There's just something special about pearls. Elegant, stylish and timeless, it's no wonder pearl earrings are a wedding jewelry standard.

Today, there are more choices than ever when it comes to pearl earrings style. While you can never go wrong with a pair of white pearl studs, there are lots of less traditional options (think: chandelier earrings, pearl hoops and cluster earrings) out there as well. Thanks to marvelous mollusks, today you can choose from natural or cultured pearls that come in nearly every color of the rainbow and in all shapes and sizes. From those that quietly complement your wedding dress to pearl statement earrings that bring the wow factor, there's a pair to please any bride.
