ASK MS. ELITOU: How can I add pearls to my “Raver Cool” style?

 “Hey Ms. Elitou! I have what you call a ‘Raver Cool’ party style. I’m a twenty-year old, college student who studies hard so when I have time off I truly enjoy a party! When I go out to a party I have a really fun style.  I love to wear neon colored clothing and accessories, crop tops, fun wedges and fitted distressed jeans for the most part.  I would really like to switch up my common neon accessories and I was hoping you could suggest a pearl style for me. Thanks!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      -Sara C. read more

ASK MS. ELITOU: Are Pearls Good for Your Everyday Woman?

 “Hey Ms. Elitou! I have been looking at the Pearls Only jewelry and I wanted to know do you think that pearls are for the everyday woman? Can the average woman who has the hustle and bustle of work, constant outings, all while maintaining the responsibilities of raising children get a great amount of use from pearl jewelry? I am a mother of two and I find that I have little time to switch up my jewelry, I need them to go with everything and I need to be able to move fast.  I would love to invest in diamonds but I am too worried about the cost and the possibility of losing an earring due to my fast moving lifestyle. Do you think pearls would be a better fit for me? Thanks in advance!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                -Catherine B. read more

ASK MS. ELITOU: Is There Such Thing As Layering Too Many Pearls?

Personally, I am a huge advocate for layering pearls because it is fun and complimenting to all!

When a woman layers her pearls she is asking for attention without being so obvious. Wearers of pearls are confident, charismatic and completely modish so to stack it them greatly makes them extraordinary.

To answer your question, I do not think there is such a thing of layering too many pearls but I do believe that there is a time and a place. You should stick to 1-2 pearl strand necklaces when at the office, and in other professional environments because you do not want your clients to focus on your jewelry rather than your business. read more

ASK MS. ELITOU: How do you wear pearls with a casual outfit?

Pearls are commonly known to compliment more upscale evening pieces or professional clothing like dress suits. They are not commonly associated with casual wear, so I completely understand you inquiry. Pearls can be styled with causal looks like the look above featuring a gray and white striped sweater, dark blue distressed jeans, pink statement cat-eye glasses, a pair of simple white wedge sneaker boots, flower earrings, and a perfect combination of layered rhinestone and pearl bracelets.

This look really works because the pearls are just an accent piece rather than the full focus of the look. The combination of the pearls and rhinestones layered as a bracelet creates an awesome appearance that speaks class and sophistication with a little fun and daringness.  They truly complement each other.

To keep your look flawlessly casual be sure not to overdo the pearls (i.e. pearl necklace with pearl bracelets, ring and earrings together) because this will instantly make you look overdone and overdressed. read more
