SHOW & TELL #15 Pearl Collar



Well here it is Friday again. At my house that means Show and Tell with Kelli!!!! I really look forward to Friday and seeing and reading about all the wonderful items and things that my fellow blogland friends show. If you haven't yet joined in the fun I encourage you to do so. It is a real blessing. So jump on over to Kelli's, at There Is No Place Like Homeand, and read all about it. Select something to Show and Tell and then sign up on Mr. Linky and share it with all of us.


I am once again showing one of my keepsakes from my teenage years in the 50's!!! This is a pearl (not real of course) collar. If you enlarge the picture you can see it also is adorned with rhinestones. Mine has yellowed over the 50 years I've had it but you can tell how lovely it was.

These were worn with a short sleeve sweater or a sweater set. I looked for a picture with me wearing it but couldn't find one. That surprises me because I wore it a LOT. We also didn't take a lot of pictures in those days.

Do any of you remember these? Do any of you still have one? I'd love to see yours.

Hope you enjoyed my Show and Tell...........Now I'm off to visit and see all of yours!!!

Have a wonderful and blessed day in the Lord.

Wow, it looks like an Indian beaded necklace or one of the crocheted collars that I wore in high school. I've never seen one of these, but I bet you were beautiful wearing it. It's awesome!

Susan I remember that my mom had one! Very neat!! I have been slightly busy and did not get a show and tell in, but still fun to sit in the class and see others treasure!!

Oh Susan, that's beautiful!! I remember those, but I didn't have a pearl one. I think the aging of your pearls gives it such a glow.

diana said...

Hi Susan,

I have never seen anything like that. It is very pretty. I wish you could have found a picture of you wearing it.

Lori said...

That is a very pretty collar.

I haven't seen one of these either.

Sara said...

It's beautiful. I do remember them, but I was just a young kid in the 50's and I never got to own or wear a lovely pearl collar like that. Great memories for you, though.

Momma Roar said...

Very beautiful! I think I've seen one before but I can't remember where...

Barbara H. said...

I don't remember them, but it is lovely!

lila said...

What a beautiful "pearl" collar! I remember all those sweater sets...and sometimes see them again on Perry Mason TV shows which Mr. Pear loves to watch...(I giggle at the pointy bras! Those were the days!)

Suzy said...

Susan~
I do remember those, but haven't thought about it in years!...very pretty!!

Lynne said...

I remember my mother having one of those. Very pretty Susan.

ellen b said...

Oh that is a lovely collar and it would really shnaze up a sweater and outfit for sure...It would be fun to see a picture of you wearing it back in the 50's! Blessings...

I have something similar to that one that belong to my mother. I think they are fabulous.

I was thinking I had one of those back then, but surely I would have kept it! My mother crocheted a seed pearl belt for me, and I do still have it! Hmmm, that's another show and tell!

It's beautiful!

Lana G! said...

Beautiful. I sure it was fun to wear!

Becky said...

Susan I have never seen anything like that. I had a collar that I would wear like a necklace but it was made of lace and crochet and fit right on the dress as if it were made for it. But I have never seen a pearl necklace that looks like a collar. That is really pretty.

Susan said...

Susan,

That is so beautiful. What a treasure. I've never seen anything like this and think it should be "brought back"...how classy looking.

:-) Susan

jar said...

What a beautiful collar. You must have felt like a princess wearing it.

PEA said...

Omigosh, Susan, I had forgotten about those pearl collars...now I remember my mom having one!! That is so fabulous that you still have yours, it's just gorgeous!! xox

Stephanie said...

I don't think I've seen a pearl collar, though I do remember the lace collars and crocheted collars and had one I used to wear over a green dress, as I remember.

That is so pretty1

Susie said...

I've never heard of these before, but your's is very pretty. I did not save much from my childhood, and I do not save much these days. You are so good about that.

MightyMom said...

Now see, I was thinking what a lovely golden color it is!

Sonya said...

This is lovely! I can't believe you've had it for 50 years! What a wonderful keepsake!

Nadine said...

I have not seen one before, but it sure looks nice. I bet it looked really pretty on you.

Cathrine said...

Lyndy said...

How loveley. I remember my mom having those and wearing them. How wonderful that you have kept it all these years.

Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, Lyndy

Michelle-ozark crafter said...

That is just stunning Susan. What a lovely thing and I am glad you kept it all these years!

Myrna said...

I remember those1 I had a smaller version, but don't know what happened to it. I think it is great that you kept things like thie and that beautiful little "prom purse" you showed. Wonderful treasures.

I'm not showing this week. Actually, I'm having difficulty just visiting these days. Too many irl concerns taking my energies. I will get back in the groove before long!

Charree said...

Susan...How neat is that. I absolutely love the style of clothes and jewelry from the 40's and 50's. In fact, if I could get away with it, I would wear all of the "flowy" dresses. How wonderful that you kept this piece of jewelry. Even though it may have yellowed a bit, it is still beautiful.

Ruth said...

It IS pretty!! What a neat piece of jewelry.

Anita said...

Hi Susan,

I am a bit late to admire your last show & tell. Oh, you seem still have many of those old treasures from your teenage years, havn't you? What a nice keepsake!

By the way, I sent you an e-mail on Friday, did you get it?

Best wishes and have a wonderful week-end! We are just having breakfast in the sun!

Anita

Barbara said...

You did keep that a long time. It is pretty.

Kelly said...

Susan~
The last few times I have written comments I wasn't able to post (due to my own technical issues!). I just wanted you to know that I have been praying for you and your entire family... especially your son and grandson as they adjust to the absence of your precious granddaughter. I know your heart aches and I am so, so sorry.

I will keep you all in my prayers.

Charity Grace said...

So pretty...

Thank you for your comment on my Show and Tell post as well.
