2018 has been the year of the pearl renaissance. For me, I don't feel like they ever even went out of style (case in point here, here and here). I am, however, impressed by what jewelry and accessory designers like Sophie Bille Brahe, Jennifer Behr and Simone Rocha have been creating with these precious gemstones. Their modern take on this traditional pearl feels modern and fresh and at the same time, timeless. From tiny clusters to a graduation of sizes, there's one thing for certain: these aren't your mama's pearls.
