The Two Sides of Pearls

Pearl jewelry, more popular than ever, has settled into two distinct design camps. One, lush and luxurious, mixes exquisite South Seas or Tahitian pearls with diamonds and gemstones or drapes the body with piles of pearls fastened with a magnificent clasp. The other, calm, minimalist, and Zen-like, uses—in the words of A Chorus Line—one singular, sensational pearl as the design focal point. Each aesthetic has its devotees, and examples of both are available in a wide range of price points. A simple, single pearl drop is always appropriate for daytime or casual wear, while the rich look of a pearl-and - gemstone necklace perfectly complements this season’s extra-special party dressing. The two styles can even be mixed and matched—imagine a thick twist of baroque freshwater pearls accented by a single, perfect South Seas pearl drop at the hollow of the throat. IPDC Winners Anno
