Meet Jeremy & Hisano

We are uniquely different from other pearl sellers due to the expertise of Jeremy and Hisano Shepherd, who hand-select every pearl we sell. Jeremy wrote the Cultured Pearl Association of America’s Pearl Specialist Certification Course, Pearls As One, which has been translated into 10 languages and taken by more than 90,000 students worldwide. It is considered the gold-standard educational program studied to become a certified pearl expert. He is the vice president of the Cultured Pearl Association of America and represents the United States pearl industry on the CIBJO World Pearl Commission. Hisano is an award-winning pearl jewelry designer, who has traveled the world over in search of the finest pearls. Together, they have been sourcing the finest pearls in the world for over 25 years.

Quality you can trust

The most important thing to understand when comparing pearl grades: Every company in the world that sells pearls uses a grading system
that they themselves arbitrarily created, which is subjectively applied. There is no standardized system.

Our stringent approach to pearl grading takes all seven value factors into account: Shape, size, color, luster, surface, nacre and matching. Before any pearl reaches your hands, it has gone through multiple grading steps and rigorous quality control.
