The Pearl Earring

While the most valuable pearls occur spontaneously in the wild, and are very rare – in 2016 you don’t have to be a deep sea diver to be the Girl with a Pearl Earring. A painting I not only admire, one which I actually recreated for Halloween once to much acclamation.

Needless to say, pearls are a thing of beauty, from classic strings of them to the modernized iterations seen today in faux form like these oversized earrings from Marni. It’s fun to put a youthful spin on typically old-fashioned costume jewelry. I may never own a string of Mikimoto pearls but you bet I’ll be embracing these!

  • I love pearls worn with casual, everyday outfits like jeans and Ts. They lend softness and lustre to quite hard and masculine/androgynous clothes, or look quirky and slightly off-kilter when they are natural and rough, with dresses, or suits.

    My favourite ways to wear pearls are either as a short string of very tiny freshwater pearls with my usual leather and gold short necklace; and as a single, highly irregular, natural pearl stud of about 1.0cm x 0.75cm, which I wear high on my ear, along with my other ear piercings. That large, single stud always draws comments, as it looks like a small cloud amongst the other earrings, and I like it, because it reminds me of the boldness of Tibetan jewellery and its people.

    You should really check out Saskia Diez! I bought the Pearl Pop earrings a couple of months ago and couldn’t have been happier. Great quality, reasonable prices and they lift every casual, everyday outfit and you support an artist.

  • I am not a big fan of pearls, but I do love that ear cuff from Anissa Kermiche!!
