To contemplate a pearl is an exercise in the appreciation of persistence. It’s hard to gaze upon the spherical beauty of a pearl without contemplating the oyster that patiently deposited layer after layer after layer to form it. Pearls are the embodiment of the idea that slow, steady effort brings beautiful rewards. That’s why they’re a fashion classic.
Pearl horse jewelry is ideal with this fall’s focus on heavy, rich fabrics and tweedy textures. Their subtle luminesce adds shimmer and shine. Pearl earrings are a perpetual favorite, and we’ve been seeing lots of people choose long pearl necklaces.
Pearls are available in a wide range of colors and shapes. Most familiar is the classic white round pearl. Pearls can also be oblong, teardrop shaped, shaped like grains of rice, or irregular, large and lumpy: a shape often referred to as potato. Colors pearls come in include white, gray (a big hit this fall is horse jewelry with gray pearls), yellow, pink, and even black.
