    Pearl-Guide.com invited forum member & sustainable pearl farmer Josh Humbert of Kamoka Pearls fame to a "Walk and Talk" Zoom event this past Saturday 10th, 2021.

    New Bi-Monthly Column: The Sustainability Corner

    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

    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

    Pearls Make Me Feel Beautiful

    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...

    Non-glam photos, but nothing shows color like a white paper towel!

  • Pink Pearl Fantasy - Karen Suen

    Pink Pearl Fantasy - Karen Suen

    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, ...

    Assael Tahitian and Jade Treasure

The people were just as magnificent as the pearls, allowing us to acquire many candid photos to share this year. Today we start with these intensely green Tahitian pearl and jade earrings. The perfect choice to commemorate an important milestone -- or just because they ar...

  • Big Natural Pearl Attached to the Shell

    Big Natural Pearl Attached to the Shell

    Marine researcher and pearl farmer Dave LeBlanc recently found a large natural pearl attached to the shell of a mussel.

    "Normally blister pearls present as a bump from a drilling predator or a ridge from a fracture, but this pearl spontaneously popped from its sac within the past year and became fixed to the shell. Although the sac burst because of the sheer size, the pearl didn't re-position itself by the looks of the growth fronts towards the outside of the shell. However, it...
