Here at Obsessed by Pearls we are loving the many new ways that people are planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. We’ve heard about Galentine’s for single females; Palentine’s for friends of all genders, female engagement proposals (#proposetoo), “commitment jewelry” and more. There are so many wonderful ways to honor the people we love in all aspects of our lives. With pearls listed by Vogue as one of the biggest jewelry trends of the Autumn/Winter fashion season, luster is in high demand. But it never goes out of style. History has proven that every time pearls become a “trend,” it lasts for more than a decade, long surpassing the typical trend’s lifespan. Luxury pearls are the perfect way to add some lasting luster to the faces you love most.
Put an Earring on It
Maybe you’re not quite ready to take Beyoncé’s advice or perhaps you already have “put a ring on it.” An alternate approach for V-Day 2020 is to put an earring on it. Earrings are a fabulous gift for women of all ages because we ladies need so many of them. We change earrings almost as frequently as we change our outfits. And pearl earrings add a hint of radiance because the luster from the pearls reflects onto the face.
Got a blue-eyed babe? Try matching her eyes with these aquamarine and Tahitian pearl mobile earrings. Another personal touch is to match her hair length – ladies with longer hairstyles, need longer earrings. Assael’s chain hoops with Akoya pearls sway with her every movement, catching the eye with a youthful sophistication. And if she is always on-the-go, match her lifestyle with versatile earrings that convert easily from corporate to casual or from day to night wear. Earrings with removable drops are like two earrings in one. They also allow your giftee to take part in the current mismatched earring trend only when she wants to – wearing the pearl drop on one side but not the other.
Galentine’s or Palentine’s – Gifts for Girlfriends or Your Single Sis
All of us have that ‘sister from another mother’ who always makes life better. This year brighten her V-Day with bubbles … the long-lasting kind. The Bubble collection by Sean Gilson for Assael is a fresh, fun way for her to wear pearls. Clustered at the ear, dangling from an uber-trendy “stick” or “stiletto” style earring or peeking through the fingers in a playful ring, the Bubble designs gather the pearls in a thoughtful and delightful way.
Or lift up your best gal pal with luster! The simple charm of a pearl drop earring is not only right on trend (see Dior A/W 2020 collection) but also, it’s eternal and will serve her well for many occasions and memory-making days. The award-winning Flex bracelet by Sean Gilson for Assael is another wonderful option for your bestie. The chic design pairs well with any outfit and the literal flexibility of the gold means she can put it on herself, no clasp, no hinge required, empowering her to dress herself in luxury whenever she needs to or whenever she wants to.
Not Just for the Ladies – Gender Fluid Pearls
ICYMI (in case you missed it), pearls are no longer exclusively for the ladies. Pearls make a wonderfully gender fluid gem, and some guys have taken note! Several male celebs have been enjoying the luster of pearls lately. Singer/Songwriter Harry Styles and Hip-Hop artist and Rapper Asap Rocky have been seen sporting single and double-strand pearl necklaces. Nick Jonas performed at the recent Grammy’s wearing a pearl choker. Assael Akoya pearl strands come in all lengths and millimeter sizes, so adorning your man with pearls is simply a matter of thoughtful selection. Or get him a chic pair of pearl studs or baroque pearls drop earrings like Shaun Ross wore to the Grammy’s – you can borrow them whenever your partner is not wearing them!
Commitment Jewelry – True Love Deserves Luxury that Lasts
Valentine’s is also one of the biggest nights of the year for getting engaged and/or making lasting commitments. But the age-old tradition of the diamond engagement ring appears to be fading. Emma Stone got engaged with a pearl ring recently. And many LGBTQ couples are expressing their commitments with matching or similar bands. Eternal love does deserve a unique and lasting symbol, but in today’s world, the form of that symbol is the choice of the person who wears it. Assael has their own version of a “three stone ring” featuring a center stone of either a white pearl or a wonderfully colorful pearl with beautiful gemstones on either side. Assael also has a “forever” bangle that wraps the wrist in pearls and wears well with everything, so it can easily be worn every day, just like a commitment ring.
No matter how you celebrate V-Day this year, do it the luxury way. True love deserves luxury that lasts. Precious gems and luxury pearls provide lifelong radiance and luster that continue to bring joy and devotion for many years to come. Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy Palentine’s Day! Long may your love continue to thrive.
