The New Generation of Pearl Jewellery
Pearls are big fashion news. Designs you are more likely to see worn by Grace Jones than by your Nana, all the cool kids are wearing pearls. Oscar De La Renta, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Karen Walker and Meadowlark are just the tip of the pearly-coloured iceberg when it comes to fashion-forward jewellery.
Take Karen Walker's Forbidden Stud and Hoop Earrings as an example. Pearls are being mixed with spiky metals to produce edgier, quirkier pieces. As her new Eden collection suggests, this is what happens when good girls give into desire. And let's be honest, we tend to want what is forbidden, don't we? Eden features earrings, rings and a pendant with white and black pearls, available in sterling silver, yellow gold and rose gold.
Once again, Meadowlark offers a range of cool, but timeless pieces working with baroque freshwater pearls, each with their own natural organic shape. Hot favourite is the Vita Drop Earrings, with their Deco inspired fanned stud.
You will also see pearls on cuffs, collars, trainers, loafers, bags, as button alternatives and everything in between. Gone are the days when long elegant strands of pearls were coupled with a formal ball gown, pearls are creative in every way possible for 2018.
Pearl is the birthstone for June so it's very timely Walker & Hall have introduced the Luna pearl necklace as the new addition to their long line of quality jewellery. The strand features luxurious Akoya pearls, which graduate in size and fasten with a 9ct yellow gold clasp. Furthermore, for the month of June, Walker & Hall are giving away a beautiful pair of matching Akoya pearl stud earrings with every Luna necklace purchased.
Sourced from Japan, Akoya pearls are well known for their excellent lustre and beautiful shape. It's worth remembering that pearls are the traditional gift for 3rd and 30th wedding anniversaries.
