4 Things Every Woman should have in her Closet


What every woman should have in her wardrobe? A flattering pair of jeans, a white silk shirt, and a casual blazer. Why? They all look good together, so they are a safe bet on days when you simply can't decide what to wear. They also make a great canvas for other, more daring clothes. How to accessorize them? With pearls, naturally!

We particularly love the black & white color combination in pearl necklaces, which gives them a modern tough-luxe feel. This juxtaposition of contrasting tones has lately become very popular on fashion runways. The necklace shape of a casually tied chain is very versatile and works well with unbuttoned shirts or v-neck necklines that are flattering to all of us. Our version of the necklace costs only $73 and its intricate silver chain beautifully complements the two 8.5 mm drop pearls.

Remember, looking stylish doesn't require spending your entire salary on your clothes! To prove it to you, we created two versions of the same outfit. The less expensive version that includes our Yan & Ying pearl necklace costs only a fraction of the high fashion pieces, but the look is almost the same!

CPAA Pearl Competition Winners 2012

“Medusa Earrings” by Katey Brunini
(Wedding Day Pearls 1st winner)
Cultured Pearl Association of America has recently announced the winners of the 2012-2013 International Design Competition. We were so excited to see the winning designs!

The second one, Jorge Adeler's “Ying – Yang”, has an amazing organic nautilus-like symmetry that captivated our attention from the very first sight.

Bridal Pearls

With raspberry-scented and sun-kissed June came the long-awaited wedding season. One of our friends and long-time supporters said “I do” to her fiancé last weekend. What a party it was!

The beautiful bride chose a layered strapless wedding gown that enhanced her lovely feminine curves and wore a veil with lace details that accentuated her smooth low-set chignon. Naturally, she picked pearls to complement her classy look! They were not any pearls, but our simple yet feminine Ariel pearl earrings. The two white pearl droplets were playfully dancing with every move of the bride and the long chains on which the pearls had been set were sending sparkles as gleaming as her smile. 

Beautiful smile of a beautiful pearl-adorned bride!

We were truly honored to be chosen to fulfill the bride’s dream of a perfect wedding look, and we hope to make more as happy as she in the future!

Congratulations to newlyweds Laurence and Nicolas!

When to Wear Your Pearls

Nice hairstyle will emphasize
the classiness of your pearls!
So you have a few gorgeous pieces of pearl jewelry and now you want to know when to wear them. Here are a few useful tips to help you decide which occasions are right for which jewels.

First, let's take a quick look at your simple pearl necklace with a single pearl. It is ideal for a day at work when you want to look smart and sophisticated, as they provide just the right amount of glamour while not seeming too over-the-top. Team it with a plain yet sophisticated outfit and you will have the perfect work look!

For a lunch with friends, you can let yourself be a little bit more glamorous. Add some pearl earrings that match your necklace and you will look and feel ready for a relaxed and fun social occasion! If you team these with a glamorous make-over from a salon like RushHair.co.uk, you will have a varied, classy look that says you are ready to enjoy yourself.

For a posh dinner in the evening, you could perhaps add a pearl bracelet to this ensemble, which will make your appearance really sparkle. One of the many great things about pearls is their inherent ability to add a touch of class to any look, while never looking too imposing.

Pearls go with pretty much anything, and they come in a wonderful variety of colours. You are most likely to see the classic white ones, however there are also many other varieties. One such alternative is the black pearl, which is extremely elegant and understated. The pink variety have a wonderful, dainty appearance, and they add even more of a feminine aspect to the wearer. So pick your favourite pearls and wear them as often as possible. And have a look at the rest of this site if you want to boost your collection and get some ideas how to wear pearls!

Baby Shower Pearls

Last summer we received a wonderful custom pearl jewelry set request that we have been dying to share with you. A client from the US requested a pair of earrings and a matching pearl pendant be made for a very special occasion. The set consisted of gorgeous metallic copper pink oval pearls adorned with diamond-like sparkles. The earrings were made of 7-7.5mm pearls and the pendant measured 9.5-10mm in its shorter side.

It was a very special order as our customer just learned that she was expecting her first child!
We were really honored and happy to make this exceptional set for her. We even got a photo of her sporting our jewels during a walk on a sunny Sunday. 


Isn't she lovely?

Now we have just learned that her baby boy was born two weeks ago and he is already a real charmer! Congratulations to happy parents :-)

Trend Focus: Pearls and Pastels

Sugary pastels are one of the most prominent fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2012. After few seasons of bold, in-your-face shades, we are going back to the feminine feel of soft colors.

Don’t get me wrong, daring colors are still very much in, but now we have a choice between a fashion statement of neon pinks and femininity declaration of pale corals.

How to pick the right jewelry for the pastel trend to avoid a sugar overdose? You can pair light-colored clothes with statement necklaces, such as Katia pearl collar, or with chunky bracelets, just like the pearl and amethyst bracelet Kim. Supersized jewels will sharpen the overall soft look. As for the colors, gold-plated metals are great, and so are black and white pearls.

Pearl Giveaway with Roni

Yesterday I did a quick run through the usual clothing chain stores to see what’s there for the next season. Although we are still in the middle of winter, the shelves were already filled with spring frocks, bursting in colors! Hot pinks, tangerines, electric blues, you name it! Then I saw them. I saw many girls browsing through the racks, but very few daring to try anything on. After all, who in their sanity of mind would remove her layers of clothes just to try a top that she would only be able to wear in 3 months? Aha!

Then I noticed crowds of girls circulating in the accessories section. I understood. Cute earrings, chunky rings, pretty necklaces, they give us the warm feeling of getting ready for the spring without too much guilt involved. Snatching a nice jewel for the newest collection gets us our return on investment from day one as we can wear our new breathtaking necklace on the very same day!

The Lacrima Bianca pearl lariat has this versatility. Very simple in design, you can wear it with an office shirt tomorrow or with a pretty feminine dress in few months (check out our styling propositions below). Right now, it has an additional advantage: you can win it in a giveaway! We have teamed up with Roni from Beads by Roni, an incorrigible bead lover, to offer you a chance to win your new pre-spring accessory. The Giveaway details and entry forms are posted on Roni's blog.

Good luck! :o)

Engagement Pearls

Who said diamonds are the only jewels suited to a wedding proposal? Few months ago, we have learned that a beautiful set of pearl jewels from Love My Pearls is a very romantic alternative to a classic round-shaped diamond!

One of our customers based in Hong Kong called in some time ago and requested a secret order for his girlfriend. Secret, as his soon-to-be fiancée is one of our long-time clients, and she wasn’t supposed to know that a purchase was being made for her.

They were engaged one month later!

The proposal was very romantic and hit all the right notes. On a warm summer evening, he arranged a special evening at home, sprinkling rose petals all over their terrace, lighting a dozen of candles, and decorating a table for two with a bottle of champagne. Everything was there: a couple in love, a beautiful evening, and a gorgeous set of black pearls… She said yes, of course! ♡

Congratulations to Celine and Franck who got married this weekend! We are truly touched you picked us to be the messenger of your love…
