Versatile Pearl Earrings

Pearl earrings don't have to be white and they definitely don't have to come in the form of a classic (and, for many of us, slightly boring) spherical studs. Our newest addition to the loving pearl earrings' family is all about the Dark Side of Pearls. Single black pearl is adorned with a sparkle-studded earring that has been made of black, oxidized silver.

Although far from classic, these earrings are still very versatile and go well with relaxed and more polished, office looks, which makes them a great addition to this Fall's accessory list.

La Lollo's Pearls for Stem Cell Research

Gina Lollobrigida auctioned her magnificent jewelry collection to raise money for stem cell research. Once considered an iconic sex symbol and "the most beautiful woman in the world", she donated the nearly US$ 5 million from the sale to support the research.

"I bought this jewelry to make a gift to myself for my very successful career. These jewels made me feel independent. Now I have another desire, a bigger one. This jewelry will help a lot of children to have a normal life.” said Lollobrigida in the interview posted on Sotheby’s website.
