Now that the holidays are in full swing, you may be eyeing the most festive and dressy items of clothing in your closet - luxurious cashmere sweaters, sequined dresses, high-heeled boots, and velvet accents. At this time of year, most people like to seize the opportunity to put a little extra effort into their wardrobe. They also love dressing their young daughters in cute dresses with bows and young sons in adorable holiday sweaters.
Did you know that pearl jewelry makes an ideal accessory for all the most spirited outfits? Whether you and your family celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, or simply some well-deserved time off from work and school, you can add a flourish of pearls to an outfit to elevate it to a new level of luxury and style. In addition, you can always add a little bit of luster to a New Year's Eve outfit - some pearls even look like champagne bubbles! Here are some ideas:
Make a New Tradition
For many families, the holidays are about making traditions that will endure for many years to come. If you'd like to introduce your daughter, granddaughter, niece, or another beloved girl to a new tradition, then you can consider gifting a custom pearl necklace that she can wear during the holidays and at other special times throughout the year.
If you're giving a Hanukkah gift, share it with her on the first night, so she can wear the pearls for eight days and then associate the beautiful object with the memory. If you're giving pearl jewelry as a Christmas gift, share it with her on Christmas Eve as an extra-special gift that Santa brought early, just for her. If you also own pearls, you can wear them with her and even coordinate your outfit with hers. She'll feel so grown up with her sophisticated accessory.
Set a New Year Intention
On the blog, we've shared posts like "The Symbolic Meaning of Pearl Colors" and "Common Myths and Meanings Associated with Pearls". For many people who enjoy pearl jewelry, pearls carry special meaning that extends far beyond the appeal of their appearance. Would you like to set a New Year's resolution or intention?

Get Comfortable With Pearls
During the holiday season, we do spend a lot of time getting dressed up, but we also spend just as much - if not more - time getting cozy. If you live in a part of the world where winters are harsh, then you know first-hand how difficult it can be to rally yourself to go to a party. The good news is that pearls are extremely comfortable. Not only will they not itch or irritate your skin, but they actually feel pleasing to the touch. If you're in the mood to wear your flannels but still want to maintain the holiday spirit, feel free to mix pearls with pajamas!
