Even if the bride’s personal style is more modern and edgy, one’s wedding is still a sentimental and romantic occasion.  Though Grandmother’s loan of a classic pearl necklace, pearl bracelet or pearl earrings may well satisfy the “something borrowed” item, her traditional pearls will never look old-fashioned if combined with a modern, edgy pearl piece with architectural details.  Pearls are romantic and brides want to the luxury and elegance that pearls bring to her overall look.
