Pearls are quintessential to any woman’s wardrobe. We have seen and admired countless of fashion icons sporting pearl jewellery through the decades, from classic icons like Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn, as well as more contemporary personalities like Kate Middleton and Rihanna.

Far from something you’d pick out of your grandmother’s stash, pearls are the easiest add-on to any outfit you need to level up in class. Pair them with a crisp white shirt, a loose silk top or the fail safe LBD (Little Black Dress), for that effortless touch of elegance.

Check out our top pearl jewellery picks below.
