The Pearl Choker - This Summer's Hottest Trend
As you’ve probably spotted by now, wearing pearls has become summer’s hottest jewellery trend. Not your grandmother’s pearls though; there’s a new breed in town, which goes by the name: The Pearl Choker.
Short, dainty and endlessly versatile, our pearl choker necklace turns tradition into a modern must-have. It’s perfect for softening up your suits and tailored looks, and essential for elevating your everyday jeans and t-shirt vibe. Not to mention, this beauty can be worn at different lengths, from choker style to a short pearl necklace.
These little ovals of perfection are interspersed by polished metal nuggets in either yellow gold, rose gold or silver. They take a comfy seat on your neckline and feel super soft against your skin. Layered or worn alone, the pearl choker is a stand-out style this summer, and for years to come.
Get to know the Pearl
Pearls are the only gems made by a living organism. This means that every pearl is different, and will vary in lustre, colour, size, and shape. They are formed when a piece of shell meets an oyster’s soft inner body, causing it to exude a crystalline substance called nacre. One of nature’s greatest wonders, pearls have long been associated with royalty, nobility, and a source of wealth. Legend has it, Cleopatra crushed a pearl into a glass of wine to prove to her love affair that she could give the most expensive dinner in history.
