When I think of pearl jewelry, I think “classic”. There’s something about the beauty of pearls that is so feminine and makes you look put-together instantly. I tend to gravitate towards pearl jewelry when I need to get a little extra dressed up– like for a job interview or special work function. You could say they are the “little black dress” in the jewelry world and are a must for every modern working woman. Most of us associate pearls with the pretty and pristine white version, but there are actually many more types, shapes and colors available.
Pearl-Lang has recently unveiled their spring collection, which features one-of-a-kind baroque pearls. Unlike the classic round shape that most people are familiar with, these non-traditional gems have noticeably irregular shapes and exhibit extraordinary luster with beautiful orient. Each piece is unique, which means you’ll never find two pearls that are identical. This collection features keshi pearl bracelets and necklaces in charming natural pastel colors as well as in elegant white. Keshi, also known as seed pearls, are completely free-form without the presence of bead nuclei mostly found in saltwater cultured pearls. To top it off, their luster is incredibly intense and long-lasting.
If you’re like me, you knew little about pearls before reading this post. Pearl-Lang has an awesome section on their website called “How to Buy Pearls“, which educates customers on the different terminology (luster, size, shape, color, surface, nacre quality, and matching. ) and the difference between quality pearls and the fakes. For example, the more lustrous the pearl is, the brighter its’ reflection is and the more valuable it is. After looking over all the different variations, I think my next set of pearls won’t be the standard white ones, but maybe one of the darker, Tahitian colored pearls.
Pearls are also gorgeous for weddings, and since I have one coming up, they’ve been on my mind. I haven’t looked at dresses yet, so I’m not sure if I’m leaning towards a dress decked out in diamonds, lace or pearl accents. Pearls are also nice for the bridesmaid’s jewelry– I wore dainty pearl earrings and a matching necklace for my cousin Monica’s wedding two summers ago where I was a bridesmaid.
