Pearls Gone Wild: Studs, Chains, Claws

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Blame it on Chanel's golf-ball-sized-pearl-topped chokers, but the sunken treasure has broken free of its tasteful-princess-length-strand confines. Designers are playing with color and form—from Delfina Delettrez's surreal eye rings to Nektar de Stagni's transformation of pearls into mini medieval weapons. Check out a few of our favorite edged-up designs—plus some fun faux options—in the gallery.
