To me, jewelry isn’t just something I wear. It’s representative of my experiences, milestones, and landmarks. When I look in my jewelry box, I don’t see pieces of metal and precious stones. I see the necklace I wore on our wedding day, the bracelet I wore when we got engaged, the pairs of earrings I wore during our time in Japan, and the necklace I bought while shopping in Paris. That’s why I see every new piece of jewelry I add to my collection, like the prettiest pearl jewelry from Julie Vos, as future moments of good times!
I’ve always loved wearing pearl jewelry. Something about it is timeless, and it goes with everything from denim and a plain tee to a black tie evening gown. Worn by royalty and those living along the sea for millennia, pearls have an inherent value beyond the monetary, and their unique shape means no two are ever the same. Unlike diamond or other precious stone jewelry that require skillful cleaning and careful storage, when worn frequently, pearls are very simple to care for properly once you know how to do so. In this guide, I’ll share all of my tips for ensuring your pearl jewelry stays lustrous and bright for generations to come!
Kiel James Patrick is a very classic, quintessentially New England brand that captures the laid-back, nautical, and fun-loving nature of the East Coast. I’ve worn this brand for years, and I still regularly wear the scalloped oxford I bought from them back during my university days. It’s only since moving to New England myself that I’ve come to appreciate how well the brand encapsulates the spirit of New England in all that they make. Currently, they’re offering an extra 20% off their sale items, including the gorgeous pieces I’ve picked below, so check out my favorites from the Kiel James Patrick sale and explore their large selection of pearl jewelry, relaxed dresses, and playful accessories.
