Akoya pearl necklaces are incredibly versatile. Akoya pearls, which are the classic saltwater pearls, look stunning with an evening gown or cocktail dress. They look very sexy with a low-cut neckline. Akoya pearl necklaces look smart, polished and pretty with a business suit. They can also add warmth and femininity to a simple sweater.

Making the Casual Seem Exceptional

In fact, pearls have the power to transform casual outfits, in my opinion. A woman who wears a different colored cashmere pullover with a pair of pants or even jeans every single day will be thought of as the best-dressed woman on her block if she always pairs the sweater with a pearl necklace. This simple look exudes confidence, warmth and polish. Plus, it's just so fabulously comfortable!

My grandmother never went for pants suits or dresses. She never dressed like an old lady, even when she was in her 90s. She would simply wear a cashmere crew neck sweater in a bold shade like ruby red or forest green, pair it with a plain old pair of black slacks, and top it off with a princess length single strand Akoya pearl necklace. She always looked fabulous.

Simplicity is a virtue. It's as true in fashion as it is in life. Keep it simple, and keep it quality. If pearls seem too tame for your wilder tastes, consider a triple strand or longer length necklace. A rope length strand of Akoya pearls is perhaps the most dramatic piece of jewelry a woman could ever wear.
