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.

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 Necklaces and Summer Fashions

As the winter recedes and the weather turns sunny our thoughts are turning to our Pearl Necklaces and Summer Fashions. This summer more than any recent summers women are going to want to dress up and break out of the Covid blues with some beautiful clothes and jewellery. It would be wrong to think of Pearl Jewellery as only an accessory for a formal setting as current fashions are much more irreverent, and we stock both formal and casual Pearl Jewellery in modern designs.

Pearl Illusion Necklace

Pearl Illusion Necklace

So what are our recommendations for summery Pearl Necklaces that can be worn with beachwear or casual summer outfits? A perennial summer favourite is a Floating Illusion Pearl Necklace, and we see strong demand each Spring as women prepare their summer wardrobes and jewellery accessories for the coming season. A Pearl Illusion Necklace features small pearls spaced along a nylon thread, giving the illusion of floating unsupported when viewed, these multi-strand necklaces are very affordable and are a stylish item of jewellery that works well with a summer dress. We have a stunning 11 Strand Pearl Illusion Necklace on offer for just £34.95.

Single Pearl Necklace

Single Pearl Necklace

A Single Pearl Necklace is another great option for the Summer of 2021, a large round white pearl on a sterling silver necklace chain has a simple understated elegance, the perfect complimentary item for your summer wardrobe. We have two stylish Single Pearl Necklaces on offer for just £29.95.

Pearl Station Necklace

Pearl Station Necklace

Pearl Station Necklaces look great all year round, but in our view they are perfectly suited to accessorize casual summer fashions. A Station Necklace features pearls spaced, or ‘stationed’, along a thin sterling silver chain. We love this type of necklace, which are also known as Tin Cup Necklaces, as the style was popularised in the US after Rene Russo wore this style of necklace in the movie Tin Cup. We stock several styles of Pearl Station Necklace: Oval Pearls in White, Pink, Lavender or Black. Coin Pearls in White or Pastel Pink. Baroque Pearls in White, in a longer length of 20” or 22” with a stunning backdrop (very popular for Weddings). Priced from £34.95 to 39.95 all on Sterling Silver these are a very affordable item of stylish summer jewellery.

Long Pearl Necklace

Long Pearl Necklace

One item we stocked especially for the summer is our Long Pearl Necklace with Sunshine Coin Pearls, the stunning silver, gold and coffee coloured large pearls are absolutely on trend for the current fashion for colourful large bead necklaces, and at just £69.95 for a 48” string of pearls you are getting great value.

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.

Pearl Necklaces – How to Shop Online

Pearl Necklaces – How To Shop Online

The number of people choosing to shop online is increasing rapidly, and the latest IMRG Sales Index shows 16.3% growth year on year, with fashion accessories up a massive 48%

Whether you are seasoned online shopping pro, or just dipping your toe in the water, we will try in this blog post to provide you with some helpful tips to help you choose the perfect pearl necklace and examples of great value beautiful necklaces, that can be purchased safely in the UK with secure consumer protection and return guarantees.

One of the first things to decide upon is the correct length of necklace, we are not all the same size and shape, and your choice of necklace needs to reflect this.

Pearl Necklaces

The picture above gives a rough indication of where a necklace might fall on an ‘average’ person, but of course we are not all average, if you’ve a larger bust or necksize you will need to increase the length in inches to achieve a similar drop.

One of the next questions to consider is size of pearl, and our rough guidelines are as follows:

  • Choker Length (16″ and under) – we recommend small & medium sized pearls  5-7mm
  • Princess Length (17-19″) – most sizes of pearl will look great
  • Matinee Length (20-26″) – we would recommend 6mm and upwards
  • Opera Length (26-36″) – we would recommend a minimum of 6mm pearls, but also caution in choosing pearls larger than 10mm as the weight of pearls vs silk string strength may be too great (note we would make Coin Pearls an exception to this rule as they are flatter and hence lighter).
  • Rope Length (36″+) – choose medium sized pearls

Pearl Necklaces, examples below –

Double Strand Pearl Choker 6mm Pearls – 15″ – £124.95

Pearl Choker

Princess Length Pearl Necklace 8-9mm Pearls – 17.5″ – £89.95

Princess Length Pearl Necklace

Matinee  Length Graduated Pearl Necklace 3-8mm Pearls – 20″ – £99.95

Graduated Pearl Necklace

Opera Length Pearl Necklace 6mm Pearls – 34″ – £149.95

Opera Length Pearl Necklace

Pearl Rope Length Necklace 8-9mm Pearls – 54″ – £49.95

Long Pearl Necklace

Types of pearl include Akoya Pearls (Saltwater) and high quality, South Sea Pearls (Saltwater) very high quality, and Freshwater Pearls (Freshwater) and of increasingly good quality.

