The love affair between pearls and royals goes way back. June’s birthstone was a favourite of Grace Kelly, Diana, Princess of Wales, and more recently, the Duchess of Cambridge. The Queen – owner of perhaps the most fabulous jewellery collection on the planet – is said to treasure a pair of pearl earrings she was given by Queen Mary in 1947 over all of her other pieces. Today, Michelle Obama, Sarah Jessica Parker and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are all on the list of high-profile women who keep their pearls on regular rotation (Whiteley recently showed off a pair of statement elongated pearl earrings from London brand By Pariah on Instagram).
