Pearl Drop Earrings for Wedding Jewelry
Why do brides wear pearls?
First, let’s talk about why pearls are a classic choice. Why does the bride wear pearls? According to Greek history, ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and unrivaled beauty. The Greeks also believed pearls were good luck in marriage, promoting marital harmony.
While pearls are a classic choice for the bride, that doesn’t mean you have to wear them on your wedding day. Today, many brides are adopting a more modern approach to pearls. Instead of a traditional strand of pearls, for instance, we’re seeing more dainty pearl necklaces or “floating” pearls on a gold chain. Instead of pearl studs (although we do see these quite often), brides may select pearl drop earrings in a short drop or longer chandelier style. The most popular pearl drop earrings right now have crystals rhinestones mixed in for maximum sparkle.
Where to buy pearl drop earrings
There are various places to buy pearl drop earrings for your wedding, but searching for hours online (and not being totally confident you’ll love what you find) can be a real time-waster. As one recommendation, we’ve been ooh-ing and aah-ing over the earrings over at Tigerlilly Couture for several years now. Not only is Mandy super helpful and easy to work with, but her jewelry (and her review history) speaks for itself! Check out these hand-picked pearl drop earrings we spotted in her shop and you’ll see what we mean.
