I wore my pearl earrings yesterday, i’m 51. They are a classic look that never date and look classy. Loads of celebrities wear pearl earrings, have a look on Pinterest. There are loads of styles and colours available.

I always wear small pearl studs, have done for at least a decade, I think they work well with long dark hair. Bizzarely I got complimented the other day by a woman in her twenties who suddenly said I love your earrings. I was slightly bemused. The studs have to be the warm cream colour though and not the white fake look.

I wouldn't wear the necklace too.

However I have never been into big or colourful earrings. I never wear necklaces, although I have several very thin silver bangles on one wrist, and an expensive watch on the other. I tend to go understated I guess and woild never go statement jewellery.

I think it depends on personal style.

I'm late 20s and love my little pearl studs that I have. Several friends have larger pearl earrings too so don't think old fashioned. Would wear the necklace or the earrings though, too matchy matchy otherwise

I have Tiffany pearl studs which I alternate with diamonds that match my engagement ring. Don't wear any others. I love them. Wouldn't wear a pearl necklace though.

I am 35 and have worn pearl studs for many years. I think they are a classic piece of jewellery.

Pearl necklaces are also classic, but I think they are more popular with the older generations, and I wouldn't expect to see classic pearl necklaces on younger women.
I don't have one myself, and I am not looking to buy one.

I wouldn't wear a pearl necklace with pearl earrings - I'd probably wear the necklace with diamond studs.

I think pearls always make your skin look nice.

I love pearls! Always have. I’ve got pearl studs, pearl drops and a couple of strings of pearls. I don’t wear the earrings and necklace together as i think it’s too much for me. I’m in my 30s and have been wearing pearls for over a decade.

Late 30s and I love my pearls - have done since I was late teens. I have lots and wear them often (although only one piece at a time).

I wear pearl studs, love them. I think they catch the light and illuminate the face, very flattering for everyone, go with everything as well.

Where do you all buy the studs please? I can only ever find tiny ones that look like the studs used when people have their ears pierced!

I read, years ago, that the creamier shade of pearl can really give a halo “brightening” effect to the face.

I wear very little jewellery but have a few pieces that I’m prepared to don. Pearl earrings and necklace are one - I love the feel of pearls and the milky iridescence. They are timeless and so much more flattering than bling for daywear.

White pearls are not "fake", how ridiculous. Whiter shades suit cooler skin tones and and creamier shades suit warmer tones. They definitely brighten the complexion. A photographer once told me that pearls are the best jewellery you can wear near your face.

62, and still wear pearls. My favourites are dark grey, but I also have pink-ish and white. All baroque, though I shall eventually inherit DM's classic single string. Less keen on earrings, but that's because my earlobes are small. And I would not wear a matched set don't love the dowager look.

I wear them too - rarely necklace and earrings together, though
