  • Nancy Newberg Oxidized Black Silver with Pearls

    Nancy Newberg Oxidized Black Silver with Pearls

    What a little black dress needs is frisky black jewelry with pearls and Nancy Newberg Jewelry has just the thing -- non traditional blackened silver pearl earrings and bracelets.

    These oxidized silver hoops with diamonds and pearls stopped me in my tracks at the Couture Show.



    Then, I was bowled over by this bracelet.



    I went to the website and fell in love with these fabulous and versatile earrings.

  • A Beating Heart of Green

    A Beating Heart of Green

    This pendant has been on my mind. To me, it resembles a heart that has burst open to reveal a river of emerald crystals. Part of the joy of baroque pearls is that they are like clouds -- different people see different things in them.

    Hisano Shepherd of little h sees things that I wouldn't have conceived -- until I see them and realize that each pearly interpretation is exactly right.

    What do you see?

  • Pearl Shrinkage Syndrome

    Pearl Shrinkage Syndrome

    There is an expression that has been repeated many times on Pearl Guide over the years: "Pearl Shrinkage Syndrome". Basically, you get used to larger pearls and over time they seem smaller. This is exacerbated by the continual increase in the size of pearls on the market and by the fact that as some of us age, we get larger and the pearls stay the same. Consider this photo from 2010, taken at the offices of PearlParadise.com. I remember resisting trying on this strand of South Sea pearls beca...

  • Falling in Love

    Falling in Love

    Can I say that I heard music when I first spied this little h pearl? Yes!
    "When I fall in love, it will be forever..." I'm hearing Nat King Cole singing in my head.

    The little h display at the Las Vegas JCK Show was better than ever. Just when you think Hisano Shepherd has done it all, she surprises and delights you all over again. This variation made music for me because of the effervescent variation in the sizes of the pearls lining the souffle' pearl, which to me looks...

  • A&Z Pearls Goes Fishing

    A&Z Pearls Goes Fishing

    Baroque pearls inspire Avi Raz of A&Z Pearls to create whimsical jewels. This pearl is a wonderful example of iridescence and orient. In fact, it is hard to envision it being anything but a fish once you have seen it!

  • Opals and Pearls - Everything Old is New Again!

    Opals and Pearls - Everything Old is New Again!

    This remarkable opal ring comes from Hammerman Brothers of New York City. The pearl halo is reminiscent of the antique style of adorning jewels with pearls. I hope this is the beginning of a trend!




    Seen at the Last Vegas Couture Show, June 2016.

  • 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, ...
