Hisano Introduces Pearl Geodes and Finestrino by little h

Hisano has been working on her new lines of pearl geodes and finestrino for nearly a year now and gave the first public reveal at this year’s Pearl-Guide Ruckus, which we were once again honored to host in Palos Verdes Estates, California.

In the short video below, Hisano talks about the inspiration behind her pieces and the process of creating her wearable works of art.

Connoisseur Sale 2014

Our annual Pearl Connoisseur Sale is now live! We will be adding pieces to this sale as we create them every few days throughout the month.

Our apologies in advance! We know some items will go very quickly and some will double sell. This happens every time we do a promotion and we sincerely apologize. Many of our items are one of a kind. When two customers have a product in their cart at the same time and checkout at the same time, a double-sale happens. If this happens to you, we promise to do everything we can to make it right.

We hope you enjoy this curated collection.

The Annual Pearl Connoisseur Sale begins tomorrow!

A single magical Tahitian pearlIt’s time once again for our second annual Pearl Connoisseur Sale! Around 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, we’ll post a link on this blog to a hidden page on PearlParadise.com. We won’t be sending out an immediate email to make sure that our friends who read this are the first to see what we’ve created! Here is a link to last year’s blog about the sale.

Expect to see fancy loose Tahitian pearls that we selected as being the most special from the 5,600 loose pearl lot of peacock drops, as well as a few harvest strands and more.

Also this year we are introducing for the first time, Hisano Shepherd’s little h line of Pearl Geodes and Finestrino! Hisano has been hard at work slicing some of our finest souffle and Tahitian pearls, polishing and boring out the centers and setting white diamonds, black diamonds, sapphires, rubies and even seed pearls into them. We will publish a short video of her Pearl-Guide Ruckus Presentation about this new line later this afternoon!

Effecting Change, with Josh Humbert of Kamoka Pearls

Continuing with the video series from the 2014 Pearl-Guide Ruckus in Palos Verdes, here is Josh Humbert of Kamoka Pearls giving a presentation about his life on a Tahitian pearl farm and about effecting change with sustainable pearl farming.

A few special pieces will be debuting next week!

As those of you on our email list know, we’ve been adding new pieces to our mid-year clearance page every Tuesday this month (and most things are snapped up by mid-afternoon). Well next week we’ve got a few new things that we’re extra excited about – round, metallic-white freshwater strands!

If a strand of those mirrored white orbs have been on your list, keep an eye on the sale page on Tuesday morning! The strands are all long (think 35 inches and longer) and truly special!
