For the beach wedding.
“These would be beautiful for a sleeveless look where these would be a featured part of the outfit,” Haworth said.
These Keshi pearls are from Shanghai, China. A large type of oyster makes them as a byproduct of making a pearl. They are actually more rare than circular pearls.

“It’s kind of your choker look,” Haworth said. “I sell a lot of these for weddings.”
For the contemporary bride.

For the traditional bride who wants an heirloom.
These Japanese Akoya saltwater pearls retail at Pearls and More for $1,950. They are a traditional strand of pearls in a princess length that falls below the hollow of the throat, a great length for any bride.
“These are a quality that you would see in Tiffany’s, Mikimoto, Cartier, any of those places,” Haworth said.
“This would be the perfect piece you would pass on to your daughter or even farther on down the line. These are classic. They will never, ever, go out of style. It’s not just your wedding jewelry. It’s something you can pass on,” he said.
