You may have already noticed - pearl and gold jewellery has been having a major moment for the past couple of years.
Whether you love following the latest trends or are simply a lover of beautiful jewellery, you've probably seen this trend popping up everywhere - from the runway to the high-street. The classic combination of pearls and gold has recently undergone a modern twist, which Claudia loves to celebrate in her unique, modern designs, bringing pearls into the 21st century.
Why Gold and Pearl Jewellery Has Become So Popular
The timeless combination of pearls and gold has long been a popular option, but it seems that more and more people are turning to this classic pairing. The reason for this resurgence is simple: pearls and gold can be worn in both classic and modern ways.
Layering pearls and gold with other jewellery is a modern take on the classic pairing. The combination of traditional and modern elements creates a unique and fresh look, which you as the wearer can really make your own. Not to mention, pearls and gold look great on any skin tone and can easily be dressed up or down.
What to Look for When Choosing Your Gold Pearl Jewellery
When choosing your pearl and gold jewellery, it's important to make sure the pearls are round and have a consistent colour and lustre. Be wary of pearls that have a dull, chalky appearance, as this is a sign of lower quality. For the gold always, look for 14k or 18k gold. 24k gold is actually too soft for everyday wear and can easily scratch.
Be sure to also look at the clasp and if it’s a pearl gold necklace, it’s advisable to find an adjustable clasp which allows you to wear the necklace at different lengths. Nearly all Claudia Bradby designs include this. Adjustable necklaces are perfect for ensuring your jewellery suits different outfits and necklines.
How to Layer Pearl and Gold Jewellery
Layering your pearl and gold jewellery can be a daunting task, but it's easier than you think and can become a bit of a hobby for everyday jewellery wearers.
Start with a statement piece, like a necklace or bracelet, and add smaller pieces, like earrings or rings. Layering bracelets and necklaces of different lengths can add depth and texture to your outfit. Don't be afraid to mix metals, such as layering a pearl and gold necklace with a silver chain. The most important thing when layering jewellery is to have fun, experiment with different styles.
At Claudia Bradby we’re firm believers in jewellery making you feel good and like yourself, rather than just accessorising an outfit.
Celebrities Seen Wearing Gold and Pearl Jewellery
From royalty to Hollywood stars, many celebrities have been spotted wearing pearls and gold. Rihanna was seen wearing pearl and gold hoop earrings to a recent film premiere, adding the perfect touch of glamour to her outfit. Emma Watson was also spotted wearing a pearl and gold necklace at the Met Gala, adding a modern twist to the classic trend.
