35 Pairs of Pearl Earrings Perfect for Your Wedding Day
Warning: These are not your grandmother's pearls. While you may immediately think of a classic stud when you hear the words "pearl earrings," know that they're not your only choice. So many designers are creating modern earrings using this freshwater precious stone, and they're especially pretty for your big day. From dotted hoops and ear crawlers to asymmetrical danglers, we found some seriously stylish pearl earrings to complete your wedding-day look.
Pearl earrings can be classic or daring, over-the-top or so dainty that you just might miss them. If you're the type of woman who refers a traditional piece of jewelry, Jamie Joseph's cultured pearl studs are a great option for your wedding. Jemma Wynne's Prive White Pearl stud with diamond is a nice update to the classic pearl pair, thanks to a tiny diamond dangling from the bottle of the stud. A modern soon-to-be-Mrs. might gravitate towards Hortense's geometric styles, like their "Spaceship" ear crawlers or the geometric, two-toned "Majorette" earrings. Mateo New York also plays with geometry, with pearls nested in a half-moon design.
Hoops aren't out of the question, either. Mizuki Pearl's marquis hoop earrings and Zoe Chicco's circle post earrings (the a pearl resting mid-hoop and circle) are two ultra-cool takes on this signature earring style. High fashion-loving brides, on the other hand, might choose Gucci's bee earrings with drop pearls or Dior's now iconic "Tribales" pair. Another fun way to update the traditional stud is to embellish it with gems, like Kataoka's pearl handle earrings and Lauren Wolf's gray pearl claw style.