Within the category of Freshwater Pearls you find the classic round pearls, but also some more exotic variants:

  • Baroque Pearls – a tactile assymetric shaped natural pearl

Baroque Pearl Necklace 10-12mm Pearls – £124.95

Baroque Pearl Necklace

  • Biwa Pearls – an oblong Pearl, originally linked to Lake Biwa in Japan

Edison Pearls / Ming Pearls

Edison Pearls – A Revolution in Large Pearl Necklaces

Until recently freshwater pearls were solely made up of nacre, the growth of the pearl being triggered by inserting a sliver of mantle into the mollusc. In contrast Saltwater Pearls, such as South Sea, Tahitian and Akoya Pearls, had their pearl growth triggered by inserting a bead into the mollusc. The result of these differing methods was that bead nucleated Salt Water pearls could create far larger, round pearls, commanding higher prices.

Edison Pearls

Around 4 years ago research in China perfected the process of bead nucleating freshwater pearls, creating large pearls, up to 15mm, with a beautiful metallic lustre, plus much rounder and smoother than previous attempts. This new class of pearl is routinely known as Edison Pearls, or Ming Pearls. They represent great quality and value for money being used to create stunning large pearl necklaces.

Edison Pearl Necklace

Our gorgeous pearl necklace features 13-14mm white near round Edison Pearls (Ming Pearls) with a stunning metallic lustre, and is 17” in length. Typically pearl necklaces of this size can be hugely expensive, however we have this necklace on offer at £379.95, versus an RRP of £499.95.

Ming Pearls

In addition we’ve a beautiful pastel pink necklace featuring large Edison Pearls with a 14ct gold clasp for just £374.95

Ming Pearls

Or if you want a really large pearl these silvery white 13-15mm Edison Pearls make a stunning statement necklace with a sterling silver filigree clasp for just £179.95

Our range of Edison Pearl (Ming Pearl) Necklaces is constantly expanding and if you cannot find what you are looking for on our site then give one of our Pearl Jewellery team a call on 0800 699 0119 and they will be happy to help you create the perfect necklace.

Long Pearl Necklaces – Opera Length Pearl Necklaces & Rope Length Pearl Strings

Long pearl necklaces are a chic and versatile item of jewelleryLong Pearl Necklaces

Long strings are generally defined in two terms:

  • Opera Length – typically 28″ to 36′ and falling just below the bust line. A great evening wear accessory, but also a fashionable item for less formal occasions when it can be worn either double looped, or twisted and joined with a pearl shortener.

Opera Length Pearl Necklace

 

  • Rope Length – over 40″ and falling around the waistline. A stylish statement piece that can be worn twisted, using a pearl shortener, double looped or triple looped, or even knotted.

Rope Length Pearl Necklace

Pearl Necklace Shortener

Long strings of pearls are as fashionable in 2016 as they were in the 1920’s with fashion houses and celebrities experimenting with new ways to use both Opera Length and Rope Length Pearl Necklaces to create both stylish and dramatic looks.

At Scintilla Fine Jewellery we are big fans of these long strings, we’ve even been known to use our long strings to create gorgeous multi strand bracelets, and our Pearl Jewellery Online store features both classic pearl styles and unique modern designs.

Long Pearl Necklaces can actually represent great value, as being longer and able to slip over the head the expense of a gold or silver clasp is saved.

 

Rope Length Pearl Necklace long black string

We would love to see your pictures of innovative looks you’ve created using long strings of pearls, and we’ll also keep you updated as we see celebrities using these pearl necklaces in interesting ways, such as Jennifer Lawrence wearing her pearls backwards.

Long String Pearl Necklace
