Within the last year we were deeply honored to be a part of the “A Pearl to Bridget” project, a grassroots project started by Malinda Humes and Alisen Dupré, to honor a courageous breast cancer advocate, Bridget Spence. Her story of fighting Metastatic Breast Cancer beginning at age 21, and her passing at the young age of 29 has inspired thousands of people around the world.
We have designed a pink “Faith” pearl and diamond pendant in honor of Bridget and 100% of the profits will be donated to the Susan G Komen 60 Mile 3 Day through a local team, “Bridget’s Brigade,” who will be walking in her memory next month in San Diego.
Those of you following our blog last month may have see the live broadcast we did with two of our friends, Cynde and Wendy, the day we launched the Pearl Connoisseur Sale. During the broadcast, Wendy interviewed one of our newest team members John, who showed off the new production studio where we are now making our own jewelry designs completely from scratch.
From this point forward, we will be introducing at least one new design per week and posting the new design to our Facebook page where it will be introduced and be on sale for the following week at a minimum of 20% off. This way our friends and customers can decide whether or not they like the new design, which will determine whether or not we keep it (of course)!
So if you would like to follow along, be sure to check out our Facebook page every Friday and let us know what you think!
Pearl Paradise’s “Empress” choker was recently featured in Martha Stewart Wedding magazine! According to the magazine, “Pearl Paradise’s pearl-and-diamond “Empress” choker upgrades big-day and everyday looks!
The choker was designed by Hisano and is composed of 10 full strands of true round, 4.5-5.0 mm white freshwater pearls. Complementing the pearls are four diamond and 14 karat gold spacers staggered throughout. The choker is finished with a diamond-studded, 14 karat bar clasp.
The choker is a one-of-a-kind piece but will be added to the website soon, most likely during either a holiday or Spring promotion. That is, IF our friends at the magazine send it back to us!
Oops! We take back the part about putting it up on the website at a later date. The necklace went the day the magazine hit the stands and now we have to recreate it for a short waiting list!
