Pearl earrings, one of the most beautiful and precious gems, never go out of style. Pearl earrings look even more stunning when paired with the right necklaces and bracelets. Pearls come in various shapes, but the common ones include the round, semi-round, button, and pear earrings. Slightly flattened button pearls are the kinds that are frequently stringed into a pair of pearl earrings. Pear earrings, which are sometimes known as teardrop pearls, also make nice ear ornaments.
A nice thing about pearl earrings too, is that they mix well with other types of gemstones like gold and diamond. For a new feel of pearl earrings, there are also the dangling earrings, the clustered earrings, but as they say, nothing beats the original- the classic white pearl earrings.
Pearls symbolize a lot of things: love, luck, happiness, and success. Pearl earrings began from the early Chinese myths that talked about pearls falling from the sky. The pearls were believed to be tears of the gods, which is probably why they are now considered wedding gifts in most countries. Pearl earrings are also standard accessories of brides during weddings because they promote marital bliss. Freshwater pearls are the gemstones for the first year of marriage. These earrings can also be used to celebrate the 3rd, 12th and 30th year of marriage.
Pearl earrings are not just for married women and bride-to-be?s though. Pearls with a hint of color like pink, or even brown and black are used by younger women, while the typical white or off-white are for the more mature women. What?s great about these earrings is that they are fitting for women of all ages.
