8 Pearl Jewelry Designs That Aren’t Just for Special Occasions

Pearl Jewelry Designs

Pearl jewelry designs have a reputation for being reserved for classy occasions and worn by women like Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Bush and Princess Diana. Not to worry. You don’t have to attend the Oscars or a White House dinner just to wear a pretty pearl necklace. Pearl jewelry designs can be paired with so many different styles and for so many different occasions.

Stop thinking of pearls as a fancy piece of jewelry and start thinking about how you can incorporate them into any occasion. These pearl jewelry designs will provide plenty of inspiration.

Even beginner beadweavers can tackle this pretty necklace. Combine pearls with seed beads and bicones for a design that’s simple yet elegant. Wear it with a more open neckline to really show it off.

Autumn Pearl

Just because this pendant is named for fall doesn’t mean that’s the only time you can wear it. This pattern could easily be turned into a pair of matching earrings, too.

Earrings with Swarovski and Round Pearls

These earrings might just remind you of lace. Seed beads, bicones, and pearls make a great team for this design. These would look amazing with an updo that brings all the attention to the earrings.

Flowers in Pearls with Leafy Vine

This is an example of how pearls can go totally casual. (I had to look twice to make sure there were pearls in there!) Pearls look right at home among these shiny SuperUno beads. If you do want to make your flowers a little fancier, try classic color combinations using silver, gold, black, gray or other neutrals.

Pearl Ruffle Bracelet

I definitely let out a gasp when this bracelet popped up. Yep, those are freshwater pearls buried in that seed bead ruffle. Designer MoreThnSomewhat has tested so many gorgeous color combos for the bracelet. You’re sure to find one that floats your boat.

Olive Pearl Ring

Fancy rings are one of the easiest pieces of jewelry to pull off since they’re not as noticeable as a necklace or earrings. You could even wear this one with a T-shirt. Since it’s a small piece of jewelry, you might even find all the supplies you need right in your stash.

Golden Drops with a Pearl Earrings

You may not even need a pearl to create your own version of these earrings. I love how the pearl adds a bit of extra length to an already-eye-catching earring, but the pearls are totally optional since the copper wire has the power to stand on its own.
