Pearls are forever-classics in the world of jewelry, so it’s no wonder Grace Kelly favored them as she did. These aquatic treasures are constantly being reinvented, and jewelry designers today offer a wide array of modern variations on the long beloved classic. Read on to discover all the new styles you’ll most certainly want in your jewelry boxes.
Tiffany & Co
Tahitian Pearl Earrings in 18k Rose Gold
This pair from Tiffany’s “Tiffany HardWear” collection, crafted in 18k yellow gold with sizable South Sea pearls, are elegant without being even the slightest bit dainty.
Gold-Filled, Onyx and Pearl Necklace
Like Grace herself, Joie DiGiovanni hails from Philadelphia, where she’s been creating stunning pieces since 2012. This particular design, a lariat necklace comprised of vibrant green onyx and two giant freshwater pearls, is begging to be taken on your next tropical vacation.
Fijian Pearl Ring
A green Fijian pearl takes center stage, flanked by two matching garnets, in this one-of-a-kind (and sustainably sourced) ring from Assael.
Diamond, gemstone & pearl 18kt gold charm necklace
Leave it to rock-and-roll royalty to craft a pearl necklace that’s just the right amount of “fun.” This one from Jade Jagger features several diamond and gemstone charms strewn throughout eighteen inches of perfectly spherical pearl beads.
COLLIER LADY PERLES OR JAUNE
This necklace from Parisian designer Yvonne Léon features two strands of white cultured pearls in varying sizes, twisted and tangled just-so with 18k yellow gold, making it irresistibly insouciant (not to mention, wearable even for casual occasions).
Baby's Breath gold-plated pearl ear cuff
For the romantic inclined to tucking flowers behind her ears, we present this ear cuff from 14 / Quatorze, designed to resemble a cluster of baby’s breath. We’ll be wearing this with our hair pulled back for an ethereal spring party look.
