Pearl EarringsPearl earrings and jewels are classicly beautiful and have been collected and worn for centuries. Some have said that Pearl is the most popular gemstone of all time. Well, Pearl earrings and jewels are certainly having their time in the sun this Fashion Season 2019 but with a twist. Stories and pictures on the runway and off, are focused on the ways designers and trendsetters have taken the classic Pearl earring and turned it literally on its head. The big Pearl earring and jewel story of 2019, is putting Pearls into the fun, pop-art, "statement" genre. 'Everything old is new again' and the reverse is true, especially in fashion. The eighties saw many artist/designers, playing with the ideas of art and design, with oversized, sculptural, and cutting edge non-traditional pieces as well. Going back further to the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras, Pearls were utilized in gorgeously designed and produced accessories that were actual works of art. One of the style buzz words in 2019 is ‘bold’ aka 'statement', in earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, clothing items, etc. 'Statement' Pearl earrings have been shown as; single earrings, meaning you actually wear only one, or in great showy pairs which are they are usually very sculptural, or oversized, or slinky. Kind of like the jewels you might wake up in after a night with showgirls and their art-curator friends! Bold Pearls! Organic oversized Pearls in hoops, cuffs earrings, very long Pearl strand earrings, giant Pearl earrings with gemstones graduating in size, fan-like ear cuffs with sea urchin looking settings, and so on. So, it’s Pearl time, be it the classic designs or the new ‘bold’ Pearls, it’s time to show off your Pearl earrings and jewels.
Pearl Drop EarringsThe painter and the model of 'The Girl with the Pearl Earring', had no clue how deeply this iconic painting would effect style, art fashion and imagination throughout time! Pearl drop earrings, whether using classic white, grey and black Pearls or colourful pink, orange or yellow Pearls etc., Pearl drop earrings, are sensuous and intoxicating and always a head turner. Since a trend for Pearls right now are “bold” and “statement” accessories, you might think the classic Pearl drop earring would lose out? Not a chance. First of all classic looks are always going to have a place.
Pearl BraceletWhether freshwater or cultured, all real Pearls are purely organic, meaning made from nature with naturally occurring minerals. All real Pearls are created by crustacean water creatures, called molluscs, who make their homes in the seas, lakes and man-made farms. A Pearl bracelet can be a strand of Pearls or have a few sprinkled through.out. Or if it is in the 2019 trend crowd, it could be a cuff with two HUGE Pearls anchoring each end, or a chain with 5 inch long strands of Pearls hanging down. What’s your Pearl bracelet preference? Classic or bold? Maybe both? At least with fashion, we the people have the power of choice. How refreshing and fun!
