Why Pearls are THAT Trending Right Now
Updated: Mar 11, 2021
Pearls have been getting a makeover for the past couple of years and they come out of their traditional shell with stunning new designs. Every type of pearl, from South Sea to natural baroque to Akoya is continuing to evolve with current vibes.
Recent market research done by Orbis Research found that we're only at the beginning of a long-term market trend of pearls that will last until 2025. We estimate that a big contribution for this up-going trend (at least in the jewelry market, since the research shows growth of demand for pearls also in the medical field) is top designers like the Chanel, Miu Miu and Alexander McQueen's consistent use of pearls. Karl Lagerfeld's death in February 2019 also caused media and celebrities to focus their attention around Chanel's designs even more.
Pearls have been used in jewelry for hundreds of years, and the constant look to reinvention somehow always involves this classic-magical-nature-made stone. For example, the "Neo-Parisian" style was prominent in this year's Paris Fashion Week, and with pearls that were always prominent among the French, it means that the emphasis is on tight jewelry around your neck or wrist.
From Teen Vogue to Vanity Fair - everyone is talking about pearls as the must-have jewelry item for Spring -- AND fall of 2019-2020. Vogue France lists pearl earrings among the 10 most searched wedding trends of 2019. Forbes magazine says that among this year's jewelry trends, pearls are the one jewel that translates well from runway to reality. There's also a tendency to make sure the pearls are on bare skin rather than on a dress, for a younger, fresher look. Look at supermodel Gigi Hadid in New York earlier this month, and there's no better example than Gigi to demonstrate the fashionable wearing of pearls.
Pinkvilla published an article on how to sport pearl jewelry with any outfit - inspired by Priyanka Chopra, Reese Witherspoon and other stars.
And Refinery29 says that this spring pearl jewelry is experiencing what they call 'a revival' and becoming extra fun, extra colorful, extra "extra" cute. From all of that the road to endless articles like 'Affordable Accessories That Can Transform Your Wardrobe,' is very short.
Jewelry designer Ulti Ramos says that the most important thing to make sure when you buy freshwater pearls is that the color of the pearls is identical throughout your whole piece, or pieces that you’d like to wear as a set. “It’s also important to make sure that the stringing of the pearls is done right,” he says. “It gives the the necklace or the bracelet its special shape, and also prevents all the pearls from falling and spreading on the floor if something happens and the piece gets torn."
