Long gone are the days where the word ‘antique’ is an insult. Nowadays, the older and more retro your look is, the better. Nothing says style like a piece of jewelry that may have been inherited from a well-to-do grandmother. But that piece of jewelry doesn’t necessarily have to be a real heirloom: many modern jewelry pieces reflect a stylish heritage, reminding us of days gone by, while still adhering to modern style rules. And pearls are just the jewels to do this for you. They are simple and elegant, and therefore often used to create a vintage, retro look while still retaining their modern edge – making them the perfect gift. What’s more, pearls symbolize fertility and are associated with rare, precious things (just think of phrases such as ‘pearls of wisdom’).
So why not celebrate Mother’s Day with a piece of antique style pearl jewelry? It may let your mom’s mind wander to a nostalgic memory. What it definitely will do, is tell her that she is precious to you and make her feel beautiful.
