Arcane by State Property Is Elegant Pearls With an Edge


If there was ever any doubt as to the cool factor of pearls—and, why would there be, given the mountains of evidence over the past decade or so—then the Arcane collection from State Property would put that right to rest.

Arcane does for pearl—and mother-of-pearl—what a buttery leather jacket does for a white T-shirt and jeans: It’s classic elegance kissed with a bit of rebellion, and it looks good on just about anyone.

“Known for braiding disparate cultures and materials, cues are taken from the convex domes and gold spheres that adorned the era,” reads the collection’s notes on Arcane. “Ideal for those who adorn their bodies with as much discernment as they do their spirit. A murmur held close to the chest, Arcane is a spell with no sound.”

The pieces are indeed spellbinding, from the drama of the Tahitian pearl to the glossy beauty of the akoya. The mother-of-pearl pieces are the ones that feel more on the retro side, while the rest is unequivocally modern.

The brand is aware of its collections’ edgy undertones, describing the Nemara Noir necklace (above) as the “punk rock sister” of the Nemara necklace, an iteration done in yellow gold with akoya pearls.
