A strand of pearls has always been a classical and elegant choice for any woman, with most of these pearls being white or slightly off-white in color, or perhaps lightly tinted with pink or even orange. But have you considered wearing black pearls? While most women consider pearls to be available in only white and off-white shades, and thus perfect for pairing with light-colored attire, a strand of black pearls or even large black pearl earrings can make for quite a beautiful contrast. Black pearl jewelry is quickly becoming in vogue, and it’s easy to see why. Whether you’re dressing up for a night on the town or dressing down for a day at the office, adding some black pearls to your typical wardrobe can make for a striking effect.
When shopping for black pearls at an online shop (find out more about National Pearl and other shops), know that you should first consider what type of black pearl you like best. Like their white counterparts, black pearls are available from many parts of the world, and have a different sheen to them — some have a green sheen, while others may have undertones that are more blue or silver — depending on what part of the world they originate from. Pick what you love, and then move on to the available selection of jewelry for that particular style of pearl. Just know that you can’t go wrong with your choices. But if your budget only leaves room for one item, go with the classic pearl necklace. You can always pair other types of silver or gold jewelry to go with the necklace, but a pearl necklace will always stand out and make for quite the lasting impression on others.
If you want to wear black pearls, but you’re not sure here, consider black on black, which can never be out of fashion. Pair your favorite black cocktail dress with a black pearl necklace, or pin a large black pearl brooch against a silver or lilac shawl for a nice pop of color. Finish off with a sleek and smooth pulled-up hairstyle, some black eyeliner and mascara, and a plum or raspberry lipstick, and you’ll have pulled off the art of wearing black pearls perfectly.
