Pearls are unique among gemstones as they don't arise from the depths of the earth but from the sea. They require no special cutting or polishing to enhance their natural beauty, which has been treasured since ancient times and ensures that pearl jewellery is always in style.
Pearls are going strong for Summer 2020. The classic material made appearances in just about every form from single drop earrings to layered necklaces and even on headpieces at Khaite. Classic to baroque, what's new about the pearl trend is the attitude and how you pair it.
Pearls are the ultimate symbol for wisdom. Valued for their calming effects, pearls represent serenity, while being able to strengthen valuable relationships and convey a sense of safety. Pearls are also a symbol of purity, as well as integrity and loyalty.
The pearl is a symbol of perfection and incorruptibility, a symbol of long life and fertility, and because of its luster it is often considered a Moon symbol. Buried within the oyster shell, the pearl like all fine women represents hidden knowledge and Mystique, because of this it is considered to be the most feminine gem of all.
