an Easy NYFW Look, with Pearls

NYFW, 2014, Harper's Bazaar
In honor of New York Fashion Week, 2014 - where designers showcased their Spring Collections for the upcoming year - and fashion lovers flocked to the scene in the name of fine clothing - we through together a simple, chic look that any woman could accomplish, using their own wardrobe essentials. There are certain pieces that every woman should own, like a Little Black Dress, for instance. With your favorite white top, a pair of boyfriend jeans (or any worn-in denim), AND a statement pearl necklace - you can achieve a very modern look, composed completely out of timeless pieces. 

Grab a black bag and throw on a pair of black heels and VOILA! - you could walk the streets of New York during Fashion Week and fit right in.The Pearl Necklace shown above, with the gold flower and accents, is by Tory Burch, but the double-strand Pearl Necklace shown below, with the colorful jeweled flower, is an original design by CocoVee; it is sold with matching earrings, for only $68!

Our easy NYFW Look, with Pearls can be recreated with any great statement necklace that you already have - or that you can find. Just remember - Pearls are the jewelry equivalent to the Little Black Dress; they never go out of style.

the Statement Earring popping up everywhere - and it has a lot to say.

I first took note of this look when I saw the "Lone Star" feature in the June 2014 issue of Vogue; Emily Holt is shown wearing a single brass earring by Celine. As I continue to see this look in fashion editorials and ads, I'm predicting that the one earring - or mix and match earring look - is here to stay through Fall. 

Emma Watson wears a Delfina Delettrez Pearl Earring with a simple, lady-like LBD (Little Black Dress). We at CocoVee especially love this look, because we are all Pearl Girls!

This Turtle Neck look is another perfect example of what to wear with a statement earring (the one shown is by Louis Vuitton) – or earrings – because it's a monotone, classic piece; you don't want your outfit to make too much of a statement, as well – let your earring (s) do all of the talking.

The key to this look is to mix and match large and small – like a hoop or a chandelier on one ear and a post earring on the other. Above are 6 gorgeous examples of earrings - all sold as a pair that can be worn on just one ear and mixed and matched with another.

At CocoVee, our earring selection is always refreshing itself. Since we pride ourselves in carrying both classic and unique pieces to choose from, you will surely find more than one option to make a Statement. 

In this Etre Cecile ad, notice the lovely young model (on the left) with a single pearl Statement Earring? The solitary pearl is the first thing I notice when I see this photo - which means only one thing: a statement is exactly what this Statement Earring is making.

The Keshi Pearl

Under the very large umbrella of baroque pearls resides the very unique and lovely Keshi Pearl.

The word "Keshi" is Japanese and means poppy seed. Keshi pearls can be freshwater or saltwater and vary in size and shape, however, the main element common to all Keshi pearls is they do not have a nucleus.

They are most often referred to as having a "corn flake" shape. The bottom line is the Keshi is a reject. This meaning that the oyster (salt) or mollusk (fresh) spits out the nucleus before the development of the pearl has had the opportunity to finish. Natures reject has become a very treasured and loved type of pearl-available in a myriad of shapes, colors, and sizes.

Our newest Keshi combo necklace/bracelet/earrings in the "Yum Yum" colors of summer!
