PEARL JEWELRY WAS already enjoying a moderate rise in popularity when Kamala Harris chose pearls as the signature accessory for her history-making rise to vice president. The lovely, ladylike pearl took on fresh luster as it appeared again and again behind podiums of power. When women of all ages bedecked themselves in pearls to honor Harris’ inauguration, it became clear that we were truly at the dawn of a new age for the pearl.

These are the pearls you wear to change the world. Brimming with possibility, they radiate strength and confidence with their dynamic lines, strong angles, and the unapologetic way they take up space. Most of these designs are subtle subversions of classic: They’re bold, but they’re still flawlessly elegant. These power pearls pair perfectly with “I’ve got this.”
