Despite the fact that they’re my birthstone, it took me a long time to get into pearls. They just didn’t suit my personal style. Over the past few years, though, my style has evolved and I have gotten into them in a big way. These days, I wear my pearl studs at least three days a week, and I recently acquired a triple-strand of Majorica pearls that I get a zillion compliments on whenever I wear it.
So what’s the story with Majorica pearls? Basically, they’re man-made as opposed to forming in an oyster. Creating them in a factory eliminates most of the quality control issues that come with traditional pearl farming. It also cuts down on the cost– making it possible to get great-looking, oversized pearls for much less than the thousands a cultured strand will cost. As an added bonus, man-made pearls resolve the animal cruelty issues some have with pearls that are formed in mollusks.
And guess what? They look amazing! Whether you wear them with timeless sheath dresses a la Jackie O or pile them on with a black turtleneck and jeans, they are effortlessly chic.
For all these reasons, I highly recommend you check out the Majorica boutique at Ideeli.com today. More details below:
Pearls may be the holiest stones we can think of-—the gorgeous orbs are mentioned with reverence inHindu, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim sacred texts alike. Take one look at the pieces by Majorica–made of organic, man-made pearls–and you can see why. For more than a century, the Spanish jeweler has been crafting necklaces, bracelets, and earrings of timeless elegance and delicate beauty. That’s not to say they’re not absolutely contemporary, too. These aren’t your grandmother’s strands. Dress up a pair of jeans with one of Majorica’s statement charms on a subtle chain, or go all-out for evening with a velvet-and-pearl choker. What’s old is new again.
