Historically, pearls were rarer and more expensive than diamonds- just look at any art from the Renaissance or the Dutch Golden Age. All the royals and aristocrats were dripping with pearls as a symbol of their power, wealth and privilege. This period pre-dated the evolution of the culturing process, so the only pearls available were natural. Truly rare indeed.
Pearls continue to be a gift from nature, and their soft iridescent lustre gives an appealing glow to all complexions.
We are now spoilt for choice by advances in the culturing process which produce exceptional quality salt water and fresh water pearls with clean skins, luminous lustre and lovely shape. Jewellery which embraces pearls in fresh and contemporary ways keeps them relevant and desirable.
These tear drop pearl and diamond earrings add classic style to any outfit with ease. The gem quality cultured river pearl tear drops possess a fine iridescent lustre, and the earrings feature round brilliant diamonds set in 18ct white gold suspended from shepherd’s hooks. They look particularly beautiful if you wear your hair up. If you have multiple piercings, they can be paired with a variety of secondary earrings to give your look a little edge. You may wish to consider small diamond bar earrings, or medium diamond hoop earrings. Increase the fun factor by wearing a kiss and hug in each ear, or a pair of pavé diamond lip studs. The list is endless.
For a contemporary interpretation of pearl earrings, our White Gold c-shaped Pearl Earrings might be of interest.
Available to order with other pearl types, colours and shapes.
