Pearls are one of those materials used to make jewelry that seem classic and timeless.

Unlike some materials, pearls seem to exude their own restrained elegance…

But what happens when you add spikes and pearls together??

Some really great jewelry!

Japanese jewelry designer, Saya Hibino has paired classic pearl stud and drop earrings with some decidedly unusual accents.  Her new earrings combine white, gray and black pearls with little rows of either sterling silver or gold spikes:

The spikes turn the pearl earrings into something very hip and contemporary – but still totally wearable.  These are her gray pearl earrings with 14kt gold spikes, on matching ear wires.

Or if black pearls are more your style, you can get them on ear wires with either 14kt gold or sterling silver spikes as well.

You prefer a post-style earring?
