May The Pearl Girls present… The Pearl Boys!
The most interesting thing has been happening in the world of pearls these days… Men are wearing pearls! Classic strands of pearls! I see them all over! I want you to know that these stars are not wearing any of The Pearl Girls gems however I thought it would be fun to show off how pearls truly are everywhere (even on men!!)!
Many years ago I did a post about the funky pearls of Pharrell:
And I am not sure I will ever be able to forget this image from the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in 2005. What a handsome
man pearl! Here is Pierce Brosnan wearing a simple black pearl.
A Fashionista and His Pearls
And recently the fashion designer and fashionista Marc Jacobs is wearing his go-to strand of pearls! I am talking about the classic, walk through life, gorgeous single strand of pearls! Look at these images of Marc Jacobs that I grabbed off of his Instagram account! In so many of his images he is wearing a simple, classic strand of pearls! At work, at leisure. It is a wide array of pearls and selfies!
Singers in Pearls
Singers are joining The Pearl Boys trend, too! Harry Styles is a solo artist from England who got his career start with One Direction and now is out on his own. I saw a spread of his in a magazine once and was quite surprised by his wild and eclectic style. And, yes, his pearls! Here are, again, some photos from Instagram:
How far does this new trend reach? Well, there is another group of boys, brothers, who wear matching pearls. See The Jonas Brothers in pearls:
Canadian singer Shawn Mendes decided to go a little more baroque in his choice of pearls. He also appears to have a more relaxed style. I have always said you can wear your t-shirt with your pearls! Shawn seems to agree!
Then again, a jacket and pearls works, too!
The list seems to go on and on. I saw images of singers Usher and A$AP Rocky in pearls and rumors of more. I guess these men are tired of women having all the fun with pearls. And thus the pearl boys took a cue from the pearl girls and got their own strand of pearls.
I am a modern day treasure hunter who travels the world for gorgeous pearls and amazing adventures. I own a pearl jewelry and jewelry repair business, ThePearlGirls.com, with a cute retail store in Athens, GA.
