You can never go wrong with a perennial favorite like pearls, but modern times call for a modern twist.  Renowned jewelry historian and trend expert Vivienne Becker described “a new world trend” toward contemporary pearls. “It’s the season’s most thrilling remake of an all-time classic: the pure, pristine pearl is in the midst of a modernizing makeover, rebelling against its prim image and taking its place at the heart of some of the coolest jewelry on offer this Christmas.” Check out pearl jewelry’s new cool and give a little fun to your best girl.  Try a chic, regal rail bracelet featuring Akoya pearls swimming in a chanel of gold and diamonds.  Or add a sweeping finesses to her lovely face shape with singular golden pearl drop earrings that dangle from an organic pattern of sparkling yellow and white diamond leaves. Bring out the child-like wonder of her every gesture by adorning her hand with effervescent pearls from the Bubble Collection by Sean Gilson for Assael. She’ll start so many conversations, every time she shakes hands or waves hello.

K.I.S.S. – Keep It Sweet & Simple

If you really want her to wear what you give her, keep it simple.  Anything but boring, minimal designs are highly treasured for their versatility as they can be worn with many different fabrics, textures, colors and styles of clothing. A South Sea pearl bracelet wraps a wrist in radiance, and the diamonds add a meaningful dash of sweetness.  Chic, simple pearl drop earrings that dangle from a curve of tiny pave diamonds offer a very versatile style that she could wear everyday or for special occasions. Opt for a simple but bold Tahitian pearl ring if she already has her pearl favorites. The mystery and allure of darker pearls offer contrast and excitement when needed for darker moods or all black fashion ensembles.  

Color Her World
