Trends in Pearls Jewellery
Pearls are currently back in fashion again. Modern twists
show pearls being interspaced on gold or silver wire, floating on special synthetic cord
or as traditional pearl necklaces with suspended interchangeable pendants often
in materials like jade, peridot and lapis lazuli. The variety of new pearl designs,
interesting new shapes, sizes and colours, make them the perfect jewel essential
to the noughties. Pearls are also the perfect gift for anytime of year,
for any age group.
Regular readers of this site will know I not only recommend the best,
but also the affordable to those living in the real world. Now I want to introduce you to Marilyn Jones the independent designer of a
marvellous range of pearl and semi precious jewellery at Pearls Plus in London.
I've known Marilyn for over 30 years and she has always
impressed me with her fine eye for quality goods and attention to detail and
design. Marilyn Jones specializes in good quality affordable freshwater pearls and you
can read a little about this below.
Go directly to pictures below of Marilyn's pearl jewellery
from Pearl Plus.
Also below are more pictures of her pearls and the wide range
of available pearl colours. Most importantly Marilyn's designs are
wearable and pretty, yet can also be subtle, understated and unobtrusive. Most are inexpensive
enough to buy an item just to wear with one particular garment. Although
they are inexpensive, they do look expensive and similar items in shops cost
several times as much. When you enlarge these pictures you can see the
high quality of these pearls.
goods are reasonably and fairly priced, with fine gold or silver clasp or ear fittings,
all presented in simple packaging to keep costs down. I cannot emphasise
enough how reasonably priced her products are, which is why I think the news
about her needs sharing. Just look at these pictures
and the enlargements and note the high quality and lustre on these pearls and
the variety of colour schemes and designs possible.
Marilyn visited the far east about 10 years ago and was so
impressed by the quality of the pearls and delicacy of the gold fittings on
offer that she came home with a supply of material to make into jewellery.
In the 1990s as China became more experienced at pearl production, they vastly
improved the quality of the freshwater pearls they produced and slowly moved
away from the rice shaped pearls to better shaped potato and near round pearls.
Many Chinese produced freshwater pearls now rival the finest of Japanese
An experienced designer, Marilyn is skilled at making up her own ideas and can
also work with you to produce specific items for special occasions such as
weddings and anniversaries as well as party and everyday wear.
Marilyn already does corporate sales and visits many of the
staff at top banks and offices in London, so will be no stranger to some of you.
