In case you didn’t know, 2022 is the year of updating and reviving previous fashion trends, so it should be no surprise that we’ve observed a new one emerging.
The fashion cycle has spoken: pearls are once again shining brightly. It’s time to search in your Jewellery box and find that classic pearl necklace you haven’t worn in a long time because pearls are making a comeback and the contemporary spin this gemstone is getting is hard to ignore. It has earned the timeless tag people once attached to it.
The contemporary twist on pearls is anything but the preppy and aristocratic looks they are typically associated with. The modern improvements to the gemstone are considerably more upbeat and frivolous, enabling people to wear them in various ways and styles.
Starting with the high-end runways this past fall, brands like Chanel and Tom Ford hinted that pearls were making a comeback and that the way they were to be worn was eye-catching, distinctive, and strictly modern.
Pearls are now found everywhere, either simply to be worn in the form of Jewellery or used in nail art. Pearls are a prominent trend on the most incredible fashion runways and are also widely used in celebrity and inspiration sites on social media.
Pearls are timelessJewellery that have come back into style during the past few years. But these are not at all like the ones your grandmother made. Organic pearls and pearls worn with gold chains this season create a contemporary yet feminine aesthetic. Celebrities, including Gigi Hadid, Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, and others, are seen wearing them. Additionally, pearl earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings are available from every brand, including Gorjana, BaubleBar, Gucci, and Mejuri.
Why only upcoming celebrities? Look at the royalty in England, and you will notice the same trend. A triple pearl necklace and a pair of pearl and diamond stud earrings given to Her Majesty, the Queen, by her grandfather, King George V, are her go-to Jewellery pieces for formal events. It has turned into a classic symbol of the Queen. Her Majesty received the studs, also known as the Queen Mary button earrings, from her grandmother. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, frequently dons more contemporary looks, such as pearl droplet earrings, as part of the new royal family’s continuation of the trend. Famously, Princess Diana chose pearls as the focal point of her ensemble, which came to be known as her “revenge dress” style.
And if the image of pearls that comes to mind is still an antique string of tiny white globes: reconsider!
A wide variety of beautiful Jewellery is available, with modern, asymmetrical forms, droplets, and hybrid Jewellery that combines different stones and metals. With the emergence of pearl engagement rings, pearls are starting to threaten the traditional diamond as the stone of choice.
Its affordability in the present times is another reason for its popularity among many. Historically, pearls were valuable Jewellery reserved for aristocrats, but they are now more widely available and frequently look just as good as genuine pearls.
