I believe Melanie Georgacopoulos is the head designer there. Her Instagram is very "pearly" and worth checking out. I really like the faceted Golden South Sea Pearls by Stephen Webster. I am not much of a faceted pearl fan, but I really liked the shape of these pearls. Also there is an amazing Diamond, Aquamarine and Pearl Polar Bear piece (We know I love animal themed jewelry!) Once there check out the picture of the spiral pearl earrings
Luster can be outstanding on stick pearls, and they usually aren't expensive at all.
BPDDC, thank you, Valenza earrings are intriguing! Gem clusters above the pearls~yummy & inspiring! I've some huge white SS keshi for earrings and pendant, but haven't been excited to make up because my hair is so white, the earrings will be more interesting if I can add some color.
Those pieces being inspiration and because they are earrings, I am thinking Titanite (Sphene) Briollettes (for the amazing sparkle ) though they are softer gem or Chrysoberyl (for color) might be a good alternative to yellow diamonds strictly from an expense standpoint.
Ive seen versions with multi color sapphires and shaded sapphires graduating from light to dark in blues, pinks or yellows. But being sapphires still costly.
