Every year we see a feast of pearls gracing the Red Carpet, TV, Film and the High Street. Pearl earrings, pearl bracelets, pearl necklaces, pearl rings, pearl accessories and even celebrity pearl encrusted faces…Lady Gaga!
What is it about Pearls that lure people into wearing them?
Why have Pearls never gone out of fashion?
How can you achieve Hollywood pearl glam without the price tag?
Symbolising purity, wisdom, beauty and wealth, men and women throughout history have been drawn to pearls. Their story is full of symbolism and romance. From Julius Caesar’s love of pearls, which is said to have been a contributing factor to his invasion of England in 55BC, to Phillip II of Spain giving Mary Tudor as a wedding gift the Peregrina pearl, which became the most highly regarded jewel of the 16th century.
The main beauty of pearls lies in the fact that they glow, reflecting their beauty onto the wearer. This has been recognised since the beginning of civilisation with style leaders throughout time favouring them above other gems.
Such style leaders included Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth I, the French Empress Eugenie, Coco Chanel, Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Diana, Kristin Scott Thomas, Anna Wintour and Miranda Kerr, to name but a few.
From the small selection of style leaders above, you can see that pearls have always been in fashion, and they will continue to be. For who wouldn’t want to wear a gem that makes you continuously look good?!
‘A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.’ – Coco Chanel
