Pearls
Fashion

Jewellery: back to classics!

By Berlioz Deborah
06/11/2008

Pearls and yellow gold are fashionable again. These two materials, which have, seemingly, been out of favour with creators since the '80s, can now be seen adorning stars and models alike. In fact, it's hard to understand how pearls and gold, two things that instantly add class to an outfit, ever went out of fashion...

If you are going for traditional understated class, then white pearls are probably the best. These are simple, sober, and go with everything. A long chain of white pearls, one or two rows, is usually enough to immediately pull together an outfit. Beware, it is easy to go over board with this look. To stay on the right side of fashion avoid matching earings unless you are going for the chelsea twin-set look. If you really can't forgo the earings, then opt for very simple ones, with just one pearl and without any ornaments.

Pearls are also beautiful as part of more sophisticated jewellery. The best match is white pearls with grey gold. Go for a set of necklace and earrings such as the ones from Chanel.

And do not hesitate to be a little more original! Some jewellery, such as the "Comete" collection from Chanel, mixes marvellously different kinds of pearls, gems and lovely items. Perfect if you want to be the queen of the night...

And finally, why should you confine yourself to black and white? Pearls have a great advantage; you can find them in a wide range of colours. In addition, they can be perfectly mixed with some coloured gems, or with yellow gold. However, be careful with the coloured pearls; tawdriness is often lying in wait... So, our first advice would be: wear coloured pearls ONLY if you're wearing a fully black outfit. A coloured bag, or belt, which matches the pearls, can be good, but nothing more. And, as always, less is more. So, we would recommend you to marry it with a necklace and/or a ring for instance. Avoid  wearing too much jewellery. It's good to be original, but avoid at all cost the Christmas tree look...

If you want to prefer yellow gold, we would advise you to stay simple. Uncluttered jewellery is particularly classy, just like this unique round necklace from Tiffany & Co or this delightful bracelet from Boucheron.

You can, if we so wish, try some more original jewellery. Something fine and delicate is always preferable, such as this bracelet from Fred. Above all, avoid the too ornate jewellery, with a lot of gems for instance. That is not elegance, just bad taste... However the mixing of different types of gold, such as this necklace, also from Fred, is more than welcome.

A very big gold necklace can be stunning. In order to avoid looking like an American gangster, your big gold necklace should be made up of very thin chains, like this one from Givenchy. And it should be worn only with a very simple or black outfit.

  what about yellow gold? It is not only fashionable for jewellery this year. The creators are also using it for shoes and outfits. But beware! Even though gold sandals are an item that every girl should have in her wardrobe, the all-in-one look is not so easy to pull off. To be approached with caution. the Givenchy look is not for the faint hearted...
