Pearly Touch

In a season of uncluttered elegance, pearls are smarter than ever. Big and beautiful are bubble pearls that rest light as air within the frame of a shallow scoop neckline in the new 20-inch "intermission" length. For real drama pearls cast their cultured like glow in chokers, pins, earrings and bibs... the newest "fill-in," a four-strand bib of uniform- size pearls that look like genuine matched beauties.

Both penny-wise and fashion rich is a collection of real cultured pearls making their debut this season. In delicate golden settings befitting their authenticity, they glow in high chokers, wreath pins, narrow bangles, link bracelets and charmingly fashioned earrings. From: Long Beach Independent, 1955
