How to Wear Pearl Jewelry

June 25, 2013 by Emma

For centuries, jewelry has been a revered by women as a symbol of status and opulence. Gemstones, diamonds, silver and gold jewelry remain popular accessories for women even today.

Historically afforded only by royalty, jewelry making began with the hand crafting of natural gems and precious metals for kings and queens.

One such naturally occurring gemstone is pearl. Legend has it that pearls have been used by women in their ornaments since as early as 520 B C. Known for their classical beauty these dainty beads are revered by women even today.

Here are some tips compiled by The Pearl Source on the best ways to wear pearl jewelry:

Skin Tone
Pearls come in a host of colors. From the classic white to the bold black, you need to choose one which suits your skin tone. The general rule of thumb is that golden and cream pearls best complement dark or olive skin tones while pale complexions are flattered by rose colored hues. However, the classic white colored ones complement all skin types and one cannot go wrong with them.

Everyday Pearl Jewelry
Pearls are simple enough to be worn on a daily basis and add a touch of fun to boring casual outfits. Style your casual denims and top with a contrasting pearl necklace. Alternatively you can pair your skirt and blouse with baroque style pearls in different colors or pearl strands of different lengths to add extra dimension. If you want to wear something minimal, then opt for a simple pearl bracelet or pearl earrings.

Wearing Pearls to Work
Pearls are so subtle that they can easily be worn to the office. Pearls add sophistication to an outfit without drawing too much attention, making them ideal for the workplace.

When choosing pearls to wear to work, opt for muted hues. A simple strand of pearls will enhance the look of your attire without appearing out of place or gaudy. While choosing the length, remember that it should not fall below your neck line.

Evening Out
When paired with an evening gown or outfit, opt for pearls which will highlight the dress. If you are wearing a monochrome dress, pair it with contrasting colored pearl jewelry. Dangling pearl earrings look great with strapless gowns, while sleeveless attires pair well with a pearl bracelet.
