  • Pearl Scorpion - Emiko Pearls International

    Pearl Scorpion - Emiko Pearls International

    There are other designers that are noted for occasionally turning pearls into jeweled critters, but Emiko Pearls always has a virtual Noah's ark of glorious gem encrusted pearl animals and insects.

    Last February, at the AGTA GemFair in Tucson, Ron Greenidge was very generous in allowing several photographs to be taken to share with Pearl Guide as Pearls of the Week. This perfectly detailed enormous scorpion pin is the first to be featured.

    Shaded Pearl Bracelet - Utopia Jewels

    One look at their first display case at the Couture Show in Las Vegas, and I fell in love. This bracelet was my introduction to a brand that knows how to combine gemstones with pearls in a very big way. I invite you to visit their website and I am putting the link here, upfront, because they have a very entertaining introductory video that is not to be missed: http://www.utopia-jewels.com

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

    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,...

  • Bigger than a Walnut - Paspaley Baroque South Sea Pearl!

    Back in 2007, members of the GIA Alumni Pearl Tour happily invaded the private grading rooms of Paspaley, in Darwin, Australia, where we were shown the special pearls.

    This pearl was amazing, not only for it's size, but for the orient shimmering on the surface. I have long imagined how I would set it as a pendant with a very long chain so it could be touched and admired. In wilder fantasies, I imagined how magnificent it would look atop a scepter! You can see their Sout...

  • New Bi-Monthly Column: The Sustainability Corner
    by CortezPearls
    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...

  • Indonesian South Sea Keshi on a Lazy Sunday
    by GemGeek
    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. Of course, looking can be dangerous to your pocketbook. This is also a great place to find a few gems to add to a necklace or earrings--or just to source beautiful and unusual pearls. I had Carolyn add gold spacer beads and finding...

  • 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...

  • Pink Pearl Fantasy - Karen Suen
    by GemGeek
    Karen Suen's eye for color will steal your heart. You will need to visit the collection on her website to see the finest use of clam pearl, conch pearl, opals and diamonds in a ring that I have ever seen. Searching through the jewelry images was a review of some of the finest gemstones in the world, including an enormous padparadscha sapphire and dazzling jade. I found out about Karen Suen at the Couture Show Awards competition. Although the lighting made photo opportunities difficult this year, ...
