Handmade pearl necklaces—handcrafted by independent jewellery designers using ethically-sourced pearls

Pearl necklaces feature pearls as their primary decorative element. Pearls are formed inside oysters or other mollusks when an irritant, such as a piece of sand or shell, becomes trapped inside the shell. The mollusk then secretes a substance called nacre, which coats the irritant and forms a pearl.

Pearls have been used in jewellery for thousands of years and have long been associated with beauty, elegance, and wealth. Pearl necklaces can come in a variety of styles, lengths, and pearl colours. Some necklaces feature a single strand of pearls, while others may have multiple strands or be arranged in a specific pattern. The colour of pearls can range from white to black, and can also include pink, lavender, and other shades.

Pearl necklaces are often given as gifts for special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and graduations. They are also commonly worn by brides and bridesmaids on their wedding day. Proper care and maintenance of a pearl necklace is important to ensure its longevity and beauty. Pearls should be stored in a soft pouch or cloth to prevent scratches, and should not be exposed to chemicals or extreme temperatures.

Caring for pearl necklaces

Pearls are delicate gemstones that require proper care and maintenance to preserve their lustre and beauty. By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your pearl necklace remains beautiful and radiant for years to come.

Avoid exposing pearls to harsh chemicals and substances such as perfume, hairspray, and makeup. These substances can damage the pearls and cause them to lose their lustre.

Keep your pearl necklace away from water. Remove your pearl necklace before engaging in activities such as swimming, exercising, or showering. Water can damage the pearls and cause them to become discoloured or lose their shape.

Clean your pearl necklace gently with a soft, damp cloth after each use. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or rough materials that can scratch the pearls.

Store your pearl necklace separately from other jewellery items to prevent scratching. Pearls are soft gemstones and so require special care. Use a soft pouch or cloth to protect the pearls from dust and other debris.

Have your pearl strand necklace restrung periodically by a professional jeweller. The silk or nylon thread used to string pearls can weaken over time, and regular restringing can help prevent breakage.

Pearl necklaces for brides

Pearl necklaces are a popular, classic, and elegant accessory that can add a touch of sophistication to a bride's wedding day look. Here are some things to consider when choosing a pearl necklace for your wedding day:

The style of the dress: The style and neckline of the bride's dress can play a role in determining what type of pearl necklace would complement the look best. For example, a simple and elegant strand of pearls would pair well with a strapless or sweetheart neckline, while a more ornate necklace with multiple strands or a pendant might look best with a v-neck or scoop neckline.

The type of pearls: There are several types of pearls to choose from, including freshwater, Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea pearls. Each type has its unique characteristics and price points, so it's essential to consider what the bride's preferences and budget are.

Pearl necklace length: Pearl necklaces come in different lengths, ranging from chokers to longer opera-length necklaces. A choker or collar-length necklace can look great with a high neckline or a simple, modern dress, while a longer necklace can be a beautiful complement to a more traditional or formal gown.

Other accessories: It's essential to consider other accessories the bride will be wearing, such as earrings, bracelets, or hairpieces, when selecting a pearl necklace. If you're wearing statement earrings, for example, it may be best to opt for a more understated necklace.
