Pearls Are the Way to Woo for V-Day this Year!

According to our favorite fashion guru Vogue magazine, “Pearls have become so popular that you can’t even scroll through your Instagram feed or a street style gallery without spotting them on the ears of a stylish woman. The good news is that because of their lovely and unique nature, pearls also make for a beautiful and stylish gift for Valentine’s Day.”  We couldn’t agree more!  Here is a fabulous selection of some Assael favorites to help you express your eternal love… to your Valentine or to your very sweet self!

Akoyas are All the Rage

From the front row at Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2019 runway show to the Golden Globe and SAG Awards red carpet arrivals, the perfectly white Akoya pearl is demanding attention, making a cool comeback to the forefront of fashion. With their timeless appeal, they also make the perfect gift. They can be worn for many years to come to accessorize a wide variety of outfits.  Designer denim goes great with Akoya pearls for all those ‘casual chic’ dress codes, and simple studs serve everything from turtle neck sweaters to blazers and little black dresses. For your regal sweetheart, opt for a multi-strand. For the edgier types, choose a single opera length strand or perhaps the cool, sleek choker.

For the Tahitian Pearl Addict

There is something exotic and alluring about the darker side of pearls, and some of us cannot get enough! The silvery gray to deep dark eggplant colors of Tahitian pearls add an element of mystery and intrigue to even the most basic fashion ensemble. If your sweetheart loves Tahitians like we do, add to her assortment with a unique new ring or pair of earrings. They will match perfectly with her favorite Tahitian strand. Or get her started on her very own collection of Tahitian pearls with Assael’s innovative designs. The newest styles incorporate the feminine gemstone Morganite to highlight the natural aubergine hues in the pearls themselves. The perfect pair – just like you and your sweetheart.

For the Demure or the Minimalist

For the dainty, the demure or the minimalist, a pearl pendant might be the way to go. Some ladies like an uncluttered neckline and a singular spectacular pearl can draw attention up to her radiant face.  Make it twice as nice by gifting her a set with matching earrings. Floating bubbles at the lobe are also a great option for ladies with small ears or for those who may not have ever pierced their ears. We also love the look of pristine white pearls floating on the hand in the new Bubble rings by Sean Gilson for Assael. And if she has blue eyes, you can’t go wrong with aquamarine and pearl studs – simple, chic, classic.

For the Bold Beauty Who Loves Bright Red Lips or Basic Blacks

NATURAL SARDINIAN CORAL BUBBLE RING, FIRE ON ICE
Clockwise L to R – Floral Dress and all red ensemble from Giorgio Armani Prive SS ’19, Second Fashion, Classic Ruby Red lips, Assael Natural Sardinian Coral Fire and Ice Diamond EarringsAssael Natural Sardinian Coral Bubble Ring

If your Valentine is not a pearl girl, or you have your heart set on giving her something RED, consider the crimson delight of natural Sardinian coral.  All of Assael’s coral is responsibly sourced and perfectly matched in hue.  These gems pair perfectly with bright red lipstick or all black ensembles. They also showcase everlasting love and devotion.
