pearl jewelry is everywhere these days but until a few years ago pearls were resigned to nothing more than a pearl necklace or the essential costume to wear to a Gatsby themed party.

Through a clever reimagining of the traditional jewelry gemstone, we see pearls in all their glory – from delicate pearls on hugs and dainty rings to large irregularly shaped stones on chunky gold chains, bold chunky pearls on earrings and beaded styles. too.

Duchess Kate was spotted at Wimbledon wearing a pair of pearl earrings

It also helps that Kate Middleton is often seen in her pair of Annoushka pearl earrings, whether it’s a glitzy red carpet event or an informal royal engagement, and relies on classic pearl pieces and modern pearl jewelry to elevate her look, whatever the occasion. We loved Kate’s pearl necklace from Monique Vinaderin pictures too.

Pearls are considered as cool as they are classic these days – from street style pearl jewelry to designer pieces, there’s plenty of pearl jewelry to choose from. Shop our favorites:
