Is there anything more universally flattering than pearl jewelry? The moment you put it on, it’s like you’re transported into this beautiful universe where everyone wears white gloves and holds doors for each other. Basically, exactly the universe I would choose to live in (as long as I could bring the internet with me).
In college, I wore pearls every day (yup, that girl? that was me.). I wore them to the gym (a jeweler told me that the more you wear them, the more lusterous the pearls become, and I used that as an excuse to never take them off, ever). And it was true — my pearls were incredibly beautiful after a few years (although they did have to be restrung several times).
I still love the simplicity of a simple strand of pearls, but these days, I want my jewelry to have a little more glamour to it. Not just one pearl bracelet, but multiple strands and different sizes. Add some layers and ties and the prettiest jeweled clasps? That’s how you take a beautiful classic and make them completely modern and fresh.
BHLDN has the most beautiful bridal jewelry, and I could absolutely see this bracelet and earrings on a bride for her big day. But you know where else I can see them? On me, at the grocery store. Out for coffee. Dressed up for a special weekend dinner. Because you know what style I reach for over and over? My classic, elegant pearls.
