pearly whites, pinks & golds

February 1, 2022

As a little girl, I had a pair of screw back pearl earrings that I wore all the time. I vividly remember loosening and tightening the screw in the back, and how sometimes, they’d squeeze my ears too tightly. Even though I never wear them, I love pearls, particularly baroque ones that aren’t perfectly round. My grandmother wore pearls often, reams of them, beneath a crisp white collar. Pearls can be classic, and avant garde. I do love how this Melanie Georgacopoulos’ baroque ring looks like iridescent liquid. These tiny pearls, in all their weird and wonderful shapes and sizes, are a tiny glimpse into the sheer variety out there. And that they all come from the bowels of mollusks.
