  • A Baroque Pearl That Will Make You Smile - Cynthia Renee

    A jewelry collector client brought an unusual 26mm baroque pearl to designer Cynthia Renee. That pearl inspired a very cheerful creation - "The Smile".

    Rose gold surrounds the pearl, flowing organically, and enhancing the lovely iridescence.

    Cynthia Renee is one of my favorite designers and she has a way with pearls, as seen in this stalker-shot from the AGTA GemFair in Las Vegas. Cynthia is wearing her "Calligraphy" earrings with pink tourmaline, spessartine* garnet and removable 13.5mm pinkish-purple Kasumiga pearls.

    A trained geologist and gemologist, Cynthia has been in gem mines the world over and is frequently consulted as an expert on the finest gemstones. Her travel generates inspiration for new jewelry designs, and we can see from The Smile, her sparkling wit also has a hand in the creative process.


    *Spessartine Garnet now replaces the use of Spessartite Garnet for better alignment with mineralogical standards.

      Hello dear Pearl-Guide.com Forum Members: With spring comes renewed energies and pulses, the recent system upgrade also allows me to start adding up content that we believe is necessary to keep the forum growing and renewed, making it the #1 Source for Pearl information on the World-Wide-Web for years to come. I had this idea of a column years ago, when I still published "The Sea of Cortez Peal Blog", which went "black" after a massive Russian hacker attack (the importance of updating your system...

      Carolyn Ehret operates Ehret Design Gallery on eBay, a favorite of our members, and myself! If you find yourself having to wait for a car repair or a delayed appointment, I can practically guarantee that the time will fly by while you look at the fun items on her site.

    • Pearls Make Me Feel Beautiful
      by GemGeek
      Looking through photos from this summer, I noticed that all the photos where I am wearing pearls are the ones where I am joyous and glowing. Could there be a transfer of radiance from the pearls to the wearer? Can pearls fill the soul with visible happiness? I'm not sure, but I love my self-purchase of pearls from little h beyond measure.

      Happy Blaire, followed by closeups of the pearls...
