A pearl necklace will always be classic thanks to fashion mavens like Jackie-O, Coco Chanel, and Michelle Obama. Time and time again I see pearl necklaces adorn the necks of elegant women, but I can never tell the difference between the faux and the real deal.  But once I saw this four strand  J.Crew pearl necklace ($325) in person, I understood the price tag. See why buying real pearls will give you more bang for your buck. Let’s do the Fashion Math:

One wear of this necklace is the same price as your daily coffee. Three months out of the year you are bound to grab this staple – made with freshwater pearls and hand knotted on silk thread. The strands’ varying lengths and sizes make a modern statement, and you can wear this necklace for formal and casual events. Do you want to be known as the grandmother who passed along the cheap pearls? Didn’t think so.
