The Roaring 20's. Part Two.
Consistently dominating jewelry trends for 100 years, pearls keep showing up on the runway, and this year is no exception. The long, layered look is ruling over fashion shows as we celebrate the centennial of one of the most glamorous periods in modern history.
How to Layer Your Pearls:
Mix Shapes. The largest pearls seen here are Baroque Tahitian pearls. Tahitian pearls grow in oversized oysters found primarily around Tahiti and French Polynesia. Baroque pearls are not perfectly round and form in sometimes elaborate organic shapes. Each Baroque pearl is one of a kind.
Mix Sizes. Layer longer, medium, and short strands to create depth and balance. The smaller, round pearls seen here are Akoya Pearls. Akoya pearls are cultured in Japan by generations of specialists who have been perfecting this process for 100 years. Adding these pearls to the mix creates a modern, sophisticated look.
Mix Textures. Adding non-pearls to the mix creates interest and versatility. This draws your eye around the ensemble, facilitating movement-- and also allows for some of your favorite and heirloom pieces to play together as you build unique combinations to dress up or down. Here, we mixed yellow gold, patina sterling silver, crownwork, and lacework over a pearl palette.
