Pearls Comeback for 2008

  • Pin it

So are those pearls back on track? I know Sarah Jessica Parker’s moves are awaited and followed. When I saw her difficult-to-qualify-all-black-outfit and long strands of pearls I wondered if this was sending a message other than “I received these shoes for free, I couldn’t offend the sponsor and I matched them with the pearls so I won’t go style suicidal”.

Later on, internet was invaded by young Ashlee Simpson wearing the famous Chanel strands matching them to a casual skinny jean-t-shirt-high-heeled-sandals outfit. Hard to believe, but Ashlee pulled it off far better than SJP. Then again, we couldn’t overlook a classic dressed Katherine Heigl with her pearls perfectly retro or Nicky Hilton sporting them for some time now. It was never an actual question of pearls actually getting off-fashion, but it’s always good to know if they’ll come in full package with the 60s trend or if they make that extra too-much of fashion revival.

Pearls Comeback in Fashion 2008

Did you ever gave up on wearing your pearl strand?

Never. Although I do only wear fake-pearls alas. I can’t afford real ones. But I don’t care. And no one around me cares.
I do cherish some real pearl earrings which once did belong to my grandmother. The design is not for every day-wear. Beautiful though for special occassions.

never… pearls will NEVER be out of style and i wear pearls most everyday… if not a necklace then earrings. they’re just perfect for completing any outfit if you’re going for a chic but simple look.

I love pearls! *sigh* If only I could afford real ones.

I like pearls too. I even have a few strands myself (they’re not natural ;) ) and still I dream of the Chanel one… I remember seeing it in “The Devil Wears Prada” and finding it perfect. Even so, I once heard someone saying that natural pearls bring misfortune. I don’t believe in such things, but did you ever heard about it?

kpriss, of course I would love to own a real pearls. I’ve been often in jewelry shops to look and touch them. The difference is noticeable.
Pearls bring misfortune? I’ve never heard that! Certainly not to my grandmother she became 94 and was a fun and very open minded woman until the end. Strong and fierce. She was a working class woman so her pearl earrings meant the world to her. She could conquer anything and she was proud for what she was! So no, therefore I can not believe this story…….

[…] at least 3 necklaces adorning her dress. All different. Not long ago, I said she was reinstating the pearl-strand in pole trend position. Now I’m compelled to say that she’s bringing all her jewelry case into […]

Join the happy club, Laura! We’re all thrilled because such beautiful and classic accessory is again highly appreciated.

Adriana, your story (your grandmother’s story, in fact) is very emotional and you have every reason to cherish those earrings! Wish I would have inherited such beautiful memories too! Anyway I went down the “misfortune” line and I found this explanation :
“It is believed that cracks and ridges in a Pearl might be injurious to ones health. The Pearls should be moonlike shinning without dents and blemishes. They should be spotless, compact and perfectly round in shape. It is believed that dents cause loss of wealth and any wavy thin line on its surface brings misfortune. Pearl without luster shortens life.”

Those ancient ones were really exigent with the gemstones it seems! And they lead strange marketing campaigns too! Alluring people with perfection and assuring them misfortune if else!

[…] (and because of the Devil Wears Prada the movie) I fell completely, madly, deeply in love with that Chanel pearls necklace. Being the rightful interpretation of my pearl vision, I remained faithful to it. Until this came […]
