Be a Queen this long weekend
Pearls have had a resurgence over recent years, present on runways around the globe, high street clothing houses and countless fashion magazines. But somewhere you will almost always see a string of pearls is on Queen Elizabeth.
Why does Queen Elizabeth always wear pearls?
Apparently, she has 3 sets of (almost) identical three-strand pearl necklaces. The first gifted from her grandfather, King George V, the second set she had made in 1952 from family pearls, and the third set was a coronation gift from the Emir of Qatar. The latter supposedly a little longer and bigger than the other two, is ideal for formal evening events.
It just goes to shows when you adore a piece of jewellery, you are more willing to treasure it and wear it as much as you can. Queen Elizabeth has other firm favourites too. Other components of her signature style include her vast collection of Launer handbags, Cornelia James gloves (the only gloves she has worn only since 1947) and her wardrobe of bright and cherry outfits (apparently the Queen does this so people can easily see her in large crowds).
Don’t limit yourself to thinking pearls stop at necklaces. Fashion heavyweight, Karen Walker’s offers a star-studded range of pearl earrings and rings from her Forbidden collection. Or Meadowlark’s refined Vita drop earrings in silver or yellow gold.
What do pearls represent?
Pearls symbolise wisdom through experience and loyalty. They are thought to calm, strengthen relationships and protect.
Enjoy our Queens Birthday weekend special!
And to celebrate the Queens birthday weekend, Walker and Hall are giving away a FREE pair of 9mm Akoya pearl studs with every order over $940. We think she’s done amazingly well and not sure if we’d be up for too many social engagements at the age of 94!
Why not treat yourself to something new, but timeless, and feel like a Queen.
