I was looking for fake pearls for my flower girl and bridesmaids relatively inexpensively. Imagine my surprise last week when I went into Claire’s (an accessory store, mainly geared towards tweens and teens) and found gorgeous 16" pearl necklaces and matching earrings in their clearance "10 items for 10 dollars sale". A week later, I’m still pulling the necklaces out in disbelief that I purchased each strand for $1! The strands have knots in between each bead (just like a real strand of pearls) and the beads are glass pearls so each strand has a nice weight to it. They also are ivory so they don’t look fake like those cheap bleached white pearls.
Just wanted to pass along the word for any bees who wanted (cheap!) pearl accessories for their ‘maids. Hope some of you are able to hit the sale while it is still in progress.. I stopped back into our mall today and there were still about 10 necklaces in that store (i picked up an extra two strands just in case!)
