Can Men Wear Pearls?
Whether you’re shopping for a man in your life or purchasing jewelry for yourself, one of the most common questions we hear is, can men wear pearls and still look…well…manly? The answer is yes. For decades pearls have been associated with feminine energy. But recently, pearls have been seen in a more masculine light representing strength and stability. The 21st century has proven that men’s fashion has no rules and that past boundaries placed on style were made to be broken.
The Evolution of Men’s Jewelry
With athletes and male celebrities wearing pearls daily, it might seem like men have just begun to sport pearls. But that’s not the case. Men have been wearing white pearls with pride for decades, and evidence of men in pearls dates far back in time. Historical art from India, Greece, China, and Great Britain all feature men of high regard wearing pearls with honor.
The Symbolism of Pearls
Unique men’s fashion accessories are a way to speak without words, and previous cultures knew this. For centuries men and women have worn pearls and other precious gems to symbolize wealth, power, and nobility, all while making a fashion statement. In the past, a man wearing pearls spoke volumes about his place within society.
Modern-Day Men and Pearls
Pearls have always been prominent in men’s fashion, but today’s men wear them very differently. Pearls are no longer reserved for the wealthy or royal and are instead incorporated into everyday styles to meet the fashion needs of modern men. Today’s pearl pieces often include unisex and masculine looks that elevate casual and formal fits. During the pandemic, pearl jewelry for men boomed in popularity as the increase in online meetings encouraged men to look for ways to show off their style from the shoulders up.
Instead of wearing the traditional string of pearls that their grandmothers wore, men are now wearing modernized pearl pieces paired with chains, hoops, and silver and gold accents. The depth of these pieces brings out the masculinity in the gem, making these jewelry pieces the perfect accessory and pearl gifts for men.
Pearl Jewelry For Men
We’re living in a post-quarantine, 21st century where many of us have to make a lasting first impression via a computer screen. Jewelry is the easiest way to elevate a look, and pearls are sure to get noticed. If you’re shopping for yourself or someone you love, and are considering adding pearls to your jewelry collection, here are four pieces we recommend starting with.
Pearl Hoop Earrings
Earrings have the ability to complete a look and draw attention to strong facial features. They’re also one of the first pieces someone will see when looking at your outfit. Pearl hoop earrings scream confidence and can be worn in several ways. Our Pearl Hoop Earrings come in a silver and 14k gold finish and are the perfect pearl addition to your earring collection. In addition, the lustrous-colored natural shell pears are durable enough to withstand daily wear while remaining a luxury accessory.
A pearl necklace is a great place to start if you’re just dipping your toes into the world of pearls. Pearl necklaces are practical, modern, and budget-friendly. They are also the fashion accessory of choice for men who go from casual to formal attire in minutes. Our Pearl Rondelle Necklace blends a timeless men’s pearl necklace with masculine accents to add a modern spin to a classic style. Likewise, the Cuban Link Pearl Necklace offers an edgier, more masculine look that is comfortable and smooth without sacrificing luxury. With options in gold and silver, you can wear a men's pearl necklace that fits your distinctive style.
