When to Wear Pearl Earrings

When it comes to jewellery trends in recent years, none have been hotter than the pearl resurgence. Pearls have always been a classy, elegant way to adorn ourselves, but once they hit the runway and the red carpet soon after, the trend was predestined to spread through the wider populace like wildfire. Which it most certainly did! Pearl earrings are very much in vogue right now – no longer just a staple in your grandmother’s collection. Designers are finding new ways to incorporate pearls into modern creations, manipulating size, shape, and colour to craft unique, bold new styles. 

So, when it comes to the question of when you should wear pearl earrings, now has never been a better time!


Pearl earrings are timeless. Regardless of form or shade, the beauty and versatility of pearl earrings make them stylish no matter the prevailing trend. A popular twist on classic pearl earrings is the combination of different size pearls for dramatic effect. Also, multi-pearl earrings make a spectacular statement.

Mismatched, geometrical, hooped, or draped – pearl earrings are showing up in all manner of styles and sizes. And on people of all ages and genders. So, take the plunge and get in on a trend based on a jewellery staple that will never fade from favour.

Mix it up

You may have a preconceived idea about what constitutes a pearl earring. And it probably harkens back to golden oldie movies and antique jewellery styles. Solitary pearls, ornate settings – beautiful, classic, and a look that will never go out of fashion. But these days anything goes when it comes to pearl earrings.

Pearls are being used in ways never imagined to create bold and daring designs that grab immediate attention. Incorporating contrasting, or complementary materials, metals and adornments, modern pearls earrings take a classic and up the ante to the next level.

The classic

Nothing says class and sophistication like traditional pearl earrings. With their natural shine and lustre, they are the perfect accessory to highlight and flatter your complexion. Delicate pearl studs are a jewellery collection must-have. Much like the little black dress, they go with everything and add a touch of elegance no matter the situation.

From Princess Diana and Duchess Kate to Scarlett Johannsen and Harry Stiles, classic pearl earrings are classic for a reason. They suit everyone, every outfit, and every occasion. All throughout history pearl earrings have been worn as a symbol of refinement and status. With no sign of losing their prominence any time soon.
