From Queen Elizabeth to Coco Chanel, to every woman striving to make a great impression, pearls hit just the right note of sophistication and glamour. As simple or as intricate as you like, pearls are flattering and elegant, whether you are wearing long gleaming ropes of them or just a single, stellar beauty.
Freshwater, cultured, baroque, pearls come in numerous shapes and shades, including white, pink, grey, gold, black and more. The color is often influenced by the color of the pearl-bearing mollusk’s shell. Gifts of pearls have marked occasions from Sweet 16’s to weddings, coronations to graduations. A traditional 30th Anniversary gift, pearls are also a favorite for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and gifts to daughters and granddaughters.
The Lure of the Single Sphere
You can’t deny the appeal of a single, perfectly formed pearl. Honora’s quintessential Pearl Necklace exemplifies the beauty of this art form. One 8.5mm Fresh Water Cultured Pearl perches on a 14 karat gold necklace like the luminous treasure it is. A moon brought to earth, glorious as a white peacock, calm as a dove, it draws the eye to the sheer simplicity of its form and the burnished glow of its lustre.
The Milky Way
Pearls also fare well on a more expansive plain, like the galaxy of pearls on this Alor Freshwater Pearl Bracelet. White Freshwater Pearl “planets” space themselves out along the twists and turns of a contrasting yellow stainless steel universe for a look that is both celestial and playfully chic. Perfect for summer wear, this bracelet also carries nautical, industrial and vintage notes in its sweet perfume. Let us count the ways to wear this….1. by the sea, 2. in the sun, 3. in the park, 4. to dinner al fresco………
The Hardest Working Pearls in Show Business
Perhaps you want something more from your pearls. Your pearls have to be a diva. They have to sing like Maria Callas, paint a picture like Georgia O’Keeffe, soar like Amelia Earhart.

Nothing fills the bill better than this Antique Pearl and Diamond Bracelet from the George Press Estate Collection. Set in 14 karat white gold and embellished with 5.39cts of diamonds, this stunning bracelet is a show-stopper. It will bring down the house every time you wear it!
The Simple Life
Of course, some people prefer the simple life. A ring with the appeal of fresh linen hanging on the line, golden sunshine and a field of white daisies. Marco Bicego knows what you long for, and he is only too happy to provide it with this Mother of Pearl Fashion Ring. From the Lunaria Collection, it is a breath of fresh air personified. Milky white mother of pearl and a golden vanilla wafer setting. Timeless and effortless, it makes the perfect gift for some lucky woman. To clarify, she’s lucky- because you have excellent taste!

Sorry guys, but these pearls clearly are for the girls. Maybe you can find your own pearls somewhere else. We may have some cufflinks. But don’t pout, spoiling your woman can have its own rewards. Try it and see!
