Glamourize with Pearls and Metallics

  • Mar 24, 2010

You can look like a total diva for a night out if you add an overstated pearl necklace - to a little black dress. Or, if you’re not the dress type, you can wear your best black or acid wash jeans -, a loose fitting tee, and fierce mid-calf boots with your strands of pearls. Don’t be afraid to sport metallics; just make sure the fit is superb or you will be highlighting all your problem areas! Work those cage sandals and booties

Mixing tough garments with sweet and sassy accessories or vice versa creates a juxtaposition of elements that is at the height of chic right now, so mix and match your trends and you’ll be turning heads in no time!

I love pearls! My favorite thing to do is to wear strands of them wrapped around my neck in a messy and tangled way; it makes them look so hardcore!

About this website


A pearl is a hard, generally spherical object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a mollusk, a pearl is made up of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes of pearls (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word pearl has become a metaphor  for something very rare, fine, admirable, and valuable.

Valuable pearls occur in the wild, but they are very rare. Cultured or farmed pearls from pearl oysters make up the majority of those that are currently sold. Pearls from the sea are valued more highly than freshwater pearls. Imitation or fake pearls are also widely sold in inexpensive jewelry, but the quality of their iridescence is usually very poor - and generally speaking, artificial pearls are easily distinguished from genuine pearls. Pearls have been harvested and cultivated primarily for use in jewelry, but in the past they were also stitched onto lavish clothing. Pearls have also been crushed and used in cosmetics, medicines, or in paint formulations.

Pearls that are considered to be of gemstone quality are almost always nacreous and iridescent, like the interior of the shell that produces them. However, almost all species of shelled mollusks are capable of ...
