Football tournaments drive sales of pearl jewellery online

In our experience International Football Tournaments have an unexpected impact on Pearl Jewellery Online sales, previous World Cup’s and European Football Tournaments have seen our sales of jewellery soar. Our belief is that when the TV gets monopolised for viewing Football games that ladies indulge themselves, or retaliate depending upon your view point, by doing a spot off online shopping for a few luxuries for themselves, and pearl jewellery can be the perfect affordable luxury item! This year we expect to see ladies from England, Wales and Scotland follow past trends and shop, shop, shop as the Euro 2021 tournament progresses.

Pearls are the height of fashion this year and our expectation is that the following items are likely to see a Euro 2021 driven sales bounce in the coming weeks:

Pearl Jewellery Online

Pearl Choker sales have been strong this year driven by a range of celebrities wearing Pearl Chokers in the media in recent months, including Billie Eilish with a simple choker featuring small pearls through to Dup Lipa at the Brits sporting a stunning multi strand choker to compliment her Vivienne Westwood designer outfit. Our 16″ 5mm Pearl Choker with a Sterling Silver clasp is incredibly priced at just £19.95! Whereas if you favour the multi strand look then our Double Strand Choker Necklaces start at just £94.95

Hoop Earrings

Hoop Earrings have been a popular fashion item over the last couple of years, with large hoops being a feature of many catwalks and for the summer of 2021 Sterling Silver Hoops with Pearl Drops are a sought after accessory . Our Pearl Drop Earrings collection features both large hoops and huggie hoops in a range of styles and colours with prices starting from just £19.95, perfect to compliment your summer wardrobe.

Pearl Pendant

Single Pearl Necklaces are another hot item this summer, the simple elegance of a single pearl is both stylish and a modern twist on pearl jewellery. We love Baroque Pearls, and a large Baroque Pearl on slim necklace chain creates a fabulous jewellery piece, whilst for an opulent option we would suggest a single round white pearl on an 18k gold necklace chain

In our Pearl Necklace and Pearl Pendant collections we have stylish options to suit all budgets and pearl shape or colour preferences.

Pearl Jewellery at the Brits

The Brit Awards are a great annual celebration of the best UK music, however in recent years it’s been great to see Pearl Jewellery at the Brits, being showcased by the stars.

At the Brits in 2020 Harry Styles caused a stir arriving in a stylish brown suit accessorised with a white pearl necklace, it’s an image that was splashed across news sites and fashion blogs across the UK in the days and weeks that followed

Harry Styles Pearl Necklace

Harry Styles actually changed outfits three times at the 2020 Brits, switching into a lace jumpsuit, again accessorised with a pearl necklace, to perform Falling, then changing again after his performance to end the evening in a yellow tuxedo. Is this the night Pearls for Men arrived, no actually we need to look to the US Music scene and Hollywood, it was perhaps Pharrell Williams who was the original trendsetter wearing layered pearl necklaces on a catwalk for Chanel back in 2016.

Pharrell Williams Pearls

Since then we’ve seen A$AP Rocky wearing a pearl necklace on many occasions, including at the Grammys. Singer Shawn Mendes has worn pearls are numerous occasions and many other stars of the US music scene have joined the trend.

In 2021 we might have expected it would be male stars who would once again steal the limelight with pearl jewellery, but that is not how it panned out and this year the look that is featuring heavily in the media and in fashion blogs is Dua Lipa’s.

dua lipa pearl necklace

 

The star was nominated in three categories, and received the Best Album award for Nostalgia, also the Best Female Solo Artist award, yet it is perhaps for her iconic fashions that night the she will be most remembered. She chose the veteran punk fashion designer Vivienne Westwood for her outfits, starting the night in a stunning yellow silk mini dress with train, accessorised with a fabulous triple strand pearl choker and double strand pearl bracelet. The stylish punky look was a show stealer, and also once again put pearl jewellery centre stage at the Brits.

