When choosing pearls there are 7 elements to consider:
- Pearl Lustre: Lustre is key. A lustrous pearl lights-up your face, subtly enhancing your beauty. All our pearls have been individually chosen for their depth of lustre.
- Pearl Nacre Thickness: Nacre is the outer coating of the pearl. The thicker the nacre the longer the pearl will last, and usually the better the lustre will be.
- Pearl surface perfection: A few marks give a pearl a hallmark of authenticity. However, a very blemished or dull pearl will reduce its value significantly.
- Pearl Colour: Your eye-colour, skin-tone and hair-colour will determine your perfect beauty-enhancing pearl. Book a colour-matching appointment by calling +44 (0) 20 7373 3369 or emailing email@example.com
- Pearl Shape: Irregular-shaped pearls tend to suit people with prominent features. Round-shaped pearls tend to suit people with very fine features.
- Pearl Size & Length: Consider your overall build and age. A graduated row of pearls will lengthen your face and slim your neckline. A choker will accentuate the beauty of your shoulders. A double row of pearls at the base of your neck will conceal wrinkles at a later stage of life.
- Pearl Versatility: Our ethos is that jewellery should be flexible. Most of our designs can be worn in multiple ways to fit your mood and outfit; and can be easily re-designed if you fancy a complete change!
