What do you think when you hear someone mention a string of pearls? Or pearl earrings?
I think most people, myself previously included, think of the old standard white pearls. You know, the kind your mom and grandma used to wear! If that’s what you still think, you are going to like this!
Did you know that pearls come in SEVERAL different natural colors? Gold, black, brown, purple, pink…lots of colors. Honestly, before I got into the jewelry business, I thought they came in white/cream colors only. I think I might have seen different colors, but assumed they were dyed…or maybe I didn’t care enough to know because, quite frankly, I thought they were boring!
Wrong! Let me tell you! These ain’t your grandmas pearls!
I think it’s fascinating that pearls are the only gemstone that are made from a living creature. That in itself is worth mentioning. In it’s own paragraph!
Now, I’m not going to get all technical, and tell you about freshwater versus cultured, how to clean them and the different shapes. Really, I just want everyone to know how beautiful (because beautiful things are my thing) and fun pearls can be. If you really want to know all that, though, you can click HERE to read all about them on our website!
