What is a pearl? An irritant and a mistake, but also a precious and perfect ancient gem. The oldest pearl fragment was found in the sarcophagus of a Persian Princess. They were gifted to royalty in Imperial China. Claudia Schiffer walked for Chanel, dripping in them. Your own grandmother stunned in a set. A pearl is the beach in the summer. It’s salty water, bright skies, wet hair. It’s classic and chic. History is connected by a strand of pearls.
So we gathered some—A deep blue velvet Miu Miu scrunchy with a dangling monogrammed pearl. A single Alaia pearl nipple. Tassels on a Celine leather jacket. A Simone Rocha giant pearl bag fit for a mermaid.
