Pearls were perhaps previously seen as something to be worn on very formal occasions. The icon images of pearl wearers – from Anne Boleyn to Jackie Kennedy – often saw them in very formal wear with their pearl jewellery on display.
Today, pearl jewellery is much more adaptable. Fashions change but pearls do to – there is a wide variety of styles, colours and prices so pearls are worn at almost every opportunity. Let’s look at when and where to show off your pearls.
Of course, for formal events pearls are a must to compliment the evening gown. It’s a tradition that thankfully continues today. Pearl necklaces are ideal either a single length or several lengths together. Buying quality grade pearl necklaces is very affordable today and they compliment the most stunning of dresses. Whether selecting traditional white or cream, to subtle pink pearls or multicoloured pearl necklaces, there will be something to add extra glamour to any evening event. Additionally, pearl earrings will add a further touch of sophistication.
Increasingly pearls are worn as part of business dress – again because of their ability to compliment almost any wardrobe. Whether you are dressing for a formal business meeting or go to work in a contemporary colour-rich clothes, pearl jewellery offers the ideal finishing touch. Traditional coloured pearls are great with vibrant colours as well as the traditional black dresses or dress suits, so a little pearl jewellery goes a long way
The same is true when casual wear is the order of the day. Forget twinset and pearls, think jeans, T-shirt and pearls. There are funky pearls in pink, grey and multicolour strands, and even ‘traditional’ gold and pearl earrings make a great addition to a simple trousers and jumper look. Paring pearl pendants with a white or cream summer dress finished with bold coloured accessories is a great idea.
And for the most important day of your life, pearls are a must. Pearls and weddings go together like love and marriage – it’s a tradition that’s more alive today than ever. Classic wedding dress or modern style, there’s a wide range of pearls to suit – and a choice of everything from pearl earrings to necklaces, bracelets to pearl pendants to mix and match. A quality item of pearl jewellery will be a lasting memory of a great day – whether for the bridge, proud mum or bridegroom.
We may be biased, but others will tell you the same: from formal to fun, blushing brides to best boss, it’s got to be pearls to go with every look.
