Oh, the weather outside is getting frightfully chilly. When frost glistens across the green of the National Mall here in Washington, DC, one can be well assured that the holidays are upon us. The crisp air also signals that it is time to get serious about finding the perfect gift for that special someone. Whether married for decades or weeks, or courting for years or days, the holidays were made for sharing with someone dear. And what do you give that someone dear? We have it on good authority that Mrs. Claus and elegant ladies everywhere prefer pearls.
The most traditional gift of pearls is the simple luster of a pair of stud earrings – akoya being the classic pearl choice. But for those gentlemen who have been naughty or want to do something extra nice, a strand of pearls is most welcome under the tree. Strands may be composed of pearls from across the seas, like these perennial favorites:
The princess length, roughly 18 inches, is the drape most women prefer, but a strand may be designed to any particular tastes and wishes, with a specific pearl size or custom necklace length. Simply let Spey know and we’ll make you the hero of the holidays. Strands are appropriate for all ages and styles, as they may perfectly accompany any outfit or look, and transition seamlessly from the supermarket to the boardroom.
So this holiday season, if lines and crowds at the shops in Georgetown and CityCenter leave you in a sweat, fret not. Spey has you covered with a fabulous gift that is wrapped with our compliments and delivered by hand to the Washington, DC metro area. And if you are out shopping, drop by Hu’s Wear on M Street to see pieces from the Spey collection in person. Cheers to the lustrous holidays!
