Over the past few buying trips to Asia, Hisano and I have begun spending more and more time finding special pearls that break from the norm; pearls we appreciate for their rarity and beauty - often individual pearls that are best suited to be designed around. We've started amassing quite a collection of giant baroque pearls, rare-colored metallic pearls, Giant Edison button pearls, and many pieces that just caught our eye. But given that so many of these pieces are one of a kind, they never really have the chance to make it onto the website as regular items.
August is going to change this, but with a twist! Hisano, John and Allison have been busy this month, creating a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces as well as special, repeatable pieces with very limited selection. This collection is being created with true pearl connoisseurs in mind, so we are going to do what we can to make sure the connoisseurs see the collection first!
On Thursday, we will be posting a link to the special page from this blog only - that is when the connoisseur collection will be made available. The page will not be linked to the main website like most monthly specials until next week, and we will not be sending out an email to our newsletter subscriber list until next week.
