Forever More Heirloom- Pearls are Back!

Pearls are the most beautiful jewelry for their elegance, simplicity and longevity. They are making a strong come back and are here to stay.

Tahitian Pearls

Akoya and Tahitian pearls come directly from the Japan Pearl Farms and Tahiti. These pearls are peculiar, natural stones originating in the south seas, refined in the most remote pearls farms, then crafted into a simple, sophisticated piece of jewelry and imported into many countries to please our craving for high quality pearls.

Known for their unusual colors, interesting shapes and affordable prices, Freshwater Pearls have won the hearts of millions lovers of pearls. I have to say that the quality of the Chinese Freshwater pearls has improved greatly. They are cleaner, rounder, and more lustrous. Freshwater pearls are mass produced and this is one of the reason for their affordability and popularity. Their sizes range from small 5mm approx. to 15mm and different styles.

Pearls Versatile look:

I found these photos in Pinterest that demonstrates a versatile way to wear pearls, giving them a trendy look. You can add a chain as well in combination with the pearls as on this photo. It really looks great. Instead of using a ribbon to put it all together I will use a plain silk rope in black kind of thin but strong to tied it all in place. It will look more professional and less conspicuous.  I don't  recommend to do this with sophisticated pearls such as Akoya, Tahitian, Japanese Southsea or any other very expensive pearls  just because those ones you need to preserve for those special occasion and they are treasure to safeguard.
