Whilst momentum for the popular Korean Bandis has dropped slightly, key personality of captain Quan Ji-yong G Dragon remains influential. His trendy looks impact fashion, and the pearl chain plays a huge part in his everyday appearances! Although the pearl chain is originally a "feminine" and more mature piece of jewelry, the neutral and stylish now expands to menswear, with GD repping the look and bringing it to the heart of fashion. Here are the hottest recommendations for men's pearl chains!
Mikimoto x Comme Des Garcons
Pearl expert Mikimoto collaborates with Comme des Garcons for a unisex series not to be missed! Alongside classic and simple white pearl styles, the collection includes everything from cool black beaded pearl necklaces, to single-loop and multi-loop styles!
Following massive response to the market demand last year, off the back of Mikimoto and Rei Kawakubo’s joint pearl necklace. The duo will pair together again in 2021 for a new launch involving seven new pearl necklace designs. The collection features 50cm silver chains, pins, rivets, fangs and Japanese Akoya pearls of 6mm to 7.5mm diameters!
Long pearl chains by Chanel have always been on every fashionista’s wishlist. By adding the beautiful piece to any outfit, elegance is instantly elevated! Whilst it’s every lady's dream accessory, GD’s numerous sightings wearing pearl chains has made him a male advocate for the look. Now, Chanel’s pearl chain has also become the number one must-have and on every man’s wishlist!
Tiffany & Co.
Tiffany & Co.'s pearl jewellery uses freshwater pearls as its key material. The colours include white and black. The pieces are available in single-strand pearl necklaces and single-pearl pendants. The collection also includes modern pearls in the design series, like Tiffany HardWear and Elsa Peretti. These accessories are super versatile and can be mixed and matched with existing metallic style jewelry, for a neutral and stylish aesthetic. This look is super effective for men too!
Tasaki takes a slightly different approach by combining pearls with diamonds as the core two elements. The result is a more unique design created through unusual techniques like splitting a round pearl in half, to reveal some of the metal area. These pieces are best suited to the pearl love who wants a more modern aesthetic version.
