How to Mix and Match Pearls with Gemstones


Pearls are a staple item in most women’s jewellery boxes. Whether you opt for simple pearl studs for every day wear, or flashier drop earrings and matching pearl necklaces for dressier occasions, you’ll no doubt reach for the pearls for many different events. But what should you do if you find your other beautiful pieces languishing in favour of your favourite pearls?

Well, there’s a simple solution: pearl jewellery works really well with gemstone pieces. If you need inspiration, speak to your local jewellers who will no doubt tell you how easy it is to mix and match pearls with gemstones!

Pearls and Morganite

Morganite is an extremely pretty pink coloured gemstone, and as such is perfect to wear with pearls for that delicate, feminine pretty-in-pink look.

There’s something super romantic about the combination of morganite and pearl, which makes it perfect as a classic wedding look. If you’re opting for a vintage or princess feel for your big day, consider asking jewellers Woodford and Ilford wide for this classic pairing.

Pearls and Tanzanite

Teaming pearls with blue tanzanite stones is another beautiful combination. The blue and white have quite a business like feel to them, so it’s a perfect look for the office or a more formal occasion. Team with a crisp white shirt or a trouser suit for maximum impact.

Don’t forget that if you have an heirloom pearl necklace, this look is perfect for such a classic piece. Remember to have it restrung regularly by a local jeweller in Loughton or Ilford so as to protect the pearls from the string breaking.

Pearls and Black Onyx

Monochrome will always be a classic combination, so why not mix and match pearls with black onyx? This is a look that can be worn many ways: with a little black dress, with a power suit for the office, as a mixture of individual pearl and black onyx bracelets stacked together with a simple white t-shirt.

If you really want to mix up pearls with black onyx, why not have a custom piece made by a jeweller in Woodford? That way you’ll always have a go to piece of jewellery when you want to shake things up a bit!
