Gone are the days when pearls were considered solely as adornments for older generations. Today, leading designers and brands have embraced pearls, giving them a modern twist in the form of urban or even grunge Pearl Necklaces.

Origin and Significance of Pearl Jewelry

Pearls have been an integral part of fashion since ancient times, dating back to notable figures like Cleopatra of Egypt. While diamonds may overshadow them in fame, pearls remain a coveted choice for many women. These lustrous gems are formed not from grains of sand but often from tiny larvae that inadvertently enter oyster shells. Over time, the oyster coats the larvae with layers of nacre, the same substance that lines the inside of shells, forming a pearl. The larger the pearl, the longer its host oyster lived. Interestingly, only a small fraction of oysters produce high-quality pearls, making them precious and rare.

The Trending Appeal of Urban Pearl Necklaces

The resurgence of pearl jewelry in urban styles can be attributed to designers like Hedi Slimane, who introduced a grunge version of this classic accessory in Saint Laurent’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Brands like Valentino and jewelry designer Sophie Bille Brahe have also added a contemporary edge to pearls. Not to mention, the memorable Chanel S/S 2014 campaign featuring Lindsey Wixson.

The allure of oversized pearls, particularly double pearl necklaces, has captivated fashion enthusiasts. One brand synonymous with pearls is Chanel, as Coco Chanel herself was rarely seen without a string of pearls adorning her outfits.
