We are super excited to introduce our newest member of the Pearl Paradise Team, Peter Lopez!
Peter has brought more than 30 years of pearl appreciation to our team and he has already hit the ground running. As of last week, Peter is now managing our VIP, special release pages!
In case you missed it, here was last week's release!
I am so excited to be here! I have had a life long love affair with Pearls since I was 5 years old (my dad was in the jewelry business) and I am living my dream as part of the Pearl Paradise team.
Hisano and Jeremy, our fearless pearl-sourcing team, spent two days just having fun and hand selecting an exceptional collection for this exclusive VIP program at the Hong Kong International Gem and Pearl Show.
To them, fun means finding special pearls that excite them! If you've been following us on Instagram, you've probably seen some of the crazy special, special, SPECIAL pearls they brought back.
Peter, Your Pearl Paradise Concierge
The special pieces we curate on this hidden page are not listed as regular products on the website. When you click on the products, you'll see something that reads "LOCKED CONTENT." This is just to keep the photos hidden from the public, you can still purchase them.
Also (and this is really, really important), the pearls are NOT held in your cart for 10 minutes even though there is a countdown timer on the checkout page. Some of these will double sell, and we will send the pearls to the first person who completed the checkout process.
So without further ado, here comes your eye candy!
The rarest, most exciting freshwater pearls we see these days are those with a full rainbow color palette within a single pearl. The colors are so difficult to capture and even more difficult to describe, in part because they're always changing - like the rainbow iridescence on a soap bubble. These (BIG) pearls scream iridescence.
A1 - 16 x 25 mm | Souffle Freshwater Pearl Strand (Sorry, Sold Out!)
Can you say BIG? This flamboyant freshwater necklace definitely makes a statement and is full of brilliance and character. These are rare, farmed souffle pearls. They're grown hollow, so they're super light and BIG - this strand measures up to 25 mm! These are some of the rarest freshwater pearls in the world!
F11 - 11 x 16 mm | Exotic Freshwater Pearl Drops (Sorry, Sold Out)
Your eyes are not deceiving you. These pearls really are this color! The greens, the pinks, the gold ... these are not colors that are SUPPOSED to be found naturally. But the colors are 100% natural - NO processing was done to this one in a billion pair of pearls!
The pearls are loose! You can grab a setting too if you like, or just take these home and stare at them until they tell you what they are going to become.
E6 - 11.2 mm | Exotic Freshwater Round Pair (Sorry, Sold Out!)
YIf you're familiar with freshwater pearls, you know lavender is a natural color. Did you know that a deep, intense purple is also (albeit extraordinarily rarely) found in nature. This pair of matched, large pearls in unlike any other you've ever seen. These pearls are THAT special!
C1 - 19 x 24 mm | 7.5 Grams (Sorry, Sold Out!)
I see greens, pinks, golds with hints of blue and purple. Different angles show completely different colors.
C2 - 30 x 19.4 mm | 7.85 Grams (Sorry, Sold Out!)
The intensity of the purple mixed with colorful iridescent lines streaming off the top of this 30 mm pearl is as special as they get.
C3 - 21.2 x 19.5 mm | 6.15 Grams (Sorry, Sold Out!)
This one is so difficult to describe. Do you see that green-purple-pink-blue-rose oil slick orient? Depending on how you turn or hold the pearl, it changes colors and disappears! That's thin-film interference - an optical phenomenon almost exclusive to pearls.
C4 - 26 x 17.6 mm | 6.9 Grams (Sorry, Sold Out!)
This pearl looks like it's got a crazy purple intensity, but the craziest thing about this pearl is the green. The purple turns to total green at certain angles (that are so darn difficult to capture with an iPhone). I describe this pearl as molten iridescence.
C5 - 29.3 x 19.2 mm | 8.6 Grams (Sorry, Sold Out!)
True, hot pink is a color we would typically tell people is one we never, or almost never see naturally. The color (almost) does not exist in freshwater pearls. This pearl has it - an intense pink iridescence that makes is truly one in a million (or more).
