Late last year Jeremy Shepherd of Pearl Paradise held a drawing to send a lucky person to Bali, Indonesia to visit a pearl farm. The winner had to be a member of Pearl-Guide and to have completed the Pearls as One on-line course. Atlas Pearls and Perfumes sponsored the winner for five days in Bali.

I was the lucky winner of the drawing. I am Pearl-Guide member Red. I decided to take along my husband Dan as my travelling companion. We recently completed our trip to Bali and the visit to...

Our dear forum leader Caitlin Williams passed away last week. She loved Pearl-Guide, our members, and especially enjoyed attending the annual Pearl Guide Ruckus - a kind of sleepover party for pearl lovers.

Many of our members collect pearls, but only a few collect natural pearls. Member Metzler is one whose flawless taste and intellectual curiosity turns super-rare natural pearls into exquisite jewels.

Enjoy!

My Kind of Gift - Vintage Mikimoto

I was reading an article about people not wanting to inherit their parent's or grandparent's furnishings and keepsakes. There is a growing distaste for "brown furniture", the kind of beautifully ornate dining sets I wanted to inherit when I was a little girl. I have to admit that I prefer the clean lined furniture I have now, but still, it makes one stop and think about how helpful it would be to clean out the clutter now so that others won't have a hard time of things when your time is up...

Conch pearls are just the thing for this luxurious golden butterfly presented by Tara Pearls and Rawat Gems. The wings sparkle with flush set gems and embedded conch pearls.
