The first semester of my third year has now been completed, and I am still trying to stay afloat as the stress of my upcoming papers are weighing me down. As you can imagine, it hasn't been the breeziest of weeks, despite the winter chills that is felt no matter how many layers of clothing I put on. Honestly thought that by conquering winter in Europe I'd be able to withstand Melbourne winter.. oh how wrong was I. It's ok though, I'm easily cheered up by the little things in life - my electric blanket, the upcoming holidays, and oh, other little things like pearls.
I've never really considered pearls as an accessory I could pull off, so dainty and so classy - not exactly the aesthetic I associate much with these days. But after receiving a pair of these beautiful pearl earrings from Naked Pearls, I am convinced that there's always room for improvisation.
Naked Pearls believes in the concept of making the act of gifting easier. The pearls are specifically selected to ensure only the highest of quality and grade (AAA grade) are chosen so that the pearls will have its beautiful lustre and a surface that is 95% blemish free. I've personally seen how pearls have been harvested at a site in Raja Ampat, and understand the difficulty of harvesting a pearl of this quality. The pearl jewellery at Naked Pearls are rare, and of the top 1% of the pearl harvest.
NOT ONLY THAT, Naked Pearls also believes wholeheartedly in giving back to the community. They support the Stop Hunger Now campaign, in which three meals are donated to a person in need for every jewellery that is sold. More information can be found here.
Naked Pearls believes in celebrating individuality, so I thought I'd team it up with a different style to what you'd usually see pearls paired with. Honestly had such a fun time pulling out this outfit!
