Should You Try Mixed South Sea Pearls?

June 3, 2014 by Melissa

Are you looking for a new way to mix up your wardrobe this summer? One of the most popular tropical options is, of course, to wear something from the tropics. South Sea pearls have always been in vogue, but wearing them during the summer can help bring a dash of tropical beauty to any outfit. There are plenty of styles to choose from, but you may want to follow a few simple rules when choosing which type of pearl to wear this summer.

Don’t Be Afraid To Wrap

When choosing a mixed pearl necklace for your outfit, many people are afraid of the wrap, that is wrapping a longer strand of pearls around multiple times to create a layered look. This is a great look with a single color of pearls, but with a mixed color pearl necklace the look is even more striking given the changes in colors that you can achieve by the simple shifting of pearls over the course of a night.

You Can’t Really Go Overboard With Your Look

One of the biggest problems that you may run into with wearing pearls is having too many options to choose from. Wearing your entire pearl collection at one time can look like a bit much, but with mixed colored pearls, you can really go crazy. In fact, you may want to try out some new styles, like using a mixed color pearl necklace as a multi-layered bracelet, balanced with a single strand of larger pearls on the other wrist. When it comes to mixed colors, more is generally better.

Wearing a set of mixed color pearls can take a lot of courage, especially if you are used to wearing a set of plain white pearls on a day-to-day basis, but if you take the two ideas above into account, the result will be spectacular.
