Hi Ladies. I saw a gorgeous strand of 35" Chanel pearls with two CC logo's this past weekend in a boutique. The price was $725 plus tax. I wanted to buy them but the hardware was gold, which is not my style. I checked eBay when I got home and found the same with silver hardware but they were listing for $900-over $1000. I posted what I was looking for in "Chanel Shopping" and within an hour, I had my pearls ordered. Did I mention how much I love this web site???? You guys are great. It may be shallow, but I'm a happy girl today!
