little h ring wins the Orient Award

"Orient Award- Pearl Geode by Hisano Shepherd of Los Angeles, California
Compelling design esthetic; inspiring a new affinity for pearls

Hisano's innovative hollow pearl designs are lined with the tiniest of seed pearls or precious gems - in this case - pink sapphires. These pearl geodes break free of the long held notions of round and white. And this non-traditional ring has each lovely pearl half nestled between the fingers of the wearer.

Proud congratulations from everyone at Pearl Guide go to our member Hisano and little h for receiving the CPAA Orient Award!
