Wearing pearls will never go out of style.
Sure, a simple chain of white pearls may be a little too Upper East Side chic for your daring, powerful taste. But with brands like Fragment entering the marketplace with revolutionary reasons to wear pearls, there’s no way you can’t not style your look with a piece born glistening from under the sea!
Coco Chanel popularized pearls in the early 1900s and teens. She added a simple touch to her tightly constructed, slim-cut feminine skirt and blazer suits. For Coco, it was about wearing “costume jewelry” pearls that weren’t real pearls at all – so that the ladies of the day could have a variety of styles to change up with their outfits. Plus, costume jewelry bore the added benefit for affordability, since the pearls were lookalikes and not the real deal. Win!
At Fragments, pearl accessories range from only $100 (like this gorgeous pearl bracelet – lust!) to into the thousands for a one-of-a-kind piece you’ll pass on for generations in your family legacy. The pieces are investment worthy but still within budget for birthday, holiday and special occasion gifts. Or perhaps … just because you love you!
Perhaps you already own a pair of pearls and are looking to add a modern edge to this vintage classic. For the modern bride, pearls from Fragments don’t have to just be in a necklace – a ring, bracelet or statement piece could be just the ticket to make your vintage wedding dress feel like it was designed fresh off the runway for 2014.
Fragments produces styles in the US, shipping these delicate, eye-catching delights worldwide and attracting the attention of editors at WWD, InStyle and Lucky Magazines.
