Pearls are no longer just for brides or for those born in June. In fact, anyone can wear pearls, regardless of their personal style preferences. Pearl jewelry today doesn't have to look like your grandmother's pearls, though it certainly can if you prefer a classic strand.
What Makes Pearls Special?
Pearls are a very rare and quite unique gemstone, as they're the only gem material formed from the sea and found within a living creature, a shelled mollusk. Unlike other gems that need to be cut or polished before use, pearls require no special cutting or polishing to maximize their enchanting beauty. Pearls are glistening ornaments that are stunning in the way they naturally form.
This unique gem is known to symbolize the beauty that comes with earned wisdom and resilience. The versatility of pearls empowers women to create their own style statements. A symbol of elegance and great taste, pearls have been a staple piece for some of the most powerful and iconic women throughout history, including royals like Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton, actresses like Audrey Hepburn, and leaders like Jackie Kennedy, who once famously said, “pearls are always appropriate!”. Pearls have also been celebrated in some iconic and highly-recognizable pieces of art, including Vermeer's "Girl With a Pearl Earring".
Our Pearl Recommendations
Our Trillion Pearl Necklace is the perfect entry point for anyone who's never purchased pearl jewelry before. It's an easy necklace to wear with nearly everything - a white blouse, a sleek dress, a t-shirt. One lustrous freshwater pearl topped with a trillion-cut emerald makes for a sophisticated pendant suspended from an 18" chain.
Our Spikey Pearl Hoop Earrings are available with either white diamonds or black diamonds. Choose one style or the other depending on your mood or wear them all together for a complete ear party. A playful spin on the classic hoop silhouette, these 18K gold earrings feature 14 freshwater pearls in total, adding dimension and interest to the design. The diamonds between the pearls make for a sparkling finish.
Our Princess Pearl Earrings are literally the most perfect earring for everyday styling. With an elegant, French wire silhouette, these earrings feature lustrous freshwater pearls paired with your choice of princess-cut gem: emerald, sapphire, or diamond. They're just as appropriate for a bride on her big day as they are for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Halleh's Pearl Styling Tips
Halleh loves dressing up t-shirts and jeans by adding some pearls for a casual-chic and effortless presentation. She loves how the Princess Pearl Earrings elevate the simple style of a plain tee and denim.
While the Trillion Pearl Necklace is gorgeous on its own, it can also be styled with other necklaces for a more fashion forward feel. Layering our Trillion Pearl Necklace with our Gemini or Cancer Zodiac Large Link Necklace is the perfect way to celebrate a June birthday.
And who says classic pearls can’t have an "edge"? The Spikey Pearl Hoop Earrings we mentioned above create a sleek and untraditional pearl appearance. These earrings transition perfectly from day to night, perfect with leather or tailored denim.
