On the wish list were large purple Edison pearls. While there are other suppliers that produce bead nucleated freshwater pearls (generic Edison pearls), those in the know, know that Grace always has the best selection of top grade pearls.
Great question! A few years ago, we would have said Blue by a mile, but these days, all eyes are on shades of delectable PURPLE.
Whether electric Violet colors like seen above, or Royal Purple Edison Freshwater pearls, Purple is easily the rarest and most sought after exotic pearl color today.
These exotic Tahitian pearls hail from the warm tropical atolls of Tuamotu and Gambier Islands, part of French Polynesia. Each pearl in this strand was grown for at least two seasons (minimum of 18-24 months). While most "discount" strands are only grown one season. The extra time in the water is what gives these pearls exceptionally thick nacre and a deep three-dimensional luster.
Because of our founder's direct contacts in French Polynesia, we're able to offer this strand of pearls for 1/5th the price of traditional luxury retailers -- without sacrificing quality, luster or color.
This strand is a multi-color mix of light and dark grey colors, with peacock, green, blue-green, silver, gold and cream overtones, very high luster and very light to no blemishes.
