How to Style Pearl Jewellery

Pearls have dominated the jewellery world for many years now. They are one of the most long-lasting trends to grace the world of jewellery. However, in the past, they were typically set aside for special occasions or were a staple in your grandmother’s jewellery box. In more recent times, many brands have incorporated pearls into a lot of their designs. It is fair to say that pearls have taken over the jewellery world by storm again and have become one of the most popular trends this year.

At NJO, we have launched several different designs including pearls. We have everything from statement pearl earrings to the perfect minimalist pearl necklace that’ll compliment every summer look this year. Within this guide we aim to outline numerous ways in which you can wear our favourite pearl pieces.

Subtle Statements

When it comes to jewellery, sometimes less is more. At NJO, we are all about quietly-cool, fine jewellery and that is why we adore our 9ct gold freshwater pearl drop necklet and pearl drop huggie earrings. Not only will this pairing exude elegance, but it is a minimalists dream. It is subtle yet eye-catching. It’s one of our favourite looks!

Silver Lovers

Although gold is dominating a lot of jewellery looks right now, silver is sneaking its way into many designs and believe us when we tell you, it is not going unnoticed. We are loving its comeback! NJO’s silver shell pearl necklet is a gorgeous piece that can be worn alone or layered up. Go bold and mix and match your metals by adding a gold necklet into the mix. Our silver pearl drop huggies would take this stunning silver pearl look to the next level!

Something Different 

When you think of pearls, many people think of round pearls adorning a necklace, bracelet, or earrings. However, at NJO, we love bringing something different to the table and our mother of pearl enamel flower necklace does exactly that! We feature the beautiful iridescent mother of pearl in many of our looks. This unique design is a gorgeous take on the traditional pearl jewellery most people know and love. It’s perfect for any modernist or trend setter.

Go Big or Go Home

For those that enjoy going that one step further, add multiple pearl pieces to maximise your look. For the ultimate party look, layer up your jewellery and catch everyone’s eye. Our pearl open double hoop stacked amongst our 9ct gold pearl huggie earrings would make for a show-stopping ear look. Add some additional huggies and studs into the mix for an even bolder look. Mix and match our wide range of pearl, 9ct gold, and 18ct gold plated necklaces to elevate any neckline. Become the ultimate maximalist and throw some rings and bracelets into the mix to achieve your desired statement look.

It goes without saying that pearls aren’t going anywhere when it comes to jewellery. They’ve been around for years and will be around for many, many more. The way in which pearls are designed and styled has changed but they still look as chic and elegant as always. At NJO, we’re committed to the highest level of quality, and only work with premium metals - recycled sterling silver and 9ct gold. Our goal is to ensure your jewellery lasts for many years to come and not just for the summer.
