A Brief History of the Pearl Engagement Ring

History of the Pearl Engagement Ring

From Emma Stone to Ariana Grande, why is everyone getting engaged with pearls?

The pearl as engagement ring is not entirely new—Barbara Hutton got a black pearl ring one time out of seven—but it is an unusual choice. And, given the delicate properties of the pearl—a devotion to care is required.

Daphne Lingon, Head of Jewels for Christie’s Americas, explains that “pearls have always been a classic staple in jewelry and have transcended time and fashion. While pearls may not have always been regarded as a choice for engagement rings, this is a trend that is emerging. When selecting a pearl ring, you will need to decide if you would like a cultured pearl or a natural pearl, the latter being the more expensive of the two choices and then the overall style from the Edwardian or Art Deco periods or a more contemporary look. You will also need to take extra care of a pearl ring, especially if it’s being worn every day as the material is organic and does not wear as well as a diamond, sapphire, ruby, or other gemstone.”
