Warm-weather is here, which means dresses, sandals, and of course summer jewelry! As usual, we’ve been keeping tabs on the latest jewelry trends, and are here to give you the lowdown. Sea creatures are big this season, as seen in Emilio Pucci’s runway show, while ring bling is still going strong (swing rings, midi rings, stacking rings, all in!). Pearls are hot this summer, and made a statement at the Chanel Airlines show, while large hoops made a runway comeback at both Versace and Givenchy.

The 401 on Freshwater Pearls

Pearl lovers and collectors, ever wonder what’s the deal with freshwater pearls? Well, read on to get schooled on these America’s favorite ladylike classic

FreshwaterPearls_blog_20150903_a_ (1)

These lustrous lil’ stones (like most pearls on the market) are cultured which makes them a man-made creation. Typically, a small piece of tissue will be inserted in the pearl nacre. The pearl will start to grow but usually in an irregular shape. During the ’90s freshwater pearl gained popularity because of the variety of color and their affordability. Generally speaking freshwater pearls are grown in Japan, China and the United States. Fiending for more info? Check out these fun facts about pearls…

1. Freshwater pearl cultivation began around the time when America was discovered by the Europeans.

2. The finest freshwater pearls can be found in the Mississippi River, Scotland and China

Pearls, Diamonds, & Gemstones: Faberge Unveils “Faberge Pearl Egg”

As jewelry enthusiasts, we love anything with glitz and glamour, especially a blinged-out Faberge Pearl Egg! Faberge unveiled its first Faberge egg after 99 years, in Qatar last week. The egg was shown at the exhibition of watches and jewelry.

The “Faberge Pearl Egg” is designed with an impressive 139 white pearls, over 3,300 diamonds, and other precious gemstones. Reminds us a little of Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar dress (now stolen!) featuring 6,000 pearls. The bejeweled egg will be sold after its exhibition.

Any guesses how much the Faberge Pearl Egg will go for?

Here’s some more Faberge eye candy to ogle (we’d welcome any one of these eggs into our lives).

The entire family looked adorable as usual, but what we really loved was Kate’s summery green silk dress (found on the British fashion website Suzannah), which she paired with a pair of simple yet classy pearl drop earrings.
