Pearls, simple and classic or edgy and unique?

2 min read

With Easter approaching (and soon, Mother's Day), I have pearls on the brain. 

Pearls are great for spring and moms. You really can't go wrong with pearl jewelry this time of year for yourself or gift giving. 

Knowing your pearl personality is key to picking the right design (for yourself or your mom).

Pearls are a classic and every woman should have them at some point in life. 

But often, pearls make us think of a traditional look, maybe that of your grandmother in a simple strand of pearls.

If you are more traditional in your style and tend to like structure and order, a simple drop is the perfect pearl look for you. 

There is always a time and place for simple and classic, no matter your personality. 

But sometimes a little adventure is in order...

If you are the more curious type and like to think outside the box, asymmetry is the perfect look for you. 

I love adding a sculptural look to a classic material.

By designing pearl necklaces with balanced asymmetry, the pieces have a unique modern twist. 

Sometimes, we're a complex mix of timeless and unique...

Mixing up metals and colors can be a great way to introduce a bit of spark and pizazz. 

These gold vermeil necklaces mixed with pearls are a great way to express a reliable and timeless sense of style with a wink of individuality. 

Are you a balancing act of bold but understated?

A truly unique and one of a kind pearl is the perfect direction for you...

Inspired by the stamen of a flower, this pearl drop necklace has an especially unique sense of character. 

These necklaces are a fantastic expression of unique personality without needing to scream your individuality from the rooftops.  

 

Of course, no pearl necklace is complete without pearl earrings!

On their own or paired with a necklace, pearl earrings often look great with anything. These simple and classic pearl earrings are a great accompaniment to any necklace, especially paired with more unconventional pieces for a balance of unparalleled individuality.
