An old superstition says that pearls and weddings are a big no-no. On the other hand, whenever you take a look at some classic fairytale wedding themes and ideas, you will see the bride wearing pearl jewelry. Is she taking unnecessary risks, or is she a smart, classy and refined woman who knows pearls symbolize harmony, wealth, and wisdom (which are basically the fundamentals of a happy marriage)?
Myths and rumors aside, bridal pearl jewelry is probably one of the smartest choices you can make. Pearls have deep meanings, are timeless gems that are making a huge comeback in our modern times and will make you look good in your wedding photos three decades from now. They have incredible sentimental value and represent prized possessions, financially speaking.

3. Your Pearl Wedding Earrings Are the Best Present You Can Offer
As we’ve said, pearls come from legends and face the future with confidence.

You and your time-matted earrings will be cherished forever.
4. Your Pearl Wedding Jewelry Set Says Something about Yourself
Pearls bear a loud and clear message: elegance, seduction, class, style, and taste. You can take a step further and send your own message: “my pearls are a symbol of fortune, love, passion and unity.” In other words, once you’ve made up your mind about your bridal pearl jewelry set with all the trimmings (earrings, bracelet, pendant etc) you can tell superstitions, urban myths, and rumors to take a hike. You are a modern, independent woman, in love with her pearls. After all, if things go wrong, the pearls are going to be the last ones to blame.
5. Your Bridal Pearl Jewelry Will Be a Historical Landmark in Your Life

Do you want to look over your wedding album 40 years from now and exclaim: “Boy, I was looking smashing that day!”? Do you want your friends, family members and guests to reminiscence over the way you looked, the way you smiled and the way you radiated during the happiest day of your life?
