But first, let us start from the beginning. Audrey Hepburn made pearls classic while Carrie Bradshaw made it chic! Right from our minimalism loving grand mas, Sabysachi cladding his muses in layers & layers of pearl strings, we sure love ’em all & here is why…

 

First of all coz Coco says so!
Chanel, one of the biggest & oldest names in the fashion industry have been obsessed with pearls. Coco Chanel believed that ‘a woman should have ropes & ropes of pearls’ & who are we to disagree with the legendary Chanel?

Chanel as a brand has experimented & innovated with pearls in every way possible, paving the way for so many brands, fashionistas & brides.

Pearls, as we see it, are quite underrated & an unpopular choice in jewellery when it comes to our weddings, mostly restricted to the grannies & door ke rishtedaar! Whereas pearl jewellery is one of the most versatile & economical we’ve come across.

For instance, the pearl necklaces below are perfect for bridesmaids & even younger girls who love wearing jewellery!

Big wedding jewellery is not everyone’s cup of tea. A lot of women like to keep it light, simple yet effective. Pearl jewellery provides that exact balance to the jewellery loving, easy-going woman.

One can even fuse them with polki, diamonds & gold jewellery to create a unique design & style statement!
