Knot Between Your Pearls (Not Only Between Your Pearls)
I was given a lovely strand of pearls as a gift and was told that they were Japanese Hanadama Akoya AAA grade pearls designed by Mikimoto. The triple A signifies the highest-quality pearl, “virtually flawless.” I was overwhelmed with such a gift but accepted it shyly.
I have worn these pearls to weddings and some very formal affairs, but I was always concerned about losing them or breaking the strand, so I frequently felt the need to touch them to be certain they hadn’t fallen off my neck. (Silly I know!)
