Pearl is June’s birthstone, but did you know there are many more ways to wear this jewelry box classic than traditional pearl strands and studs? These are NOT your grandmother’s pearls, jewelry hounds. This season, its about adding edge and intrigue when it comes to celebrating the lovechild of those marvelous lil’ mollusks! From the runway to red carpet, we’ve seen a crazy assortment of some eye-poppin’ pearls.
From a mashup of pearl ear cuffs and drops layered to give that punk-chic allure like Balenciaga’s A/W 2015 collection (above) to Oscar de la Renta’s baubled techno plates evoking a pearlescent feel, these pearls certainly aren’t for the girl-next-door (below).
If you’re looking for something more subtle but still as captivating, then check out Pearl Collective’s White Souffle Pearl and Peridot Earrings which are sliced and coated with peridot (below).
But if you just want to add a bit of irony to your office-to-off-duty studs, check out these Side Spiked Pearls from Pearl Collective (above).
Suffering from a serious pearl addiction like our beloved glam goddess Lupita? Pearl adorned tops and dresses are having a hot moment this summer, and may even be easier to DIY than finding at your local TJ Maxx.
But from polished to punk rock, the top pearl trend with the most luster is Dior’s Tribale Double Pearl Earrings spotted on everyone from Stella McCartney to RiRi. Check out our pearl pieces for every style and budget right here in our Pearls of Wisdom Collection.
