Diamonds may be a girl's best friend and all, but there's nothing like a good string of pearls to add instant polish to any ensemble. Even if your style is a little less lady-who-lunches and a bit more deconstructed glam, it's possible to rock the freshwater gem without heading too far outside your comfort zone. In fact, we especially love the way a girly pearl accoutrement clashes with a moto jacket in the most perfectly unexpected way.
But, even if you don't have the budget to buy the real deal, we rounded up 10 pearly pieces — both vintage costume options and genuine pearls — that'll add an element of sophistication to any getup. Everything from gray pearl hoop earrings to an ethereal antique wire-and-pearl hair crown, right this way.
