No longer think of pearl jewelry as basic and simple. The traditional pearl jewelry has been introduced to technology in recent years, creating jewelry that interacts with today’s smartphones. Most recently, Galatea USA experimented with embedding NFC (near field communication) chips into mollusk, and to no surprise it was a success. The tiny NFC chip, embedded in the pearl, has the ability to hold recordings of voice messages that can be heard with an simple application on a smartphone. Now you can capture the voice of your loved one in a timeless piece of jewelry that will carry on through generations to come. Genius, right?!
While some pearl designers are embedding pearls with NFC chips, others are slicing open pearls to set an array of diamonds and gemstones into the pearl. The finished product is phenomenal! The innovative designs of pearl jewelry is changing the way we view the future of jewelry, we can hardly wait to see what comes out next year.
Pearls are like a little black dress. The never go out of style and are always a constant in the fashion world. Pearls have and always will deliver the appearance of elegance, class, and sophistication.
