Recent developments in harvesting and manufacturing techniques have paved the way for innovative and creative designs that are making pearls a very popular choice.
When thinking of pearls the first piece of jewelry that comes to mind is the classic strand of whites and pinks. Pearls were traditionally thought of as conservative jewelry worn in professional environment or affairs that called for conservative dress.

Pearls also come in various shapes, befitting the now fashionable asymmetric trend in jewelry.
