"Not Your Grandma's Pearls"

Updated: Oct 23, 2018

Pearls are back and it looks like they are no longer just subtle, conservative pieces of jewelry. At least so says Hollywood.

Take, for example, Emmy nominee Laura Dern's pearl necklace, which was crowned most memorable jewelry moment on the red carpet. Celebrity A-listers such as Scarlett Johansson, Katharine Graham and Katherine Heigl, former American first lady Michelle Obama, talkshow host Oprah Winfrey and royal trendsetter Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, have a common ground in their taste for what has been termed as “Power and Pearls”.

Here're three more trendsetters who only this week said yes to pearls:

Fashion editor Anna Laplaca ("Who What Wear") says that that one of fall 2018 earring trends is all-out '80s-glam jewelry. "If you'd told me a year ago that I'd be jumping at the chance to wear pearl earrings right now, I'd probably have laughed in your face," she writes, and then goes on to explain that pearl earrings are now being reimagined in designs that feel anything but stuffy for fall.

Hollywood brings back pearls also in the form of hairpins. If you follow Regalia's Instagram account you have probably seen the pearl-studded bobby hair pins that have been seen on everyone from up-and-coming starlets like Lily James to bonafide stars like Ariana Grande and Tessa Thompson.

Celeb Mix magazine has listed the comeback of pearls as one of five "Celebrity Fashion Trends We’re Loving Right Now." "Whether you opt for a large and unique Baroque pearl or embrace lush and glossy strands and strands of pearls, this year’s celebrity fashion trends indicate that bigger is definitely better," the magazine reads.

So don't say you didn't know: pearls never go out of fashion. They always come back! #shoppearls
