British designers Rebecca & Penelope are putting their own modern twist on the iconic pearl. Mixing the highest quality cultured pearls with leather and chain and attaching them to a playful pearl tassel, these are definitely not your grandmother’s pearls.
I chatted with Rebecca Cabo, 1/2 of Rebecca & Penelope to find out when her love affair with pearls began and the inspiration behind the line.
What’s the story behind Rebecca & Penelope?
How did your love affair with pearls begin?
Does your hometown of London inspire your designs?
Pearls are timeless, they are one of nature’s rare creations. They have longevity, since they are the oldest precious gemstones know to man, and the only ones created by another living organism, an heirloom to keep forever. And I’m obsessed with quality so the jewellery has to be as perfect as the pearls.
How do you wear your pearls?
This gorgeous black pearl necklace with the adorable white pearl tassel valued at $830 can be yours. Tell me “What is your favourite pearl memory?” in the comments section below until Friday, November 26th at noon (PST). I know we all played with our grandmother’s pearls, we all at one moment fantasized of being Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and we all thought Madonna was badass when she wore them with a cross and a Star of David during Like a Virgin tour. You know you want them!
