We purchase our pearls from a truly wonderful resource. A family business in existence since 1955, they regularly travel the world seeking the finest pearls and precious gemstones available. The hand knotted pearls you see here are a recent acquisition from their latest trip to the Orient. I personally selected these gorgeous pearls from their showroom. I have chosen them for their excellent luster and colorful overtones or for their unusual and interesting shapes.
I have used timeless and traditional techniques to individually hand knot each pearl with the finest silk thread available for beauty as well as security. This high quality silk provides great strength yet allows the pearls a lovely, soft drape. Hand knotting also prevents loss of an entire strand should a break occur.
Pearls complement all styles of clothing and caring for them is easy: To protect your pearls, make them the last thing you put on after dressing and applying lotions and fragrance and the first thing you take off before removing any clothing. Wipe with a soft cloth after wearing and store separate from other jewelry. Industry experts recommend re-stringing hand knotted pearls at least every two years if you wear them very frequently.
