When it comes to pearls, most people, including myself think of very well behaved girls, grandmothers and the 50’s. Lately though, designers have been breathing new life into pearls (thankfully) and incorporating them into funkier, bolder designs so we can all take advantage of a little beauty secret our mothers and grandmothers are all well versed with. The nacre of pearls is universally flattering for any complexion—it’s like wearing a light diffuser around your face. Nacre, also known as mother of pearl, is an organic-inorganic composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer; it also makes up the outer coating of pearls. It is strong, resilient, and iridescent.
Chanel, one of the classical pearl jewelry fashion brands, proposed them on the runway for the autumn and winter 2016-2017 collection and they did not hold back. Take a look at our latest Cultured Pearl Choker, and in the words of Coco Chanel, remember, “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.”
