Summer is almost here and that means Wedding Season is coming!! And where there's a wedding, there's pearls.
Brides and pearls go together like peanut butter and jelly ... The love story between brides and their pearls goes back centuries, stretching back to Roman times, and ALL around the world.
This post is a celebration of brides from all cultures and traditions, and it goes without saying, but their pearls too. How women everywhere have incorporated the incomparable pearl into their bridal attire and ceremonies.
Pearls represent purity, chastity, love and truth to cultures everywhere.
American and European brides often incorporate pearls in a myriad of ways into their wedding attire. Whether it is a pearl-embellished wedding dress, a pearl and crystal hair piece, a simple pendant and earrings or more formal Single or Double-Strand Akoya Pearl Necklace, pearls are a mainstay for the modern Western bride.
African brides also have very diverse traditional garb worn on their wedding day depending on the country. Many brides traditionally wear a hair-covering turban, bright, colorful jewelry made of corals and other precious materials and colorful gowns.
Modern brides are also incorporating the white wedding dress to beautiful effect. I am adoring her pearl accented flower crown.
Traditional Indian jewelry is very ornate and elaborate, with pearls, precious colored gemstones, diamonds and intricately wrought 24K Gold settings. Pearls can be worn as Necklaces, Earrings, pearl-embellished clothing, Bracelets and more.
Brides in China often wear a red dress (said to bring good luck) embroidered with a Phoenix and a Dragon in gold thread. Pearls are generally worn in elaborate hair pieces and combs.
