What Is The Best Accessory When Wearing Large Pearls?

November 4, 2014 by Melissa

The biggest trend in pearls right now is the move to larger and larger pearls themselves. You’ll see this when you look at the latest looks at movie premieres and when you go out to big events. The question that you may be asking yourself is, what’s the best choice for an accessory when you are wearing large pearls.

Something like a large pearl necklace will be a great choice for a business or networking event, but you’ll want to gauge the group that you’ll be with and approach the situation appropriately. A big, bold necklace may be great when you are around people who you manage, but it may not be a great choice when trying to land that new job or meet people in a different industry.

Bold accessories, or something a little more toned down?

The idea of having bold accessories with larger pearls is a new concept, and something that needs to be handled carefully. When bold accessories are worn together, they tend to amplify each other. That’s why a bold Tahitian pearl necklace and a big, beautiful pearl ring will have a far greater impact than either one by itself.

When you’re looking to really make an impact at an event, it can be smart to wear a pair of bold accessories together, but often you may want to keep the statement pieces to just one per outfit.

One common mistake is to wear a big, bold statement piece and pair it with a much less bold item. An example of this would be to wear a 13-15mm pearl necklace with a 10mm pair of pearl studs. This can actually hurt your look more than wearing two bold items, because the pearls will seem mismatched when compared to each other.

If you want a bold look that combines more than one set of pearls, then you’ll want to make sure that the sizes match, or you can choose from one of our pearl sets for perfect sizing and a matching color palette every time.
