Pearls & Politics

By Nicole Wilkinson

Why is it when I think of pearls and first ladies I immediately think of Barbara Bush? Political stylists have had a way of dressing political figure heads and spouses with dignity, grace, elegance and conservatism. This style is easily executed with a beautiful strand of pearls, or in Barbara's case, three strands. According to Peter Bazar of Imperial, Rhode Island, "If a woman is going to be taken seriously, she needs a strand of pearls...The more successful she is, the bigger the pearls."
Pearls are always in style and never out of season. Serving as a classic staple for the woman's wardrobe no matter what decade, pearls make a striking impact. Sarah Palin wore South Sea pearls for her convention night speech, "Michelle Obama's Jackie O-style strand, Cindy McCain's four-strand akoya, or Nancy Pelosi's multicolor South Seas, and all are the foundation of a well-dressed woman's jewelry wardrobe" according to Modern Jeweler. "That's the great thing about pearls, say Avi Raz of A&Z Pearls, Los Angeles. They cross party lines."
