Pearls - gotta love 'em. Whether you've always wanted that classic, "I've arrived" pearl necklace - hand knotted (you can do it yourself - it's EASY) or you want to make something edgy and avant-garde, pearls are the classic of the classics - a something-old that can readily adapt to a new twist!
So while we have a boatload of new, freshwater pearls, that probably needs absolutely zero in the way of explanation - allow me to point out some highlights anyway!
Our particular emphasis for this season's selection (we usually only get to purchase pearls once or twice a year) is on natural-looking colours.
I should point out here that due to modern processing techniques, virtually all the pearls that you see are probably manipulated to enhance their colour, either by dyeing or bleaching, mostly to get more uniform colour. When we do find uncoloured pearls - we note that in the description - but be aware - they will be premium price!
In fact - we do have some natural pearls, undyed and unbleached, classic near round pearls. And they are $50.40 per strand. Don't say you weren't warned! ;-) They will, however, make a pearl necklace of heirloom quality - your great-granddaughter will be thrilled to be married in these pearls and will wonder at the indulgence of you owning them!
However, on the more accessible side of the price scale - we have a bunch of strands that are much easier on the wallet!
And just because we didn't select a lot of wild colours - doesn't mean we didn't find innovative items!
These large disk pearls are definitely different!
And these sausage-shaped stick pearls with the hole drilled lengthwise are also definitely different.
And these "polished pearl nuggets" - tumbled mother of pearl - are also very fun and very funky. In Cinnamon, Sage and Smoke. These have the random and chaotic look that is so appealing and is such a source of creativity!
So - if you love pearls - this update is for you! And if you don't think of yourself as the girl-with-the-pearl - maybe there is something here for you anyway!
