For all the talk of pearls being timeless, many of us still catch ourselves shying away from pearl accessories for fear of coming off rather...shall we say, matronly. But timeless they really are, and to prove our point here are 4 up-to-date and stylish ways to wear pearls.
Sparkles and pearls
Let your pearls shine brighter in the company of some gemstones or crystals. They can complement pearls with color, like the lovely green crystal accents in these earrings, or even jazz it up with a dazzling bit of oomph like wiath this statement necklace.
More than white
When we think of pearls we tend to think of shades of white. Lovely as white is, a little variety never hurt anyone. The rich earthy tones in this necklace, for example, is a great way to add a little warmth to your outfit.
These two statement earrings on the left prove that less is more. Their clean silhoutte and length bring the drama while letting the large pearls take the spotlight. For a more subtle approach, the studs on the right are perfectly understated, with just a hint of an edgy twist.
All said and done, there's still something to be said about the good ol' rope of pearls. Try mixing up this classic by layering different sizes of pearls in different lengths. This creates depth and texture and is an easy way to upgrade your look with a dose of contemporary glamour.
Are we clutching at our pearls yet? There's no reason to wait... they'd be the perfect finishing touch to your killer style, so go on ahead and rock those pearls!
