Romantic at Heart

This year's femininity has been described with romantic vocabulary. Soft and flowing dresses, ruffled tops, bows, flowery head pieces, sheer, vanilla-coloured fabrics, and lace are the prelude to the soft side of fashion, richly romantic but also subtly sexy.

Pearls seem like the perfect finishing to the style. Bundle a 
larger pearl pendant with other charms on a longer chain or go for vintage-inspired earrings, to avoid overdoing it. Here's how to carry the trend adorned with romantic jewelry without looking like you stepped out of a Harlequin romance novel:

Blushing pendants

The prevailing trend for this summer is peachy, blushing, and fresh as a morning dew. Many women really enjoy this trend, it gives them the liberty to envelop themselves in flowing fabrics, indulge in soft colours, and let their inner feminine glow shine though their translucent make-ups.

Pearls in Art

This beautiful painting by William McGregor Paxton (1869-1941) entitled "The string of pearls" was created in 1908. It is owned by a private collector.

I really like the way she looks at her necklace. I guess we can all relate to her admiration for the beauty of pearls!

Summer of Keshis

Looking for something different?
Try keshi pearls, famous for their petal-like shapes. Made of pure nacre, keshis shimmer and sparkle like no other pearls.
Get a necklace and wear it as is or as a double bracelet. It's a great alternative to a classic white strand. Elegance and great value in one shimmering package!
