Each year, “must-have” fashion trends come… and go. Clear plastic clothing? So last year. Furry sandals? Yawn. Rainbow tie-dye? Maybe if you’re 16. But, freshwater pearl earrings? That’s one jewelry box staple that will last forever!
And, every woman I know owns at least one pair – whether they are simple studs, embellished with gemstones, or set in precious metal.
My favorites are the freshwater pearl earrings, shown. These freshwater pearls by Ash’s Choice are simple, but elegant. And, they are my new go-to for work or an evening out.
The sophisticated design includes a beautiful freshwater or baroque pearl suspended from a gold-tone disk. I love them for summer because they have a vaguely nautical feel, without appearing trite.
And, they are so comfortable. Even though they are dangles (about 1” long combined pearl and stud), the disk hides a sturdy post with a secure back. So, you get the swingy look of a dangle earring, with the comfort and ease of a stud.
Freshwater pearls are different from the more traditional round Akoya, South Sea, or Tahitian pearls because they are actually harvested from freshwater lakes and ponds instead of the ocean. And, they are available in an incredibly wide range of sizes, irregular shapes, and a spectrum of colors. In fact, that variation is one of the things I love best. Each one is a unique work of art.
These freshwater pearl earrings arrive in a lovely gift box. So, they are ready for gift giving whether you are looking for a perfect bridesmaid gift, birthday present, or just a simple token to say “I love you.” Retail: $12.99
