If you think that you can only find a traditional, classic strand of pearls out on the market, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find out that's not the case.
Although a beautiful strand of pearls is often the type of necklace that most women would love to have in their jewelry wardrobe, there are all kinds of different options when it comes to pearls.
There's a particular pearl necklace that can be worn on any occasion, by any age girl or woman, with any outfit you have in your closet. A single pearl necklace is the perfect touch to add to your neckline.
I wouldn't call single pearl necklaces simple. Not by a long shot. Something which is simple is considered plain and basic. A lustrous, single pearl pendant dangling on a beautiful necklace is anything but. A single pearl pendant necklace celebrates the elegance of one lone pearl. The entire focus of the necklace is on the pearl.
Many of us cannot afford a genuine cultured pearl necklace. That's because a pearl strand is an investment. A fine strand of cultured pearls costs a significant amount of money. In all honesty, who wants to spend hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars on their teenage daughter's first pearl necklace? I love my daughter, and all things considered, she's pretty responsible. But teenagers love to trade clothing, make-up, and jewelry. It would be just my luck that she lends the pearl necklace to a friend, and then it never makes it back to where it belongs.

pearl to hang from. A single pearl necklace on a silver chain or a single pearl necklace on a gold chain would compliment the pearl beautifully. A lot of women prefer that their pearl hang from a chain made of precious metal. That's because both silver and gold are strong metals. It gives the wearer piece of mind that there pearl isn't going anywhere.
Other popular alternatives to conventional chain necklaces are suspending the pearl from a cord or ribbon. Cords come in a variety of materials, from leather to silk. Depending on which type of look you are trying to achieve, both are equally lovely. Leather would lend an edgier look to the necklace, while silk lends a softer appearance.
A pearl suspended from a ribbon necklace is pure femininity. A ribbon can be manipulated in many different ways. It can be twisted, knotted, and pleated to create an unbelievably romantic look. This type of necklace is often more affordable as well, so you won't feel so guilty when opening up the pocketbook.
A single pearl necklace adds just the right finishing touch to your ensemble. It looks perfect on the skin when wearing a V-neck or resting on fabric when wearing a turtleneck. For those interested in a more demure pearl look, single pearl necklaces are the ideal choice.
