It goes without saying that a wedding is one of the most important events in a person’s life. With all eyes on you and your spouse-to-be, there is pressure for everything to be perfect for not just you and your guests, but your partner as well. From the venue where you will exchange wedding rings and the decorations that will help set the scene, all the way to the song you and your partner will share your first dance to, some people have thought about this momentous day and all the little bells and whistles they would like to include in it-pretty much since they were a child. Long before you will even have a sparkling engagement ring on that finger. 

But if there is one detail that brides and grooms-to-be have thought about more than anything, it's what outfit and accessories you are to wear on the day. When it is your turn to say I do, it is your chance to feel like royalty and be the centre of attention and nothing helps you achieve this better than the gown you wear and the jewellery you choose to emphasise this. For centuries, a bride has been considered the epitome of grace and beauty, and we believe that the bridal jewellery that they choose to wear on their big day should be nothing short of that.

While many brides nowadays may wane from tradition and get experimental with everything from bold splashes of colour to funky statement earrings, others are eager to be as classic as possible with timeless bridal pieces such as elegant tennis bracelets, and dainty diamond stud earrings as well as even pearl jewellery. From subtle brooches to sophisticated pearl necklaces and pearl earrings, there is something so incredibly graceful about pearls. A Hollywood mainstay that is also lauded by royals, it is no surprise that pearls have been given the nickname ‘Queen of the Gems’. Nor is it a surprise that many brides are choosing elegant pearl accessories to rock on their big day, particularly pearl drop earrings. 

Exuding glamour and sophistication, read on as we unpack all the reasons why elegant pearl drop earrings are the perfect bridal accessory.

7 Reasons Why Pearl Drop Earrings Are The Perfect Bridal Accessory:

1. They Are Understated, Yet Glamorous

Arguably, one thing that has drawn people to pearls over the years is their origin. Unlike other gemstones that are retrieved from the earth’s crust, pearls form in the ocean inside a living organism. But this isn’t the only way that pearls differ from other gemstones. While their colour can vary from a light blush colour to a rich, iridescent tone, pearls have a somewhat more subtle tone and therefore appear slightly understated than other gems.

Whether you wear a traditional gown, something more modern, romantic or very boho-chic, rest assured that an elegant pair of pearl drop earrings will bring the right amount of glamour to your look and will complement your outfit perfectly.

2. They Don’t Take Away From The Gown

While accessories help the whole look to come together, everyone knows that weddings are all about the dress. The wedding dress is basically the guest of honour at your wedding and so you want to do your best to accentuate it, that naturally includes wearing accessories that don’t take too much attention away from your dress and cause your look to appear too busy and overly cluttered.

Owing to their colour and size, drop earrings adorned with pearls aren't one to become the centre of attention on your big day. Instead, they perfectly highlight the bride’s beauty and their unique style. Regardless if they are gold or silver, pearls won't shift the spotlight from other aspects of a bridal look,  like the dress, hair, or most importantly, the features and face of the bride herself.

Despite being seen as quite classic and traditional, pearl drop earrings are so adaptable that they will bring vibrance to any type of vibrant look. From classic white to modern off-white, romantic blush pink and even daring black, no matter what your gown will be it is certain that your pearl earrings will suit it.

Pearl drop earrings can even be worn to bring out the undertones of your dress.

If you’re wearing a dress that is pure white, pair it with silver earrings adorned with pearls to complement the cool undertones of your outfit.

4. They’re The Perfect Updo (and Downdo) Earring

The bridal hairdo that you choose for your wedding will directly impact the accessories that you rock on the day. Sure, stud earrings look fabulous with a sleek bun or a Grecian-inspired hairdo with loose tendrils hanging down, but if you were to opt for something like old Hollywood curls or relaxed beachy waves-you may find it difficult for your studs to remain centre stage. With drop earrings, including pearl drop earrings, you don’t have this issue as these earrings are generally larger and won’t be hidden away by your hair. If anything, they will be emphasised by your updo whether you choose an upstyle or a downstyle.

Updos, by their very nature, draw attention to your earrings. This is why they are also a great option for brides who may be sporting a gown that boasts an intricate neckline that doesn’t allow for accessories such as necklaces and pendants. With their subtle yet timeless appeal that will stand out regardless of their design, pearl drop earrings help bring the whole look together, including your hairdo.

Dating back to 2300 BC, pearls are officially recognised as one of the oldest gemstones in the world and have long been regarded as a status symbol. Presented as gifts to members of the Ancient Chinese Royal Family and highly prized by Roman Emperor Julius Caesar who prohibited anyone but royalty and dignitaries from owning them, pearls are thought to represent everything from nobility and wisdom to romance, and virtue as well as incorruptibility.
