We have been so into classics lately, and it doesn’t get more classic than pearls. Some of fashion’s most iconic images involve pearl accessories, like the elegant Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Her character Holly Golightly refused to wear diamonds, deeming them too old (although now, it’s maybe considered the opposite). Then there is also the iconic Coco Chanel, a woman that preferred pearls to any other jewelry.


Far from old-fashioned, pearls are essentially timeless: a beautiful heirloom to pass from generation to generation. Stars today embrace them just as much as in the past, from edgy Rihanna to elegant Sarah Jessica Parker to hip Olivia Palermo and Anne Hathaway to classic Angelina Jolie. Pearls are ‘in’ for everyone.

Rihanna and Sarah Jessica Parker

Two extremely different women, two extremely different pearl necklaces. For Rihanna’s look, try the layered look with Siman Tu’s pearl choker (and if that’s not enough, layer every single pearl necklace you own over it!). For elegant simplicity like Sarah Jessica Parker’s, go with one strand only with David Aubrey’s stunning necklace (it comes with a brooch too for extra POW!). Of course, one could never go wrong with adding a little pearl to our wrists too – we suggest Miram Haskell’s pearl flower bracelet.

Olivia Palermo, Anne Hathaway

These two young trendsetters both rock pearl earrings, but in very different ways. Olivia Palermo plays it up casual with her pearl studs, her hair down and minimal make-up. For Olivia’s look, we suggest Kenneth Jay Lane pearl earrings with gold rim (it makes them a little more special). At last year’s Oscars, Anne Hathaway worked it Old Hollywood style with a combination of pearls and diamonds. For a similar (but more affordable) effect, we look to glamorous earrings by Jaques Fath.

Angelina Jolie

And then there is Angelina Jolie, a woman that seems to adore pearls, seen wearing her Mikimoto earrings and ring on several occasions. We are all for pearl rings: they make such a great visual statement. We especially love them really chunky and preferably surrounded by Swarovski crystals like Jacques Fath’s and Vita Fede’s.
