    Default Anyone with familiarity with the brand Assael?

    Hello,

    I live in the midwest and there are no pearl boutiques within a state or two to me. However, Neiman Marcus carries the pearl line Assael. I can find a few articles, but no member discussions....is anyone familiar with the brand and it's reputation?

    Thank you,
    Maya

    Just from looking the Assael website I'd say they look yummy!

    I've seen their advertisements in high-end luxury magazines, like Town & Country. Very expensive. It's my impression that they focus on the design of the entire piece, using gold, etc., and not so much simple pearl strands.

    Assael is one of the very premium pearl distributors. This is the company that first introduced and promoted Tahitian pearls. Now they are the sole US distributor of J. Hunter's Fiji pearls. Very high quality and design.

    I suspect some special lighting was used. Shall we send a request that they photograph the pearls against a white paper towel?
