Pearls on sale, is there a more tempting phrase to me? Several vendors I have bought from have some special offers in place.
At Kojima Company, you'll save 18% starting December 1 till December 18 with coupon code PEARLPRESENCE2014.
11-12 mm apricot baroques are a luscious lift in cold winter; on sale the price is about $495, a good buy for seriously sensuous presence. (Kojima will string and add a simple clasp at no charge; more ornate clasps would add to the price.)
Petite pearls for a petite budget, and still perfectly pearly; this four-strand lot of small (3-4mm) silver keshis would make an ideal layering piece, strung as a long rope. (Note: This size of keshi is not strung with knots between the pearls.) Sale price, about $60.
Petite necks, even luckier: only 15.5 inches in length but if you can wear it, a special piece, the delicate 'twig' necklace made of tiny stick pearls; sale price, $155.
I also admire how this silver and crystal bauble completes a South Sea stretch bracelet and funks it up a bit. Sale price, about $251.
Pearl Paradise's sale runs from 9 p.m. PST today (Thursday, November 27th) to I'm not sure when, and since this is going up before the sale starts, just go to the site and look. PP, renowned for classics, now offer some exotics and free-spirited designs.
They have hinted that they'll put some of their "Tahitian harvest" strands on sale; as owner Jeremy Shepard says, these pearls "represent what one would expect to find in a real pearl harvest"— a mix, rather than a match, of intriguing shapes and colours.
I've said for years that it's worth spending for genuine, quality pearls that light your face rather than soulless, slick fakes. Now, the biggest problem is making the choice; if it is the right moment, have a merry time deciding! (I receive no commission from any sale, just the joy of introducing you to these enchanting gifts of nature.)