Historically we may have looked to the catwalks of the major fashion shows to get an insight into the latest jewellery trends, and to get an idea of what is going to be hot in the coming season, but times are changing and a much more relevant indicator of the jewellery styles and fashions that people are actually going to buy and wear can be seen at the Brits and the Grammys.

If you would like to recreate any of the iconic looks of Pearl Jewellery at the Brits then talk to our team, some items we have in stock and others we can create bespoke, be bold in your choice of Celebrity Fashions!

Pearl Cufflinks or Mother of Pearl Cufflinks Stylish and Timeless

In our opinion Pearl Cufflinks, or Mother of Pearl Cufflinks are stylish and timeless. The actual history of cufflinks is relatively recent, as though they came into use in the 1600’s it wasn’t until the middle of the 19th Century that they became fashionable and their use widespread. The rise in the popularity of cufflinks is mainly down to shirt design and changes in dress codes as the more flamboyant dress styles of the aristocracy was replaced by a more practical style of the working middle classes as industrialisation took place, out went ruffs and lose cuffs and in came dark formal suits with tails and waistcoats, starched shirts with double cuffs which could not be secured by a simple button.

Mother of Pearl Cufflinks

Initially gemstone cufflinks were only worn by highly confident men, however in the UK Edward VII wore Faberge cufflinks and a trend was started that spread from the UK to US. By the 1900’s cufflinks were highly popular, and a wide range of cufflink styles and designs emerged, that we still see retailed today in 2021.

Black Cufflinks

Black Pearls

In current fashions the cufflink is not only associated with formal dress but is equally likely to be paired with a formal shirt and jeans as both evening wear and office clothes become more casual and mix and match.

Pearl Cufflinks Sterling Silver

Pearl Cufflinks (Solid Silver)

The cufflink is still part of formal, and informal, wedding attire for the groom and best man, and for those occasions we would favour a Solid Silver Cufflink, as they also make a great Best Man Gift.

Unisex Cufflinks

Unisex Cufflinks

As fashion becomes Unisex we also see an increase in women using Cufflinks as a bold statement of empowerment and fashion, wearing cufflinks with a formal shirt. We stock not only white cufflinks but also pink and black pearls.

Rectangular Cufflinks

Rectangular Cufflinks

Mother of Pearl Cufflinks, also make a great gift for a person born in June, where Pearls are the birthstone for the month, making the gift much more personal and thoughtful. Our Mother of Pearl Cufflinks also make a great Fathers Day Gift, with Fathers Day in the UK falling on Sunday 20th of June this year. A Fathers Day Gift of Pearl or Mother of Pearl Cufflinks is a stylish fashion accessory that will be treasured for many years.

Here at Pearl Jewellery Online we obviously love pearls, and as we see fashions for men wearing pearls hit the headlines in 2021 it is worth remembering that men have been wearing pearl jewellery, in the form of pearl cufflinks for several centuries!

Pearl Pendant or Single Pearl Necklace?

What do you call them, a Pearl Pendant or Single Pearl Necklace? We struggle with this as it seems people use both terms to describe pearls on silver chains. One thing we do have clarity on is that they are becoming increasingly popular, as the fashion for simple elegance is growing and timeless.

Pearl Pendants

Large South Sea Shell Pearl Pendants

As we categorise items on our website we’ve chosen to list items that drop from a necklace chain as a Pearl Pendant, whereas a single pearl, or cluster of pearls integrated onto the chain as a Single Pearl Necklace.

Single Pearl Necklace

Single Pearl Necklace

With summer approaching fashions become more casual and a Pearl Pendant, or Single Pearl Necklace, becomes the perfect jewellery accessory. We love these Coin Pearl Pendants in beautiful pastel shades, which hang on a simple Silver Necklace chain.

