Queen of the gems, pearls have historically captured the imagination of the rich and famous, and been an inspiration for myth and majesty for thousands of years. Worn famously by generations of leading ladies from Cleopatra, to Elizabeth 1, Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and recently Rihanna, today pearls are no less of a sought after gem, and a fashion icon in their own right.
Harvested and cultivated in the lakes and rivers of South East Asia from freshwater mollusks, each individual pearl that features in a Glam Confidential piece of jewellery is painstakingly hand-selected from thousands, having been meticulously examined for quality, size, shape, lustre and colour. The pearls are then matched, drilled, strung and fastened with silver hallmarked clasps, to create luxurious pieces that flatter any outfit.
Glam Confidential’s pearl collection features both white and coloured gems, classic round pearls, exotic rice shaped and Baroque pearls, as well as more eclectic irregular shaped gems. These are crafted into a wide range of lengths and designs including collars, ropes and multiple strands, which can be worn looped, knotted or layered.
A simple single string looks perfect with almost anything, and will even add a touch of modern chic to jeans and a t-shirt. Combined with a classic suit a multiple strand pearl necklace commands an air of authority, yet when teamed with an evening dress will add allure and femininity.
The luxurious pearls scarfs are a real show stealer, and will take centre-stage in the fashion stakes, especially if teamed with understated black dress, or when worn over the shoulder pearls are a fabulous way to accentuate a backless dress.
