Today, let's talk about girl's favourite gems. We shall not discuss diamonds, we know way too much about diamonds plus don't you think it's way over-rated by now? Let's talk about the other classic favourite - Pearls.
Does the first impression of pearls make you feel like Aunt Mae in her best Sunday dress having brunch? Or do you deck yourself out in pearls to impress your future parents in law?
Well, my dear people, pearls are timeless beauties and not at all old-fashioned as thought by many. To me, pearls are very Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Audrey Hepburn, has immortalized the pearl necklace
as a symbol of elegance in her iconic picture. Pearls symbolize the epitome of womanhood. Pearl has a beautiful sense of purity and perfection. On the other hand, it has a very lingering sexy appeal too. Pearls also bring an air of elegance and affluence.
My favourite pearl accessories would be a pearl necklace
. There is absolutely no reason to not love them. You can wear your pearl necklace in 1 strand, 2 strands or even 3 strands of pearls. A single strand of pearl exudes elegant simplicity and 3 strands of pearls finishes off a very polished and sophisticated look. It helps to show off your very sexy neckline especially when you spot a lose up-do and wear a beautiful cocktail dress. Today's famous celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Michelle Geller, Sarah Jessica Parker, supermodel Kate Moss are one of the many celebrities who are embracing the love of pearls
Apart from that, you can also try something different like a black pearl necklace
. You can rock the pearls like how Keira Knightley jazzed up her look. She has included black pearls into her white pearls necklace for a nice twist. It has a very funky and totally chic look. I think Keira looks radiant in this simple ensemble. Black pearls are also one of my favourite pearls. They have a beautiful sheen and color that I totally adore.
Then there is also the widely popular Akoya Pearl Necklace
. These are 100% genuine pearls from Japan and are handpicked and handknotted to add to the delicate intricacy to the pearl necklaces. Such precision makes these necklaces a popular choice of pearls.
A story about pearls would not be complete without mentioning Madam Coco Chanel. Fashion maven Madam Coco Chanel has a favourite cusp made from 105 Akoya Pearls interwoven with diamonds and gold designed by the House of Chanel, of course. Madam Coco Chanel has a love affair with pearls and she is always seen photographed with pearls, making pearls a fashion statement since the early 1920s. Madam Coco Chanel has paved such a blazing trail for pearls in high fashion, which is much loved till today by women all over. Nobody quite wears pearls with such aplomb like Madam Coco Chanel illustrated in her picture here.

Meanwhile, I'm sipping vintage red wine, pearls adorning my neck, with Prince's song 'Diamond and Pearls' playing softly in the background. Pearls never go out of fashion
