Isn’t it funny how girls seem to drape pearls all over themselves, while men seem to shy away from Pearls. But why is that? Is it because there isn’t enough/any pearl jewellery available for men?
Pearls symbolise wisdom and wealth, therefore it is hardly surprising that many Kings, Emperors and Maharajas in history favored them above other stones, choosing in some cases to wear as many as possible!
The Maharaja on the left was obviously an avid fan of pearls as we can see pearl necklaces , pearl pins and pearl encrusted robes adorning him. A huge display of his wealth and power.
Julius Caesar’s love of pearls is said to have been a contributing factor to his invasion of England in 55BC. Scottish pearls were well known to the Romans as some of the finest available, alongside Oriental pearls from the Persian Gulf and Ceylon.
Now boys, we are not suggesting that you walk around wearing several pearl necklaces and pearl bracelets, but how about wearing this simple necklace made with black leather and a deep metallic coloured Tahitian Pearl.
Born in Black lipped oysters Tahitian Pearls come in a wide variety of colours, naturally dark they range from grey to black and peacock green to aubergine. However, you can sometimes find very light coloured Tahitian Pearls that range from white with grey overtones to yellow and pink.
These elegant Tahitian Pearl cufflinks are the perfect stylish accessory for your cuff. With blue, green, purple and grey hues the cufflinks will go with any coloured shirt.
