We can all agree that being a mom is a full-time job. A mom needs to be on call at any time of the day or night to see that her family is happy and safe. Research confirms that moms actually do more work than those with desk jobs. Not all jobs demand 14 working hours, but most moms have to do this every single day of the week. From tending to kids, making meals for the family, and doing chores around the house.

Being a mom has many responsibilities, but this should not hinder you from feeling good. One of the most stylish ways to bring in a touch of femininity to your outfit is by adding some pearl jewelry. The same way people adore diamonds, and other precious stones, pearls are gifts from the sea and come in a wide variety of designs. Pearls have an important place in history, where famous and powerful women have worn pearl jewelry through the years. Today, pearls have become more accessible for every woman to wear with pride, mom’s included!

We have listed below some of the pearl accessory ideas and tips to help busy moms look their best.

Wear an elegant pair of earrings

The simplest way to integrate pearls into your wardrobe is with a pair of earrings. A set of lustrous Akoya pearls which come in a perfectly round shape can add a touch of elegance and femininity to any outfit.  Pearl earrings come in a variety of settings and designs, so make sure to choose a pair that best reflects your own personal taste and style.

Find which classic pearl earring form (round, drop-shaped, or oval) suits your face shape. The color of pearls can range from off-white, gold, pink, lavender, or even the darkest black. If you prefer a more eclectic look try a long pair of dangling pearl earrings in a modern design.

Invest in a strand of pearls

An essential part of every woman’s wardrobe is a single-strand pearl necklace. It is a classic accessory that every woman should own because it is timeless and never goes out of fashion. You may be a busy mom, but that doesn’t mean you should not put effort into your appearance. You deserve to go out and have some time away with close friends.

A pearl necklace when paired with a pretty black dress can turn into the perfect outfit for any occasion. In fact, a strand of pearls complements any colored blouse. Choose the length of pearls that flatters your dress and neckline. If you’re the kind of woman who has an edgier side, try a chunkier pearl necklace, or layer multiple strands of varying lengths to make a statement.

Adorn your wrist with a pearl bracelet

Pearl bracelets symbolize elegance and femininity. They can be used from casual to formal wear. Certain women find necklaces constricting or would prefer to keep their necks bare. Pearls can be set in gold, platinum, or silver. They can be crafted in many unique and creative ways. If you are looking for a conversation piece, a pretty charm bracelet on a silver or platinum chain can liven up your look. A pearl-encrusted cuff or a double-strand bracelet made of pearls will give you a touch of glam when you go out for a special dinner with family and friends.

Stack multiple pearl bracelets together for a more laid back and girlish look. Pair your pearl bracelet with other bangles in gold, or crystals and diamonds to amp up your classy style. This is an effective look for a special occasion or formal event.

Put a ring on it

If you are minimalist and prefer a cleaner, subtle look, try a pearl ring. This beautiful luxury accessory item is generally set into metal often accompanied by small diamonds and precious stones.  However, if you want to be bold, try a larger cocktail ring or a ring with pearl clusters to make a statement and show off your personal style.

Pearl rings can also be layered with your other rings. A thin pearl ring can be placed at your finger’s base and topped with your wedding band.  Be sure to use rings of the same metal for a more cohesive look.  This can work for a day at the office or a formal dinner later in the day.

Broaches, hair accessories, and others

This is great for the mom who is not afraid to show her fun side by experimenting with her look and wearing pearls in offbeat ways. There is a wide array of pearl accessories such as headbands, hair clips, broaches, or bags.

Choose what fits your personal taste, personality, and style. A simple pearl accessory in your hair can brighten up even the dullest day.

In Closing

Pearls have represented wealth, royalty, and femininity throughout history. There is something about these precious luminous gems from the ocean that perfectly contrasts the harsher tones of cut gemstones. Pearls have a brilliant way of being able to complement one’s skin tone, hair, and eye color regardless of your ethnicity. 

Over time, pearls have become more accessible to women, providing a pearl market that offers a vast variety of designs and settings. Whether it be a necklace, a bracelet, a dainty pair of earrings, or a more traditional pearl ring, you will be able to find a match that best suits your preference. The pearl’s versatility complements your wardrobe and adds an aura of femininity that can sometimes feel lost for busy moms. One piece of pearl jewelry can lend a soft touch and complete your look.
