A treasured gem
Pearls have been worn in jewelry since Ancient Greece. They have always been one of the most treasured gems, mainly for their rarity. Pearls symbolised in many ancient cultures, the moon, the purity, generosity and femininity. Ancient Greeks, for example, once believed pearls were the hardened tears from Aphrodite, the goddess of love. The Ancient Chinese believed pearls would protect the wearer from dragons and fire. But leaving aside all these beautiful symbolisms, these white gems are incredibly flattering, they lighten up any look and go well with all styles. Pearls simply are the perfect gems from the depths of seas and lakes, and they are never really out of fashion. And right now, they’re trendier than ever! Let’s dive into this trend, shall we?

Our pearl earrings are something no ear should go without.
How to wear pearl jewelry
How to style pearls in a way that feels chic and fresh? When you think of pearls, you might think of a classic style, but we’re actually loving pearls for their versatility style-wise. What else pairs so perfectly with everything, from jeans to maxi dresses? You can wear pearls with romantic floral prints, dressed up for work with a shiny satin blouse and a ponytail or as a nice accent to your casual look with jeans. Pearls simply fit every look! One of the most popular takes on the pearl necklace is a delicate seed pearl necklace. For an elevated and feminine spin, start with your favorite version and pair it with one of our delicate chain necklaces like a rope or curb style. Then mix in an array of gold earrings — we love the look of gold hoops with dangling pearls accompanied by more sculptural gold hoops. If you don’t have multiple piercings, you can achieve this layered statement look by adding some elegant ear cuffs. Are you in a creative mood? While pearls are beautiful on their own, we love mixing them with other pieces, such as vibrant gemstones, and a mix of metals. Think of the gem as the ultimate neutral that complements all other jewelry, from diamonds to colorful stones. Choose one of the basic hoops and add a freshwater pearl dangle. Classic pearls with a pop of gold look very luxurious, but good news for the silver lovers out there, all our items are available in silver too so you can shine in silver or gold - no matter the metal.
