3. But it isn’t all about your outfit.  You need to make sure that you also pair them with the right accessories.  Remember that pearls are quite distinctive so they don’t always complement other pieces of jewelry.

Instead think about wearing a low cut top or nothing at all underneath your jacket.  Then zip it up to a point just below where the pearl on your pendant necklace sits.  This will help to bring people’s focus in on the necklace.

2. Team With A Crew Neck T-Shirt

Go for the more vintage looking t-shirts if you can.  Also stick with one that is going to really accentuate the colour of the pearl in your necklace.  For example if you intend to wear a white pearl pendant necklace make sure that you wear a black, grey or dark blue t-shirt.
