WHEN you think of pearls, you may be mistaken in thinking that they are all really expensive and possibly unachievable on your budget.
This could be the case if you are after some natural pearls as these beauties are extremely rare and hard to come across so quite rightly, they come with a hefty price tag. Cultured pearls, however, are much more affordable because they are grown under controlled conditions and a lot easier to access.
There are so many different options when it comes to pearl jewellery- necklaces or rows of pearls, bracelets and earrings that are simple pearls ranging to elaborate designs that incorporate pearls. There is definitely something for everyone’s tastes.
A way of incorporating pearls into your daily jewellery pieces but without spending hundreds of pounds is by owning a piece like this beautiful freshwater pearl bracelet from Highland Angel. Completely personal to you, this bracelet comes in different colours and enables you to have your own initials or perhaps initials of your loved ones. A perfect way to add something a little different to your jewellery collection.
If you don’t like the idea of the traditional row of pearls in the form of a bracelet, then perhaps you want something a little more contemporary with this freshwater pearl bracelet from Ernest Jones. Combining a triple net bracelet scattered with stunning freshwater pearls and sterling silver accents, this bracelet is a timeless design.
Rather than a simple pair of pearl studs, why not switch things up a little and choose some pearl drop earrings such as this pair from Jacqueline Shaw. With two pearls in a graduated drop, the top pearl is a traditional spherical shape but the lower pearl is a beautiful heart design which really gives these earrings a little more character.
If you’re looking for a contemporary piece that doesn’t cost the earth, this triple heart pendant by Jersey Pearl is a great option, and is available from Silver Tree. Three sterling silver hearts surround a stunning freshwater pearl to create this elegant piece designed by Kimberley Selwood for the Aphrodite Collection.
