Historically considered the wedding gem, pearl jewellery is traditionally presented by the Father of the Bride or the Groom and symbolise love, virtue, spirituality and prosperity.
The association of pearls for weddings is believed to originate from India, several thousand years ago when a father collected pearls from the sea to present to his daughter on her wedding day.
Traditional Bridal Pearls
Throughout history, pearls have been at the height of wedding fashion, especially pearl necklaces and the tradition continues to this day. Although today's bride has a much greater choice of colours, shapes and designs for their pearl wedding jewellery.
It is unfortunate that many items of pearl jewellery for the wedding and bridal market sold today and labelled bridal 'pearls' are not real pearls, but 'faux' or fake pearls. The word 'pearl' on its own is widely accepted nowadays as referring to cultured pearls. Faux pearls should be clearly described as fake pearls.
Absolute Pearls has a wide range of genuine cultured pearl wedding or bridal jewellery to complement the classic or modern bride. Popular choices still include the classic white pearl sets or cream pearl sets, including pearl necklace, pearl earrings and pearl bracelets. More modern wedding jewellery choices include pearl pendants, tin cup and illusion necklaces.
Our wedding jewellery can also accommodate the Mothers of the bride and groom, as well as the Bridesmaids and other members of the family.
