It came to a huge surprise that my boyfriend bought me a two strand pearl necklace. He even researched on the authentication of a genuine pearl and everything! I’ve been hinting that I wanted something with pearls just because I’m so jewelry-less nowadays. Plus I like to brand myself as a classic look and pearls are the obvious choice of accessory.
His Christmas present to me is so much more than just a material blessing. It symbolizes so many emotions and personality traits that are found within me. The genuine pearl may look perfect from far away, but each is unique in size and shape. What makes a pearl perfect is the imperfections within it. And I love it. He bought this for me because he knows I like black tie parties and special events, and that he wants me to wear something special. He bought this for me because he knows I’m in love with the 1950’s fashion and all things that are classic. He bought this for me because he knows me. Even more than I know about myself. I know that 40, 50 years down the line, I will be able to wear this necklace again. And I am so thankful to have this man who found a single gift that sums me up entirely.
I can’t wait to wear this on unforgettable nights. I am so thankful for all of my loved ones who has genuinely loved me for me. Merry Christmas everyone!
