History and Love of Pearl Jewellery Gifts

The History and Love of Pearl Jewellery Gifts

Claudia’s love for pearls stemmed from their iconic nature, coveted for their beauty, elegance and timeless appeal. From pearl string necklaces to stud earrings, bangle bracelets and more, they have been gifted for centuries as a sign of love and appreciation.


Why Everyone Loves Giving and Receiving Pearls

Pearls are a gemstone that can be worn by anyone, regardless of their style preferences or age. They are suitable for both younger and older recipients, making them a versatile and thoughtful choice for gifts. And there are now beautiful, affordable options available for every budget.

Pearls are an elegant and special gemstone that have long been associated with wealth and status. They can add a touch of luxury to any outfit and make the wearer feel like a million dollars, making pearl gifts perfect for spoiling someone special.


Pearl Birthday Gifts to Remember Forever

If you're looking for a special birthday gift that will be treasured for years to come, the pearl is a good place to start.

Known as the June birthstone, but loved universally no matter what time of year your loved one was born, pearl gifts with meaning offer something truly thoughtful and special.

Take Claudia's signature, and iconic design, The World is Your Oyster, which has become a bestseller for its easy-to-wear design and touching sentiment.


The Meaning Behind Pearl 30th Anniversary Gifts

Pearls also hold significant meaning as a 30th anniversary gift. Thirty years of marriage is a major milestone, and the pearl represents the beauty that has come from the growth and perseverance of your relationship.

There are many different ways to celebrate this special moment, from a classic pearl necklace or earrings to a more modern twist on pearl jewellery. We always advise people to choose whatever feels most meaningful to you and your partner.


Pearl Christmas Gifts - Wear on the Big Day and Treasure Forever

Christmas is always our busiest time of year at the Claudia Bradby workshop here in Hampshire and that’s because pearls are always a safe and loving jewellery gift option.

Whether you choose a classic pearl necklace for your recipient to wear with a festive dress or a pair of pearl earrings to add a touch of elegance to every day wear, your loved one will treasure their pearl jewellery forever.

And if you're looking for a luxurious touch, don't forget to pay attention to the packaging. A carefully packaged gift with a handwritten note will show how much thought and care went into choosing the perfect present, both of which we offer here at Claudia Bradby. 


Our Most Loved Pearl Earrings and Necklace Gifts

In recent years, our most loved pearl earring gifts is always our Button Pearl Studs – a timeless option loved by all generations worn by style icon Dame Helen Mirren.

Our newer edition to the CB handcrafted collection, The Meditative Pearl Spinner Necklace was also a popular choice for Christmas 2022. A unique 360 spinning pearl, this design is most loved as a daily touchstone. Tibetan Monks use spinning items to calm their minds, and this necklace, with its lustrous pearl that spins 360 degrees on its axis, is no exception.


The history and meaning behind a pearl jewellery gift is rich and varied. From birthday gifts to anniversary celebrations, graduations and Christmas presents, pearls have long been associated with elegance and strength making them a memorable, special gift for any occasion.
