In light of the upcoming, and much anticipated, Pearls exhibition at London’s V&A Museum, the world of fashion and jewelry has fallen all over themselves for these iridescent orbs. From the fall fashions that graced the couture runways this past spring to endless edgy autumn accessories, pearls are having a renaissance.
The exhibit, which opens September 21st through January 19th, 2014, shines a spotlight on this historic gemstone whose allure has captivated humans for thousands of years. While I plan to write a more extensive preview of the exhibit later, for now I’d like to share one of the pearl jewels from the exhibit, with which I am currently obsessed.
This week’s Jewelry Obsession is a gorgeous pair of contemporary melo pearl and brown diamond earrings by Hemmerle.
