Happy Thursday gorgeous fashion-lovers! At Teramasu, our ambition is to encourage, continue, and create timeless beauty and when considering fashion trends, we cannot help but admire the sophisticated, classic style of pearl jewelry. This beautiful Thursday, we are popping the champagne in celebration of new fashion arrivals, all June birthdays, and the quickly approaching summer season. The sun is out and the first day of summer is only a week away, so we are putting on our oversized sunglasses and channeling our inner Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, and Marilyn Monroe through our gorgeous, handmade designer freshwater pearl jewelry. Our Teramasu Pearl Jewelry makes the perfect meaningful June birthstone gift for her as our unique designs balance one of a kind style with fabulous, trendy class.
When it comes to styling our stunningly classic pearl statement jewelry, we love to look at history’s timeless fashion icons for outfit and style inspiration. British actress, humanitarian, and fashion icon, Audrey Hepburn, was a woman of timeless style and became arguably best known for her pairing of a little black dress and pearls for her role as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961). Her chic use of simple but stunning statement pearl jewelry highlighted her classic beauty and sophistication. Jackie Kennedy’s one of a kind, classic style inspired entire generations of women and the art of women’s fashion. She coined the belief that “pearls are always appropriate” and anytime is a good time for a chic outfit and pearls, creating and enforcing the unique elegance that comes with wearing pearl jewelry. Although famous for singing that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” one of Marilyn Monroe’s most treasured pieces of jewelry was a simple but stunning string of pearls given to her by baseball player Joe DiMaggio during their honeymoon in Japan. Another true style icon, she always opted for jewelry that enhanced her natural beauty, opting and loving to wear strands of pearl necklaces and other classic pearl jewelry.
Our handmade, designer jewelry pieces feature truly stunning freshwater pearls highlighted by simple but beautifully meaningful accents. Whether it be gold features, a pop of color, or a one of a kind pendant, we make sure that our freshwaters pearls are the focus and that the jewelry is paired with the perfect meaningful details. Pearl, the June birthstone, has always been considered to be a symbol of purity. The ancient Greeks believed that pearls were the hardened tears of joy from Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Pearls are the perfect, meaningful stone as they are said to symbolize purity, generosity, integrity, as well as loyalty in its wearer. It has also been believed to promote knowledge, morality, and prosperity. Pearl jewelry is considered to be the perfect accessory for brides on their wedding day, reflecting both tradition and class throughout cultures.
Throughout time pearls were known as the "Queen of Gems," possessing a history, respect, and appeal far exceeding how today's wearer may view the gem. As evident in much of recorded history, a natural pearl piece of jewelry was considered to be a treasure of unrivaled worth and value, at one point standing as the most luxurious and exclusive gemstones and pieces of jewelry in the world. Pearls are truly one-of-a-kind amongst other gemstones because they don’t come from the earth but are of the sea. Pearls are considered to be the only gemstone naturally produced by living creatures (mollusks) and when it comes to their natural beauty, they require no special shaping or enhancing in order to make the most of their radiant exquisiteness. Their natural shine and gloss (which has become its signature trademark) has been treasured and cherished since ancient times well into fashion and Hollywood icons, ensuring that pearl jewelry always remains in style.
With summer adventures on the way, we are loving the classiness and practicality of pearl jewelry as they can be worn at any event, whether it be a seaside escape, brunch with your besties, or a summer wedding. So grab your sunhat, your best sunglasses, and a little black dress because here’s a look at a few of our favorite June birthstone-inspired, gorgeous pearl jewelry:
