PEARLS: ON TREND & TIMELESS
Grown in a freshwater pearl mussel, pearls are created by layers upon layers of nacre forming around an intruding irritant in the mollusk. Nacre is an organic substance, over time the nacre builds over the irritant and a pearl is formed. It's these layers which gives the iridescent effect and revered beauty of pearls. Each pearl is one-of-a-kind and can take up to four years to produce.
When it comes to styling, we invite the gal who always has her finger on the pulse with the latest and greatest to layer on the pearl bracelets and earrings to create a effortlessly chic look.

The lesson here: Even if you once thought that pearls aren’t for you, this collection proves that there’s a perfect piece out there for everyone (and we really do mean everyone).
Bonus: Pearls count as a neutral, but due to their natural iridescence adding a subtle pop of shine and colour, you can have the best of both worlds and wear them with almost every colour. A pair of pearl earrings that doubles as both an easy neutral and a sophisticated flash of bright hues? Count us in.
