Pearl Jewellery at the Brits

The Brit Awards are a great annual celebration of the best UK music, however in recent years it’s been great to see Pearl Jewellery at the Brits, being showcased by the stars.

At the Brits in 2020 Harry Styles caused a stir arriving in a stylish brown suit accessorised with a white pearl necklace, it’s an image that was splashed across news sites and fashion blogs across the UK in the days and weeks that followed

Harry Styles actually changed outfits three times at the 2020 Brits, switching into a lace jumpsuit, again accessorised with a pearl necklace, to perform Falling, then changing again after his performance to end the evening in a yellow tuxedo. Is this the night Pearls for Men arrived, no actually we need to look to the US Music scene and Hollywood, it was perhaps Pharrell Williams who was the original trendsetter wearing layered pearl necklaces on a catwalk for Chanel back in 2016.

Since then we’ve seen A$AP Rocky wearing a pearl necklace on many occasions, including at the Grammys. Singer Shawn Mendes has worn pearls are numerous occasions and many other stars of the US music scene have joined the trend.

In 2021 we might have expected it would be male stars who would once again steal the limelight with pearl jewellery, but that is not how it panned out and this year the look that is featuring heavily in the media and in fashion blogs is Dua Lipa’s.

The star was nominated in three categories, and received the Best Album award for Nostalgia, also the Best Female Solo Artist award, yet it is perhaps for her iconic fashions that night the she will be most remembered. She chose the veteran punk fashion designer Vivienne Westwood for her outfits, starting the night in a stunning yellow silk mini dress with train, accessorised with a fabulous triple strand pearl choker and double strand pearl bracelet. The stylish punky look was a show stealer, and also once again put pearl jewellery centre stage at the Brits.

Historically we may have looked to the catwalks of the major fashion shows to get an insight into the latest jewellery trends, and to get an idea of what is going to be hot in the coming season, but times are changing and a much more relevant indicator of the jewellery styles and fashions that people are actually going to buy and wear can be seen at the Brits and the Grammys.

2021 Pearl Jewellery Fashion Trends

Historically pearls represented innocence, purity and femininity, however the latest fashion trends are far more dynamic and irreverent. The changing image of the pearl mirrors how the status of women in society is changing to be bolder and more powerful.

Pearls are one of the hot jewellery fashion items for 2021. The trend is being driven by both adoption by ‘twentysomethings’ in bold designs, with novel accessorising, and by global celebrities and fashion designers.

In the US pearls have long been worn by the First Lady in the Whitehouse. Jackie Kennedy favoured a triple strand pearl necklace, whereas Michelle Obama wore supersized pearls. We now have a Vice President, Kamala Harris, who loves pearl jewellery and at this years inauguration wore a stylish pearl necklace designed by New York based designer Wilfred Rosado. Rosado’s hip-hop inspired necklace, combined heavy gold chain links with lustrous white pearls.

It was not only Kamala Harris who chose pearls for the inauguration. Jennifer Lopez wore statement pearl earrings, youth poet Amanda Gorman wore a pearl ring gifted to her by Oprah, California Congresswoman Barbara Lee wore a pearl necklace, and Jill Biden had a pearl embroidered collar.

Over the last year Harris has helped reinvent the style of ‘political pearls’, choosing bold powerful jewellery styles and pairing them not only with business suits but also with Converse pumps and Jeans. In the coming year we expect to see more of Kamala Harris’s reputed $20,000 pearl jewellery collection, which includes a large black baroque pearl necklace and a long gold station necklace, which often wears double looped.

It is not only Kamala Harris who is pairing Pearl Jewellery with casual fashion styles. We’ve seen American fashion model Gigi Hadid sporting pearl necklaces with tie dyed t-shirts and jeans, pearl earrings and baseball caps, ripped denim and pearls, baroque pearl drop earrings plus endless other casual pearl fashion looks.

In the UK we have seen popstar Harry Styles break conventions by adopting both pearl earrings and pearl necklaces as part of his fashion accessories, prompting a new trend for men adopting pearl jewellery.

In Vogue fashion designer, and LVMH Prize finalist, Charaf Tajer recently said “When we play with Pearls we take the macho man into a situation of more softness. When you show your sensitivity, you can show your strength as well.”

In the UK, despite Jewellers being closed, the interest in sourcing Pearl Jewellery online has remained strong, as gifting and Zoom fashion has maintained demand. Once the latest lockdown ends the desire to socialise, dress up and enjoy long lost freedoms will undoubtedly see pearls take centre stage as one of this years must have fashion accessories.
