A Timeless and Elegant Accessory

Throughout history, pearls have been a popular choice of adornment and were presented as gifts to Chinese royalty as early as 2300 BC. Their prevalence can also be seen in ancient Rome, where pearl jewellery was perceived as the ultimate status symbol which showcased wealth, power and authority.

Real pearls maintained their popularity for many centuries following, and it was not until the invention of the crafted pearl in the nineteenth century that they became accessible by a wider demographic of people who could now afford it. The popularity of this iridescent object is evident in fashion history, where they were worn by people for many centuries.

The pearl’s simple design and unfussy finish means that it is universally sought after. They go with most outfits and suit all skin tones, making them a staple in every jewelry collection. Throughout history and to the modern day, they are considered classy and stylish and have adorned the necks, wrists and fingers of everyone from the rich and famous on red carpets through to the ordinary man and woman.

At Majorica, we are passionate about all things pearls – and we are here to share a few tips on how best to accessorise them.

Wearing Pearl Earrings – Formal Outfits

Pearl stud earrings are the perfect accessory for formal or evening attire.

This is because pearl studs are very simple. Unlike statement pieces, they don’t demand attention, and can be worn in a way that doesn’t detract from your carefully selected garments. Whether you are wearing a little black dress, one of your finest evening gowns or a structured business suit – pearl jewelry and formal wear is the perfect pair as they are a subtle yet stylish touch that completes all types of elegant outfits without overpowering them.

They are great for formal occasions as they look smart, neat and elegant – yet they can also add a touch of vintage glamour when worn with full length gowns.

From pencil skirts and business attire through to a cocktail dress or a full length gown- a pearl accessory is the final addition for all formal wear and takes you from work to play effortlessly. Simply pop on a pair of earrings with your favourite dress, best necklace or other accessories and enjoy how they enhance the finished look.

For black dresses, we recommended small white pearl earrings for their beautiful simplicity, such as our Earrings Lyra 12mm. Longer, fancier dresses can handle something more obvious so we would suggest pearl drop earrings such as our Giselle sterling drop earrings. These look amazing with spaghetti strap or shoulder dresses, as they draw attention to the neck and collarbone area, as well as the outfit itself.

How to Wear Pearl Stud Earrings – Casual Outfits

While pearl earrings or a pearl necklace are the perfect pairing for formal attire – they also work brilliant for a more casual look. They smarten up relaxed outfits, and can add something special to looks which feel underwhelming or incomplete.

For example, the refined look of a pearl bracelet or pearl drop earrings works surprisingly well with relaxed, cool-looking clothes such as summer dress and leather jacket, or black turtleneck paired with skinny jeans. They create a delightful and unexpected clash which contrasts nicely, and are the ideal accessory for anyone who doesn’t stick to the rules or who has their own unique personal style.

They also look good when worn with a silver or gold chain, and add a timeless charm to more modern or contemporary looks. Similarly is the case for old t-shirts and jumpers, which are given a new lease of life when worn with something like a multi strand pearl bracelet. This can be achieved by layering unisex stretch bracelets such as our adjustable serena bracelet which comes in different colours.

From a boho look through to a more classic look – a pair of pearl earrings look great no matter what as they look simultaneously cool yet elegant. Whatever your style or personal fashion sense may be, pearl earrings and pearl necklaces are the perfect staple to have to hand.

How to Wear Pearls – Picking the Right Pearl Earrings

Although we have established that pearl earrings are a timeless accessory that go with nearly everything – it’s important to ensure you get the right type of jewelry that best suits your facial features and skin tone.

For example, it is believed that people with cool undertones suit silver jewellery, whilst those with warm undertones should opt for accessories with a golden hue. While we believe there are no rules in fashion, we do think that some types of pearl earrings suit some people more than others – so it’s essential to find a pair which complements your unique beauty.

It is helpful to consider what you want your outfit and look to achieve. For example, wearing pearl drop earrings are more detailed and will thus draw attention to your face and surrounding areas, while plainer, smaller studs – though pretty – are less noticeable.

Finding your perfect pearl studs or pearl drop earrings is also dependent on factors such as your face shape, features and personal style. It is useful, therefore, to be aware of your own face and colouring, the clothes in your wardrobe and what pearl accessories are practical for your lifestyle.

When searching for your dream pearl stud earrings or pearl necklace, it is best to shop around and try to envisage what the jewelry would look like when it is worn.
