Freshwater Pearls: A Guide to June's Luminous Gemstone
Pearls are the ultimate accessory for the long, warm, summery days ahead. Our freshwater pearl jewellery is equally as perfect for walking down the aisle as it is for adding to your everyday jewellery to compliment your post euro-holiday glow! Discover our collection of pearl earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, handcrafted in our London workshop with recycled 9ct solid gold and one-of-a-kind freshwater pearls, hand-selected for their natural beauty.
What is the significance of pearl jewellery?
Pearls have long held meaningful significance. Known as nature’s gemstone, they are the only gem produced by living organisms and one of the first gemstones to be used in jewellery. Their special lustour and organic shape led the Ancient Greeks to consider them the tears of Aphrodite, the goddess of fertility. Today, this iridescent gem is believed to symbolise wisdom, innocence and purity.
The traditional gift for 30th wedding anniversaries, they are also the birthstone for June, making this the perfect time to gift pearls to someone special (or to treat yourself!)
How to style pearl jewellery
Versatility lies at the heart of Maya’s pearl jewellery designs. Whether you prefer bold and contemporary styles or a more delicate and classic look, all of our pearl jewellery is designed with timelessness in mind. Each piece is handcrafted, intended as lifelong additions to your collection.
Go bold and playful
Our Pearl Chain Collection is a contemporary take on traditional pearl jewellery. Playful yet elegant, bold 9ct solid gold chain links are adorned with large and luminous pearls, crafted beautifully by our skilled jewellers in our London studio.
Stay classic and delicate
Searching for something a little more traditional? Our delicate freshwater pearls are linked onto dainty solid gold chains for a subtle pearly elegance. The most-loved Solid Gold Pearl Wrap Bracelet doubles up as a necklace for added versatility.
Make it bridal
Unparalleled as a bridal accessory, pearls are the perfect finishing touch on the big day. For the modern bride our Solid Gold Pearl Hoop Earrings are a contemporary yet classic choice. If you’re looking for something a little more traditional and romantic to say “I do” in, our Solid Gold Pearl Choker paired with our Solid Gold Drop Earrings make a perfect bridal match.
Build your perfect pearl stack
We love to layer up pearl jewellery with our favourite chain necklaces and bracelets to build our own personalised necklace or bracelet stack. Let our Solid Gold Pearl Chain Necklace take centre stage and play around with chains in varying lengths to build your look.
