Like any other jewelry, pearl earrings represent your personal statement of style.
Pearl stud earrings are a classic jewel that can be worn on all occasions. They are perfect with classic suit, dress and casual jeans. If you are buying pearls as a gift item, these are often a good, safe choice. If you want a present that looks a bit more opulent, choose a gold South Sea or Tahitian stud that is set with precious stones.
Pearl dangling earrings tend to work well for evenings. They also complement short necks and work well with oval, round, or heart shaped faces. The length of pearl earrings creates a subliminal image of a longer face. Long dangling pearl earrings are especially flattering to tall women and women with long hair. If you are buying for a gift, a straight drop is always a good choice. (Please see the photo of the gold South Seas above.) Again, Tahitian and South Sea earrings are a wonderful choice.
Pearl earrings with white gold settings are more popular than yellow gold settings. When choosing pearl earrings, look for pearls that are lustrous, round and clean. If pearl earrings
are set with diamonds, look for diamonds with sparkle and brilliance.
