    Autore - Just in Time for the Vernal Equinox!

    The Vernal Equinox and Spring have arrived, and what better way to celebrate than with an Autore bloom bracelet?



    And what could be better, but more floral fantasy and more pearls?




    After the hot house flowers, it's time to cool down with the delicate shades of Spring.



    These beauties were seen at the Couture Show in Las Vegas.

    Be the Royal or the Jester

    Jewelmer designs are a delight, but their pearls steal the show!

    First, here are two pendants that are elegantly playful. It would be hard to choose between wearing the crown or the jester's hat.


    Spring is here and Jewelmer's flower rings are a perfect way to celebrate the sunshine.

  • The Softer Side of Natural Pearls

    The Softer Side of Natural Pearls

    On the Western coast of Canada, there is a lively natural treasure - Lagoon Island. That is where Canadian researcher and pearl farmer, Dave LeBlanc, operates Lagoon Island Pearls.

    The California Mussel loves the environment, which can at times be very harsh, but is host to a vast eco-system. These mussels produce delicate beauties - natural pearls in shades from pale ivory to violet black. Dave also experiments with cultured pearls.

    California mussel pearls can ...

    Faceted Pearls

    Gabriel Mattice, gemologist extraordinaire at Pala International, demonstrates the fascinating properties of faceted pearls. "Even though the facets on this pearl appear convex; they are actually completely flat..... it's an art."

  • If Your Valentine is Rare...

    If Your Valentine is Rare...

    A rare natural pearl might not be the first thing you think of to celebrate a holiday, but you can bet no one else will have the same bragging rights as the person who gives a Tridacna gigas necklace.



    Pearls from the Tridacna gigas are typically not lustrous, but have a subtle glow. Commonly known as the Giant Clam, the shells can grow large enough to be used as baptismal fonts.

    Earrings made from Spondylus princeps pearls could be very complimenta...

  • The Subtle Beauty of Natural Pearls

    The Subtle Beauty of Natural Pearls

    Even the most modest of natural pearls can command attention when they are combined into a luminous torsade. Upon close examination, each pearl is worthy of attention.

    Amazing Jewellery Theater

    Jewellery Theater participated in the Couture Show for the first time in 2015. I was astonished and utterly seduced by their amazing jewelry. Founded in Moscow in 1998, they immediately gained recognition by winning the Tahitian Pearl Trophy at Baselworld-2002. Today they have boutiques in London, Marbella, Dubai, Baden-Baden and Cyprus. There is no question that Jewellery Theater defines luxury, from the simple to the simply-encrusted. You will need to visit their website to see what I mean...

  • Cibjo webinar/discussion on origins of gemstones
    by CortezPearls
    Although it is not about PEARLS (but it may include them), some of you may find it interesting, so here is the information:

    The origin of a gemstone, namely the geographic location at which it was extracted from the earth, has for years posed substantial scientific challenges to the gemmologists who are called on to make definitive judgements.

    The current focus on supply chain integrity and traceability means that the concept of origin has expanded and is more relevant

  • 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...

    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...
