Cultured Pearl Boom: Fashion and Gender Norms Propels Global Pearl Jewelry Market Growth to 2031

DUBLIN, Sept. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Pearl Jewelry Market By Type, By Material, By Pearl Nature, By Pearl Source, By Distribution Channel: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2022-2031″ report has been added to’s offering.

The global pearl jewelry market, valued at $2.77 billion in 2021, is poised for remarkable growth, projecting an estimated value of $41.99 billion by 2031.

This impressive projection is underpinned by a robust Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.2% from 2022 to 2031. Pearl jewelry holds a timeless allure and has been adorned for centuries, representing elegance, beauty, and sophistication.

In 2021, the necklace segment led the market, capturing the largest market share as pearl necklaces continue to be one of the most popular types of pearl jewelry worldwide. Pearl jewelry encompasses a diverse range of items including necklaces, earrings, rings, and more. Crafted by embedding pearls into exquisite designs, these pieces exude grace and charm. Notably, pearls can be embedded either alone or in combination with other stones or metals, creating a stunning array of options. The market focuses on pearls’ various shapes and sizes, while the study does not cover different pearl colors due to the unpredictable nature of color during the manufacturing process.

While natural pearls are rare and expensive, most pearls used in the pearl jewelry industry are cultured. Cultured pearls are produced by imitating the natural pearl formation process, involving the introduction of a seed into a mollusk. Cultured pearls, particularly freshwater ones, are more accessible due to the ability to culture multiple pearls from different mollusks simultaneously. This accessibility is driving the demand for cultured pearl jewelry.

However, challenges related to pearl cultivation such as the health of mollusks, water quality, and duration of pearl production impact cultured pearl production. Over-cultivation in freshwater pearls can harm the environment and reduce pearl quality, while saltwater pearls face challenges due to the scarcity of mollusks and maintenance difficulties, thus affecting pearl jewelry production.

The market is witnessing a shift in gender norms, with men increasingly embracing pearl jewelry. Millennial and Gen Z consumers are defying traditional gender-specific norms, embracing jewelry for personal expression. Pearl necklaces and rings are gaining popularity among male consumers, adding to the market’s growth.
