Tricks to Wear Pearls

  • Formal occasions– When you dress up for a formal occasion such as a black-tie dinner party, it’s best to keep your accessories simple to achieve a classic and elegant look. A beautiful single-stranded freshwater or Akoya pearl necklace paired with matching earrings can instantly add glamour to your little black dress. Depending on the colour, you may even want to accessorise your outfit with a multi-coloured pearl strand or a bracelet to achieve a more contemporary look. For a bold and flamboyant style, South Sea pearls can be great to highlight your face and neck. With their large size and stunning gold colour, you can be certain heads will turn wherever you go.
  • Weddings– As a symbol of health and purity, pearls are perfect for bridal wear. On your wedding day, select a shade of pearls that matches the colour of your wedding dress. If your gown is white, then the bride’s pearl jewellery should be white as well. If there are pearls on your wedding gown and veil, the colour of the pearls you select to wear should match closely to those on your dress and veil. Remember to keep your look chic and elegant and not to wear too many pieces. The princess length (17-19 in.) or the choker (14-16 in.) is probably the best to complement your dress. After all, you want the focus to be on your dress and not on your accessories. To accentuate your neckline, dangled pearl earrings will bring a very romantic look when paired with a sophisticated up-do hairstyle.
  • Work– When choosing pearl jewellery to wear at work, go for something that is stylish but simple. You want to keep your look professional and not over-exaggerated. Pearl stud earrings are the all-time favourites and a beautiful strand of pearls can give you a confident and polished look. Pearl pendants are also a great choice when you want a more subtle and contemporary effect.
  • Casual – With everyday casual attire, pearls can be fun to wear. Be bold to try out pearls with different shapes and colours. You would be amazed to see how they transform your look. Multi-coloured pearl strands work very well with a simple white shirt paired with jeans. Layering up your neck with a long necklace can create different effects that are fashionable and stylish. Once again you want the pearl jewellery to complement your attire and bring out your personality. Accessorise your outfit with Tahitian pearls can give you an exotic and sophisticated look.
