Pearls are considered important in many different cultures and even religions. The greeks associated the pearl with marriage, love and beauty and believed that it would promote harmony. The Romans saw it as a symbol of wealth. Pearls have been protective charms for knights in the dark ages and only allowed by law to be worn by noblemen during the Renaissance.
Today pearls are a popular choice for brides who wear them as jewelry and embroidered beads in their wedding gowns and accessories. It’s not difficult to see why. They’re illuminating and no matter what colour of pearl you have your heart set on, they’re going to shine with a royal tint in your wedding look. I created this elegant style board for those of you that are looking for pearl wedding inspiration and I have to say, I just love this look.
