I contacted Perlas del Mar de CortÚs to obtain a couple of pearl jewelry as I have fallen in love with them since I found out of their existence (and thanks to John Steinbeck). I wanted to get something special for my dad to gift him on my wedding day, Douglas' team delivered. We made him a textured sterling silver tie clip with a three quarter baroque blue pearl. It just arrived yesterday at my sister's house and will see it in person in two days. I have to say, I'm very grateful to the team and Tania, who made this come to life.
