Happy New (PEARL) Year!
We've added some amazing pieces this week you've got to see. It's something we haven't done in a long, long time - BIG, ROUND pearl strands. When we say BIG, we're talking about Tahitian strands as large as 16 mm and even 17 mm.
Take a look how a strand like this compares with more traditionally-sized pearls, such as this strand of 8-10 mm Tahitians.
We've also added some extra large and extra special white and gold South Sea strands!
The last time we offered strands such as these was all the way back in 2008. That's a full decade!
We hope you enjoy as much as we enjoyed putting them together!
We just received the following link to a video trailer from our friends at Atlas Pearl in Indonesia. The movie, 300 Hands: Sharing and Sustaining, shows the people and work behind the beautiful South Sea pearls produced by our friend Mr. Joseph Taylor and the folks at Atlas.
We can't wait for whole movie!

Back in late March we mentioned that we had added a new bunch of golden South Sea strands to inventory. These weren't your every day round classic strands, they were unique, circled and free formed baroque strands. We listed around 20 strands on the site staggered over a two week period and watched them disappear nearly as quickly. Gold has been popular this past month!
After realizing that our baroque golden strand page was down to only two pieces, we've decided to bring in more strands. Over the next week we will be adding them to the website. A quick sneak peak of a few is just below!
