The Eroticism of the Pearl Necklace

Although it was in the above scene from James Camerons blockbuster Titanic 1997 not a pearl necklace, but a diamond necklace. However, it is abundantly clear that jewelry can seem very erotic Act on a beautiful woman.

A tasteful woman would have adorned themselves probably anyway much better around 1912 with beads as with diamonds, for the appreciation of fine natural Pearl reached its absolute peak against the beginning of the 20th century. This is mainly with refined taste: the nouveau riche diamond merchants and industrialists of the 19th century had it with its predilection for lavish ladies, with expensive jewelry so exaggerated, that diamonds were already downright obscene. There was the classic understatement of bead necklaces but equal to something completely different.

Outright it was a scandal, when the controversial Artist Mel Ramos in the sixties was an attractive blonde in tantalizing pose on an oversized hamburger years. The good was dressed with nothing but a long string of pearls. And yet: what was here to caricature of consumerism and erotic advertising, culture has a long history.

Looking at classical sculptures of the Renaissance or the Baroque, pearl jewelry is omnipresent. Just the traditional naked depicted figures from classical mythology are often decorated with beaded necklaces and matching earrings . The Pearl, at the same time a symbol of seduction and purity, is included as a continuous motif by the painting of the time. Venus, who pushes her clothes before the bath, but not the pearls, which she wears around her neck. Society ladies left hand often only with a Pearl Necklace dressed in oil for posterity. It was not a too big step in principle, because the deep, decorated with pearls cleavage of that time not much more concealed by the female charms, which likes to put the artists in scene.

The erotic effect of Pearl is confined not only to the European area. “Let’s get to the fun an exit with twenty young from the Netherlands”, says in an ancient Egyptian novel, “and give you nets made of beads instead of dresses, so I revel me it.” But even local erotic mail-order companies offer lingerie that is filled with beads – unfortunately with imitation pearls. One waits in vain on the underwear from breeding or even natural pearls since Cleopatra’s time.

The soft glimmer of a bead on at least as well matt, shimmering skin is an aesthetic delight. And even though with the advent of the freshwater cultured pearl bead necklaces are already long not so exclusive and prohibitive as in earlier times, so the myth still alive yet.
