Nancy Pelosi’s Tahitian Pearls

nancy pelosiNo matter what your politics, you have to admit that Nanci Pelosi looks fabulous! She looks modern, classy, and powerful.

She’s got it right..classic, fitted feminine suits (instead of those awful boxy masculine types) made from luxurious fabrics in rich colors.

But, it’s her power pearls that are really all the talk!

Check out her large-sized South Seas and Tahitian pearls, especially the gray and cream strand of marble sized pearls she’s been sporting with dark suits and tweeds.

Although the real thing can set you back at least $20,000 or more dollars, these definitely make the statement, I am woman. I am powerful!

These pearls are great  because, while they basically set a conservative tone like all pearls do (and that’s what we want in business), there is a twist. The unusual color is modern and fresh and sends the message that Nancy’s ideas are that way too. The large size sends the message “elegant authority”.

Imagine Nancy in a string of tiny cream pearls or a teeny thin gold chain with a delicate teardrop diamond hanging down. She just wouldn’t have the same presence or authority. She would seem weak and outdated.

So lesson here is:  Women in positions of power, be aware of the message your jewelry sends. You don’t need much, just a couple of statement pieces that let you enjoy your femininity but show that you mean business.

  3. She looks so great in those pearls. Pearls are my favorite jewelry. I just bought a necklace just like hers from and i adore it. So classy and elegant!

    sometimes I wanna be a lion but I’m just a cat—

  5. Your site is very very cool !! I love it Respect !

  6. Well, we seem to have strayed from the pearls themselves to her brain, her money etc. But back to the pearls.

    When you see the large multi-colored strands, often they are a mix of fresh water and south sea pearls. They are going to be off-rounds to very irregular (baroque). While some of the strands are going to be expensive ($10K and up), a lot of them are going to be in a price range that most hard working people can afford and enjoy. While Nancy P most likely has the real thing, you never know if she mixes in one of the better fashion products. She’ll never tell!
    If you want to know more about what’s going on in pearls, just ask me.Alan

  7. The Pelosis are independently wealthly.

    Even at a Congressperson’s salary, one can afford to have a few top-notch wardrobe items to set a tone for personal fashion. It is a lesson that all of us can learn to our benefit.

    As for Mrs. Pelosi’s brain, I might disagree with a lot of her conclusions but she has intellignece, particularly in those sectors were mine is weak.

  8. Pelosi might wear pearls but what she really needs is a brain to match.
    how can she afford such expensive pearls
    I didn’t know speakers of the house made that kind of salary. lol


  9. Nancy’s pearls are fabulous and expensive. There are some good quality fashion products of simulated pearls, the best being made from mother-of-pearl with a liquid pearl emulsion finish to give it the $100,000 look. These will cost from $120 to $600 depending on size and available in tone of white, gray and black. I’m not sure if yellows are available in this product line.

    The other great value are freash water cultured pearls. You can get natural colors in a host of shapes and sizes. Many fine pearls are available for $300 to $500 and some other fine strands of large and fancy shapes may go up to $2500, but typically not more than that. Most importantly, they are real and you can find colors that will suit everyone’s skin tones.

  10. Nancy Pelosi Responsible For A Huge Spike In Pearl Jewelry!

    Maybe it’s just because she is the first female speaker of the house…who knows.. ..but Nancy Pelosi’s wardrobe has been getting a ton of attention of late with most of the discussion revolving around her signature strand of South Sea…
