Pearls have been reinventing themselves in the fashion accessory world. I’ve been fascinated with the way fashionistas think about pearls for quite a while now. And, with so many celebrities and reality TV stars donning the precious gems, I have to ask myself, “Do bad girls wear pearls?”
Personally, I’ve always had a problem with the term “good girl.” When I was coming up in the 70s, it meant “be seen and not heard.” Good girls were respectful and respectable. But, when you listen to the term, it gives the impression that these women should be quietly placed on a shelf to be adorned… as mindless creatures.
Where Do Bad Girls Wear Pearls?
These days, you see women wearing pearls on TV, on the Internet, in public places, and in fashion shows. You’ll see them worn casually in the grocery store. Women wear them at networking events and power meetings with clients. They can even be worn by bad girls on those daring nights out on the town.
Pearl jewelry comes in so many different styles nowadays. Because of this, some say these little gems can transform bad girls into good girls. Well, when you look at Mama Fratelli (Goonies), you’d have to disagree. She’s proof that bad girls wear pearls too!
Yes, Bad Girls Wear Pearls
One of my friends here in Las Vegas is always getting compliments from people. They say she’s so put together. However, between balancing a marriage, being a mom, having a career and keeping her home intact, she really doesn’t feel the same way. She constantly whispers, “They don’t know. It’s the pearls.” In other words, good girls wear pearls.
But, this same friend really knows how to let loose on a Saturday night. She’ll slap on her tiny black dress and stilettos to hit the hippest night club in town with the girls in a heartbeat. I love watching her transform into a bad girl, with her short-cut dress and cleavage showing.
Even as a nighttime woo-hoo girl, she strolls into the club with multiple strands of pearls on her neck, stackable pearl bracelets, large dangling pearl earrings and many, many oversized pearl rings on her hand. She even wears pearls to seduce her handsome husband on those oh so sexy nights (not her pictured below). Yes, bad girls wear pearls too!
My friend tells me that pearls can be worn by anyone, at any time. It doesn’t matter what style you have, what mood you’re in or how casual or formal the affair, pearl jewelry makes the perfect accessory pieces to make your outfit shine. By the looks of things, pearls can also transform good girls into bad girls.

Pearl Jewelry with Garnet
Garnet is the January birthstone. It’s also the symbolic gem of the 2nd wedding anniversary. This red gem has historical popularity. A grave was discovered that dates all the way back to 3000 B.C. There, in the grave, was a young man wearing a necklace made of garnets. That’s over 5,000 years ago! That just goes to show just how durable and hard garnet gemstones are to this day.
