Pearls are a beautiful and versatile classic of women’s jewelry that can make you look and feel more sophisticated, confident and beautiful. Pearl necklaces aren’t just something worn by older women — women of all ages can look splendid in beautifully designed contemporary pieces. Pearl necklaces can include choker-, lariat- and rope-style necklaces. Pearls are formed when something gets trapped inside the shell of an oyster, which then covers the irritant with an excretion that hardens over time into the material that gives a pearl it’s distinct appearance and texture. Both natural and cultured pearls are formed through this process.
- Pearl necklaces are breathtaking. From time immemorial, they have been a well known choice by women.
- Pearls can be natural or cultured. Natural pearls are formed from irritants in the mollusk pearl while cultured pearls are formed when a bead is inserted into it.
- Two classic and elegant designs in pearl necklaces are the choker style pearl necklace and the matinee style pearl necklace.
“Cultured pearls are in no way inferior to natural pearls and they can be found in various shapes, sizes and colors.”
