Other than diamonds, pearls are the most popular gem for wedding day jewelry. Not only are pearls beautiful and one of a kind, they have also long symbolized qualities that embody a woman on her wedding day. Since they have been used in fine jewelry for thousands of years, pearls have come to symbolically represent virtue, purity and beauty. They are also often used as a representation for faith since the Bible refers to religion as a pearl. For these reasons, choosing a gorgeous piece of pearl jewelry is perfectly befitting a bride.
Since most brides are already wearing their engagement ring on their wedding day (and will soon also be wearing a wedding band), additional ring jewelry is not commonly worn as a bridal accessory. Although this convention has been challenged with the adorable trend of bridal cocktail rings, pearl necklaces, bracelets and earrings are still far more common bridal accessories than pearl rings. We love the look of wedding day pearls and want to highlight some of our favorite options for pearl bridal jewelry. This week we’re focusing on the timeless pearl earring, which we think perfectly frames the face of a glowing bride.
Tahitian Pearl & Diamond Opera Dangle Earrings
When it comes to pearls, a Tahitian black pearl is the rarest and most coveted. For women infusing their wedding with vintage glamour, this pair of opera dangle earrings is sheer perfection. Just make sure to pair them with very simple additional accessories to let them take center stage and shine.
10 mm White Pearl and Diamond Drop Earrings
These pearl and diamond drop earrings (pictured at top) are the ultimate classic. They could have been worn in the 1940s or 50s and have looked just as stunning and apropos as they would on today’s modern bride. Even better, they are the kind of earring that can be dressed up or down and taken just about anywhere. When making a jewelry investment, wearability is a key influencer in the item’s worth; precisely why this gorgeous pair of earrings is worth every cent.
Golden Pearl and Sapphire Earrings
Two golden South Sea pearls dangle alluringly from a clean row of amber colored sapphires in this lovely pair of earrings. Though this is the same design as the earrings above, they make an entirely different statement in the warm hue. The amber sapphires and golden pearls make these earrings an ideal choice for a cozy autumn wedding.
South Sea Pearl Diamond Pave Stud Earrings
These stunning little studs are perfectly ladylike. They would be absolutely lovely paired with a bateau neckline wedding gown or other high-neck creation, or worn as a set with a pretty white pearl necklace. Like the white pearl and diamond drop earrings, this is one piece of jewelry that can be worn with anything and will stand the test of time.
