Model and “it girl” Gigi Hadid has been spotted again and again wearing pearls. Earlier this year, she was seen walking around New York City wearing a pearl choker necklace with a tie dye shirt and white capri pants. She’s also been spotted with a pearl chain attached to her sunglasses and wearing freshwater pearl earrings with a casual, all-black outfit.
At the 2019 Golden Globes, actress Judith Light paired a long wrapped Sidney Garber pearl necklace with a white long-sleeve Christian Siriano gown. The monochromatic look was both dramatic and chic.
Musician Cardi B arrived to the 2019 Grammy Awards dressed as a pearl in a clam shell. A vintage Thierry Mugler design from 1995, the clam shell dress had a dramatic pink ruffle meant to resemble a mollusk shell and pearl details around the waist and neckline. But the pearl theme didn’t stop with her clothes: she also had pearls wrapped around her updo. To see a photo, click here.
Queen Elizabeth is always stepping out in her pearl jewelry, no matter what the occasion. Her favorite pieces include a three-strand pearl necklace, which is said to be a gift from her father King George VI, a Patek Philippe watch with a five-strand pearl bracelet, and a diamond and pearl brooch that she received from the queen mother.

Kate has also been spotted wearing some special pearl earrings two years in a row on July 14th, and then again when she met Crown Princess Victoria in Sweden. One keen observer noticed that these earrings were designed by a Swedish jewelry designer, and Kate wears them to celebrate Princess Victoria’s birthday, which falls on July 14th. What a great way to wish someone a happy birthday!
Pop star Zendaya recently arrived at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards wearing spiral pearl hoop earrings and an extra-long braid. We love how she paired this casual pearl look with an oversized collared shirt.
