As one of the most renowned representations of social class since the times of Julius Caesar's  rule in Rome, pearls have been one of the most timeless elements of beauty over the years. Whether you’ve bought some Australian pearls online recently, or have gone forward to buy pearl earrings in Melbourne, we know how confusing it can be to wear an outfit that suits your style. 

Whether it be black pearl earrings or more, we’re here to help you walk down the street in style. With pearls on your ears, neck or hands, here’s what you can do:

  • Try the single earring trend

  • Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you must be well aware of the single earring trend. Many people have been experimenting with a single earring dropping down to their neck for an instant lift of energy on their face. 

    While you could do this with different stones, a single earring of pearl is capable of adding a rather modern touch to an otherwise classic element. This trend was taken to the next step when Harry Styles, the renowned English singer-songwriter wore a single pearl earring and heels to the MET Gala in 2019. 

    We believe that the single pearl earring can be worn atop all outfits, with a special impact on semi-formal and formal outfits.

  • Understand the sizes of pearl necklaces

  • If there’s anything that sets a pearl necklace apart from the rest, it’s the kind of impact the length of a necklace can bring to an outfit. Essentially, pearl necklaces are available in four different sizes -

    • Choker (16 inches) - The pearl choker is capable of bringing the ambience of a beautiful and luxurious 1820’s ball to the table. Traditionally worn with evening gowns and formal attire, the pearl choker tends to look its best when complemented with a red lip and a gown or evening dress.

    Princess necklace (18 inches) - The princess necklace is only 2 inches longer than the choker but can bring a whole new difference to your outfit. Unlike the choker, the princess pearl necklace is much more adaptable and can be worn with both casual and formal outfits.

    Pearl Necklace with earrings

    Over time, the layered pearl princess necklace gained its attraction through the signature outfit of Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’ In the movie, she plays the role of a socialite, Holly, whose signature outfit is that of a slim black dress, a layered pearl necklace with a red lip to complement it all.

    While Audrey pulls off the look in both formal and casual setups, in modern times, the pearl princess necklace can be worn with a formal dress or even a black jean with a button-up shirt. The limits to your jewellery and attire are bound only where you allow it to be!

      • Matinee necklace (22-24 inches) - While it might be true that the limit to your jewellery’s use is set only where you allow it to be, the choker and the princess pearl necklaces can make you feel uncomfortable if you place them on top of a normal t-shirt. Whether you’re hoping to wear a pearl necklace to work or on your brunch with friends, the Matinee necklace can be an ideal addition to your outfit.

      • Opera length necklace (30+ inches) - If there’s any necklace that can help complement the beautiful height of a tall woman or man, it’s the opera length necklace. While this also works ideally for women with a larger bust, the opera length necklace can help in complementing the height and curves of an individual. If you truly want to experiment with the outfit, you can layer different sizes of pearl necklaces on top of your attire!

    • Is it important to wear pearl earrings with a pearl necklace?

    • One of the top queries that rest in the mind of an individual terrified by the concept of fashion would be - “Is it important to wear pearl earrings with a pearl necklace? Can’t I wear pearl earrings without a pearl necklace? If I wear pearl earrings, necklace and a pearl bracelet, will I be wearing too much pearl?”

      So many questions, so little time to decide on an outfit. Wearing pearl jewellery can seem to be quite an intimidating act for several individuals. With many deeming it to be the wear of a ‘lady’ and others fearing that it cannot possibly work on casual outfits, we’re here to debunk all of the doubts you might have about the pearls of Melbourne, Australia. 

      Firstly, it’s not important to wear pearl earrings with pearl necklaces to be able to feel comfortable in it. Even though the popular belief speaks about the need for pearl consistency in jewellery, the introduction of trends like the single pearl earring has opened doors to a completely new trend in fashion.

      Moreover, one of the top reasons why fashion is adored by people worldwide is because of the individuality it allows one to embrace. In the world of fashion, it doesn’t matter what others think - if you’re comfortable with the clothes you wear and the accessories you put on, no one stands in the way of your beauty and you. 

      Gone are the days when beauty rested on the forefront of societal standards of eurocentric allure. Embrace the fashion standard that you want to follow; experiment and enjoy - that’s what fashion is all about.
