Enjoy the Natural Beauty of Pearl Bracelets
The pearl holds the unique distinction of being the only precious gemstone that comes from an animal instead of the earth. While no one knows exactly when humans harvested the first pearl, it's very likely hunters and gathers found them when they were consuming oysters for food. Since then, people have harvested pearls for thousands of years and treasured them for their luster and beauty.
The Makings of a Pearl
A natural pearl forms in an oyster when a foreign object, such as a piece of a shell, lodges itself inside the oyster's body. To fight the foreign object, the oyster will release a smooth substance to cover it. After layers and layers of this substance coat the object, it turns into a pearl. White and black are the most popular pearl colors. However, you can also find pearls in nearly every shade known to man, including gold, pink, blue, green, silver, and even iridescent.
Elegant Pearl Bracelets
If you'd like to add the sophistication of pearl jewelry to your wardrobe, pearl bracelets are a great place to start. Pearl bracelets come in a variety of styles. If you prefer a more modern look, consider a bangle bracelet. You can also find classic beaded bracelets that come with a single row or multiple rows of pearls. For a comfortable style, choose one of the stretch bracelets. Plus, whether you like silver or gold, you can find pearl bracelets accented with either precious metal to match the rest of your jewelry.
Pairing With Other Gemstones
Pearls also look lovely when paired with other gemstones. For a striking look, consider getting a bracelet with white pearls and black onyx. When you need something timeless and classic, you can never go wrong with pearls and diamonds. There are plenty of other unique gemstone combinations, including turquoise, amethyst, and quartz. Additionally, with the variety of pearl colors available, you can get some stunning colors in your bracelets without having to pair the pearls with other gemstones. You'll find everything from a stunning blue pearl to a unique chocolate pearl that will turn plenty of heads.
