Pearls may have had the old fashioned image of your granny wearing her old pearls, but that couldn’t be further from the image today. There’s no denying the allure of pearls, they are sensual and pretty. Yet far from sweet, todays modern pearls feel bold, strong and modern.
Designers embrace their glamour and timeless appeal over and over again. They were seen on the catwalks of Paris with Lanvin showing their huge versatility.
Can the modern woman wear pearls without looking like grandma?
Louise, MD of Pearls By Fleur says, “Oh definitely! Pearls have come a long way from their old-school, stuffy image and are fresh and beautiful and totally modern. “
We say, give pearls a chance! They look good and they can be worn over and over again! They are flattering to the skin and can be worn by women of all ages. We think pearls are perfect!
Three Ways to Wear Your Pearls Now
1. Layer Your Pearls
For me, the only wear to wear your pearls and to look uber modern is to layer them, wrap them and stack them high. If you are looking for celeb style inspiration- look no further than SJP- she certainly rocks the look. It is a bold and strong look and not for the feint hearted. But get it right and you will have plenty of admiring glances and just wait for the compliments. What more does a girl want! If you pile your pearl necklaces high, we recommend you keep the rest of your accessories simple and let the pearls do the talking. Wear with neutral colours for maximum impact.
Or follow Rihanna’s style with some pearl wrist candy. Pearls By Fleur have the gorgeous Pearl cuff that gives the illusion of lots of pearl bracelets wrapped round your wrist, when in fact it is just one hand crafted pearl wire bracelet. The dark coloured pearls shimmer in the light and display a whole myriad of colours from dark purple to dark blue. We think this is perfect for both your daytime wardrobe or evening glamour. It will quickly become your favourite pearl bracelet that goes with everything. And a steal at just £40!
2. Coloured Pearls
Or choose a different colour pearl necklace to suit your mood. Who says pearls have to be white? Modern means there are no rules to wearing pearls. Dark, peacock coloured pearls symbolise an exotic, mysterious and glamorous appeal. The colour purple also has a royal connection. The very name itself, peacock- conjures up an image of the peacock's plumage and a myriad of dark colours. Wear these dark coloured pearls in the evening with your favourite little black dress.
