Weekend Story: 6th Wedding Anniversary Celebration (a.k.a. Our Palawan Trip)

I didn’t know I’d get it early, and unexpectedly at that!

aren’t they a beauty?

So yeah, I was a very lucky girl yesterday. I got my first pearl jewelry effortlessly it just landed in my lap. And for that, I felt so blessed. I’m actually wearing my 10.0 mm, semi-round white South Sea pearl earrings set in silver today at work. Despite their small size (some can go as big as 18.0 mm), they have very good reflection quality, just like the others of their kind.
