under lobe earrings – Pearls make wonderful earrings and are worn by men and women through the ages. What more delicate and desired decoration is there than that gently glowing globe trembling on the earlobe? On a visit to view the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London recently, I was fascinated to see the Imperial State Crown. This is the crown that is worn by Kings and Queens of England when they have been crowned in Westminster Abbey.
See the four, huge drop rings dangling from the centre of the crownmolding? It is thought that two of those fabulous gems were once earrings worn by Queen Elizabeth I of England. Lucky lady!
Today we can all wear pearl earrings plus they are available in a massive variety of styles. First of all you will find the classic and very posh single pearl studs, wearable for many events. I have had mine for years and that I don’t really feel “dressed” till I have put them. Freshwater pearls may be dyed in all the colors of the rainbow and the dyeing doesn’t affect the lustre of the stone, so a set of pearls to match any outfit is definitely on the cards. Put a pearl with a sparkling crystal jewel and you have earrings match to celebration, too.
Pendant pearls don’t need to be a single stone, like Queen Elizabeth’s. The “grape cluster” design is equally dramatic but also delicate. The lovely grape cluster earrings are graceful and timeless. I really like the mix of pale peach pearls with white. It is a combination that just breathes youthfulness and sophistication. For sheer, captivating prettiness, you could have these bell flower earrings with miniature freshwater pearls clustered within a flower and topped with a different white pearl. They’re a perfect present for your fashion conscious lady.
Another favourite is the “shoulder duster” earring! These are extended earrings, nearly to the shoulder and just fabulous for wearing in the day. These Lavender Peach Long Pearl Earrings cost a small Sum of Money. These are no ordinary pearls but Baroque pearls, every one unique. Looking at these romantic gems it is simple to see why they have been once called “mermaid’s tears”.
For something spectacular, keishi and coin pearl clusters are super-sophisticated. There’s something about gun metal gray or black pearls that is actually appealing. The gray and black pearls are all associated with Wisdom in pearl symbolism.
I never cease being amazed at the massive selection of shapes made by pearl oysters. It’d be such fun to use these Purple White Baroque Pearl Earrings!
The purple pearls look for all the world like birds and will come in many different color combinations.
Can you want white, gray, blue, green or pink or a combination of a couple of colors? The variations of form and colour as well as the mixtures of both for these earrings are endless. So, fun and jazzy, cool classic cream or white or sophisticated and tasteful black, gray or gun-metal, pearl earrings will give any outfit a lift!
