How to Give The Gift of Pearls

Pearls of Joy x The Culture of Pearls

Pearls are the ultimate timeless gift They have been worn and cherished since antiquity and their allure continues to this day. Worn as a pair of ear studs by an elegant woman or a necklace by a stylish man, pearls are making waves everywhere.

Pearls also make the most wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Whether it’s a surprise gift for her, a special gift for him or a 30th anniversary gift, the gift of pearl jewelry is not only appropriate, but also perfect.

What Makes Pearl Jewelry the Best Gift?

It cannot be denied that pearls are one of the loveliest gems on the planet. They are an organic gem with deep meanings - beauty, purity, wisdom, wealth. Worn by kings as a symbol of their power and by brides as a promise of a long and happy married life, pearls are timeless in their appeal.

Pearls are also a very versatile gem and give their wearers so much with which to personalize their look. It’s quite possible to look super cool wearing an Akoya pearl pendant with t-shirt and denims but to look equally great wearing it with a little black dress. What’s more, a pair of peacock Tahitian pearl stud earrings will look just as attractive on a woman as on a man.

Pearls, therefore, make the ideal gifts.
