Over at Pearl &Clasp, June is definitely our favorite month. Between the frenzy of the wedding season and the summer sun, we love this time of year. Plus, the Pearl is June’s birthstone – so we love to see them pop up in fashion all over the place, especially on the red carpet. Here’s a list of some of our favorite celebrities that were born this month:
Angelina Jolie – June 4 – This mama-philanthropist celebrity knows how to look classy on and off the runway. In this look, Angelina pairs a classic pearl strand with pearl earrings to give a presentation for one of the many charities that her and her hubby participate in. To recreate this look, check out this pearl strand and these earrings.
Joan Rivers – June 8 – The queen of funny knows her style, and has to always look her best to be able to tell others that they don’t. Joan turned 80 this year, and still looks amazing. In this vintage look, Joan pairs a long double pearl strand with a daring suit, and pulls it off beautifully. To recreate this look, check out this necklace.
Natalie Portman – June 9 – Natalie’s played every part from Star Wars to Black Swan, and always has something gorgeous to show off on the runway. In this amazing look, these pearls are actually part of her dress, but you can recreate this look at home too – reminiscent of Katherine Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, pairing a multi-strand pearl necklace with a high necked, black dress is always a classy choice.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen – June 13 – These style icons always have an interesting look to share with the public, and aren’t afraid to take risks in fashion. In this look, both sisters wear multi-strand pearl necklaces for a fun fashion shoot.
Venus Williams – June 17 – On and off the tennis court, this US Open winner knows how to look great. She isn’t afraid to wear jewelry and to add accessories to any outfit, even on in action. In this look, Venus is wearing a pearl bracelet – while playing tennis. To recreate this look, check out this bracelet.
Nicole Kidman – June 20 – This classy actress-turned-mama has a rockin’ bod and a great sense of style. In this cover for Bazaar Magazine, Nicole wears an uber-long pearl strand with a sexy negligee. Want a pearl strand this size? Talk to our pearl experts here.
Meryl Streep – June 22 – This Best Actress winner knows how to dress the part for any role. She’s rocked pearls as the Queen of England and Julia Child, and knows that they are a perfect addition to many an outfit. In this look, Meryl pairs a double pearl strand with a funky pair of glasses and chic jacket to complete her look.
Fantasia Barrino – June 30 – This gal can belt out a tune, and always looks great doing so. Fantasia’s style is unique and daring, and these earrings help make a statement without being over the top. Choosing a black pearl over a white one shows people that you know classic style, but aren’t afraid to make it your own. For this look, try these earrings.
Now that we’re done swooning over our fave pearl looks on these June babies, we’re going to go enjoy the sun! For more pearl info, shop Pearl & Clasp here.

Wedding season is upon us! After years and months of preparing, brides are picking up their dresses from the tailor, finalizing seating charts, giving the final approval over menu and flowers, and putting the final touches on her look for her big day.
Choosing a classic but personally designed pearl necklace, bracelet or earrings allows a bride to show off her creativity and personal style. She will cherish the piece forever, and her “something new” may turn into a “something borrowed” when everyone loves her necklace or “a something old” at her daughter’s or granddaughter’s weddings in the future.
Chelsea and Jared just tied the knot, and to make her day extra special, Chelsea wanted to find the perfect necklaces for her and her bridal party. She selected this gorgeous teardrop pearl necklace that contains just the right amount of bling to accentuate the sweetheart neckline of her dress, drawing the eye up to her face without making too much of a statement. The spacing of the pearls gives the illusion that they are floating on her collarbone, and the teardrop pearls perfectly accentuate the classic neckline of her gown.
Chelsea wanted to give her bridesmaids a gift that was formal enough for her wedding but would look fabulous with any outfit, so she customized these single pearl pendants by adding cubic zirconuim on top to add that extra touch of sparkle. The elegant pieces float above the sweetheart necklines of their dresses and add a special signature to the overall look of the bridal party.
Chelsea looked absolutely radiant, and we loved having a small part in her extremely special day.
Congratulations, Chelsea and Jared!

On your big day every detail has to be accounted for. From top to bottom your look has to be flawless. With that being said its super important to make sure your wedding jewelry works perfectly with your bridal look. And although, your wedding jewelry is considered a minor detail when compared to the dress or the photographer, it’s still warrants some much needed attention and thought.
But what’s a bride to do if she can’t afford those stunning designer earrings? Should she buy costume jewelry or what? Well lets not get ahead of ourselves. We all love us some fun costume jewelry but not for your wedding day! Get real girlfriend. There are real tips you can use to help you pick out stunning wedding jewelry without having to sacrifice your style ( and your dignity).
Wedding Pearl Jewelry-Classic Couture & Affordable |
In case you didn’t see the topic of pearls coming your way… here it is. Wedding Pearl Jewelry, we’re not just saying it, is seriously the best option out there in wedding jewelry. Not only is it a classic and its beauty never goes out of style ( not even after the honeymoon), but there are tons of ways you can make pearls affordable. You can’t say that about diamonds.
Yes, we are talking about real pearls.
Restring Your Old Pearls |
Almost every girl I know has herself at least one old pair of pearls her Grandma or Aunt got her for some big occasion. Whether it was graduation from 5th grade of from college, its rare that there’s not at least some pearls floating around somewhere in your jewelry box. Pearls remain a classic always but when they are hidden in the back of your jewelry box since 5th grade, its understandable they would feel old and out dated.
To re-design your pearls and add some more bridal glam all you have to do is simply restring your pearls. You can turn a bracelet into a necklace and a necklace into a bracelet. And if you’re looking to add some other gems to your pearls for some extra shimmer, designer clasps ( especially diamond clasps) work perfectly for bridal chic.
It may be hard to imagine the end result and to figure out the best design. Make sure whoever you take your pearls to that A) they are reputable and B) they have an eye for style. Just cause they have been restringing pearls for longer than you’ve been alive, doesn’t mean they’re gonna make your pearls look anymore glamorous. Look for a company that has the package deal.
Simply Pearl Earrings |
A lot of brides forget that wedding jewelry is definitely needed, but it shouldn’t be the main event. Sometimes the simplest pearl earrings are all that’s needed to tie the whole look together. Here are some stunning pearl earrings inspirations to get you going.
Next time you find yourself justifying that costume jewelry purchase for your wedding, think again! Wedding Pearl Jewelry is all the rage in bridal chic and your best bet for affordable style.

When it comes to pearl jewelry, everyone has their unique style. Some people go for the bolder, golder looks, others the dainty and the dangles. But when it comes to your pearls, you need them to be perfect for your style, and of course, for your budget.
Sometimes in life, its true, we can’t have our cake AND eat it too. But sometimes, just sometimes, something great comes along every once in awhile that allows you to have both.

Ever have that hot brunch date or bridal shower to go to and you need that dressy but not too dressy outfit? Its a fine line to cross but it can be done ladies. This outfit is inspired by those awkward fall or spring days ( hopefully not so far away) when the weather isn’t freezing but its not so warm either.
This cute little dress sports the Spring 2013 trend of stripes, vertically and horizontally. The simple color scheme works perfectly with neutral flats and bag. To add some sparkle we paired this look with our Spring 2013 Antique Side Buckle Double Strand Pearl Necklace. This necklace is such a stunner that it has the power to transform this outfit into a totally fancy one, but to keep it stylin’ but not too crazy, we threw in a grey boyfriend blazer.
