Anyone who knows me will attest to my love of pearls. Blame it on being raised in the South but I can’t get enough of them. I have a few strands ranging in lengths, colors and designs but nowhere in my jewelry box do I see an avant garde pearl necklace. I discovered Auden Jewelry this evening after seeing Serena van der Woodsen wearing a double stranded opera length necklace on the ‘All the Pretty Sources’ episode of Gossip Girl. I rushed over to the brand’s website and and started drooling over all the jewelry on the site, particularly the Madison Pin Pearl Necklace, a triple strand necklace with two pins anchoring each side and a velvet ribbon fastening the necklace. This piece retails for $558 but a worth investment.
