How to do pearls with a twist

The new pearl collection from Comme des Garcons has arrived at London’s uber-stylish Dover Street Market – check out the collection on I’m loving the heart pendant made from a cluster of magnificent, luminous pearls. Very nice indeed.

The collection, according to Vogue, includes necklaces fashioned from juicy, handpicked natural Pacific Ocean pearls as well as top-notch cultured Japanese pearls, so no wonder the least expensive of the lot will set you back a cool £1,700. Yikes, that hurts.

Rok Chix Charcoal Pearl and Silver Barbs NecklaceIf you’re short of the odd £1,700 too, the Rok Chix Charcoal Pearl and Silver Barbs Necklace is just (if not more, even if I say so myself) edgy. Okay, it doesn’t have the highly expensive pearls that the CdG pieces are made from (it’s made from freshwater pearls and handmade silver barbs, actually). But there again it will  only make your bank balance £45 lighter, which, in these cash-strapped times, sounds a bit more like it to me.
