June is for Pearls

This goes way beyond the simple pearl necklace, Michael Schofield pearl and diamond necklace

June’s birthstone is the pearl. This is great for me since I was born in June and I love pearls. The interesting thing about pearls, other than how they are made, you grow them in an oyster. Talk about a sustainable product. The pearl has become much more laidback, less stogie, not so much the territory of the 1950s housewife. Back in the day every woman had a simple pearl necklace, it was the standard.


Carry them on a clutch
While the simple pearl necklace may still be popular, the way that it is worn is what has changed. You no longer have to wear pearls with a cardigan and a floral dress. It isn’t saved for those overly saccharine sweet good girl looks. Now pearls can be worn with leather, jeans and a t-shirt. The delicate beauty of a pearl is the perfect juxtaposition against tough or rough.

Another interesting aspect of pearls is how they are being used. While the simple necklace is still in fashion, pearls are popping up everywhere. They adorn clutches and evening bags, sandals and even sunglasses. You can add a pop of pearl just about anywhere. It’s a simple fashion statement that allows you to add a bit of femininity without looking too sweet.

Now I’m not saying that you shouldn’t wear pearls with the ubiquitous cardigan sweater and dress set, I’m just saying that pearls have gone mainstream. Designers are using them in unexpected ways and that’s a good thing. So even if you weren’t born in June, give some pearls a try, they can brighten any outfit and add a bit of class to your leather moto jacket.
