Growing up, pearl jewelry epitomized one thing and one thing only: classic glamour. Pearl pieces were to be paired exclusively with ball gowns and fancy gloves, making them a favorite of mine any time I went to play dress-up. As time went on, though, pearl jewelry was remixed, and then remixed again. It no longer felt exclusively reserved for the upper echelons of society; new iterations left the jewelry trend accessible to any aesthetic. And these days, pearl pieces are almost as commonplace as rhinestones were during the early aughts.

Now that we’ve lifted the veil of exclusivity that once barred pearl jewelry from the masses, out-of-the-box pearl pieces have made their way into fast-fashion retailers. Pearl-covered barrettes are on the sartorial menu. So are pearl-lined chokers and pearl-dotted bobby pins. Pearl-covered hoops have offered jewelry designers a way to capitalize on two earring trends at once; the hoop-drop hybrid feels endlessly edgy, no matter how many times it’s done.

The best thing about pearl jewelry isn’t its classic appeal or its aesthetic versatility—but the fact that it’s never a bad buy. No one will ever reminisce on the pearl jewelry they’ve purchased with buyer’s remorse or trend-follower’s regret. Pearl pieces are never not chic, no matter how out-of-the-box they are. Pearl jewelry is a no-fail purchase, and given the immense variety of unique pearl jewelry on the market right now, there’s never been a better time to stock up.
