The Best Pearl Earrings for Adding Polish to Any Outfit

Pearls are a classic wardrobe staple, just as appropriate for a wedding as they are for everyday wear. Their pure luster and natural warmth look beautiful against any skin tone and add a touch of elegance to any outfit. These three options are all affordable examples of just how versatile pearls can be.

This is it: the classic pearl stud that will never go out of style. Made of genuine AAA grade 7-8mm freshwater cultured off (nearly) round pearls, these elegant studs look just as great for an evening on the town as they do for feeling put together for work. The posts are made of hypoallergenic .925 sterling silver and the earrings weigh 1.3-1.5 grams. Like all the earrings here, this set comes in a small gift box. The backs can get a little loose, so we recommend replacing the metal earring back with a clear rubber stopper-style one.

These lovely drop earrings would be a great gift for yourself or any of the women in your life. They include a 9-10mm white freshwater cultured pearl and a delicate cubic zirconia accent above the pearl. They measure 1” from the top of the wire curve to the bottom of the pearl, long enough to be noticed, but not so long that they’ll get tangled in your hair. The .925 sterling silver fish hook-style back can be pinched to close a little more securely, or you can add a rubber back if you’re nervous about them falling out. They come with a 60-day money back guarantee and a document attesting that the pearls were harvested from pearl farms in China and haven’t been dyed in any way.

These halo studs are eye-catching without being ostentatious. The 4.5 – 5mm white freshwater cultured pearl is surrounded by manmade white sapphires and delicate, vintage-inspired detailing. Like the other earrings reviewed here, they have a hypoallergenic .925 sterling silver backing. The filigree detailing is plated with rhodium to add shine and increase the earrings’ longevity. Though they have a little flash, these earrings’ small size makes them appropriate for both daytime and evening wear. They have a tendency to tip forward on the ear, but replacing the butterfly back with a clear disk back stabilizes them.
