San Diego, CA, February 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With changes in the White House as well as the rest of the country, pearls are once again going to be associated with the younger generation of Americans. Already National Congress of Black Women, Bridgeton area chapter, joined other women across the nation as they saluted the new first lady by wearing pearls on inauguration day.
Michelle Obama sports her pearls against a backdrop of chic modern elegance that has prompted the Washington Post to refer to her as “Camelot with a tan”.
The reference dates back to the halcyon Kennedy years, when Jackie’s trademark look took the country by storm. After her husband’s death, Jackie referred to the era of his presidency as “Camelot”, stating there would never be another.
Camelot is back in more ways than one, as the stylish new First Lady proved with the stunning pearl strands she wore during most of the campaigns and inauguration. As she develops her own unique sense of style, Michelle matches stunning jewelry pieces with straight off the rack outfits to present an appealing image every American woman can identify with.
Her noted preference for pins either combined with pearl necklaces or alone opens up doors to a variety of new, affordable looks in the jewelry market. C. D. Plus, Inc.’s Spokeswoman from www.CathayGems.com pointed to increased sales from their brooch selections as signs of a trend.
“The fact that the pearl brooches are becoming more popular than ever is a obvious sign that people are paying attention to Ms Obama and her clear fashion sense,” Lan Toma said. “She shows that you don’t have to wear expensive designer stuff to look good. CathayGems works on the same principle; we have hundreds of jewelry pieces that can give you that high class look without a extravagant price tag.”
