Pearls are many things: demure, elegant and understated. Their sophisticated reputation means that, over time, pearl earrings have become more synonymous with vintage fashion icons, like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, than modern-day cool girls.
Now pearls are being redefined, with less of an appetite for uniformly rounded stones and more of a shift towards pearls that are rough-around-the-edges, like ancient relics plucked from the ocean floor. Think: irregular shaped stones dangling from antique gold hoops, or mismatched gems nestled in jagged oyster shells.
