I am very excited to be back with VIP Lot 51019 which is sexy and exotic.
Most of these also came from Hisano and Jeremy, our fearless pearl-sourcing team's last trip where they had a blast 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.

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.
The next release will happen:
Wednesday, May 15th at 4 PM EST - 1 PM PST
So without further ado, here comes your eye candy!
This is another one of the super-Tahitian strands we slowly began introducing last year. If you're a Pearl-Guide.com member or follow us on Instagram, you might have seen some of the photos.
The strand is all about rare and exotic colors! You can see the perfect natural-color chocolate, the intense cherries and aubergines that more than straddle the fence from overtone to body color.
We have only made six of these strands since introducing them more than a year ago, and we only intend to release them to VIPs. They are THAT special.
Yes, these are freshwater pearls. Three years ago, there isn't a jeweler in the United States who would have believed it. This is NOT a color we're supposed to see naturally, but here it is - and we found two that matched!
We are offering these as stud, but if you're lucky one to snag this pair and would like us to create something else, please let us know AFTER you've received confirmation that they're yours!

A few years ago, Sheri, a friend of Jeremy and Hisano's came on a buying trip to Hong Kong and spent some time matched loose gem-grade metallic white pearls. She matched just a few strands and they went to our VIP friends from Pearl-Guide. They were aptly named, Sheri's Screamers because ... well, how else do you describe luster like this?
Since Sheri made those fantabulous strands, we've been trying to make 2-3 each time we go to Asia. These strands don't appear on the main website (and never will) because they simply aren't repeatable and they're too special - they HAVE to go to people who can truly appreciate them for what they are - they are the best graduated strands of freshwater pearls in the world - period.

These are NOT Tahitian drops! They are natural-color freshwater pearls. If you know pearls well, you may have seen an occasional rare pearl like one of these, but a pair? Not a chance. One in a million would be an understatement.
Ripple pearls were a phenomenon that came about when freshwater pearl farmers in China decided to start growing pearls by adapted a new method from a boutique pearl farming operation in Japan. The resulting pearls have one of the most uniquely beautiful forms we've ever seen - truly baroque pearls with natural growth lines and full-circumference surface characteristics never before achieved.
Hisano selected two strands that she felt exemplified the beauty of this type of pearl. They have subtle colors and intense orient, which you can see in the reflection of deep colors. She combined the strands to make one super versatile rope.
Green gold, green gold, green gold alert!
So one of two things happened here. Perhaps a gold-lipped South Sea pearl oyster from the Philippines swam over to French Polynesia to elope with a black-lip Tahitian pearl oyster. They had twins!
Or ........ this is another pair of uber-rare, naturally-colored freshwater pearls that match.
