CARRIE K. PEARL BAR
"Just because it hasn't been done before, doesn't mean it can't be done"
How do we revolutionise the classic pearl necklace, a look that has remained unchanged for centuries? In 2015, I made my first attempt to redesign the silhouette of the classic pearl necklace with Carrie K.'s “Pearls of Wisdom”. I designed it after my mother gave a great advice – “Just because it has never been done, doesn't mean it can't be done.” Customers liked how “Pearls of Wisdom” looked but longed for something even easier to style and change the looks on their own. Learning from that we set out to redesign the pearl necklace once more.
With Carrie K.'s new Pearl Bar, we unveil a line of pearl necklaces that isn't just versatile to fit every style, occasion and neckline, but can be assembled quickly and easily whilst walking out the door to work, and can be “pimped up” for red carpet statement glamour. I hope you'll be stirred and shaken by our pearl necklaces. #DaretoPearl and show off your unique style, be it classic with a twist to elegant with an edge!

You'll never wear the pearl necklace the same again.
You may have liked the idea of wearing a pearl necklace but hesitated doing so because it looks too traditional or isn't your style. You may have even taken them out of the drawer only to wear once every few months. With our Pearl Bar, we're reinventing how the pearl necklace is perceived and worn. Discover how you can wear the pearl necklace that suits your pearlsona and occasion.
"...Knowing how underrated pearl necklaces are, Carrie K came up with what might well be this century's most ingenious and liberating way to wear them."
Presenting Carrie K.'s Duō accessories, an interchangeable clasp that connects two parts of the Pearl necklace together to create many possible looks.

Pearls for your big day. And every day after.
