The timeless pearl earring has made an elegant path back into the forefront of fashion this spring!

Pearls are an infinite accessory that are appropriate for women of any age, any style and any look. They have lent a distinctive imprint of elegance on women throughout the history of art, literature and film, and have been the signature of such style icons as Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 classic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany‘s by Truman Capote. Hepburn made the pearl her trademark for that film and for years to follow.

Their impact has been felt for centuries as is evidenced in art when they were seen on the mysterious girl in Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer‘s timeless 1665 masterpiece, “Girl With A Pearl Earring.” It has been the focal point of the collection at the Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague since 1902.

Among the designers best known for  pearl accessories are Chanel with the brand showing an array of oversized necklaces, bracelets and rings this spring.

Pearls are a classic that have never gone out of fashion. Invest in them and they will last forever.

Enjoy DOWNTOWN’s pearly picks for spring.
