The new wave of pearl jewelry is sleek and modernized. High fashion is starting to distance itself from street fashion, in favor of a more classic look. And nothing conveys this shift to a long-established style quite like the pearl necklace.
But how are Pearls used in fashion today? How do you modernize something so timeless? Here are 5 ways to modernize the pearl.
ADD SCULPTURAL ELEMENTS TO THE PEARL
The runway look this year is edgy and sculptural. If you’re looking for pearls with a contemporary edge, consider a sculptural element in your jewelry. Look for designs that playfully harness the beauty of pearl.
TRY A BIT OF ASYMMETRY: To modernize the classic pearl, go with either an asymmetrical setting in the hardware of your jewelry, or try an earring set with two distinct pearls. Baroque pearls are excellent for asymmetry, because no two are alike!
These Of the Nile Pearl Hoop Earrings are just the flavor for a great piece of lustrous asymmetry.
EMBRACE THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF PEARLS
In their raw, organic form pearls are stunning. Instead of choosing the rope of pearls lovingly handed down to you by your Grandmother, try something that highlights the beauty of a single pearl.
TOUGHEN THEM UP WITH CHAINS
Pearls are a soft material, something you can see by looking at their glowing luster. To update your pearl jewelry collection, consider thick gold chains to contrast the delicate pearl.
Stacking jewelry is still very much in style. If you want to highlight the beauty of a pearl, and stay on trend this STACKED GOLDEN PEARL NECKLACE is for you. Stacking highlights the curve of your neck, while the pearl adds a spot of light to your overall look. We can’t recommend this necklace enough!
