearl set (also available in pink/peach or multicolor) that was originally $235 on sale for $199.75.

I hope some of my ideas help... Some of you might want to send this post in email form to your husbands, I know I am!!!

All in all, there are some great sales going on for Mother's Day and there are a gazillion options! Whatever you do, just make it special for that mom in your life!...Besos, P&P.
