Paris Fashion Week and Pearls

Paris Fashion Week and Pearls


Pearls are classic, but are they still trendy? Where better to look at up and coming fashion than Paris Fashion Week 2020. The classic pearl made appearances in just about every configuration—from single drop earrings to layered necklaces, and even crafted with ornate headpieces. From classic to baroque, what's new about the pearl trend is the character of the pearl and how you pair it.

One excellent pearl inspired highlight from Dior’s now-iconic Tribale earrings were one baroque pearl in front of the lobe, and one behind. Baroque pearls are twisted, not perfectly cultured orbs. See our recent article “Five reasons to go baroque” for inspiration on why these beauties steal the runway.  

Another fascinating bring from Chanel was Gigi Hadid wearing a pearl hip belt in the Chanel Metiers d’Art show. She donned a cropped tweed skirt suit without a top underneath. Styled around her bare waist was a belt comprised of multiple strands of pearls, with the Channel logo clasping the center in gold and pearl. It was one of the most striking looks in the collection.

Jil Sander's often polished pieces weren't totally immune to a bit of grit.  

She created a pearl-dotted black shoelace choker. Mixing high quality pearls with low brow shoelaces proved a captivating effect. Jill Sander adorned her runway looks with pearl lined open hoop earrings. Simple and elegant, they are a twist on the modern classic. She also added a simple pearl drop to gold open hoop earrings, which helped bring attention to her earth toned natural inspirations.                        

Simone Rocha introduced us to pearl adorned hair accessories and we all want in. Still. What look like 10mm pearl spheres and white silk flower treatments interweave gracefully at the top of a head band. This head piece could easily be matched with a shorter hairstyle, and only depends on how much ornate activity you like in your accessories. 

Buy it for less: If you’re looking for earrings like you see above, but cannot spend more than is necessary, consider Gemstory’s Gold open hoop with Pearl Drop Earring. Our best seller for a reason, they frame any face to its advantage.



And wait a minute. What was that Dior pearl necklace with a motley of gold charms? Stunning. 

Jason Wu gave the runway a moment of beauty with a pair of mismatched pearl drop earrings. One lobe drops a curved strand of pearls and the other- a single baroque piece to light up the model’s face and add balance to the effect. Pearls soothe and soften the brightest colors, so pearing the set with a bright fuschia scarf or jumpsuit proved just the trick. 

Marc Jacobs went classic pearl on the runway, with a freshwater pearl choker and single sizable pearl stud. The classical look nicely juxtaposed with a contemporary geometric white scoop neck dress.  

Prabal Gurung made some stellar pearl earrings, mixing geometric chunks of gemstones bezzeled in a classical style. We love the open cuff of pearls wrapping the entire ear. Speaking of cuffs, Prabal Gurung  brought in some dazzling ear cuffs. Capped in pearls, six wired strands spiral outward before culminating in a single pearl drop. Very special. 

We love pearls for their versatility. Pearls can be classic or contemporary, can be mixed with other gems or stand alone. We believe that fashion at its best must include pearls.
