14 Sep Gold Pearl Bracelet: Timeless & Trendy
A gold pearl bracelet is hard to beat because it combines these two timeless and trendy materials. Gold and pearls add class to any outfit, and can easily take you from day to night. With our newest month of DIY jewelry boxes, our Del Mar Bracelet with gold and pearls is on trend and ready to stand the test of time.
This bracelet is half freshwater pearl and half gold-filled paperclip chain. Because the beauty of this bracelet speaks for itself, let’s dive into some FAQs about gold and pearls!
Freshwater pearls come from mussels, and are grown over 2-7 years. The beauty of the freshwater pearls in our Del Mar Bracelet (aside from their obvious shine and traditional pearly-white color), is in the small, natural variations in shape and size. Because pearls are grown layer by layer, they have slight variations in size and texture that add visual interest. Basically, they’re beautiful in their imperfection!
Pearls are found in riverbeds, lakes, and creek bottoms – anywhere mussels can grow. Because pearls are natural materials that grow in freshwater locations, they have been prized by royalty for centuries. There’s evidence of royalty wearing pearls as far back as Ancient Egypt and Rome, and more recently, modern icons like Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn favored strands of pearls.
The modern freshwater pearl industry began in the 1900s and continues to thrive today… Which allows us to offer our DIY gold pearl bracelets!
Gold-Filled vs Solid Gold
Before we go on, here’s a quick refresher on the difference between gold-filled jewelry and solid gold. Our Del Mar Bracelet comes with a gold-filled paperclip chain, so we’ll explain a few benefits of the gold fill!
Gold-filled bracelets have a thick layer of solid gold bonded to a base metal, making it stronger and more durable for everyday wear. Solid gold by itself is a soft metal that can scratch easily. By using gold-filled paperclip chains in our Del Mar Bracelets, you get the benefit of solid gold’s color and class, plus the durability to wear your bracelet daily!

From our Designer, Angela
I’m 100 percent sure that this 50/50 bracelet will never go out of style. How can you go wrong with stylish and trendy gold-filled paperclip chain? You can’t! Especially when it has freshwater pearls attached to it. How easy is it to wear everyday? The closure is a toggle….so… super easy. I can wear mine to brunch with the girls, a wedding, date night, or even a business meeting!
