Those born in the month of June know that the pearl is their monthly birthstone, and whether or not you’re celebrating a summertime birthday this month, Elite Traveler has rounded up the best and most beautiful pearl jewelry for you to ogle at.
There are plenty of pearl options to choose from. Below you’ll find a selection of baroque pearls with rows of diamonds dangling from the strand, like the gorgeous Mikimoto necklace, or set into 18K white gold and surrounded by pavé diamonds, like Assael’s statement cocktail ring. Other pearls we love include South Sea golden pearls, seen in the marvelous strand from Jewelmer. Lastly, black Tahitian pearls set alongside white diamonds truly make the dark greenish-purple hue pop, like in Mastoloni’s bamboo-inspired cuff bracelet. Yael Sonia’s are a departure from your traditional pearl pieces with a distinct Art Deco-style that infuse a modern touch to this pair of earrings, while Yoko London’s pink-hued Akoya pearls are cascading with diamonds. Whichever you choose, pearls are timeless and these pieces are guaranteed to live in your jewelry box for years.
Read on for some of the most spectacular pieces that deserve a spot on your – or your partner’s – wishlist.
