White pearl and gold earrings are an indispensable part of any jewel box. Worn to dinner, the office or on holiday- they are at home everywhere. These are a contemporary take on a simple pearl stud earring.
Pearls are a gift from nature, and their soft iridescent lustre gives an appealing glow to all complexions. Historically, they were rarer and more expensive than diamonds- just look at any art from the Renaissance or the Dutch Golden Age. All the royals and aristocrats were dripping with pearls as a symbol of their power, wealth and privilege. This period pre-dated the evolution of the culturing process, so the only pearls available were natural. Truly rare indeed.
We are now spoilt for choice by advances in the culturing process which produce exceptional quality salt water and fresh water pearls with clean skins, luminous lustre and lovely shape. Jewellery which embraces pearls in fresh and contemporary ways keeps them relevant and desirable.
These earrings feature two cultured river pearls- the smaller one set on a post which nestles in the lobe, and a second, larger pearl is suspended just below it. Seemingly floating below the lobe.
Alternatively, the single sliding pearl pendant is the simple, chic and modern.
