RECEIVING PEARLS AS A GIFT MARKS A SPECIAL OCCASION IN ANY WOMAN'S LIFE.
We carry the classic Akoya Cultured Pearls, fine Fresh Water Pearls, Tahitian Pearls, and South Sea Pearls. We offer the traditional knotted strands of pearls and pearl stud earrings as well as designer pearl jewelry with gold or gemstone accents.
We can match pearls that you already own to extend or replace missing and damaged pearls.
For our youngest Pearl recipients, we have the Add-a-Pearl necklace.
This cultured pearl necklace is the gift that keeps on growing as you start with one cultured pearl attached to a petite 14kt yellow gold cable link chain. A pearl is added for each special occasion until the child's pearl necklace is a complete strand.
A natural elegant accessory perfect for any special occasion.
Wearing and Caring for Your Pearls
Pearls are surprisingly absorbent and need to maintain a certain level of moisture in order to retain their bright color and lustre. One of the best ways to do this is simply to wear them. They absorb natural oils from the skin, which tops up their moisture levels. Otherwise they turn a dull, yellowy brown and lose their lustre.
There are also a number of chemicals that pearls are susceptible to when worn. The biggest offenders are:
Perfume and hairspray: these both contain relatively powerful solvents that dissolve nacre.
Cleaning products: we recommend strongly against wearing pearls while using a household cleaning product.
Other beauty products; the best thing to do is apply your make-up and perfume, wait a couple of minutes and then put your pearls on.
Finally, we advise caution when wearing pearl rings. We glue our pearls onto a relatively thick metal post, but a sharp blow or simply wearing gloves over the pearl (gardening seems to present a dangerous combination of these circumstances…) can break the post or knock the pearl off.
We thoroughly recommend that pearls are kept in a soft cloth, such as a pouch, to prevent scratches. Jewelry boxes contain a lot of sharp edges that can easily damage your pearls
