Pearl jewellery isa classic option for any jewellery wearer. Offering timeless style through the years, from the Pearl Age of the 15th and 16th century right through to the bright lights of 1950s Hollywood and movie stars that have since become household names, pearl jewellery has been a staple fashion piece in anyone’s jewellery box. 

Pearls have long been associated with glamour, luxury and style, but there are many more benefits to be had by wearing pearl jewellery, and that includes wearing pearl earrings. So how can the act of simply wearing pearl earrings benefit you? Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of pearl earrings.


Pearl earrings are said to offer spiritual benefits to the wearer

According to Fire Mountain Gems, freshwater pearls have many spiritual benefits on offer. There are some people who think that freshwater pearls have both metaphysical properties and geological properties. Metaphysical properties and benefits seemingly include: balancing body rhythms and hormone levels, harmonising humans with nature, tapping into inner wisdom, bringing truth forward and enhancing personal integrity, to name a few.

Those within the world of spirituality claim that different types of pearls provide different spiritual benefits, such as Tiny Rituals. Tiny Rituals claims that pearls offer wisdom, as well as the ability to heal, in more ways than one. In addition to physical healing, Tiny Rituals states that they can also aid in the mental and emotional healing of a person. Regardless of the spiritual benefits that pearls are said to have, they still make for a stylish finishing touch if you’re looking to be fashionable.


Pearl earrings are considered to be timeless & versatile

One of the great things about pearl earrings is that they don’t age. They’re forever a fashionable jewellery piece that can be worn by anyone and that will compliment any outfit you choose. Pearls also have the ability to take a look from daytime to nighttime. You’ll be able to wear pearl earrings to the office during the day and then adorn them proudly on the dancefloor on a Friday night. Being a jewellery item that can be worn with any outfit, whether you’re off to the gym or are attending a dinner party, it’s no wonder that pearls have remained so popular over the generations.


There are different types of pearls on offer

Not all pearls are the same. If you think of pearls, there’s usually one that comes to mind, and, typically, that’s freshwater pearls. They’re round, white and are available in a variety of sizes. However, pearls can differ in colour as well as size and they do come from a variety of sources. There are, primarily, two types of pearls: natural pearls and cultured pearls. Natural pearls form in the tissue of certain molluscs. 

They form without the intervention of humans, unlike cultured pearls. Cultured pearls, on the other hand, require the intervention of humans. In this day and age, most mollusks are raised for the specific purpose of forming pearls, making it more engineered today than it would have been a hundred years ago. However, this has made pearls more affordable. According to GIA, the different pearls on the market include:

  • Akoya cultured pearls
  • South Sea cultured pearls
  • Tahitian cultured pearls
  • Freshwater cultured pearls


Pearl earrings can be worn by anyone, of any age

Pearl earrings are a timeless classic that can be worn by anyone. From young adults right through to the elderly, pearls are able to elevate any outfit to the next level. Pearls are adorned by people of all ages. With no age limit of the wearing of pearls, you’ll be just as trendy and stylish as the next person. There’s a reason why pearls have stood the test of time, and that’s because they can be worn by everyone.


Pearl earrings supposedly have a number of health benefits

According to Medium, numerous studies have been carried out on pearl items in order to determine whether or not they provide any health benefits to the wearer. One study suggested that wearing pearl jewellery can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, with another study claiming that they can be worn to improve sleep quality and improve the metabolic processes of the hippocampus. 

However, Healthline found that it could, in fact, be pearl powder that offers more health benefits than the wearing of complete pearls. This is because pearl powder contains amino acids, trace minerals, high levels of calcium and antioxidant boosters. Combined, these things offer a wealth of health benefits, including:

  • Stimulating skin cells to produce collagen
  • Promoting cellular repair and hydration
  • Protecting the skin from pollution and other outside elements
  • Maintaining the overall health of the skin
  • Promoting skin regeneration and moisture
  • Regulating sebum and cell turnover
  • Helping bone strength
  • Fighting against osteoporosis
  • Boosting superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione
