Why You Should Consider Wearing Pearls for Your Wedding Jewelry

In collaboration with The Pearl Source

The final touch to your wedding ensemble is your accessories. Jewelry can add that polished touch to your look and give you a little extra shimmer. 

When it comes to wedding jewelry, pearls are a beautiful and classic choice. Plus, they complement any style of dress, every skin tone and fit with any hairstyle.

Pearl Jewelry is Classic & Classy

The history of pearls as jewelry goes back centuries. According to The Jewellery Editor, “Pearls were presented as gifts to Chinese royalty as early as 2300 BC, while in ancient Rome, pearl jewellery was considered the ultimate status symbol. So precious were the spherical gems that in the 1st century BC, Julius Caesar passed a law limiting the wearing of pearls only to the ruling classes.” There’s no doubt you’ll feel like a queen on your wedding day and pearls can help complete the look.

Our new favorite place to shop for pearls is The Pearl Source. First, they’re not a regular jeweler that carries all different kinds of jewelry. They focus on just one type of jewelry and put all of their energy into being the experts in their field–just like us with wedding videos!

Secondly, they have so many styles–from red-carpet worthy to classic studs to modern vibes. Plus, the majority of items can be customized by changing the color of the pearls, changing the metal and even upgrading the quality of the pearls. With The Pearl Source, you can create the perfect wedding jewelry to fit your style on your wedding day and wear for years to come.

That being said, here are a few of our favorite items they offer:

14K Freshwater Baroque Pearl Deborah Earrings

These chic little drop earrings are our number one choice for a modern classic take on wedding jewelry. They’re available in white gold or yellow gold and are an affordable option that will last long enough, both in quality and style, to hand them down to a niece or even your daughter on her wedding day. The irregular shape of the freshwater pearls makes them look like you’re wearing a modern piece of art, handcrafted by mother nature herself. 

Japanese Akoya White Pearl Tincup Bracelet

Similar to the Deborah Earrings above, the Tincup Bracelet features the metal chain and pearl combo as well, but with perfectly symmetrical Japanese Akoya pearls. The pearls come in white, ivory or rose overtones to coordinate with your dress. There are white gold and yellow gold options to match your engagement and wedding rings as well.

5.0-5.5mm White Akoya Pearl Stud Earrings

While there are a ton of other gorgeous and more creative options on The Pearl Source, we had to choose these classic pearl stud earrings as one of our top faves due to their minimalist beauty and timeless style. These pearl studs can be dressed up for a special event or dressed down for daily wear. 

Because they’re so simple–and we mean that in the best way–they can pair with an ornate necklace on your wedding day or a wedding dress neckline that has a lot of detail. 

Plus, if you ever tire of these classic beauties, which we doubt you will, you can always pass them down to others in your family for years to come. They will never be out of style and always be considered a treasured piece of jewelry.
