Men walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes with Time’s Up pins could inspire a pearl jewellery trend, one jeweller has claimed.
Pearl-Lang, a contemporary jewellery line that offers a range of ethically-sourced pearl pieces, including earrings, bracelets and necklaces, is keen to draw attention to the pearl pins that were worn by A-list actors, including Tom Hanks and Sterling K. Brown.
Traditionally worn as a symbol of femininity, the rare gem received a progressive makeover as, in this instance, they were being sported to display solidarity with women in the industry that are battling with sexual violence and pay inequality.
Lulu Tyers, founder and creative director of Pearl-Lang, comments: “The Time’s Up movement is an inspiring example of women aligning to fight for a good cause, and what better way to represent this than with pearls?
“Known for their luxurious and individual qualities, pearls are one of the rarest stones on the planet and are now only able to be sourced from a handful of select locations around the world.”
She concludes: “Our brand is committed to celebrating not only the beauty and individuality of the gems, but also of the women that wear them, which is why I have designed such a diverse product line. Whether ladies are after simple pieces that they can wear all of the time or standout items that require special occasions, they are sure to find something that suits them and their individual taste perfectly.”
Pearls have also gain momentum following Brits binge watching The Crown, and being inspired by royal jewels.
