The Queen of Gems - Pearls For Spring and Summer

The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens.”
– Grace Kelly
 A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.”
– Coco Chanel

We have a wonderful assortment of Czech glass pearls in all the popular colors and sizes.
What is important with pearls, is the woman who is wearing them.
Our freshwater pearl collection includes strands and pretty retail ready headers. We have all the classic pearls along with unique colors and shapes.
The "Must-Have" Findings
From headpins, jump rings, bezels and clasps to the bestselling plastic earring backs we hope our new packaging will make it easier for DIY jewelry makers to find what they need quickly. Our new and pretty packaging features a clear name and photo on the front and a quick “how to use” image on the reverse. Metal colors include silver, gold, antique copper, antique silver, antique gold and antique brass.
