Pearls & Gemstones 

The current challenge has pearls so I thought I would share some quotes and sayings ...........

 Jewellery takes people's minds off your wrinkles.  ~Sonja Henie

Let us not be too particular.  It is better to have old second-hand diamonds than none at all.  ~Mark Twain

Two older women, who were rivals in a social circle, met at a party.
"My dear," said the first woman "Are those real pearls?"
"They are," replied the second woman.
"Of course the only way I could tell would be for me to bite them." Smiled the first.
The second responded "Yes, but for that you would need real teeth.

Midsummer Night's Dream
Puck: How now, spirit! Whither wander you?
Fairy: Over hill, over dale,
     Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
     Trorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moone's sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours,
In those freckles live their savours:
I must go seek some dew-drops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
William  Shakespeare

Men grow cold,
As girls grow old,
And we all lose our charms in the end.
But square-cut or pear-shaped,
These rocks don't loose their shape.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend.
Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend
The leading line from the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"

I have always felt a gift diamond shines so much better than one you buy for yourself.  ~Mae West

I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage.  They've experienced pain and bought jewellery.  ~Rita Rudner

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels:  it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.  ~Salvador Dalí

There are three things extremely hard:  steel, a diamond, and to know one's self.  ~Benjamin Franklin

The most precious jewels are not made of stone, but of flesh.  ~Robert Ludlum

It might just make you think when your sticking that pearl or gem onto your card or project ;0)
