Forget a last meal, what would you pick as your last jewel? For King Charles I, it was a single pearl earring, oversize and set in a gold crown. Doomed to the guillotine by Oliver Cromwell in 1639, Charles’s oversize pearl was part of his signature look and he famously insisted on wearing it to his execution. What would inspire such devotion to a gem–especially from a man who also owned a pendant set with 42 diamonds? In the 16th and 17th centuries, pearls were considered to be the highest form of jewelry because they were natural wonders (unlike gemstones which needed to be cut and polished). Royal and noble men wore them frequently, even Sir Walter Raleigh wore a pearl stud in each ear.

Pearls were the ultimate power accessory–and they still are today. Perhaps Harry Styles was channeling that kingly swagger at the Met Ball in 2019, when he put on not one but two pearl earrings in his left ear, the same as Charles I. Certainly A$AP Rocky, who regularly, brilliantly combines Edwardian-worthy gems with streetwear, has learned what a statement even a single pearl can make. And let’s not forget Elton John’s layers upon layers of pearl necklaces; forget lucky charm, this was full-on jeweled armor. They all make a convincing argument that more men should consider pearl jewelry as a staple accessory. It’s unexpected sure, but also traditional, the kind of piece that quietly commands attention, not shout for it. Below, our favorite pearl jewelry for men to wear to every occasion.

The Remedy // Chapter ii Necklace



Inspired by Italian writer Dante Alighieri, this necklace was designed as a beautiful antidote to his imagined “Land of the Lawless.”

The only thing better than one pearl ring is stacking multiples of them. These Bora Bora rings are based on the Polynesian myth that pearls are created as the moon bathes the ocean in its light. 


Safety Pin Necklace

MIKIMOTO Comme des Garçons


This second collection of Mikimoto with Commes des Garcons lets pearls mingle with punk motifs, like a single sleek safety pin. 


Esme Baroque Earrings

Men’s Tahitian Pearl & Onyx Necklace

ORA Pearls


This pearl and onyx necklace delivers some serious sultriness with a mix of textures and dark hues.

Long necklaces are just a little secretive. Worn under a collared shirt, there is just a hint of gold chain, worn over, the gold-set pearl is a real head-turner. 


Gold Handcrafted Sandalwood Tahitian Pearl Diamond Mala

Luis Morais


The casual, rock & roll-meets-bohemian vibes of this necklace reminds of us something Lenny Kravitz would wear (and what better endorsement is there than that?).

White Pearl Pendant

Eli Halili


Designer Eli Halili takes cues from ancient Middle Eastern designs to create his modern jewels in Brooklyn. A hand-forged gold setting encases a pearl pendant in this strong, yet delicate, necklace.
