My Precious Pearl

We simply can’t wait for the launch of our metallic pearl collection. Why, you ask? A customer from Belgium recently paid a visit to our office. She wanted to learn more about pearls and see the metallic beauties for herself. No wonder, as such pearls are rarely available even in Asia where they are born, so for a European customer their sight was even more exciting. 

Happy Customer with Her New Pearls!

She immediately fell in love with the silver-pink hues of one of our oval-shaped pendants. She asked us to find a matching pair of earrings. Usually, this is a very simple request, however in case of these rare beauties, finding two more pearls of the same delicate pink hue was very challenging! Hundreds (did I say hundreds? Thousands!) of pearls and a few days later we finally found a perfect match. These were the only two pearls in the entire collection that exhibited the same beautiful hue. 

Here is the result:

…One more happy customer :-)

Donna Karan Embraces Pearls This Fall

A very unusual relationship has recently been formed. Donna Karan, a New York based designer, abandoned her beloved African beads in favor of… pearls! For many years she has strongly favored the organic and sculptural jewels of Robert Lee Morris, but this year she departed from the tribal trend in favor of the ladylike look of pearls.

Karan’s fall collection, “Pearls of Wisdom”, is very feminine and wearable. Although the collection did not wow the fashion critics, it still had many great outfits and the taupe and gray ensembles fit well into the feminine trend of the season. Especially her pearl necklaces, single or multiple strands but always in the choker or princess length, adding great finishing touches to these looks. The pearls are large, ranging from purple to golden and silver, and can be worn with any type of neckline.

Metallic Baci d'Oro from Love My Pearls is a response to the trend

We are happy to see designers embracing pearls this season. It is time we put aside those heavy slave-like chain necklaces and prisoner cuffs and returned to the understated and feminine side of our fashion accessories!

Pick of the Week: Teal-colored Pearl Studs

Teal, the color of feminine sophistication, is one of the most important colors of the season. We decided to glam up a pair of pearl studs and offer their teal-colored version as an alternative to white or black pearl earrings. You can style them in many ways, with simple tees or more classy dresses. Teal matches well with black, gray, purple, peach, brown, beige, and mustard colors.

Here is our proposition, incorporating a black mini skirt and a highly fashionable thick sweater with a wolf motif:

Craving for Metallic Pearl Pendants

The newest trend in freshwater pearl jewelry for 2012 is all about metallic pearls. These pearls have strong color-shifting (iridescent) properties, so they look different depending on the light they are exposed to. A single pearl may exhibit a delicate peach tint in the daylight, sunset-borne hues in brightly-lit offices, and intensely golden shades in dimmed lights of a romantic dinner for two.

Metallic Pearl Pendants from Giveaway

Metallic pearls have an exceptional natural luster that makes mirrors look like dull sheets of steel! Their colors are unusual too. Intense but all natural, they range from silver cream to copper peach, gold lavender, or deep coppery amethyst-like hues.

These beautiful pearls don’t go unnoticed and are difficult to find. Only one in thousands of pearls from the top of the crop will be lustrous and intensely-colored enough to be named metallic. It has been more than a year now that we have been searching and cherry-picking each individual pearl to build a collection of pendants, earrings, and necklaces for you. Love My Pearls’ exclusive line of metallic freshwater pearl jewels is currently under development, but we couldn’t wait any longer to share some of these beauties with you!

We picked three gorgeous pendants from our growing selection of metallic pearls: copper lavender, silver cream, and golden peach colored to suit all tastes and styles. They are all drop-shaped and 10mm wide at their shortest, and are classified as gem-quality AAA+ natural color pearls. We adorned them with the simplest sterling silver pendant settings to emphasize rather than overpower their beauty. Just to give you an idea of their size, here I am wearing all three beauties together :-)

One of these bold metallic pearls can be yours!

One of these three stunning pendants can be yours, free of charge. Make a purchase at Love My Pearls until November 30 and get a chance to win one of these metallic pearl pendants worth US$ 150 each, with an accompanying 18 inch (46cm) Italian-made silver chain worth US$ 25.

Details of the promotion can be found here.

Hong Kong Jewelry Fair Treasures

The September Jewelry Fair in Hong Kong concluded on Sunday, September 25. I spent two beautiful days cruising between rows upon rows of jewelry exhibitors. Everybody was there. Antique jewelry sellers charmed us with early 20th century pieces from Cartier and natural pearl strands; precious stone wholesalers exhibited their largest, most beautiful deep green emeralds and sky-blue sapphires; and talented jewelry designers from all over the world displayed their newest over-the-top collections.

And, oh yes, the pearl vendors! Many of them came with their biggest, most lustrous and breath-taking pearls from all over the world.

Pearl Candy, Eye Candy

What is the best way of warming up in the coming fall? Wrap yourself in colorful pearls from this season’s collections!

Just look inside your wardrobe. We so got used to the idea that we only wear black and gray in the cool season that we dread coming months and clothes that come with it. So depressing! 
There is hope for color-lovers though. Finally, fashion gurus have acknowledged that bright colors are allowed and better yet, most wanted for cooler months, so the runways have been flooded with optimistic polka dots, electric indigos, bold purples, and deep teals.

Our pearl studs to match this season's color trends

Chanel + Pearls = ♡♡♡

Chanel’s love affair with pearls has been ongoing for decades. Coco Chanel was one of the biggest lovers of Nature’s gift to women. She used to say that a woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.
