San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2010
Blues and greens are the iridescent colors on this fall's cosmetic fashion palette, and abalone jewelry can bring out both eye-shadow shades and perk up a simple black dress. Abalone has been worn as a sign of womanhood by native tribes across the world for centuries, and as a fashion accessory this exquisite spin off from traditional mother of pearl can create stunning ensembles.
"We featured abalone jewelry before," says Lan Toma, spokesperson for pearl and jewelry wholesaler ChinaDirectPearls.com. "People loved the pieces we offered then, but then abalone seemed to fall out of fashion. We're seeing it pop back up on the runway and red carpet, however, and decided it was time to showcase it again."
Abalone is indeed making a strong reappearance, with Nicole Ritchie going so far as to try her hand at designing her own abalone starburst pendant and abalone station necklaces. "It's a great look for the college crowd" says Toma. "Ritchie is a fashion icon to the younger, hip set, and this type of jewelry definitely goes with jeans and a sweater or leggings and a tunic just as well as it does with evening wear."
The pendants are made from abalone shells, and cut into four different shapes including: drop, round, heart and oval. This ensures that all women who love unique jewelry will be able to find an appropriate match for their neckline and body shape.
The individual pendants come with a 17 inch knotted black silk cord, making the necklaces comfortable and casual chic. The front of each pendant is facet cut multicolored abalone shell, while the backs are highly polished iridescent white mother of pearl.
"Abalone is like mother of pearl 'to the max,'" Toma concludes. "It's equally appropriate as a gift to a daughter going off to college, or for a mother in law. Abalone is definitely represents the essence of ‘womanhood’, and our jewelry reflects that by making the wearer feel ultra-feminine."
