A classic gemstone reimagined for a modern audience: Otiumberg pearl jewellery features heavily in our elegant wedding edit, but wears just as beautifully for the everyday as it does for special occasions.

How should I care for my pearls?

Pearls are a hard-wearing gemstone and can be worn everyday - in fact regular wear is good for the care of your pearl jewellery, as the natural oils in your skin keep your pearls moisturised, improving their lustre and glow.

Swimming in sea water will re-hydrate your pearls naturally, however if the pearls are threaded on a string the saltwater can damage their thread. Chlorinated water will damage your pearl jewellery and should be avoided. Due to their alkaline nature, hairspray, fake tan and perfume are all damaging to your pearls.

How should I style my pearl jewellery?

We design our pearl jewellery with a signature Otiumberg twist - perenially timelss and effortlessly wearable, it can be worn alone or stacked beautifully with the gold or silver jewellery of your choice.

Each piece is responsibly handcrafted from recycled precious metals and ethicallt sourced pearls.

Our bestselling Link Up collection is available in a pearl iteration, with a necklace, bracelet and anklet for casual everday elegance.

Our Ceremony Collection includes the pearl cuff, which elevates a formal outfit beautifully with no piercing required. It can also be combined with the matching pearl hoop earrings, or the dainty pearl drop earrings. Alternatively style with simple gold hoops for a more minimal look.
