Pearls of Wisdom

Seeing as this is the last day in June, this post is certainly late. But, I’m getting it in right under the wire, so it still counts!

Pearls are the traditional birthstone for June and they are often seen in very classic jewelry styles. They conjure up images of blushing brides, first ladies and sweater set wearing suburbanites. Everything that is proper, classic and often boring.

I mean really, ladies, let’s be a little more creative than the old standby black cocktail dress and strand of pearls. One of the coolest things about pearls is how versatile they really are. Yes, they grow in a range of colors from white, cream, golden yellow, pink, grey, black and they can be dyed any color of the rainbow.

Try layering them up with chunky chains and colorful bead necklaces or cool pendants for a more updated look.

I’m actually guilty of buying a strand of teal colored pearls once. I’ve never worn them(no major surprise there) and I’m not sure what I was thinking. I may have had a flash of inspiration to wear them with a chunky turquoise cuff, it was a long time ago, ok?

So back to why pearls are so great and have always been a favorite of mine. They really enhance any skintone and add a glow to your complexion. The more you wear them the better they look, because the natural oil from your skin helps to keep them luminous.

When you wear your pearls, they should be the last thing you put on, so you don’t get hairspray, makeup and perfume on their delicate surface and they should be the first thing you take off.
