Pearls have famously been given as gifts throughout the ages. Perhaps the most famous of all gifted pearls was La Peregrina, found off the Panama coast in the 16th century and presented to Queen Mary of Spain by her new husband, King Phillip II of Spain. After changing hands many times throughout the years, the same exquisite pearl was later famously presented to Elizabeth Taylor by her husband Richard Burton.
Whether you’re thinking about presenting your spouse or family member with a flawless pearl pendant, pearl earrings or pearl necklace in Sydney, here are our four big reasons that pearls are the perfect gift for any birthday.
From a pair of dainty baroque pearl studs to a statement pearl necklace, these luminescent orbs from the sea will complement all ages and skin tones. They light up creamy pale skin, glow gently against darker skin, and provide a beautiful aesthetic with all hair colors and styles. From when you’re 17 to when you’re 73, pearls are an accessory for life.
Because pearls are an organic gemstone and absorb moisture from your skin, they actually give off their best lustre when they are worn regularly. This is all the more reason to gift an exquisite string pearl necklace or pendant to be enjoyed and admired on a daily or weekly basis.
Jackie Kennedy famously said that pearls are always appropriate, and we couldn’t agree more. There are few pieces of jewellery as versatile as a pearl necklace or set of perfect pearl studs. You could pair your pearls with a dressed down T-shirt and jeans, or with a stunning evening gown for a black-tie function.
