Have you endlessly strived to be the teacher’s pet, or the boss’s or your mother’s? This apple necklace, thrown over an autumnal-hued sweater dress, guarantees you’ll be the apple of everyone’s eye.
The conical-shaped Pink Pearl variety certainly caught jewelry designer Janet Mavec’s eyes. She made the Big Apple Necklace a true heirloom by casting it in gold-plated brass (but, trust us, you’ll want this one custom made in gold). The Pink Pearl apple, first bred in 1945, ripens in late August and hangs like giant pearls from Malus pumila (in common parlance: the apple tree). At this point, we may have used up our quota of puns, but we can’t stop. The apple is so darn ripe for the picking. While you could certainly go the path of being a smart cookie, we recommend the orchard-to-table healthy approach of being a wise apple.
You'll want to check out our blog post where our dear apples from the orchard appear in October's Martha Stewart Living. We give you a behind-the-scenes peek. See the inspiration behind our apple pendant necklace.
