Some mothers like bigger pearls

A traditional pearl necklace has always been considered a popular and sophisticated accessory with many clothing styles. According to Thilo Bruckner, a jeweler from a German association of jewelers, pearl necklaces today require a modern and contemporary style so it could easily target younger focus groups, by adding segments of gold, diamond, and other noble metals. Statistical data reveals that there is a connection between the size of pearls and their owners. Bruckner reveals that younger women rather wear the pearls that are 2-4 millimeters wide, while older and senior women go larger, approximately from 8 millimeters in width and more.

Inspired by the upcoming mother’s day and celebration of women in general, we remembered the biographical movie about Margaret Thatcher “Iron Lady”, with the lead role played by Meryl Strep. From this movie, one particular scene took our attention. At the moment when Margaret accepted to become the Prime Minister of Great Britain, she decided to allow a team of media experts to change her complete style, from her hair, hat and even her accent.

However, she refused to give up on her pearl necklace which she got as a gift from her husband after giving birth to their twin sons. In addition to wearing it as a symbol of her motherhood and strength, it can also be interpreted as an omen to her rise on the social ladder. There are many family stories that share a tradition from one generation to the next. Some women, like Margaret,  never gave up on their symbols of motherhood.

Everlasting and fragile- just like that motherly figure in your life

Pearls are and were considered a symbol of femininity, but are also the only type of jewelry for women who were in mourning and wearing black, allowed to wear, as they also represent tears. If they are not worn and not maintained, they will become pale, lose their shine and become yellow.

To choose the perfect cheap pearl necklace (or pendant design) you can think about the clothing style of your mother. If they like wearing:

–    Angular neckline wardrobes, go with a pearl necklace design that can complement the semi-casual style of the wardrobe

–    Scoops and crew necks, with bibs or collars, can go well with necklaces that have more volume and several rows so they can emphasize the neckline

–    V neck wardrobes obviously go best with V-shaped necklaces

–    Boat neck tops go best with classic long beads

–    Sweetheart necklines are easily complemented by single strand beads or pendants

–    Open collar or strapless necklines best go with chokers or short pendants and necklaces that will lay on your body line
