The Lights are On!

After nearly two full days of working without power, phones or Internet, we are happy to announce that power has been restored to our block!

We had to come up with some very innovative ways to deal with the power outage this week. The week prior to Mothers Day is one of the busiest of the year, so we couldn’t just sit back and wait for the lights to come back on. Some team members worked from home while Kinkos became one of our best friends. The conference room with floor-to-ceiling windows became pearl matching central and we used flashlights and lanterns in the vault!

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!
