5 Tips for Picking the Right Pearls for You

Looking fashionable and sophisticated is so easy when you have a collection of pearls that are chosen just for you. After all, there are different types of pearls to suit almost any age and style. Here are our top 5 tips for picking the simple, yet elegant, pearls to suit your office, every day and even formal wear.

 

  1. Consider Your Skin Tone

As with most fashion choices, your skin tone is a big factor in deciding which types of pearls to wear. Pale skin usually pairs the best with rosier pearls and darker or olive skin tones tend to look better with cream or golden pearls. Best of all, pure white or even black pearls look great on everyone!  

 

  1. Choose the Right Size

You also need to consider your body type before choosing certain types of pearl jewelry. For example, a tall frame can perfectly display a choker style necklace with small, equal-sized pearls. However, a fuller frame may want to move away from smaller pearls and go for bolder, larger ones.

 

  1. Complement Your Lifestyle

Sometimes the types of pearls you buy should also be versatile enough to fit in with the many aspects of your lifestyle. If you wear casual, work, formal and active attire throughout the year, then choose your pearls to suit these many different types of activities and occasions, not just one.

  1. Match Your Wardrobe

If your job requires formal attire, such as suits, jackets, trousers and formal shoes, then your best option is a single strand pearl necklace with a shorter length. For everyday wear, a two-strand pearl necklace is great with jeans and flats, as well as midi dresses paired with leather jackets or cardigans.

 

  1. Be True To Yourself

While there is a lot of advice available about what to wear for your complexion or body type or wardrobe, the most important thing is to stay true to your own sense of style when buying pearls. If you feel that you prefer combinations and layers, rather than traditional sets, follow your heart!
