The Pearl Next Door: 8 Modern Ways To Wear Pearls

Fact: pearls are everywhere

hey, pearl

Once reserved for Granny's jewellery box, pearls have been given a fresh makeover that is currently making appearances on just about every IT Girl's Instagram. The gemstone of the moment first made major waves on the Spring 2019 runways of Oscar de la Renta and Prabal Gurung. 

The classic preppy and ever so perfectly spherical shaped pearls are a thing of the past. Our eyes are now on pearls that are oddly shaped, unique in colour and glaze. Stacked, bejewelled, dropped and strung, jewellery that was once reserved for your Granny's jewellery box has now become wearable pieces for the everyday. 

 Given their irregular nature, the "new" pearls tend to be far friendlier to our bank accounts - and that is a welcomed bonus.
