    Emma Watson

    Watson showed up to the Golden Globes last month wearing Dior’s Mise En Dior Tribal Earring ($410, 212.931.2950). We love how the ivory-colored pearl contrasted with her tomato red dress and berry lipstick.

    Chanel S/S 14

    While the necklaces were arguably the most talked-about pearl accessories on the Chanel runway, we were especially drawn to this cage-esque bracelet. It’s the perfect statement piece.

    Elena Perminova

    We squealed with delight when we saw this chic pearl ring on Perminova in Paris last month. She capitalized on the ladylike piece by pairing it with soft pink nail polish and a furry bracelet.

    Thakoon S/S 14

    No longer reserved for jewelry, Thakoon’s S/S 14 runway proved there’s a place for pearls outside the realm of earrings and necklaces.

    The Wolf Of Wall Street’s leading lady stepped out in New York wearing insanely cool Jacob & Co. Pearl & Diamond Spider Earrings (212.719.5887), and the result was a complete success.

    Olga Kurylenko

    The French actress attended the Chanel S/S 14 show wearing Lagerfeld’s matching bracelets embellished with bold, pearl studs. They were a surprising contrast to her otherwise conservative look.

    Rihanna

    We can always count on RiRi to be ahead of the curve when it comes to trends, which is why weren’t surprised when we spotted her in this Pristine pearl earring back in November at the American Music Awards.

    The ethereal quality of Saldana’s Aurelie Bidermann Pearl Cuff ($645) paired perfectly with her ruffled Rodarte gown at the Star Trek: Into Darkness premiere earlier last year.

    Shala Monroque

    We’re always waiting with bated breath to see what Creative Director of Garage Magazine will accessorize with next. We were delighted to see how she transformed a simple strand of pearls into the centerpiece of her ensemble.

    Street Style

    If you have an upcoming soiree to attend, we suggest experimenting with a pearl-embellished hairpiece a la this street styler. Not only is it charmingly feminine, but it’s also an unexpected way to draw attention to your look.

    Abigail Breslin

    The August: Osage County actress paired a Henrietta pearl earring with a fishtail braid to create a red carpet look that’s worthy of a second take.

    Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage

    Warne’s ensemble in Florence last month made us rethink our notion of the pearl earring. She wore a Delfina Delettrez Fishing For Compliments Mono Earring ($626), which thoroughly complimented her bold Mary Katrantzou Silk Crepe Chiffon Shirt ($1190).

    Street Style

    If you have an affinity for stacking rings, we suggest you take note of this eye-catching street style savant. The clusters of pearls are a refreshing take on the stacking trend, and add a fun, tactile quality to the look.
