Blue March: Custom Natural Blue Japanese Akoya Hanadama Pearl Double-Strand Necklace from Pure
Earlier on in the March Blue Akoya Sale I received a VERY special request that turned out so beautifully that I just had to share with everyone! A long-time client that’s been with Pure for many years contacted me about creating a true one of a kind: a Double-Strand Natural-Color Blue Japanese Hanadama Akoya Pearl Necklace.

Knowing how RARE fully-matched, high-quality certified Blue Hanadamas are, this was going to be a TALL order, but I was absolutely enticed by the idea, so I began making some calls … what I found set my little Color Junkie’s heart racing!

The Truth About Wish Pearls

Posted by Ashley on 2/3/2017 to News
The Truth About Wish Pearls
The pearls in "Wish Pearl" oysters have already been harvested (NO exceptions), processed at a pearl processing factory overseas, treated (or not - I have seen some natural color Lavender Freshwater pearls pulled out of an Akoya oyster "Wish Pearl" tin my friend purchased at a Sea World visit, lol!! You never know what you're going to get!), and then re-inserted back into a saltwater akoya oyster and placed in the "Wish Pearl" tin for buyers to open. The oysters are submerged in a mix of rubbing alcohol and formaldehyde to keep the oyster from decomposing while it waits for a buyer.

A $100M Clam Pearl? Getouttahere!

A $100M Clam Pearl? Getouttahere!
Impossible to miss on my Facebook feeds for the past two days is news of the newest, largest Giant Clam pearl now on display in the Philippines. Lofty numbers of value are being tossed about – over $3,500,000 from IFL Science is the one that got me giggling this morning. “Ok, sure – whatever you want, buddy,” was the thought that ran through my mind. Then I saw someone – ok MORE than someone - float $100,000,000 (srsly) and realized we gotta reign this in before it gets out of control.

The Sea of Cortez Unicorn Strand

The Sea of Cortez Unicorn Strand

It finally arrived, but definitely … hmm … um …

Not the way I expected!

It came without clasp.

It came without string!

It came without flair, trumpets or even an angel singing!

Ok, ok, enough with the Seuss.

It actually came totally UNDRILLED.

And Loose.

In numbered bags.

But when you think about it, this way of keeping the pearls makes total sense – you don’t just drill pearls of this rarity and color! That’s for pearls you know you have MORE of.

These – these are one in a million.

In Honor of St. Patrick's Day: Emeralds and Pearls

Hi All! 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! For those of you who don't know me, my last name McNamara is of Irish descent. The McNamara clan is very diverse, and hails from County Clare in Ireland. Family lore says that we've got 7 (!!) standing castles in Ireland, and it's a big deal to return to the Emerald Isle and do "the tour" at some point ... it's on my bucket list for now haha. In the meantime though, I content myself with lovely photos and day dreaming of The Tour. 

Which brings us to today. In honor of St. Patty's I thought I'd put together a collection of some of the prettiest, most unique and valuable Emerald and Pearl jewelry pictures I could possibly find. Feast your eyes, drink them in (tee hee), and enjoy the wearin' o' the Green!

How Much Are Conch Pearls Worth?

How Much Are Conch Pearls Worth?
Answer: It varies! What else is new, eh? I swear, this is becoming my standard answer for most of the questions I get lately lol. 

Wild conch (pronounced 'konk' btw) pearls - those gorgeous, delicately-colored pink pearls from the Strombas gigas, or Queen Conch snail, are making a comeback! These wild pearls were particularly popular during the Victorian era, but lately these beauties have been the star attraction in spectacular designs from jewelers around the world over the last few years.

Customer Question: Can you describe the difference in luster between your AA+ and AAA Quality Akoya pearls?

Posted by Ashley on 11/2/2015 to News
Customer Question: Can you describe the difference in luster between your AA+ and AAA Quality Akoya pearls?
Answer:

Certainly! Akoya pearls are renowned for what we call ball-bearing luster, or luster that is mirror-sharp, meaning that reflections appearing in their surfaces will be highly detailed and reflected light sources (those patches of white light seen on the surfaces) will be very sharp and crisp, with little to no blurring around the edges ...

In this classically-inspired fashion shoot for Italian Vogue, she dazzles in diamonds and a stunning diamond and White South Sea pearl collar.
