Making your first purchase of pearl jewelry can be tough. There are so many options, so what are you to do? Many people fall upon two different options: pearl earrings or pearl bracelets. Each of them will look great, but it can be difficult to choose only one option.

Pearl earrings are a great choice for your first purchase. They are incredibly versatile, able to be worn to a variety of events, to the beach, or even just around town. For a first purchase, they are great for casual wear, but can be dressed up just as easily.
If you find yourself looking for a piece of jewelry that you can wear to a variety of places, and with a variety of outfits, it’s unlikely that you will find something more versatile than a set of pearls.
A pearl bracelet is much more of a statement piece. While pearl earrings are traditionally much more reserved, you can make a larger statement with a pearl bracelet (if you choose to). This makes wearing a pearl bracelet, and especially one that makes a statement, something that is only done on occasion.
A pearl bracelet will be a perfect choice if you already have a medium to large collection of other jewelry that you can wear with a bracelet, or if you want a piece of jewelry that you will wear only sporadically.
Finding the right piece of pearl jewelry for your first purchase can be a difficult decision, and it is definitely one that should be made carefully. If you are looking for a piece that you can wear every day, pearl earrings are a great option for you. On the other hand, if you want something that you can wear every now and then, or you are looking to make a statement with your pearl jewelry, a pearl bracelet is a much better option.
