Pearls have traveled the millennia due to their natural rare beauty and have been recorded as far back as 5000 BC in areas of the Middle East. Historically, pearls were harvested predominantly from the Persian Gulf and Sri Lanka, but fresh water pearls were also found to be used in Europe. Columbus was the first to discover these amazing treasures as far west as South America, but naturally found pearls today are quite rare and extremely expensive. In modern times, pearls are typically “cultured” in farms, but creating matching “high-end” pearl necklaces is still a pricey process.

We use many different kinds of cultured pearls in our fabulous contemporary gold pearl drop earrings made with gold-filled findings, and we also use sterling silver and rose-gold filled findings for a variety of selection.

Corundum varieties also include diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires, and are considered the four “precious stones.” Although rubies are usually more pink than garnets, the “rhodolite” garnets resemble the pink tones of the ruby.
