For a long time, pearls were only seen on society’s elite and inside grandmothers’ jewellery boxes, and if you were ever seen wearing any kind of shell jewellery, then you were pigeonholed as a ‘surfy’
Over time though, pearls have become timeless pieces that especially when gifted, hold sentimental value.
Now, both pearl and shell-detailed jewellery are back in style in a big way. They have been crafted into more modern designs and become more popular and on-trend after they have been worn by some of our favourite fashion influencers and celebrities.
Due to the rise of the trend, an array of jewellery designers and fashion brands have started creating beautiful shell and pearl accessories.
