Pearl jewelry and pearl strands have been in vogue since their discovery by the pre-modernized civilizations. Pearls have always been associated with love, purity and wisdom. It is a modern tradition that a Bride wears pearls on her wedding day to represent all of the aforementioned virtues. Pearls are being sewn on wedding gowns or worn as earrings or necklaces during the ceremony. Pearls add a touch of class to any outfit and will never fade out of fashion. Pearls have been the inspiration for artists, poets and designers for centuries. Cartier, a world renowned name in the jewelry industry, made his mark by creating a large double strand pearl necklace in his New York studio in the early 1900s. Pearls are a classic addition to any jewelry box and can be passed on from generation to generation. It is not uncommon for a bride to wear her grandmother's strand of pearls on her wedding day. Hey, it's something old, right?
Traditionally, white pearls are highlighted in the fashion
New York Yankee Derek Jeter recently became a member of the 3000 hit club in July of 2011. Jeter is thefirst Yankee to ever reach this milestone. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Movado created a watch that honors Jeter and his great accomplishment. The watch is simple and stunning as a part of the Movado Bold line. Sales of the watch benefit Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation - an organization that was created by Jeter to help teens and children avoid drugs and alcohol.
Other Movado watches have been created to honor the athlete in previous years. Many hold the easily recognizable Yankee pinstripes on the face. This watch was designed to be unlike any other. Only 300 watches have been created for a retail price of $550

Day's offers a variety of Figaro and Inox chains for men, but nothing like what has been noticed on some male celebrities recently. For example, take a look at some of the images published with JCK's article on July 11:
