Wear your pearl bracelets anywhere!
Pearl bracelets are elegant pieces of jewellery that you will want for life and most likely one which you will pass on for generations. A pearl bracelet will carry your story and be an essential part of you from the first time you wear it. Whether you go for a stylish look with a single bracelet or a trendy look with a stacked mix of several bracelets, your pearl bracelet will stand out.
Pearls are known for their muted glow and silken lustre, making them perfect for all occasions. Bracelets with pearls are not flashy or gaudy, making them versatile accessories for the day or night, with office wear, casual attire, and even with dressy formals.
Real pearl bracelets
Pearl bracelets in fine jewellery are made with “real” cultured pearls, which cost more than fake ones but are always worth it. If you are looking for the highest quality pearl bracelets, go for genuine pearls. Most types of cultured pearls are named after the places of their origin. You might fall in love with a lovely freshwater pearl bracelet, a charming Keshi or Akoya pearl bracelet, or a stunning South Sea or dark-toned Tahiti pearl bracelet.
♦ Real pearl bracelets are captivating in their beauty and glow, something you will not find in an item with fake pearls
♦ Bracelets made with real pearls are irregularly shaped and no two pearl will be exactly alike in weight or shape. Best examples for real pearls with unique shapes are freshwater pearls and baroque pearls.
♦ The Japanese Akoya pearls are cultured in seawater mollusks. These show the most regular round shapes with beautiful lustre
♦ Real pearls in bracelets will have smaller drill holes. Fake pearls usually made of glass or resins will have larger drill holes.
♦ Real pearls are organic and warm up next to the skin. They also absorb moisture from the skin.
♦ Authentic cultured pearls have a gritty texture. A smooth, glassy pearl on the other hand is most likely an imitation pearl.
Types of pearl bracelets
Lovely designer pearl bracelets come in many styles and types. We can divide them broadly by the style of the bracelet, the kind of pearls used, and the metal with which they are made. The cost of the pearl bracelet depends on the size and colour and origin of the pearls, metal used, and design and artisanship.
Coloured pearls in bracelets
The importance of a pearl's colour has been discussed for ages. Pearls range from light to dark colours. While the pearl’s most popular colour is a creamy white, you can get a pearl bracelet with pearls in delightful hues of pink, peach, grey, and black. Options include classic white pearl bracelets, Tahitian black pearl bracelets and dreamy pink freshwater pearl bracelets.
Pearl bracelets by size and shape of the pearls
Pearl bracelets also vary according to the size and shape of the pearls used. The choice could be between round Akoya pearls or fancy irregularly shaped freshwater pearls, rose bud pearls, potato pearls and fancy baroque pearls. Or, you might want a bracelet with tiny pearls or large ones.
Bracelets with rice pearls or small pearls is dainty and charming, while a bracelet with large pearls is an eyecatching statement piece. A bracelet with baroque pearls is exceptional as no two such pearls are identical. The baroque pearls seen in beautiful pearl bracelets have a sculptural and unique beauty.
Pearl bracelets by style
Pearl bracelets can be categorised according to their design.
Pearl chain bracelets have a delicate and flexible design with a slim silver or gold chain embellished with one or many pearls. These minimal bracelets fasten with a hook or clasp.
Pearl bracelets with charms hanging from them are very popular, especially with young women. These could be in the form of little pendant charms hanging from a strand of pearls that encircles your wrist or the charms themselves may be made of pearls and hung on a flexible chain bracelet. These too fasten with a clasp.
Pearl bangle bracelets are not flexible. They are rigid circles of metal set with pearls. Some bangle bracelets are adjustable.
Pearl cuff bracelets are similar to bangle bracelets, except they have an opening wide enough to allow you to slip on so it fits around your wrist.
Pearl bracelets by material
Pearl bracelets can be made without any metal; the pearls are simply strung on silk or nylon thread. The popular versions available are silver and pearl bracelets and gold and pearl bracelets.
Gold and pearl bracelets are elegant. Beautiful pearls are perfectly incorporated into the design to match the metal in which the pearl bracelet is designed. Depending on your preference, you might want your pearl bracelet in white, yellow, or rose gold.
Silver and pearl bracelets will surely win your heart when shopping with a budget in mind. Just make sure that the silver is sterling and of 925 purity.
Pearl bead bracelets are made of only pearls and beads, often with no metal used even for the closure. These may be a simple strand of pearls that fastens with a clasp or a fun piece highlighted with colourful beaded accents and secured with a bead and loop.
Pearl and diamond bracelets are the ultimate in luxury and style. Pearls and diamonds make a classic combination, and bracelets with these gems have adorned the wrists of royals and celebrities for decades.
Pearl and gemstone bracelets attract women of discerning taste. All gemstones pair beautifully with pearls and, when combined in bracelets, make eye-catching pieces of jewellery.
Care for your real pearl bracelets
Real pearls are soft organic gems that tend to absorb what they come in contact with, and are easily damaged by rough use. Chemicals in perspiration, perfumes, lotions, hairspray or make-up can damage your designer pearl bracetets. Therefore, we recommend that you show a little tender love and care with your favourite pearl bracelets. Put them on last and take them off first thing.
You can never go wrong with a pearl bracelet. First, you don’t need to worry about size as most pearl bracelets, unlike rings, fit any wrist. Second, it is a suitable accessory, no matter the occasion. Please contact us if you want clarifications about quality, size, care of pearls, or delivery time. Until then, happy shopping!
