Power Pearls: Kamala Harris Is Re-Inventing A Fashion Staple
One of the biggest highlights of 2020 onwards in the political sphere is Kamala Harris, a woman who inspired the world through her motivation and drive to succeed. However, her inspiration was not limited to politics but also fashion.
Kamala Harris has always had a taste in jewelry and fashion. From classic pantsuits to timeless pearls, she has managed to write a bold fashion statement globally. In history, pearls have always symbolized power, empowerment, and influence, and that is just what Kamala is, a symbol of wisdom, hope, inspiration, and female empowerment.
She also inspired the biggest pearl retailers and distributors in the United States, The Pearl Source, to launch Power Pearls, a curated collection of pearl jewelry inspired by influential women throughout history. The Kamala Harris line will be the first to be launched in March, and we take a look at the collection she inspired.

In the words of Leon Rbibo, the president of The Pearl Source, “Pearls have long been a symbol of beauty, resilience, career mobility, and female empowerment,” He adds that Pearl Power proceeds will help to support and empower women.
Kamala Harris, just like how she inspired women to wear pearl jewelry during the inauguration, will also inspire people to acquire these modern yet timeless classics and make a fashion statement. Pearls are beautiful and environmental friendly as they are grown instead of mined like other gems that have caused pollution.
