Pearl jewelry has always represented class, style and elegance. It has been worn for centuries and the world over by women as well as men. Pearls were highly regarded in royal societies, where this precious gem adorned the crown, tiaras, and the clothes of the aristocrats.
Pearls are still going strong and have become an indispensable part of every woman's wardrobe and fashion sense. There are several fashionable ways to wear pearls, which can make even the most boring clothes look stunning. A simple pearl chain can be worn in so many different ways that it will never seem as if you're repeating your jewelry.
Wearing Pearls in a Fashionable Way
You can wear a long pearl chain by tying a knot at the middle of the chain and letting the rest of the pearls dangle in a loop. This style can be worn with a casual t-shirt or a tunic dress, along with a chunky bracelet.
Your simple pearl chain can be made to look classy by making a necktie knot and then shifting this knot to the side of the neck, so that the pearls fall over your shoulder. Or you could make a choker with the pearls, so that it has 4 strings on the neck, ending with the necktie knot on the side.
Front and Back Chain
A hundred inch pearl chain can be worn to make them fall in 3 layers in front of the dress as well as at the back of the dress. You may make these 3 layers using three different pearl chains, if you wish to add more variety to the style. Adding really big and round pearls in between two thin strands of pearls, looks fabulous, especially when the pearls are of different shades as well.
A normal pearl chain can be worn with other types of pearls and even colorful beads, including artificial glass beads, so as to add a unique variety of colors and trend, to your attire.
You can turn your boring pearl chain into an elegant choker necklace by tying the chain with a thick silver string or jewelry loop lock. It is, however, better to buy a choker pearl necklace, as these look stunning with strapless and halter-neck dresses.
Pearl and Brooch
You can use a brooch and clip it to a layer of pearls or simply place it at the end of the chain. After which you may wear the pearl necklace so that the brooch adorns the side of your neck. It can also be used to replace the central knot pattern, by placing the brooch in the center of the necklace.
A simple pearl chain can be worn as a headband or worn over the forehead, in a gypsy or hippie manner. This is a unique way of wearing pearls, without making it seem like a wedding hair band. The idea is to give your new look a bohemian appeal.
Side Slant Chains
A long chain of pearls can be worn diagonally over your torso so that the chain ends at your waist. You have to wear your pearl necklace like how you would wear a sling satchel. It would be better if you could wear 5-6 of such chains together or add longer chains of gold or silver to it. You may opt for artificial alternatives, for completing this look.
Wear your pearl chain over your waist to accessorize a plain dress or to accentuate your figure. You may wear this style on long and short dresses, and it looks especially nice on tunic designs. You may wear it over trousers, while it wraps around a semi casual t-shirt.
Wind your pearl chain over your wrist, to make a thick chunk. Add a few colorful beads to the layers to give it a grunge look. This style of wearing pearls can be worn with almost anything, from dresses, to casual tops and skinny trousers.
Pearl Hair Band
You can make a messy hair bun and then gently wrap a pearl chain to the hairstyle. Or you could make a loose braid and wind the pearl necklace along with the hair. This is a rather elaborate look, which can be tried out for a formal occasion. For example in a wedding, which had been based on a vintage or ancient theme.
Wearing chunky pearl earrings, can be fun and will definitely enhance the beauty of your dress. Do not hesitate to pile up your pearl chains along with some fake ones, if you wish to have more volume on your neck. A chunky necklace requires no other embellishments to be added to the dress, making dressing up easier, quicker and classier!
