  • To Pink or Not to Pink?

    To Pink or Not to Pink?

    Decisions, decisions... Which is better, natural white color akoya pearls or "pinked" akoya pearls? Pinking can be dramatic, but more often than not, the tint is a gentle pink that looks white against the skin.

    This photograph is an excellent example of the difference between the two. Something to think about if you are planning to invest in a good strand of akoya pearls.

    Paula Crevoshay is on Fire!

    The Paula Crevoshay booth was a firestorm of activity at this year's Couture Show in Las Vegas, so I snapped a quickie showcase photo on the sly. Every time I passed by, they were swamped by a nonstop love-fest of adoring buyers.

    Speaking of fire, here is my rough candid shot of her wondrous flaming pearl earrings.



    But, not to let you down, here is the official glamour shot. Sweet, right?

    Enjoy a feast of Paula Crevoshay jewels ...

  • 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...

  • 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...
