It's my Mum's 60th and she has asked for some pretend grey pearly earrings. Obviously I'd like to get real grey pearl earrings but I'm having problems finding any 'nice' ones for a budget which is realistically around £50 (I've already brought other gifts).

Do any wonderful MNers have any good websites to try or know of anywhere I might get some? Please?! I'm getting desperate! grin

do you mean studs or something danglier ?

MaryAnnSingleton Thu 21-Aug-08 12:11:48

this any good ?

Flossish Thu 21-Aug-08 12:14:17

I think I am thinking drops earrings. Not studs. Off to peruse your site!

Flossish Thu 21-Aug-08 12:15:56

Hmm, they all seem to be silver or white gold. Does grey and gold look bad together?

QVC are good for this sort of thing.

These are nice.

I think silver is going to find a link to somewhere that might be helpful...

TsarChasm Thu 21-Aug-08 12:28:47

Or my favourite jewellery site Silver by Mail And they have a sale on atm.

MaryAnnSingleton Thu 21-Aug-08 12:29:03

MaryAnnSingleton Thu 21-Aug-08 12:29:29

Flossish Thu 21-Aug-08 12:29:57

I'm just thinking gold would suit mum better - I can see her more in gold IYSWIM - she wears gold.

Thank you Tsar, lots to think about there!

I'm not convinced you'll find much that has grey pearls with gold - silver would definitely go better. Maybe ask her which she'd prefer.

JackieNo Thu 21-Aug-08 12:44:14

Grey with other bits
Grey and dark blue
Keishi pearls?
I rather like these ones
Very simple - look a bit like blueberriesgrin.

wow! Thank you all so much. I'll ask mum which she would prefer. Lots to think about, but the storm ones if she likes silver are beautiful and simple so may well be the winner!

Flossish Thu 21-Aug-08 14:30:14

Ok so she wants silver. studs. hmmmm! Shows how much I know my mum!! grin
