We recently received a new batch of pearls from overseas, and stop the presses: these are stunners! Our newest pearl collection is absolutely amazing – they are Metallic Freshwater pearls from China.
These colorful pearls have kept me at my desk for hours, absolutely entranced. I knew one thing, and one thing only: it’s photo-shoot time. I gathered up some of my prettiest specimens and headed over to the studio – I hope you like the new pictures!
These pearls are incredibly rare, representing about .01% of each yearly Freshwater pearl harvest … that works out to be about 1 in 1,000 pearls.
These perfectly round Metallic Freshwater pearls will be used for earrings. I am IN LOVE with the blue pearls on the right!
The luster is very intense and highly reflective. Notice you can see EVERYTHING reflected in their surfaces with incredibly mirror-like detail.

Here I am playing around with the loose drop-shapes – can you guess which ones are my favorites??
Some of my new Metallic pendants…

Some earrings clustered together. I can’t get over the intensity of the luster!
Some of these pearls will be mounted as pendants and earrings, others will be used as whole strands. We haven’t fleshed out the entire collection yet, but I’m working on it slowly and surely.
The collection launches this Thursday, September 25! It is a limited edition collection for now, but will be 25% off throughout October and the prices are just unreal – it makes me want to keep them all for myself haha. ;)
I intend for this collection to be around for a long time, so I’ll be adding new designs throughout the year. Let me know if you have any special designs that you’d like to see!
