help me get some pearls

My wife has been dropping hints (like anvils on my toes) that she would like a string of pearls for her birthday, and I'd like to oblige. I know nothing about buying pearls. I can probably afford it, but don't want to break the bank.

I'm in Austin TX. I'd appreciate recommendations for local jewelers, or online sources if that's a reasonable alternative, and some idea of how much is a reasonable amount to spend on a decent-quality strand.