A simple elegant oval pearl on a sterling silver necklace chain is an item of jewellery that looks expensive, but is actually great value very affordable as an everyday jewellery item, and takes no space at all when packing your summer holiday jewellery

Pearl Drop Pendant

Pearl Drop Pendant

Large beads and chains feature heavily as jewellery designs on this seasons catwalks, and these trends cross over to Pearl Pendant designs, and we’ve chosen Baroque Pearls on Gold Chains as the perfect expression of current fashions. A simple statement piece that is affordable and stands out from the crowd whether it’s worn at work, on a Zoom call, or hopefully at some point this summer in a beach bar.

A Pearl Pendant has so many uses, they make a great gift as the simple elegance makes it an easy fashion choice and you don’t have to worry about sizing as an 18″ necklace chain suits most women. We often see simple Pearl Pendants used as Bridesmaid Jewellery and we’ve helped many brides to select matching items for their Bridesmaids and worked to their budgets. As we approach summer we always see a rise in Pearl sales in late May, as the June Birthstone is a Pearl, and a Pearl Pendant or Single Pearl Necklace makes a great June Birthstone Gift.

Gold Pearl Pendant

We find that 9ct Gold Pearl Pendants are extremely popular, a single pearl drop on 9ct Gold Pendant with a slim 9ct Gold Necklace Chain is an item of jewellery that you will keep for a lifetime.

Pearl Jewellery UK

The pandemic has been a mixed blessing for the Pearl Jewellery UK market, on the one hand the lock down has given people less opportunity to socialise and to dress up, whereas on the other hand it has given many women more time to spend shopping online, and for some slightly more disposable income to spend on luxuries, perhaps using the budget usually consumed by nights out and holidays?

As an online retailer based in the UK the lockdown has given us a further challenge, how to buy pearls when travel to suppliers is off limits? In normal times we might visit the Hong Kong Jewellery Show, generally held each February, which assembles the worlds largest selection of cultured pearls, with over 1,000 pearl farm suppliers showing their pearls in the Pearl Hall at the Jewellery Show. Sifting through the tons of pearl strands and lose pearls to find the best quality and value items to make Pearl Necklaces or Pearl Earrings takes days.

Pearl Jewellery UK - Buying Pearls

HK Jewellery Show Pearls

However last year the Jewellery Show was cancelled, and this year it has been moved to June and it’s still questionable whether it will go ahead or whether we will be able to travel to Hong Kong. At Pearl Jewellery Online we are fortunate that the Hong Kong Show is only a small part of our sourcing activity, and that we have a range of suppliers with whom we have worked for over a decade whom we can trust to supply to our quality standards, even when working remotely. In addition we are fortunate to have a Pearl Expert in Hong Kong, Pierre, who can liaise directly with suppliers and ensure only quality items are shipped. Even so we’ve had to double down on our QC activity when Pearl Jewellery arrives in the UK.

Pearls are a natural item and visual inspection for colour, shape, size, surface imperfections and lustre is a key part of ensuring that only the best quality pearls are made into Pearl Jewellery, it can never become an automated process and requires skill and experience.

The Covid Pandemic may have changed the way that consumers buy their Pearl Jewellery in the UK, and as an online retailer we hope the increased share of Pearl Necklaces, Pearl Earrings and other Pearl Jewellery being purchased online will be maintained, however we also know that once the pandemic recedes and travel restrictions are lifted that our interactions with Pearl Farms in Asia will return to the previous pattern, and hopefully we will also see the Hong Kong Jewellery Show return to its normal February slot, even though it means a return to days of eye testing work and negotiations in the Pearl Hall.

Mother’s Day Gifts

What are the traditional Mother’s Day Gifts? Well actually Mothers Day is a relatively new celebration, it was first celebrated in 1908 in the US, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother and began a campaign to get the Mother’s Day made a national holiday in the US. The celebration of Mothers has spread around the World, though the dates chosen vary and in the UK we celebrate Mothering Sunday on the fourth Sunday in Lent, which this year is 14th March 2021. Some countries already had a tradition of celebrating motherhood and have adopted some of the characteristics of the US celebration, such as giving Mother’s Day Gifts.

