Diamonds all the way! Like pearls, but since the whole issue with it on high school girls, made me less inclined to it. Besides, even with the smallest diamond pendant, you can glam up any outfit!

Both seem somewhat unethical- the diamonds because they come at such a cost to those who mine them and the pearls because it's just plain cruel to torture those little creatures by deliberately placing an irritant in their shell! I prefer some aventurine or lapis any day.

i said diamonds, but i'm a sucker for anything shiny!! pearls can also be done tastefully at any age...i do love how young and fresh black pearls look.

Seriously - how many people know how to properly grade diamonds? They're the result of clever marketing by a cartel that, if it was a cartel within the bounds of the US jurisdiction, would be seriously hunted down by the government. Before diamonds it was traditional to give a girl her birthstone. Mine's ruby (but I like peridot better). Pearls are beautiful, but unless you can afford Paspaley then they can look a little cheap. How about antique jewellery with the beautiful baroque pearls and seed pearls and other precious stones?

I like both, but as Holly Golightly said about diamonds in Breakfast at Tiffany's, "I think they're divine on older women, but I don't think they'd be right for me. You do understand."

I prefer more natural elements like wood or metals that have not been tumbled so they are not very shiny. I like pearls if they are in very small quantities but as for diamonds i am not very fond of them at all
