Pearls with the Giggles

I purchased some lovely dyed, freshwater pearls the other day.  The color and sheen are really good with iridescent shades of green and copper and I felt they would make into something beautiful and elegant for dignified and formal occasions.

Well, I made a little ring with a few of them and discovered my error.  I had mistakenly selected a strand from the 'Giggle' section of the tray.  These silly pearls are bouncing off the walls, won't hold still for a minute and are an out and out embarrassment.

So tell me, how am I to sell a such a ring?  Imagine how it would be if you were sitting down to dinner with the Queen of England and suddenly your pearl ring gets the giggles...how does one explain that away?   

Guess it's back to the drawing board for this bunch.  Sigh...

  7. New Hampshire - the problem is that they giggle and dance every which way instead of staying where they belong in a dignified manner.

    Flip-flopping all over the place.
