For the Love of Pearls: Appreciating Nature’s Gifts

The stone of sincerity and purity, pearls have long been associated with classic style, but I think pearls are timeless in any context. Its powers are supposed to enhance peace of mind and concentration, which given my love of pearls, I would say is quite accurate.

Pearls have been worn for centuries and I think they are arguably better than diamonds. Elizabeth Taylor and Rita Hayworth wore pearls by Imperial Pearl from Rhode Island, and Miss Universe is crowned each year with a crown of pearls by MIKIMOTO of Japan. The pearls on the crown are so precious and valuable that a security detail is required wherever it’s worn. The crown is valued at approximately $250,000.

Pearls are stylish for every occasion, from casual to formal. It’s also my personal opinion that pearls are ideal to complete bridal looks: whether it be with statement earrings or a beautiful necklace, pearls are the best choice for a bride on her special day.

Beyond the classic choice of pearls (I’ve included a chart with pearl sizes below). I think that pearls can also be used in more modern pieces, such as this piece by Olga van Doorn from The Netherlands, where a double ring holds up a mother of pearl oyester with a pearl, I love that piece! Pearls have endless size and color combinations, and to me, they are more versatile and beautiful than diamonds.
