Pearls symbolize status, wealth, and class. Since ancient times, pearls remain an essential piece of jewelry to every jewelry collection. Today, imitation pearls allow women of all statuses to look beyond traditional fine jewelry and embrace costume jewelry.
Not too long ago, the French luxury brand, Dior, popularized tribal-inspired, double sided pearl stud earrings by introducing the Dior Tribales earring collection. By this design, the largest pearl peeps out subtly from behind the lobe, while the small pearl rests on the ear. Although these pearls do not come from an oyster shell, the resin beads create a unique, rare and bold asymmetric effect. Since the launch of Dior Tribales earrings, countless brands have imitated the design at a more affordable price as low as $20 per pair (see Overstock.com).
With an ongoing quest for breakthrough design, this season, Dior introduced the new Dior Tribales earring design— resin beads encased in a metal cage. A departure from classy femininity, this graphic and contemporary design will add a glamorous, yet rebellious demeanor to any look. The resin pearls are trimmed with gold-tone metal, making a bold and striking play on asymmetry. Once again, the largest pearl peeps out subtly from behind the lobe, while the small pearl rests on the ear. For the optimal look, try pairing these earrings with a leather jacket, simple top, asymmetric skirt and a leather wedge sandal.
Even when imitation, the reputation of the pearl survives as unique, rare and striking. Let your inner fashion elite out and grab a pair of the new Dior Tribales. Available at select Dior boutiques.
