Pearls seem to be the fashion accessory of choice for prominent females in politics.
- Michelle Obama wore South Sea pearls at the Democratic National Convention.
- Mrs. Bush sported pearl stud earrings at the Republican Convention.
- Governor Palin took to the podium wearing golden South Sea pearls at the same event.
- Mrs. McCain modeled a four-stranded pearl necklace that seemed to be made of large akoya pearls.
To boot, the world’s largest online pearl company, PearlParadise.com, says they’ve seen sales increase over the past few months as the Presidential Election takes center stage in the media.
