The Light Side of Daring Black Pearls

Mysterious, sultry, glamorous. This is the unique combination daring black pearls make. Classic white pearls are a perennial favorite. Fun and bright yellow pearls are happiness to any outfit. Girly pink pearls are as yummy as the frosting on a cupcake. Black pearls are the lone stepchild in the pearl family but they are undoubtedly exotic and captivating. While the most special of these black beauties are from Australia, Tahitian pearls are also exquisite. Black pearls come in cost-conscious varieties too; dark freshwater pearls abound and man-made ones are an option too. With a range of offerings, anyone can afford the mystique of black pearls. Do you dare? Here are my top picks.

MIZUKI 16-inch Brown Polysilk Necklace With One Tahitian Pearl, $530, available here.

WHen I got married, my husbands aunt gave me a strand of black pearls with a matching bracelet. I loved it then and I still love it.

The only one I'd wear would probably be the last one, the rest kind of look a bit clumpy to me.
