Hisano and Jeremy, our fearless pearl-sourcing team, spent two days just having fun. To them, fun means finding special pearls that excite them! If you're been following us on Instagram, you've probably seen some of the crazy special, special, SPECIAL pearls they brought back.
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.
C1 - 19 x 24 mm | 7.5 Grams
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
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
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
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
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).
