From beauty icon Elizabeth Taylor to modern divas like Rihanna, pearls are a timeless classic. Today’s wedding day pearls have taken on a more modern flare, yet they still remain one of the most time honored traditions and favorites of brides to wear on their special day.
Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue. That’s the saying. But if you’re wearing pearls on your wedding day – and you’re certainly not alone – there’s a good chance that your gemstones likely fall into the “something old” or “something borrowed” category.
…at least that used to be the case.
Today’s pearls, the simple, elegant, timeless classic you likely remember from your mother or grandmother’s jewelry box, have gone through a major makeover. These aren’t your mom’s pearls, and brides are pulling off new looks and styles seemingly effortlessly.
Unless you’ve been in hiding, you’ve likely noticed pearls making quite a comeback lately.
From the red carpet to the campaign trail, we’re in the midst of a pearl resurgence – just ask Allure
Magazine, which recently claimed that pearls are in the middle of a fashion renaissance.
The evidence seems to support the claim. Stars such as Kim Kardashian, Ellen DeGeneres, Lupita Nyong’o, Kris Jenner (she even recently launched her own line of faux pearl jewelry) and Beyonce (yes, we’re still talking about her famous pearl-studded Met Gala dress – wow) are bringing the look to new heights.
And brides? They’re doubling down. Into more of a classic look for your wedding day? Try a fashion mainstay, like these South Sea pearl stud earrings (see below) from The Pearl Source. A beautiful strand of Japanese Akoya pearls around the neck work nicely, too.

Looking to create more of an edgy, fashionista vibe on your big day? Don’t be afraid to mix it up with different
colors. Pearls come in other colors besides white: pink, peach, gold, peacock and more.
So forget that bit about “something old” or “something borrowed,” at least when it comes to your wedding day pearl look. This year’s bridal styles will include pearls of the “something new” category – new styles, new looks, new creativity.
How will you be wearing your pearls for your wedding day? We’d love to hear all the details! Leave us a note in the comments section.With Love,
