I truly believe that pearls are to be cherished for a lifetime and passed down to future generations, hand in hand with pearls of wisdom from a life well lived. As the world’s oldest gemstone, pearls were treasured by Romans and Egyptians as far back as the 5th Century BC and considered gifts from the gods. Over the thousands of years of wear, pearls have become known to represent wisdom, integrity, purity and love, bringing wellness and good fortune to the wearer. Regardless of the decade, pearl jewellery represents elegance and class.
Pearls starred in the early 2000’s as a classic addition to the outfits of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, in the Sex and the City television show which ran from 1998 – 2004. The character incorporated designer and couture outfits, complimented by both classic pairings and over-the-top lashings of pearl strands. The fashion choices by this character have cemented Carrie Bradshaw as a style icon for this decade. The magnificence of pearls to transcend this time period remaining at the height of elegance and sophistication pays tribute to the virtues they embody.
Looking back at the phenomenal changes in lifestyle and culture, it is truly remarkable that this gemstone remains beloved throughout generations. A timeless natural beauty. Pearl jewelry catches the eye because of its serene elegance. Sometimes the simplest things are the most beautiful. A pearl earring is enough to dispel all doubt. Due to its timeless elegance, pearl jewelry never falls out of fashion. It can be worn with almost anything; after all, it serves to accentuate the healthy color of the skin rather than the clothes a person wears.
