Freshwater Pearls Bring the Posh

Pearls are classic and always right on trend. They can be worn in a simple knotted pattern. Or combine them with another element for some flair.

Pearls come in a rainbow of color options. From classic cream, to mystical mauves, deep olive tones and glistening coppers and golds, you're sure to find an element of current meeting classic.

What do I do with freshwater pearls? 

Try our vintage Haskell pearlized glass leaf pendants, or large vintage 24k gold plated matte lilies, or sea glass square spacer beads, or vintage antiqued copper cable chain, or whatever your mind can dream up. Options are endless!


Ashley Bunting, our staff designer, created this stunning Victorian necklace by mixing pearls and vintage metals. The luminescence of cream pearls plays nicely off the dark brass and antiqued metals. The wire-linked sections at the front of the necklace add movement, depth, and interest.
