Pearls are back, but not like your grandma wore them

A world away from the single strand necklaces that hung elegantly from the necks of our mothers, grandmothers and aunts, the modern-day pearl is a decidedly contemporary piece. Recently seen scattered across international fashion weeks and runways in avant-garde designs and unconventional settings, the pearl is alluring in its simplicity and versatility. A ladylike accessory that works ironically well when paired with staunchly masculine fashions, they have the ability to transcend time, and these exquisite designs are a fine example of how we should be wearing them in this day and age.
