In the past pearls had a certain country-club connotation about them, you know, the kind of club where only the elite are allowed to attend. But nowadays pearl jewellery has become as approachable as any gemstone in our armoury, with their modern-day transformation into everyday pieces with an essence of elegance. When looking for an everyday option, opt for a simple design that can be worn as a layering piece with your go-to stack, like a single pearl hung on a dainty gold chain, gold hoop or twisted band.
