Pearls, Mother Nature’s gift to us girls, can complement any look or style. While some ladies may equate a string of pearls with the likes of June Cleaver and Donna Reed, pearls have been making waves as a hip and trendy piece that any modern day woman can wear.
We recommend taking the following factors into account when purchasing these beauties:
1) Pearl Personality. In other words, make sure what you buy matches your disposition. If you’re loud and outgoing try something daring like pistachio-colored or blue baroque pearls. If you’re shy and a little quiet, maybe sport a single white one as a ring.
2) Pearl Portion. When purchasing a pearl necklace, the longer, the better. While our moms may go for shorter, choker-type necklaces, a string of pearls can be long and beautiful. The look screams conservative-chic.
3) Pearl Proficiency. Make sure you know your stuff. When you shop for pearls, the variety of shape, size and color are bound to make you dizzy. Before you go shopping, get some education under your belt. Pearls come in shapes such as round, drop, pear, egg and button, and colors range from white and cream to yellow and rose.
Ladies should remember that pearls are fun and fantastic jewelry pieces. And stay tuned for an updated post that will dig deep into pearl education 101!
