Pearls will always be in fashion. With their ageless style & beauty you can wear them with almost any outfit for any occasion.

You can dress them up or dress them down. No matter how you wear them, throughout fashion history, women have looked to pearls to add a touch of class and elegance to their look.

My husband bought me my first piece of pearl jewellery, a necklace from Broome, 20 years ago and I have been hooked ever since.  I now love to find ways to work my pearls into my outfits.

Here are my tips to get the best look from your favourite pearl accessories:

  • To achieve an eye-catching look, pair with rich solid colours. And for a more refined look, pearls also look beautiful with light, subtle colours.
  • A pearl necklace conjures an image of confidence and sophistication. With this in mind you could wear a single short string of pearls in the office or to a business meeting.
  • For a bride on her special day, delicate pearl teardrop earrings go beautifully with a strapless bridal gown to give her that graceful and refined look.
  • With that little black dress that fits you just perfectly, a pearl pendant will add an effortless touch of elegance to transform your outfit from charming to stunning.
  • Pearls are so versatile, add a long string of pearls, doubled over to your T-shirt, jeans and denim jacket for a modern and edgy look.
  • For a unique look, mix your pearls with other jewellery, by layering with a gold necklace or even a diamond necklace. You can do the same with a pearl bracelet. The effect can be quite dramatic.

    With so many different types and colours of pearls you can always find something to suit your personality and lifestyle. Have fun mixing and matching and discover the timeless beauty of the ever versatile pearl.
