Pearls Are a Girl’s New Best Friend

Marilyn Monroe’s famous song from her classic movie, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” boasted that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” and this catchy lyric resonated with us through out the years. Sure, we can’t argue with an iconic figure that diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  However, pearls are steadily gaining momentum and slowly edging out diamonds as a girl’s new best friend.

As you can see, pearl was epitomized in this famous painting, “Girl With a Pearl Earring” in 17th century by Dutch painter, Johannes Vermeer, as a symbol of elegance, grace and beauty. Famous ladies like Jackie Kennedy also favored pearls as her go-to piece when it came to accessorize her outfits. By incorporated pearls as part of her wardrobe, Jackie always looked regal, beautiful and stunning in my opinion.

Some people deemed pearls as matronly or old fashion, however, the Duchess of Cambridge modernized and created a contemporary feel with pearl. By pairing classic pearl earrings with this vibrant red coat, Kate’s style reflected freshness and effortless.

Even Rihanna opted pearl earrings to express a soft and feminine side of her in this picture.

At the end of the day, even Marilyn ditched her diamonds once a while and chose pearls as her new best friend.  What do you think, my fashion peeps.

  1. My grandmother and mother always said pearls were the one gemstone that needed to be worn, not shut away in a box. If they are tucked away ‘for safe keeping’ they can loose their luster, but just take and wear them a few times, and they will once again ‘bloom.’ Thanks for a lovely article. I’m getting my pearls out now!
