Pearls are versatile enough for every occasion and budget. From discreet minimalism to being the centre of attention, you can easily style pearl jewelry according to your needs.
The big trend is to layer them – get multiple strands of pearls in different lengths. You can either layer pearl on pearl or mix ’n match it with a variety of materials. Gold looks especially good with pearl jewelry. Also remember that white is not the only color that pearls are available in. For the classy look, try pink, yellow, grey or blue pearls. If you are up for high fashion, keep black Tahitian pearls in mind too. Lavender, green, peach, brown and silver colored pearls are available too. Faux pearl jewelry is available in an even larger variety of colours.
Layered pearl jewelry is not only for your neck. Chunky pearl bracelets are a high fashion style statement.
For the ears, long pearl danglers and chandeliers are in vogue. Single pearls studs set in geometric gold frames are ideal for day time use and work wear. [Image: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/361413938819339507/]
