The Best Pearl Earrings + Places to Buy Them

Share this post:

Watching Inauguration Day 2021 in the United States of America, I noticed a fashion theme amongst the attendees (besides those knit mittens) -- the best pearl earrings!

I myself had also recently just overhauled my pearl jewelry collection, so I felt inspired to share my top picks for the best pearl earrings with you.

But first, since this is a book pairings blog, I am thrilled to pair this blog post with the book Classic Style, one of my favorite preppy books. As a preppy person in my heart, who was struggling to keep up with trends, this book transformed my approach to style. It made me feel it was "okay" to be classic (it's also sustainable), and it has the most beautiful watercolor illustrations. It's an all-time fave that I highly recommend for your bookshelf or coffee table.

Buy on Amazon.

And without further ado, below are the best places to buy pearl earrings, followers by the best pearl earrings: stud; hoops; drop; dangle; Chanel; Kate Spade; button; and cluster.

Best Places to Buy Pearl Earrings

Best Pearl Earrings


These stud pearl earrings from Kiel James Patrick are my go-to for the most classic of looks. Their products have excellent quality, and we order from them all the time. And they are affordable!

Buying tip: If you sign up for Kiel James Patrick's email list, you can usually get a discount code.


I have a style of pearl hoop earrings from J.Crew that is very similar to this dainty style, also from J.Crew, and I wear them all the time. I am always reaching for them, and they always give just the right amount of accessory for a "going out" escalated casual look. I would consider these to be a great lower-priced option.

Buying tip: Check J.Crew's website for current discount codes.


These specific drop pearl earrings from Kiel James Patrick are my new favorites! As mentioned, I love this retailer and this style really stands out as a more classic statement piece at an affordable price for both casual and dressy styles.


A simple gold earring with a dangling pearl is also such a classic look. I love to sport this style when I am wearing a standard business suit, to feminize my look a bit more.

Vintage Chanel

MY TOP PICK: Did you know that Etsy sellers make earrings out of vintage Chanel buttons at rock bottom prices?! Well, they do, and just LOOK at how beautiful the results are. If you see a particular style you like on Etsy, shop quickly, as they are all unique and tend to sell quickly. In my humble opinion, this is one of my absolute best shopping tips ever!

Kate Spade

Kate Spade always has a great selection of pearl earrings, and I have worn many of them over the years! I love the very minimal feminine scallop details on this particular set.


These specific button earrings from Lisi Lerch (my current personal favorite jewelry retailer -- with great sales too) give that Palm Beach / Lilly Pulitzer look to really up the preppy vibe of any outfit.

Buying tip: If Lisi Lerch is having a sale, rest assured you are getting a great deal!


I also have and love these cluster pearl earrings from Lisi Lerch and think they are another great option to give you an ultra preppy statement look.

Buying tip: If Lisi Lerch is having a sale, rest assured you are getting a great deal!
