So I have been meaning to publish this entry. Like I mentioned in my Berdori post, I going to share my mini shopping haul after. I know some of you are waiting for it. To be honest, I didn't really buy a lot of items, I only spent a few thousand pesos, but to give you an idea on how much would it cost for a strand of quality freshwater pearls or a pair of south sea earrings from a legitimate pearl store in Greenhills, here we go.
I got this pair of 11mm champagne south sea pearls set in silver for only P6,000. Pearls, being my birthstone, is my favorite go-to earrings at the moment. I can dress up and dress down with it. One more thing that I really love about south sea pearls is that I can wear them practically almost everywhere even on jeepney a commute. Deadma sa pitas hikaw gang ang pearls.
Now here is a pair of earrings, a choker and a bracelet in freshwater pearls of high quality. I got this set for P4,000 only. These are the ones I bought to be gifted to my husband's friend. They look very nice in person. Only my photo doesn't give enough justice to it.
I went back to Berdori the next day and bought another set of quality freshwater pearls at the same price range for another friend in Istanbul. In total, I bought a pair of south sea pearls for me and then 2 pairs of freshwater pearls earrings, 2 freshwater pearl necklaces and 2 freshwater pearl bracelets to be given as gifts.
You know, I previously heard about Berdori in an online thread before and read a few blogs about their store, so I was kind of interested to see them and their collection of south sea pearls and other jewelry. Their price range isn't really that high compared with other stores in Greenhills. I did a few rounds before going straight to their store and found that out for myself.
Do you like pearls? What is your birthstone?
