Wearing pink is so passé. In 2021, real men wear pearls.

A trend ever since Harry Styles took over as the it-man in the world of fashion, pearl necklaces for men seem to be on an ever-rising high. Fashion houses are sending male models down the runway donning a hot string of pearls, and even dressing some of their favourite celebs with the beloved gem. There are entire Instagram accounts dedicated to boys in pearls, and everywhere we look, we seem to be drawn to the man who boasts them around his neck.

Nevertheless, pearls for men are not exactly a new invention. Even the maharajas of India used to wear them in the past. There’s something extremely powerful about them, and whilst woman have long known pearls to be a classic staple, it’s fun to see more men embrace this trend, too.

All for genderless clothing and experimenting with what feels and looks good, scroll ahead for our pick of pearl necklaces on famous men — and where to buy them.
