THE LUSTROUS LUXURY OF PEARLS HAS BEWITCHED HUMAN BEINGS FOR CENTURIES NOW, from the unpredictable whorls of a gnarled baroque beauty to the smooth sheen of a scientifically-perfected cultured pearl. We’ve come a long way from monotone drops in simple strands; the pearl pieces of today are playful, fearless, and ready to break rules.

OVER THE PAST few years, we have seen almost every style of earring imaginable on A-list actresses. From large hoops to small chandeliers, from shoulder dusters to streamlined linear silhouettes, from cuffs to climbers, an earring renaissance is in the offing. At the Emmy Awards, earrings that sit close to the ear were revealed to be the newest style to watch. They can range from mid-20th-century-inspired earrings that rest on the lobe with a sprinkle of diamonds or gemstones, to current and creative versions of huggies that are anything but classic and seem to be getting a modern makeover as the earring revival continues.
