6 PEARLS OF WISDOM - The Story Behind White Purls


The pearl is my favorite jewel.  It is part of the name White Purls - a play on words - White Purls for the techniques I employ in my hat-making... Hand-knitting stitches... The reverse knit stitch... The first half of my passion.

Simultaneously (I love Puns!), White Purls also stands for White Pearls, the pearl necklace... The perennial expression of the pillbox hat... The other half of my passion... Finally, the love I have for everything vintage and the years gone by.

Today's blog post is dedicated to every woman.  We all need pearls in our lives.  Splurge!  Wield the essence of your femininity through the feel of delicate pearls.  Reach for the goddess within you!  Below is a collection of 6 Pearl related quotes to think about while looking at the Royal Darla Pillbox hat.  You're a Queen!

Pillbox hat by the Window


Pearl, the precious prize of a Queen, 
Chastely set in cherished gold, 
In all the East none equalling,   
No peer to her could I behold. 
So round, so rare, a radiant thing, 
So smooth she was, so small of mold, 
Wherever I judged gems glimmering   
I set her apart, her price untold...

-Excerpt from the Poem "Pearl" 
by Anonymous, 
An English Poem of the 14th Century

Pillbox Hat in the Salon

Shades of Wine,  Mustard, and Oregano interlace the Fall fashion scene this year.
Pair your Autumn looks with the pearled Darla pillbox hat in Anglaise White.  
It is elegant and unique, dainty yet robust, classical yet modern. Perfect juxtaposition for now and forever!

“The rarest things in the world, next to a spirit of discernment, are diamonds and pearls.”

-Jean de la Bruyere
