In the past, harvesting pearls was only possible in the wild. This is because thousands upon thousands of oysters would need to be caught and opened just to source a few of these gems. As a result, centuries of pearl rushes and over-exploitation put a massive strain on this natural resource. However, with the invention and rise in popularity of cultivated pearl farming over the 20th century, this widespread large-scale fishing for oysters was finally put to an end.
This season’s runways were absolutely crawling with exciting pearl jewelry of all kinds. From Chanel to Loewe, the crème de la crème of the fashion world are showcasing risk-taking pearl pieces. Think necks dripping in pearls, pendants and bronzed chains or quirky charm bracelets and even hair accessories. We’ve taken a look at all of the trending favourites and here are the ones we’re loving the most!
Time flies incredibly fast! It seems like it was just yesterday when we had our Grand Opening party and welcomed our first customers. Now, 3 years later, we look back proudly with gratitude and joy!
