Another Behind-the-Scenes, Pearl-Photog Day!

Prepping for the Mother’s Day photo shoot

Second only to Christmas, the biggest pearl-giving holiday of the year is Mother’s Day! Every year we try to do something a little bit different, emphasizing the beauty of pearls, but showing moms just how important they are to all of us.

This year, team member Elia decided to invite her mother and her mother’s mother to the office for a Mother’s Day pearl shoot!

 

 

Three generations of beautiful ladies decked out in beautiful pearls make for an amazing photo shoot! Look for the final chosen images on our site and on Facebook closer to the big day!

Pearl Paradise CEO on CNBC Treasure Detectives

Our CEO was a featured expert on the new CNBC series Treasure Detectives last night! In case you missed it, tune in to one of the daily reruns this week on CNBC.

Jeremy was asked by the investigators to examine the mother-of-pearl inlay on a Les Paul custom guitar to determine whether it matched the inlay in a photo of Les Paul holding the guitar. While the mother-of-pearl did indeed match, the episode certainly had a surprising and somewhat explosive ending!

 

Pearls Just Wanna Have Fun

Pearls necklaces worn down the back.Some days we just try to have a little fun here;) We were shooting some model shots featuring our favorite model Loree for editorial, and decided to do a few “fun” shots too!

Who says there is only one way to wear pearls?! We think this could actually work:)

Loree is wearing five strands of 8 mm, white freshwater pearls in different, staggered lengths.

Oh yeah, pearls just wanna have fun, and we love having fun with our pearls!

Five Strand Pearl Necklace

Who wore it best?

Ok, this picture is just too cool not to share! We were recently sent a photo of Selena Gomez wearing a pair of our pearl spike earrings from the Pearl Collective collection. The photo sure looked familiar. Our own Mia Mesa, Vice President of Operations modeled the same pair of earrings four months earlier, mimicking what she thought would be a classic Hollywood pose!

Not too far off!

Behind the Scenes – Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot

Valentine’s Day is soon approaching and we are busy preparing special products and offerings tied into the holiday. We have a few very special pieces we’ve never offered before, including our new Ombre line that mixes the natural dark hues of silver-blue akoya with exotic Tahitian pearls.

When preparing for holiday promotions we get to have a bit of fun! As an online company we deal in visually stimulating images and love, love, love our photo shoots! This week we spent a day shooting hundreds of new photos of two of our favorite models hoping for that one perfect shot that will be showcased on our homepage during the month of February.
