Pearls are Officially Summer 2021's Hottest Jewellery Trend - Our Round-Up of the Best Celebrity Pearl Looks

It's official, pearls are THE jewellery trend of summer 2021. From a classic strand of round pearls to all-out 90s nostalgic rainbow beads, my Insta feed is bursting with pictures of celebs - both male and female, accessorising their summer fits with this year's must-have jewellery. 

Here's my roundup of some of the best celebrity pearl looks I've spotted, and how you can recreate the look with Vellva's own vegan-friendly crystal pearl jewellery. 

A$AP Rocky 

First on the list is A$AP Rocky, one of the undisputed leaders of the men in pearls movement. A$AP takes the pearl, once seen as certified 'grandma jewellery', and turns into something effortlessly cool and contemporary by mixing and matching different shaped and sized pearls within the same necklace stack.

To recreate the look, team Vellva's La Bianca, an extendable choker-length necklace handmade with mixed sized baroque pearls, with the Per Sempre, a longer length necklace handmade from frosted matte round crystal pearls.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall's necklace is the epitome of contemporary pearl jewellery. In half pearl and half bead, it's part classic, part nostalgic fun, making for a surprisingly versatile necklace that works as well with a dressed up look as it does for the beach.

Gigi Hadid

Minimalists, look away now - Gigi Hadid's maximalist, rainbow mash-up combines pearls and beads in different colours, shapes and sizes to create the ultimate summer necklace stack. The star of the show is her giant pearl choker, a true statement piece that really makes the look - the pearls add class and style and keep the beaded necklaces looking nostalgic rather than childish, while their surprising size makes them fun and contemporary.

Harry Styles 

No list of of pearl-wearing style icons would be complete without Harry! Once associated with the traditional, demure sense of style favoured by the Queen and female politicians, pioneers like Harry Styles, Pharrell and Shawn Mendes have reclaimed the classic string of pearls and turned it into the symbol of rebellious, genderless fashion. To steal Harry's style, team a classic round pearl necklace like Vellva's La Principessa or Per Sempre and team them with a loud printed tee or an unbuttoned colourful shirt for a fresh, summery look.
