BY HELEN DIXON Family News Editor Love and marriage never seem to go out of style, and neither do pearls. As symbols of- love, Innocence and purity, pearls have always been the preferred bridal jewelry of young women of taste and elegance. The pearls you wear on your wedding day will probably be the basis for additions to your jewelry wardrobe for the rest of your life. They never go out of style, and their luster is only improved with wearing. Many brides during the turbulent sixties turned away from the traditional wedding customs. Some married in meadows, parks, or other unlikely locations, wearing informal clothes. But in the seventies the pendulum has swung back, and it's evident from the gowns brides are choosing, that gimmicky looks are out and restraint is in. Along with dress styles, the always fashionable pearl necklace reflects this civilized and feminine trend. The beauty of the oyster- born jewel has been recognized since the first man climbed out of his cave and stepped into the water for shellfish. History records that pearls were so prized by men that at times they were forbidden to women! In ancient India the war god Vishnu was always pictured wearing a string of pearls into battle to ward off death and evil. Persian kings wore pearls as a symbol of sovereignty. Alexander the Great who introduced pearls into Europe, made them the fashion for wealthy and titled young men who wore them in their ears and on their clothes. Julius Caesar was fond of pearls, and Henry VIII wore, a fortune in pearl necklaces from neck to waist. When choosing pearls, whether natural or cultured, and to make sure your choice is a quality gem, there are several characteristics which indicate their value.Size, shape, color , luster and surface smoothness, all determine value. Large pearls are rare, and therefore more expensive. Perfectly round pearls are PTA Notes BOWIE The sixth grade will sing the rock cantata "The Creation'' at the 7:30 p.m. Thursday meeting of the Bowie Elementary School PTA in the school cafeteria.

The perfectly round are the most expensive, then semi-round, and finally baroque. Colors of pearls are almost limitless, but the main quality which gives pearls their great beauty is luster. Unlike shine, which is a surface quality, the luster of the pearl is actually a glow from within. Because of their structure, which reflects as well as refracts light, only real pearls—both cultured and natural—have luster. Surface smoothness is also a factor in determining value. Perfectly smooth pearls are extremely rare, and almost all real pearls will have some slight indentations in their surfaces, and some even have tiny spots of discoloration. Today's bride has many alternatives when choosing her pearls for that day of days. Strands may be purchased in almost any length, depending on how you want to accentuate the neckline of your bridal gown. Perhaps it's because men like to lavish beautiful thing on the women they love that pearls have been transformed into a woman's jewel. It's been observed that diamonds are a girl's best friend, and that gentlemen prefer blonds, but it has also been observed that blonds in diamonds do not light fires in gentlemen the way girls in pearls do!
