Our Product Story  
Throughout history, the pearl, with its warm
inner glow and shimmering iridescence, has
been one of the most highly prized and sought
after gems. In ancient Rome, pearls were
considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and
social standing. The Greeks held the pearl in
high esteem for both its unrivaled beauty and its
association with love and marriage.

A natural pearl begins life as a foreign object,
such as a parasite or piece of sand, that
accidentally becomes lodged in the oyster's soft
inner body where it cannot be expelled. In an
effort to ease this irritant, the oyster's body
takes defensive action and begins to secrete a
smooth, hard crystalline substance around the
irritant in order to protect itself. This substance
is called nacre. As long as the irritant remains
within its body, the oyster will continue to
secrete layer upon layer of nacre around the
irritant. After a few years, the irritant will be
totally encased by the silky crystalline coatings.
The result is the lovely and lustrous gem called
a pearl.

Cultured pearls are formed by oysters in an
almost  identical fashion, except that man
surgically implants the irritant - a small piece of
polished shell - in the oyster, rather than
leaving it to chance. The process from then on
is the same as with natural pearls.

Swarovski (Austrian) Crystal is considered by
many people to be the finest quality, full-lead
crystal made today.  It contains a minimum of
32%PbO, making the crystal optically very
pure.  The crystal is then faceted with
tremendous precision, creating beautiful
prisms.  Brilliant colors and/or coatings are
added to these crystals to create pendants,
stones, and beads of dazzling beauty and
tremendous variety of shapes and sizes.  
Swarovski Crystal is unmatched in quality and
distinction .Swarovski beads are made in a
factory in Wattens, Austria. Swarovski crystal
beads are created using a formula perfected by
Daniel Swarovski and his three sons at the turn
of the 20th century. All Swarovski crystal beads
are fired using a combination of quartz sand
and natural minerals, then cooled slowly to
avoid causing stress to the crystals. The high
percentage of lead in all Swarovski crystal
beads (32% compared to competitors 24%) as
well as the secret manufacturing process
produces high quality Swarovski crystal beads
with a diamond like brilliance.
AB - Aurora Borealis is a coating that gives the
crystal a rainbow sparkle effect, it was inspired
by the Northern Lights.
Care Recommendations:
Pearls should not be exposed to water,
cleansers, excessive perspiration or prolonged
sunlight. They may be cleaned with a soft cloth.

Sterling silver will tarnish over time. To clean,
use a polishing cloth, commercial cleaner or
sprinkle a fair amount of dry baking powder on
a soft cloth. Rub carefully to avoid scratching
stones or glass components. When done,
shake the powder off.
