Pearls are having a renaissance like no other. For at least the past three years, the gems—be they freshwater or saltwater, akoya, Tahitian or South Seas—have been the belles of the jewelry ball. (It should go without saying that we’re talking almost exclusively about the cultured variety.)
Pair pearls with diamonds for a blingtastic look, and they are the epitome of sophistication. Set them in yellow gold, however, and something funny happens: Pearls assume the warmth of the precious metal, and with it, its casual elegance.
That’s the spirit that guided us in curating the pearl jewels featured above and below. Casual and elegant, if occasionally fierce, these pearls are perfect for those born in June (pearl is one of the month’s birthstones) and just about everyone else, too.
