I recently wrote about sea-inspired accessories - and pearls are hotter than ever right now!
Generally viewed as an accessory for the conservative, pearls have been updated and given a fresher, more hip look in recent years. A groundbreaking alternative to the traditional strand of pearls appeared in the 1990s, with pearls spaced several inches apart on a delicate gold chain. Rene Russo sparked the trend’s popularity by wearing it in the films Tin Cup and Ransom.
What’s hot in pearls today? Stacked, thick strands of pearls, layered and bold. Think Katherine Heigl at the premiere of her movie, The Ugly Truth (at above left) or Michelle Obama (right), in a Tom Binns pearl necklace.
If you like the staggered separated take on the traditional strand of pearls, try the Tin Cup Pearl Necklace, which is still available for only $79. Get the look of Katherine Heigl and Michelle Obama with Holsted Jewelers’ Allure Genuine Freshwater and Shell Pearl Earrings, Necklace and Bracelet Set - $138 for the entire set. Or pick up a few of the necklaces themselves and layer them.
