Product and Market Development
John Dwight (Jr.) was born in Cleveland Ohio, and later moved to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where he attended high school and college. Starting at the early age four, he spent his summers taking art lessons at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and always found himself particularly drawn to the ancient jewelry exhibits. By the age of 18, he was making his own jewelry and selling in art galleries and high-end boutiques across the country. In his early 20’s, he collaborated with renowned bridal designer Tomasina, and a line was created which was adorned with John’s handmade jewelry and sold nationally at Saks Fifth Avenue. John moved to Los Angeles over ten years ago and has worked with jewelry companies specializing in high-end diamonds and cultured pearls.
John is also an accomplished DJ, and has performed in such prestigious venues as the world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, The House of Blues in Los Angeles, and the Allenby 58 in Tel Aviv Israel.
At Pearl Paradise, John manages the in-house production of new jewelry designs to add to the site, as well as developing and managing new marketplaces for Pearl Paradise’s pearl jewelry to be sold.
