First made famous by the iconic likes of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, and Marilyn Monroe, it’s easy to see pearls as a thing of the past – something suited to older days. But, whilst their mainstream infatuation may have dwindled since their golden era of early Hollywood, pearls have never (and likely will never) go out of fashion.
In fact, in the past year especially we have seen a rise in the popularity of pearls, with pearl jewellery appearing on the catwalk and sidewalk alike, with A-list celebrities like Harry Styles, Pharrell Williams, and Michelle Obama regularly sporting pearls as part of their iconic looks.
Fashion loves to bring back an old trend, with 90s and now 00s fashion making a serious mainstream comeback, and pearls are another prime example of this notion of the classic becoming the contemporary.
This article will help you create a timeless, modern look with the help of the mighty pearl, showing you how to harness Majorica’s organic handmade pearl collection to elevate your look with elegant, timeless jewellery.
What Kind of Pearls Are in Fashion Right now?
You may think that a pearls are a somewhat of a one trick pony, suited only for luxurious events, but the reality is that this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Pearl jewellery has infinite different possibilities and styles to help you create infinite different types of looks, whether you have an everyday or elegant style.
Pearl Hoop Earrings
We all know how popular hoop earrings are in 2022. Whether big, small, silver, or gold, everyone is wearing hoop earrings, which means that pearl hoop earrings have made their own contemporary return.
Some are designed to sport just one pearl, whereas others feature multiple pearls strung along the hoop. Either way, pearl hoop earrings are trending and here to stay—the perfect modern accessory with a classic twist.
Pearl Drop Earrings
Pearl drop earrings are a wonderful way to incorporate pearls into your modern style. For a subtle look, invest in a pair of fine chain pearl earrings.
They tend to feature small pearls and hang next to or near the jawline, to perfectly compliment your facial structure and draw attention to all of the right places.
Pearl Stud Earrings
Stud earrings are a distinctly modern piece of jewellery, so adding pearls to your stud earrings is an excellent way of making a modern and unique statement.
The pearls can be as big or small as you desire, and pearl stud earrings can be gold or silver plated, to suit your favourite colour of jewellery to wear. Stud earrings are easy to wear, can be paired with other earring styles, and can be worn for any occasion – whether it’s a wedding or a house party!
Baroque Pearl Earrings
Whilst the name doesn’t exactly evoke a modern feel, baroque pearls are on the up, and trending in 2022.
They are a style of pearl that have a textured, irregular shape, making for an incredibly unique piece of jewellery – the perfect modern twist on the classic pearl. Baroque pearls come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and their interesting texture suits a splash of colour, with many baroque pearls coming in a yellow gold and rose gold colour.
