Pearls are back with a bang! The classic pearl’s modern makeover is complete with its transition from a traditional heirloom, to the modern working girl’s staple accessory. From classy to cool, then sexy to sassy, these elegant delights have seen timeless success, and have now crossed over the bridge from being reserved for the ballroom to becoming a part of the perfect beach outfit too. It is no longer just a jewel for your mother’s boudoir, but a gender-neutral statement, that is both, funky, cool and classy, the perfect candidate for the millennial’s signature accessory.
While pearls have been a quintessential part of every woman’s jewellery trousseau, it has undergone constant evolution. Popularised in India by the icon herself, Maharani Gayatri Devi, marrying her famous sarees with the ever-so-perfect pearls, the pearly baton in the West was carried by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Kate Winslet recently, Michelle Obama.
As the times have been a-changing, so has the pearl. With its incorporation in hair accessories, like clips and hairbands, as embellishments on clothing and footwear, there is no end to the creativity that pearls have inspired in contemporary times.
