Perfectly Poised Pearl Necklace
The silver-tone pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver chain. The pendant is etched with the word, "poised" and is coupled with a freshwater pearl. The necklace is packaged in a special Hope Design Ltd. Perfectly Poised card. This makes a great gift for the special military spouses in your life.
Freshwater pearls take between 1 to 6 years to form, whereas saltwater pearls may take between 5 to 20 years. This is significant because this timeline parallels the life-cycle of many Army spouses. When Army spouses are ‘fresh’ (in the first 1 to 6 years), they handle these irritants with curiosity and adventure. They hold down the home while their soldiers are away at their first training exercise - it is exciting! After making pearls for 5 to 20 years, calling veteran Army spouses salty wouldn’t go well, so they are reverently called ‘seasoned’. Seasoned spouses take a career of unpredictable moves, countless separations, and anxiety-inducing unknowns and turn them into something beautiful.
This piece will be hand-crafted to order by a military spouse at Hope Design Ltd.Ⓡ.
