Welcome to the Seven Seas Pearls blog! My name is Julie and I will be the primary author of this blog. Personally, I am thrilled to be the writer for this blog because I have a deep love of pearls. To me, no piece of jewelry can compare with the classic elegance that pearls convey.
One of the things that we pride ourselves on at Seven Seas Pearls is that we believe it is crucial that our clients not only get a tremendous value for their money, but that they are also educated on what they are buying. For this reason, we have decided to start this blog in hopes of educating all lovers of pearls on how to identify high grade pearls from others, about the differences in shapes, colors, sizes – and most importantly how all this impacts the ultimate value of the pearl. But before we get into the nitty gritty details of pearls, it is probably more appropriate to explain a little bit more about who we are and the journey that has led us to where we are today.
Seven Seas Pearls is a third generation pearl jewelry company that has been specializing in various types of high quality pearls since 1946. While our main showroom is in Los Angeles, California, we have five locations around the world to include: Japan, Tahiti, Canada and Germany. One of the things that set us apart from other pearl jewelry stores is that not only are we a direct importer of the pearls that we showcase, but we directly export the pearls from various sources as well. Our office in Japan is located in Ise, which is considered to be the very heart of the pearl growing area of Japan. As a result, we interact directly with the pearl farmers on a daily basis. Our office in Tahiti as one might guess, exports the beautiful Tahitian pearls that everyone is so familiar with.
For us, the process of buying and pearls is one that has transcended through the generations with many of the same pearl farmers, their children and their grandchildren. In order to insure quality control, we personally sort, grade and drill each pearl. Because of this, we are able to offer our clients great flexibility in designing the perfect piece of pearl jewelry.
We are proud to offer everything from South Sea pearls, to Tahitian black pearls and Japanese Akoya pearls. Just like our wide range of colors, we have an incredibly selection of pearl sizes – ranging from 27.00mm to under 1mm. We invite you to check back for updated blogs, tour our website and stop in and meet us personally.
