The allure of the pearl makes it a perennial favorite for brides. This organic gem
embodies an iridescent sheen that compliments any bridal gown with its luster.
Freshwater pearls offer nuanced shades of whites, champagnes and pinks. South Sea
pearls are larger and more valuable. Baroque pearls can be sculptural and unique in
shape. When worn close to the face, pearls make eyes brighter and teeth whiter.
