As the weather cools, and we welcome the gorgeous palette of Autumn once more, a well-chosen suite of pearls can be the PERFECT compliment to many ensembles.
Whether you're headed back to campus for a new school year, or just cozying up in a warm sweater with some hot apple cider, a strand of pearls or a pair of classic pearl studs is sure to help warm you up this Season.
Meghan from The Seventh Sphinx recently styled a bold blue pencil skirt, cream colored turtle neck and our favorite, pearls!
With this outfit she's paired a very nice set of natural golden Akoya pearl earrings (from our friends at PP) and one of our lavender metallic pearl strands I picked up in Hong Kong.
What I really like about this outfit is how Meghan "matches" golden Akoyas with lavender metallic pearls. I think too often with pearls we try to make everything uniform, but Meghan proves, pearls don't need to match to look great ...

The quintessential strand of pearls for any jewelry or pearl aficionado would be the 7.0-7.5mm Akoya necklace.
Available in a variety of lengths, this pearl necklace is our most popular for a good reason: large enough to catch the eye, yet demure enough to wear everyday. Its brilliant luster and thick nacre will quickly make it your favorite piece of jewelry.
Available in AA+ or AAA grade quality, all our strands are hand-knotted between each pearl for security. The pearls are strung with 100% silk thread and finished with a 14K white or yellow gold clasp.
