Many different cultures around the world wear pearls, they are, after all, officially the world’s oldest gem and with their timeless appeal, it is not hard to see why so many people love to wear pearls. Ancient Chinese civilizations believed that wearing pearls protected a person from fire and dragons and were presented as gifts to royalty as early as 2300B BC. Pearls have been popular with our own royal family, with Queen Elizabeth II, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge all choosing to showcase their pearls over the Jubilee weekend to celebrate the Queen’s 70th year on the throne.
In other cultures, pearls have been associated with chastity and modesty, but also a status symbol. Long before the discovery of oil, the pearl trade was a source of wealth. Pearls have been an important trade commodity since Roman times and over time the demand for beautiful, intricate pearl jewellery grew and has remained a favourite ever since.
Traditional and elegant, these pearl dangle earrings are a sophisticated jewellery choice that would look graceful paired with a classic little black dress. These vintage style pearl drop studs will give your look an old-Hollywood feel.
The popularity of pearls in Western Europe was due to the escalating demand from ladies of nobility and royalty as a sign of their status and class. By the 19th Century, women of wealth wore elaborate pearl earrings, necklaces, pearl bracelets and brooches. Until the 20th Century, divers would risk their lives to harvest pearls as the only way to collect them was by diving to depths of up to 100ft. Freshwater pearls were easier to collect, but due to the rarity and difficulty in obtaining them, pearls were often reserved for royalty. Pearls became increasingly fashionable again around the 1980s and more modern designs have been found in jewellery ever since.
These pretty pearl knot studs give a classic design a modern twist. It is often timeless pieces like these precious pearl earrings that stay desirable through any fashions and trends. Choosing a classic pair of knot pearl studs will ensure you always have a go to pair of stunning pearls to carry you throughout the years.
It is difficult to pinpoint who ‘discovered’ pearls as they have been used for centuries by many different civilizations. Pearls are often referred to as the oldest gem worn by people. It is possible that they were first found by ancient peoples who were searching the shores for food and came across them in oysters. Pearls have been prized by Romans and Egyptians who used them in decorative items dating as far back as the 5th Century BC, however, Chinese records mention them even earlier!

In the 1920s, fashion saw a big overhaul with fashion designers such as Coco Chanel changing the way women dressed forever. Her iconic choice of jewellery and design became popular and still influences people today. When Japanese cultured pearls were introduced to the market around 1928, pearl jewellery became more accessible for people. Beaded and pearl necklaces became synonymous with the 1920s flapper girls, which inspires the way people dress even today.

Sterling silver pearl drop earrings will never go out of fashion and these intricate and elaborate studs will be sure to steal the limelight for many occasions to come.
“A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” –Coco Chanel
Author, Emma Baxter-Wright, described how Coco Chanel found pearls to be flattering. She wrote about Chanel saying, “The luminosity of pearls capture the light, she felt, and gave a flattering glow to the skin and eyes.” Coco Chanel famously said many quotes about her love of pearls, including “Lace is one of the most wonderful imitations of nature. But pearls are perfect for every occasion.”
