Perfect pearl earrings: From simple studs to investment-worthy showstoppers


Pearl earrings add timeless class to any outfit but that doesn’t mean they have to be stuffy or old-fashioned. It’s all about balancing traditional elegance with modern shapes and silhouettes, from clustered hoops to simple diamond accents.

Stellar jeweller Sophie Bille Brahe knows how to craft a pearl, and her designs are the gifts that keep on giving (should you be so lucky). From boucle-style encrusted hoops to her Botticelli drops and oversized rosettes to dangling floral chandeliers, if you invest in just one designer this season, you’ll be spoiled for choice with her treasure trove of unique creations.

Elsewhere, timeless, everyday studs with added flourish come courtesy of Valentino Garavani and Annoushka, while vintage-style Chanel danglers will always bring a certain je ne sais quoi to the party. Mizuki adds contemporary shapes and silhouettes to the mix, while Mateo’s extensive range of pearl masterpieces is another collection to add to the wish list.

Not sure where to begin? Here are the best pearl earrings to buy now.

Annoushka diamond and pearl drops
