How can you use a pearl necklace to create your own style?
When it comes to men’s pearl necklaces, you might still be impressed that the pearl-wearing style has suddenly become a new-generation fashion fave ever since Harry Styles’ pearl necklaces received tons of attention in 2019, followed by rapper ASAP Rocky, Pharrell, Billy Porter, and other stars who also led this trend.
This style of wearing pearls should make traditionally-minded people’s jaws drop because they don’t expect a pearl necklace to make a male temperament more yuppie. When you look at this photo of ASAP Rocky, have you noticed that men wearing pearl necklaces don’t lose that masculine feeling, but instead have a yuppie style, giving others a sense of charm and fashion?

Pearl necklaces for men and women are worn for completely different purposes.
Women’s pearl necklaces tend to focus on the perfection and luster of the round pearls to show off their elegant style. You may have noticed that pearl necklaces are a standard jewelry item for many members of royalty, as pearls don’t show off too much of a sense of luxury or opulence. A good pearl necklace can make that elegance more outstanding.
Men’s pearl necklaces, on the other hand, tend more towards matching combinations and aesthetic, mainly presenting the building of personal image and style. In the last year or two, men’s pearl necklaces have started trending and major brands are falling over themselves to launch fashionable pearl necklace lines for men.
Japanese jewelry brand MIKIMOTO and COMME des GARÇONS have co-launched a pearl necklace that’s been trending for a while. There are seven main design styles, with a length of 20″ (about 50cm) and three design variations. The first is a pearl necklace with a shorter pearl necklace underneath, the second one is a pearl necklace with a Link Chain underneath, and the third is a pearl necklace with a string of letters underneath. These three are definitely quite fashionable pieces visually.

MIKIMOTO x COMME des GARÇONS co-branded a pearl necklace in 2021 again for a second time. When you look at this photo, does it look familiar? I think we’ve seen it somewhere before, right?
That’s right, it’s the classic accessory from Marvel’s Black Panther movie franchise, and the two brands have launched a series of seven new pieces. The theme of this series is “pins, rivets, fangs,” which gives the pearls life’s passion and emotion.

Tiffany & Co has always been a trendsetter in design, and Tiffany & Co’s X Supreme collection is also very modern and ideal for men. Both these brands with their completely different styles have collaborated together to release new pieces at the end of 2021, offering fashion lovers a new impression of style through a cross-brand collaboration. The pearl necklaces in this collection have generated a lot of buzz and attention. The necklace, which can be worn by both men and women, has a simple design and a youthful character.

Another brand that focuses on fashion design, the Polish street fashion brand MISBHV, has a very clear brand positioning, with a simple logo and unique design. The brand aims to pursue confidence, individuality, independence and dreams using many street fashion elements to showcase the brand style. The design of their pearl necklace for men is a clever combination of a rough sterling silver necklace and pearls. It’s a trendy street fashion brand with a unique brand tone.

Personally, I like pearl necklaces made with different materials that can show personal style and charm more strongly through matching different materials. When looking at it from matching, pearls go great with any kind of material.
First, there’s the combination of pearls and metals. There are many different types of metals, from karat gold, sterling silver, to titanium and stainless steel, all of which are great for environmental protection, and this metallic feel can give pearls an extra touch of rugged individuality. The ICEHIPHOP store offers several distinctive men’s pearl necklace pieces. The pearl necklace pictured below uses stainless steel beads and a keychain, both of which add subtlety and masculinity to a pearl necklace for men. You can personalize it by placing the keychain on the front or on the side for different occasions.

The second type of cross-material combination is pairing pearls with sparkling stones such as diamonds, moissanite or zircon, which gives a mysterious and luxurious look that I personally love for occasions that require a bit of exaggeration. That’s the joy of cross-material combination. The ICEHIPHOP store’s pearl necklace for men does just this by selecting different materials with the use of stainless-steel Cuban Chain and a high-quality zirconia cross. The shape of this pearl necklace, even paired with the simplest wear can demonstrate your style in an instant.
