Wear it well

It has been said the pearls are the little black dress of jewellery.

In an article for the Sydney Morning Herald, Dijanna Mulhearn writes that your jewellery should be a reflection of your personal style and we think it should also reflect your mood.

For a classic look that will work equally well in the office or for a social occasion, try an elegant mid-length string of pearls teamed with simple drop or stud earrings. For something more exotic, focus the attention away from your neckline with some stunning chandelier drop earrings that showcase a different coloured centrepiece pearl.

If you’re after a look that’s more edgy and contemporary, wear several pearl necklaces of varying lengths all at one time and pair with a longer string of pearls wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet. You can experience an all together different kind of look wearing a vintage piece of pearl jewellery which often sits equally comfortably with jeans and a jacket, as it does with a top-knot and heels.

Mulhearn gives some excellent advice on choosing a particular style to suit your shape:

  • Petites, wear your pearls on your sleeve by cascading bracelets down your wrist. Pop in a cuff, bangle or watch to give it your personal stamp.
  • Athletic physiques, draw the eye up to your face with pearl drop earrings.
  • For a more voluptuous figure, go big with baubles around the neck and down the chest or look to a perfectly placed brooch.
  • Busty shapes, keep your pearls small and short at the neck or shift the focus to a big bauble on your hand.
  • Larger frames, look for multi-stranded pearls of different diameters and lengths. Drape them over your chest and team them with fine-metal chains.

Wear your pearls with confidence and affection knowing that if diamonds are a girl's best friend, pearls are your reliable big sister.
