Pearls With Pairie
Growing up, it was always a custom in my family to receive a meaningful piece of jewelry for a grand occasion or special accomplishment. When I was eleven, about to perform piano in my first talent show (yikes…), my parents gave me a silver pendant engraved with the patron saint of small kindnesses. When I turned seventeen, my father gave me my first real pearl necklace. And when I graduated from high school, my sister handed me a heart-shaped Tiffany’s necklace. Jewelry has always been an integral element of my self-expression. It’s an unspoken medium of presentation, decoration, and self-definition.
My latest infatuation comes from a brand called Pairie. I discovered them on Instagram a couple of weeks ago and now constantly find myself perusing through their website in my free time. Their dedication to quality, elegance, and opulence is remarkable, and it was refreshing to see a brand with such a clear vision for their product presentation. You can even rent their jewelry through their online site, which is one my favorite qualities to see in a fashion brand.
The earrings I received were pearl drops topped with delicate Austrian crystals. I’ve worn them nearly every day since, as they easily match everything I own (they’re also almost identical to my mother’s wedding earrings, which was such a sentimental surprise to me)! Pearls are such an empowering, classic gemstone and quite obviously, my favorite accessory to dress up an outfit. I’ve linked my pair of earrings below, as well as some of my favorite other picks from their website!
