Iconic - is the word that best describes the timeless statement that is pearl drop earrings - especially when we’re talking pearl drop earrings in Australia and LA. They always exude an added layer of chic.

Look to any women of style, be it the next generation royals Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, to old school Hollywood stars Marilyn Munroe and Audrey Hepburn or modern day women on the red carpet like Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel, pearl drop earrings are adorned, worn and loved by all and are as timeless and iconic as jewellery can get.

The same sentiment even extends to local style trends. You need only look to our own Instagram or website to see that pearl drop earrings in Australia are having a serious moment.

So what is it about pearl drop earrings in Australia that makes them such an effortlessly chic staple?

Two words - mother nature. Just as we’ve seen a shift towards clean beauty, minimising toxins and turning towards natural beauty looks, so too has there been a shift back towards natural minerals, resources and raw jewellery materials.

Derived from nature itself, freshwater pearl drop earrings are unique, with no two pearls ever the same and a true product of our natural environment.

What this means is the freshwater pearl drop earrings begin as a raw material cultivated within the shells of mussels and as such, organically grow into their own beautiful shape, colour and sheen - with their mother shell influencing what shade they go on to be.

While pearls can be derived as many types - natural, cultured, freshwater or marine, freshwater pearls (our preferred pearl type at Francesca) tend to predominantly be white or pink. 

With freshwater pearl drop earrings making a statement right now we’ve decided to take a moment to honour all the hottest pearl drop earrings Australia is loving right now - including our drop earrings.
