It’s a fact that diamonds are a girl’s best friend (and anyone who says otherwise must be from another planet!), but if we talk about pearls is a totally different story.
Pearls or “tears of the sea” as they’re nostalgically called, are classic, timeless, and have an amazing capacity for reinvention. So today I will talk a little bit about pearls in jewelry.
We all have a pearl necklace we inherited from our grandmother or simply received a gift. And if not, calm down; nowadays we have many contemporary options for any look and any budget.
The pearl necklace is classic and can be worn by women of all ages, but we must know how to wear it. In its most classical and minimalist version and pearl being a delicate and timid stone, it must remain in its comfort zone. Therefore, the dress you wear with the necklace should be delicate and timid as well. Black pants and white shirt (Coco Chanel style) is another good choice, but we can also use our pearls with jeans and a shirt, flannel shirt or a simple one color blouse.
As I mentioned earlier, pearls are timeless. However, timelessness doesn’t mean rigidity, and pearls have managed to renew their aesthetic and integrate into pieces as controversial as the ear cuffs. The star stone of all time is modernized to conquer the trendsetters and, why not? The ones who like modern and different styles. We no longer see only pearl necklaces, earrings, and rings, but also handbags, sunglasses and even shoes.
The necklaces with several rows as those of Chanel, the XXL pearls embedded in the chokers and necklaces from LANVIN, and pearls in the clutches of D&G show us that pearls can be reinvented in an extremely creative way without losing their essence. And certainly among such a variety of proposals it’s almost impossible to refuse the entry of pearls in our jewelry, or rather; our closet.
And if we must admit something, is that Jackie Kennedy was absolutely right when she said “Pearls are always appropriate”.
