Pearl Jewelry Trends 2021

Pearl is a queen of gems and a gem of queens” and 2021 knows it! Not only are pearls “alive and well”, but they are turning out to be the biggest jewelry trend in the upcoming year.

The revival of pearls kicked off a couple of years ago when they started making headlines after a long pause.  Today, they are finally enjoying the comeback they deserve.

The Raise of Pearl Jewelry Trends

The fact that pearls are as popular as ever is supported by the content of all major fashion outlets from magazine editorials, to red carpets, and fashion shows.  New York Fashion Week was probably the first indicator that pearls will be the biggest jewelry trend in 2021.  Another evidence is provided by Fashion Allure stating the following: “It is expected that the global pearl jewelry market will grow by over 13% by 2025.”.  So, if you’re still holding onto the notion that pearls are a thing of the past, it’s time to leave those thoughts behind you and step up your game.

Unique and Modern Pearls

More than just perfectly round pearls, designers are dabbing into the dreaminess and romanticism of baroque and cornflakes pearls.  It isn’t without the reason that we say imperfections are perfect, and these pearls are a true testament of that.  Their beauty is in their unique shapes that don’t have a specific form to conform to. Baroque and cornflakes pearls go great with more casual outfits to complete the everyday look but are glamorous enough to accent your evening cocktail dress.  They look equally well on bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings, and have a modern feel to top it off.

Of course, 2021 pearl jewelry trends could not go without including one of the all-time favorite jewelry pieces – the classic pearl earrings.  And this doesn’t refer to the stud earrings alone, but the simple drop earrings composed of a few pearls on a string.  They fall nicely down your neck and have an air of elegance and sophistication.  The beauty of the classic pearl earrings is never underrated and 2021 is well aware of it.  And the best of all – you can wear it everywhere and with everything!
