Judge the Jewels: Kendrick Lamar’s Pearl Tassel Redefines Casual Chic

Will men’s pearls expand in style across the board or is this daring level of dangle only for certain celebrities.




The sighting: Rapper Kendrick Lamar attended a Chanel fashion show in head-to-toe Chanel with a long pearl tassel necklace to finish the ensemble.

The jewels: Kendrick Lamar is wearing an extremely long open-ended strand of Chanel pearls that terminates in two large tassels at the ends.

The pearls are varied in size, alternating between large pearls, small pearls, and what appear to be metal beads or spacers. The tassels comprise strands of small pearls that each end in a large round or pear-shaped pearl. The top of each tassel features a large Chanel “CC” logo that appears to be embellished with stone pavé.

The trends: We’ve seen quite a few male celebrities wear single strands of pearls in the past few years, but Kendrick Lamar’s long, lovely pearl tassel takes this trend to a new level.
Will men’s pearls be expanding in style across the board, or is this daring level of dangle only for certain celebrities? Only time will tell.

What do we think? Lamar looks incredible here. I wouldn’t have expected to be excited about white pearls on a white shirt with a white jacket, but the lack of color contrast keeps this feeling casual, even with the extremely long necklace. The texture of the variously-sized pearls make the long necklace visually interesting the whole way around, all the way down to that wonderful tassel.

The pearls pull the whole outfit together and make it look like a chic ensemble for grabbing lunch in Paris rather than strangely proportioned pajamas. It’s giving stylish insouciance on a yacht and I’m here for it.

Judgement: 17/10 for a magnificent man pearl moment.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
