Our pearl jewelry creations combine perfection and originality, making each piece unique. A pearl necklace for women or men is more than just a piece of jewelry; it's a symbol of luxury, beauty and sophisticated refinement.


Origin and meaning of pearls

Pearls, with their pearly beauty and subtle sparkle, have captivated mankind for millennia, making them a prized ancestral jewel through the ages. The significance of pearls is intertwined with their fascinating history. Once discovered by chance in freshwater shells, each pearl tells a story of mysterious formation in the heart of the waters.

As one of the earliest ornaments worn by mankind, they symbolize purity, wisdom and, above all, beauty. Throughout the ages, pearls have been considered symbols of wealth and status, worn by kings and queens to demonstrate their luxurious lifestyle. 

A freshwater pearl necklace never goes out of fashion, offering a perfect balance between tradition and trend. Contemporary jewelry continues to celebrate pearls, incorporating them into designs ranging from classic to whimsical, affirming their place as a central element of fashion.

Pearl necklace styles

In the world of necklace styles, pearls stand out for their elegance and diversity. Each piece reflects a blend of tradition and innovation. At Flamme en rose, we celebrate the richness of these styles, from baroque pearls to modern necklaces, each bringing its own unique charm.

Baroque pearls, with their irregular shape and pearly sheen, offer an original, sophisticated style, perfect for a more original, whimsical look. They reflect a bold, distinguished style, ideal for those looking to step off the beaten track.

For those who prefer classic fashion, the real pearl necklace remains a must-have, symbolizing refined elegance and timeless chic. Wear it close to the neck or extended towards the bust, depending on your outfit. The long pearl necklace is particularly versatile, and can be worn as a sautoir or double strand. These pearly, often rounded jewels never go out of style and are a must-have in any jewelry chest.

As for modern pearl necklaces, they break with convention with innovative designs. With textured clasps and a mix of colors, the jeweler's creativity is unleashed, producing results that never go unnoticed.

At Flamme en rose, every piece of jewelry is a work of art, combining luxury, beauty and perfect finish. Each necklace is handmade using a traditional threading method that ensures exceptional resistance. 

Tips for choosing the perfect pearl necklace

When you're looking for the perfect pearl necklace, remember that each type of pearl offers its own distinct beauty and charm. What are your needs and desires? Are you looking for a classic white pearl necklace or something a little brighter? Each type of pearl, from cultured pearls to freshwater pearls, Tahitian pearls and Akoya pearls, is different and offers its own unique charm.

Cultured pearls shine with their lustrous brilliance, adding a luxurious touch to any ensemble. These jewels of the sea are the epitome of chic. They vary in size and color, and offer a finish of perfection to match your style. Freshwater pearls, with their delicate charm and subtle nuances, embody whimsy and originality. Famous for their pearly color palette, they're an ideal choice for those looking for an accessory that's both trendy and unique.

Coveted Tahitian pearls evoke a mysterious glamour. Ranging from gray to black, they stand out for the contrast between surface color and the deep luminosity called orient. Akoya pearls, on the other hand, embody the quintessence of the genuine white pearl and are the symbol of classic perfection. There are many other types of pearl, but these are the most sought-after on the market.

When selecting your necklace, the color of the pearls plays a key role. Look at them from near and far, and make sure the strand of pearls is homogeneous. A damaged pearl or one that is less brilliant than the others could have slipped through. Pearls vary in size, offering a range of choices from subtle, delicate looks to more daring, glamorous styles. The shape of the pearls also adds a dimension of refinement and originality. 

Finally, the length of the necklace is a crucial factor. A longer necklace adds a touch of bohemian glamour, while a shorter one underlines a refined, sophisticated beauty.

Customization and maintenance

Personalizing a pearl necklace transforms an elegant piece of jewelry into something unique. At Flamme en rose, we encourage the creation of a personalized pearl necklace with pendant, a unique touch that becomes a distinctive fashion accessory and showcases your sense of chic.

Care of your pearls is essential to preserve their lustrous shine. We recommend gently wiping your pearls with a soft cloth after a few uses, keeping them shiny. Avoid contact with chemicals and store your white pearl necklace in a soft case to protect it. Regular care will ensure that your jewelry remains as beautiful as the day you bought it.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions about pearl necklaces

What's the difference between a cultured pearl and a freshwater pearl?

Cultured pearls are generally derived from saltwater oysters, while freshwater pearls come from mollusks cultivated in lakes, rivers or ponds. Cultured pearls have a thicker nacre layer, are shinier and have smoother surfaces than freshwater pearls, which on the other hand offer a greater variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Both types of pearl are cultivated by man, and freshwater pearls are more affordable.


How do I care for my pearl necklace?

The pearl necklace can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid contact with cosmetics, perfumes, hair products and chemical cleaners. Store your jewelry separately from other jewelry to avoid scratches, and if your pearl necklace is worn frequently, have it re-strung once a year to prevent the pearls from damaging each other. 


Can I customize my pearl necklace?

Yes, you can certainly customize your pearl necklace to suit your style and preferences. Here are a few options to discuss with your jeweler to help make your vision a reality. 

  • Choose from different types of beads.
  • Adjust the length to your taste.
  • Ask for a unique clasp in gold or silver.
  • Add a pendant or charm to the necklace.