2021 Pearl Jewellery Fashion Trends

Historically pearls represented innocence, purity and femininity, however the latest fashion trends are far more dynamic and irreverent. The changing image of the pearl mirrors how the status of women in society is changing to be bolder and more powerful.

Pearls are one of the hot jewellery fashion items for 2021. The trend is being driven by both adoption by ‘twentysomethings’ in bold designs, with novel accessorising, and by global celebrities and fashion designers.

In the US pearls have long been worn by the First Lady in the Whitehouse. Jackie Kennedy favoured a triple strand pearl necklace, whereas Michelle Obama wore supersized pearls. We now have a Vice President, Kamala Harris, who loves pearl jewellery and at this years inauguration wore a stylish pearl necklace designed by New York based designer Wilfred Rosado. Rosado’s hip-hop inspired necklace, combined heavy gold chain links with lustrous white pearls.

It was not only Kamala Harris who chose pearls for the inauguration. Jennifer Lopez wore statement pearl earrings, youth poet Amanda Gorman wore a pearl ring gifted to her by Oprah, California Congresswoman Barbara Lee wore a pearl necklace, and Jill Biden had a pearl embroidered collar.

Over the last year Harris has helped reinvent the style of ‘political pearls’, choosing bold powerful jewellery styles and pairing them not only with business suits but also with Converse pumps and Jeans. In the coming year we expect to see more of Kamala Harris’s reputed $20,000 pearl jewellery collection, which includes a large black baroque pearl necklace and a long gold station necklace, which often wears double looped.

It is not only Kamala Harris who is pairing Pearl Jewellery with casual fashion styles. We’ve seen American fashion model Gigi Hadid sporting pearl necklaces with tie dyed t-shirts and jeans, pearl earrings and baseball caps, ripped denim and pearls, baroque pearl drop earrings plus endless other casual pearl fashion looks.

In the UK we have seen popstar Harry Styles break conventions by adopting both pearl earrings and pearl necklaces as part of his fashion accessories, prompting a new trend for men adopting pearl jewellery.

In Vogue fashion designer, and LVMH Prize finalist, Charaf Tajer recently said “When we play with Pearls we take the macho man into a situation of more softness. When you show your sensitivity, you can show your strength as well.”

In the UK, despite Jewellers being closed, the interest in sourcing Pearl Jewellery online has remained strong, as gifting and Zoom fashion has maintained demand. Once the latest lockdown ends the desire to socialise, dress up and enjoy long lost freedoms will undoubtedly see pearls take centre stage as one of this years must have fashion accessories.

Check out our bold Pearl Necklaces, stunning Baroque Pearl Pendants and Baroque Pearl Drop Earrings to make your 2021 fashion statement.

Pearl Jewellery Worn By TV & Film Stars

It was interesting that as we sat and watched the film Mr Banks on TV last night, in which Emma Thompson wears a black pearl choker, that we should see orders on our Pearl Jewellery Online website for black pearl chokers whilst the film was still on air.

Pearl Jewellery

 

This is certainly not a new phenomena for us, a couple of years ago a contestant on The Apprentice TV series wore a stylish Pearl Collar on several episodes, and we started to receive enquiries regarding whether we stock 3 or 4 row pearl collars. As a result we now stock a very popular 4 row pearl collar

Pearl Jewellery

Perhaps one of the most popular instances of a celebrity spurring demand for a particular type of Pearl Jewellery has been Mary Berry on the BBC Bake Off TV Series. We started making solid gold and pearl necklaces similar to the Mary Berry Bake Off Necklace over a year ago and it has proved to be a popular Christmas and Birthday Present.

Pearl Jewellery

We’ve been watching with interest the success of the movie Jackie, starring Natalie Portman, as the Triple Strand Pearl Necklace, often referred to as the Jackie O Necklace, is iconic and we expect significant interest in this item when the movie makes it’s way to UK TV.
