Pearl fashion jewellery is a lovely choice for creating a look of fashion elegance. Pearls will always remain a traditional, classical piece of jewellery that will never go out of style. Pearls have always been steeped in custom. But, quite recently pearls have been reorganized and have really turned into a glamorous, fun part of jewellery that can be accessorized with any item of clothing…including your jeans.
While conventional pearl jewellery is always going to make a statement, you can have much more fun and use them as fashionable, modern pieces of jewellery any time – night or day. Different styles of pearl necklaces are available as chokers, multi strands, in very long lengths, and many others.
They can be perfectly mixed with semi-precious stones or gems, or they can stand unaided. Pearls are readily available in both white gold, gold and silver. If you are planning to purchase pearl jewellery online such as from the PearlsOnly website, here are some important things to remember:
Type of pearls
Freshwater pearls are the least costly pearls and generally come from China. They are also available in different colours, sizes and shapes. The cost of refined pearls is somewhat higher, and they are available in different sizes. Simulated pearls are popular, particularly with fashion jewellery as the cost is much more reasonable. They are available in a variety of non-traditional sizes and colors.
Understand your sizes
Pearl sizes are always calculated in mm (millimeters) and the bigger they are more they will cost. Pearls normally vary from 3mm to 15mm but 6.5mm is the average size.
When choosing pearls, those free from blemishes will be of higher value. The best place to check pearls for blemishes is under a light. If you are purchasing online the seller must tell you if there are any blemishes.
Faux or Real pearls
The price of good quality, real pearls is going to be much higher than faux pearls. If cared for properly, genuine pearls will last a long time and you will even be able to pass them down through the generations.
Caring for Pearls
The oil from your skin will keep the pearls moisturized, but you should try not to let them come into contact with any perfumes or cosmetics. Never wash your pearls in hot or cold water and follow the care instructions which come with them.
Rings of pearls on material are becoming as popular as pearl necklaces and pearl earrings. There are different styles, from the bib necklace which is quite spectacular, to the big necklace, the collar necklace, the multi-strand necklace, the opera necklace, and the tassel necklace.
Pearls don’t need to be kept for special occasions, and you can use them to create either a conventional or modern look. You can purchase faux or real pearls depending on your budget, the choice is yours!
