Modern Pearl Jewellery. Are Pearls still in Style?

If you are still thinking of a simple round pearl necklace, let me reassure you pearls have come a long way since then. There are times when you are looking for a classic style but let me show you the type of modern pearls that are now available.

Now we have an explosion of amazing shapes. Keshi pearls are delicate and petal shaped, then you have the big bold meteor pearls. Even the stick shaped biwa pearls have branched out ( sorry couldn’t resist)) and you get the birds foot shaped biwa. The coin shaped pearls are lovely flat cultured freshwater pearls that can add size but not weight. A consideration when wearing statement pearl earrings.

But don’t discount the more traditional round, oval or baroque as you can still find some gorgeous modern designs. Bish Bosh Becca has added gold vermeil initials and words to the traditional baroque pearl choker to create wonderful modern pearl jewellery. At least I think so, and I think our customers do too.

Think of a colour and you can find a pearl in that shade. Moreover, they look great paired with various gemstones or swarovski crystals.

Pearl jewellery is becoming a part of our everyday life. Pearls are definately having a “fashion moment”.  They are becoming more and more popular.  Moreover, we witness an interesting phenomenon.  The younger generation are falling in love with pearls!  Pearl jewellery for the millennials!? It is a very pleasant surprise that younger women choose to wear pearls.

This is really no surprise if you look at how pearls are being used at the moment.

There are probably more reasons for pearls being so popular. To start with, a pearl is a beautiful gemstone. It is the only gemstone that grows in a living being, a mollusk. This makes pearls, organic gems, very attractive because they are natural. Because of this Pearls are unique among gemstones because they don’t arise from the depths of the earth but from the sea. They require no special cutting or polishing to enhance their beauty. It is the lustre or nacre on the pearls that make them shimmer so beautifully.

Therefore compared to other gemstones, they are quite affordable! This makes pearl jewellery attractive for not only younger customers but everyone.  Frequently, the younger generation is not looking for “classic, elegant and timeless” pieces of jewellery. As a result, they don’t buy or wear traditional and conservative pieces. They are looking for contemporary jewellery with new fresh designs. The modern shaped pearls provide this.

You do need to take care of your pearls. The acid in perspiration can gradually damage pearls, so run a dry or damp cloth over pearls after you’ve worn them next to your skin. Be careful not to let perfume or other chemicals come into contact with your pearls, and keep them away from extreme heat (ie don’t use a hair dryer when wearing pearl jewelry or leave your jewellery in the sun).  If you follow those guidelines your pearls will stay gorgeous for decades and achieve heirloom status.

Not your grandmother’s pearls, but they are certainly ones that she would have wanted. A nod to beautiful future heirlooms.

All these designs can be found on Bish Bosh Becca. Don’t forget we can also create a bespoke piece of jewellery for you.

I am starting up upload videos for all Bish Bosh Becca’s jewellery onto Youtube if you would like to see the jewellery in more detail.

Minimony & Twilight. Find ideas for your intimate boho home wedding

I have been very lax about showing you some wonderful mini elopement shoots. Maybe, like a lot of people, last year may have overwhelmed me a bit. So I am going to rectify this now. As mini weddings or elopement weddings are becoming more popular, for obvious reason. I also get to show you some gorgeous modern pearl jewellery that I hope will inspire your choice of wedding jewellery.

This wedding shoot shows how you can have a romantic modern boho intimate home garden ceremony. It will give you inspiration and ideas for those touches of luxe with a cool party vibe. Turning your outdoor space into a wedding haven for your intimate nuptials with lots of fun twists. So you can create your perfect celebration.

Its the perfect way to celebrate love and marriage in light of the pandemic with a festival chill out zone with Moroccan inspiration in neutral tones. There are no rights and wrongs to you creating your perfect day.

Just because you are having a small intimate wedding, doesn’t mean you have to be any thing less that your fabulous best!

This is one reason I created a new range of versatile modern pearl jewellery. Lariats can be worn in many different ways, so they are the ultimate versatile necklace. I then decided to create some statement pearl drop earrings to match the lariat.

For the second more relaxed look, I teamed the short dress with modern pearl jewellery from my Orion range, a 2 strand chain necklace with pearls and an option backdrop attachement, matching pearl and chain bracelet and although not worn here there is also a matching pair of long pearl drop earrings. Beautiful mix and match wedding jewellery for that boho vibe.

If you are having a small ceremony, with a big party once we are allowed to. Then your wedding jewellery will see you through both events.

Even though this might not be the wedding you have set your heart on, there are benefits. Plus you can have a big celebration when we are able to meet again. For your micro wedding you just have to make sure the important people are there. In some instances this will be just you, your intended and the celebrant.

You don’t have to worry about anyone driving later.Just kick off your shoes and enjoy
You can even slip into a more relaxed number in the comfort of your own home.

The best thing about a garden wedding….
Is that you can stay as long as you like. No one is going to ask you to leave. Conversely you can also slip away early!

You can choose to have as many traditional aspects of a wedding as you want.
Its your day so do it your way. Who said you can’t have invitations or menu cards for your initimate celebration. If you want them then you have them. Wear converses, go bare foot the choice is entirely upto you. There are no rules and regulations, except for the covid ones at the moment, but these too will pass. Hopefully in the near future.

One thing doing these wedding shoots has shown me, is that how a good celebrant can really make your day. He or she can add the perfect touch to your special day.
Such as creating a sand jar. This symbolic act acknowledging the importance of the family bond formed by the marriage that is being celebrated. Because of this it is a lovely way of including all your children and joining them together into one family.

This wonderful intimate wedding shoot was the brain child of Keenda from the rest of the wonderful suppliers who helped bring her dream to life are
